According to Kotaku it’s thanks to all the Beta testers. Next to submitting more then a thousand bugs, the Beta testers called for four player split screen. Now we get it, I know a lot of people will be happy about it, not in the least our very own BlackStaffer.
Four player split screen was a standard feature about a decade ago. With the next gen consoles it got scratched, because of the “Everyone has an internet connection at home, so you should use that instead” mentality. I for one am not such a person. Everyone on this site knows I don’t game online too much. I do find it fun to play a game with a friend at my place. That’s why I own games like SingStar and Buzz, they offer great group value.
To those that were in the Beta and requested this feature: Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
One of the PlayStation Move demos at GDC shows full body tracking using an on-screen body puppet. It does it by combing the Move and the PlayStation Eye. The PS Eye can detect faces, even recognize gender, age, smiles and if your eyes/mouth are open or not. There isn’t a video that I could find of this exact demo. But it sounds pretty similar to this post I made back in September 2009.
SCEA president Jack Tretton revealed that Sony won’t be the only company that will make games for the Playstation move. In fact, a total of 36 developers and publishers are already signed up to do so.
Some of the Playstation Move supporters are big names like Capcom, Activision, Sega, EA, Konami, and Square Enix.
Below is the full list of publishers:
Here’s the B-roll that was mentioned in one of my other posts. To save time and space, I am combining images and whatnot from games listed in the b-roll as well. Some of these games look rather cool actually (The Shoot looks extremely fun!). Since we already know a bit about EyePet, I excluded new images for that, since there really isn’t anything new from those anyway. Enjoy!
