XBox 360: A Glimpse Into the Future with 3DV Systems
Recently there's been a lot of talk about Microsoft picking up 3DV systems. This would be implemented onto their future console known as of now, the Xbox 720.
If rumors are true, Microsoft's next console will utilize motion sensing in a true next-generation way. Heck, maybe it can even surpass the Wii with its outstanding motion controls.
If for some reason you don't know, the PS3 has motion controls as well; unfortunately, developers haven't been able to utilize this feature to the best of its experience. Back in 2002, Sony presented the Eye Toy in which your body movement is the controller.
Although a ground breaking idea, people weren't really feeling it back then. The games weren't that good, or at least good enough when compared to the other PS2 titles. People were more focused on all those AAA titles Sony was pushing.
Sadly, Sony dropped the ball with the Eye Toy; it was not promoted right and it got pushed to the corner of the room. Few developers would make games for it which in the end made for a cheapened experience.
Microsoft is looking to revive this technology now and take advantage of its full potential, just as Wii has done. If Microsoft can implement this feature on 360 it would be great seeing how massive the 360 fan base is. If they use this feature on a new console, it would be successful only at a competitive price.
