Gaming peripherals are on the wane these days. The now not so humble controller has proven to be the console gamer’s main choice with Microsoft’s Kinect, Sony’s Move and Nintendo’s Wii-remote often gathering dust in the corner right next to the balance board and multiple Guitar Hero instruments.
The Oculus Rift has certainly whet appetites with the promise of new gaming experiences, particularly as 3D TVs have not been enough to give players that extra immersion into their favourite titles. Sony, of course, has been working on its own headset, known as ‘Project Morpheus’. Now it seems that the Move concept could be revived for use in conjunction with the Morpheus and the PlayStation Camera to provide accurate 3D immersion for the PS4.
When interviewed on Pocketlint, PlayStation exec Shuhei Yoshida expressed the view that although the PS Move was “a bit ahead of its time”, he was still excited about technology that would allow studios to use “3D positional tracking to make games”.
Sony, please just don’t use this to just make more cheerleader games.
