Kinect for PS3? Sony working on another camera for Playstation consoles.
By Kevin Douglas Femmel
(Feb. 20, 2012)– You could say Microsoft’s Kinect for Xbox 360 is simply doing the same thing Sony’s EyeToy tried to do for the PS2 back in 2003. Well, it turns out Sony doesn’t care who was first, they just want the success of Kinect.
Patents made by Sony during 2011 are coming out that detail a camera based motion controller for Playstation consoles. It pretty much looks to work in the exact same way as Kinect, err… EyeToy?
I don’t know at this point what good another camera accessory for the PS3 would do. Perhaps when next generation rolls around we’ll see Sony try to replicate Kinect’s success, but I think we’ll have to wait.
