    PS3 gets headtracking?!

    First and foremost... for any mods wondering I posted this in Wii Chat instead of the PS3 forum because alot of people expected Nintendo to grab this up for their console, but ironically PS3 did it!

    Last week, Sony showed off head tracking software for the PlayStation 3 using just the PS Eye camera (via MTV Multiplayer). That's right, no crazy hardware configurations devised by third parties (e.g. Johnny Lee, Electronic Arts), just software that identifies your head and its movement.

    A representative said the head tracking software has not been announced for any titles, but we'd love to see it show up soon for pretty much any genre of game. Video embedded after the break. (Note: It doesn't work for users with Canada, Japan or U.K. IPs.) While you're at it, (re)watch Lee's video to get a better idea of the potential of head tracking software (also embedded after the break).

    Wii has a head tracking feature with its remote. That one block puzzle game w/ Steven Speilburg directing will have it as an easter egg. I can only hope developers take this into consideration :3
    You can see example of it, among other sweet stuff you can do w/ the wii mote here:

    You mean for the method of Johnny? the most basic thing you can do, like he said in the video, is mount the sensor bar to a hat or something w but if you happen to get some IR lights you can find some good way to work with them. I think in the Bloom Blox game you can use the remote in somewhat for head track? oO Don't know too much detail on that.

    no... i've seen johnny's old video..

    i meant how does the PS3 do it w/out IR headgear?!?

    how can it track your head... bluescreen? wear a reflector sticker between your eyes?

    hard to picture.

    They are not sure head tracking will make the final cut in Bloom Blox and the preview I read on it never mentioned it. I think this will be interesting to watch develop.

    You need a PS Eye camera, idjut, that tracks your head movements.

    That doesn't sound fun to me at all, talk about a sore neck.
