That's freaking awesome!!
It's a good idea but I think prices will be high for a pack containing, but not a console and it will not be highly profitable for Sony to sell low so it has an announcement to follow closely.
this zooming is cool stuff. i saw this demo a while ago but it still hasn't lost its magic on me. i'm wondering if this will be used in any games or if this will only be used for other apps. i remember sony giving a statement a while ago about letting developers make custom map apps and the like for the ps3 as part of a new app store. maybe this is one step closer to sony launching their ps3 app store.
That would be a cool interface for an OS...
Back on topic: the app in the video feels to me like a PPC tech demo that was never ment for actual deployment, while cool i don't rely see the relevance of the whole thing in comparison to the ps3s other problems and consumer demand for features that are perfectly in there power to program should be addressed before giving us crap like this...
I feel an app store full of third party apps is a very good idea, and a good move on Sony's part, but only if the right apps are created as there isn't much need for apps on a console compared to apps on a mobile device such as the iphone.
Certain issues have been addressed by the customer and acknowledged by Sony countless times, and yet nothing seems to present itself in a productive manner and is not resolved, meaning the issues are reiterated each and every time a new FW is released.
but sony and Toshiba i think seen a more profitable way out if they made cell workstations and sells them as at a premium (honestly i would rather build my own server than buy one of theirs). they began making ps3 slims to phaze out linux and it was working, then geohot started public information about him exploiting the ps3 through a feature sony gave us as a gift of good will in the beginning... and the perfect scapegoat was born they can take linux.
Can't wait for E3 see whats actually coming down the pipes for this year instead of these months of speculation before it.
i can honestly only think of someone making an alternate browser, an alternate media player/interface and several silly social networking apps (who honestly uses the facebook thing on their PS3 now??) but if Sony ask the right people the right questions about what type of applications they wish to see on their PS3 (instead of 12 year olds asking for "boom headshot @deadperson" to be posted on twitter every time they kill someone on MW2) then it could lead to a more fruitful and productive use of peoples consoles.
I personally like apps which better the system i'm using such as performance tools or something which is productive when being utilised.
I would also like to see a file type/video conversion tool which could be used on your PS3, so if there is an unsupported file (seriously... mkv's STIL AREN'T SUPPORTED??) then you can select the media in question and convert it to a PS3 recognised file type.
A personal favourite would be a torrent application (popcornhour can do it!).
however i recognise the security breaches which can come with alot of the applications that others would want and so is another reason why i dont believe an app store would surface (not in the way that would be successful and/or useful) even though i would like to be optimistic about a PS3 app store.
