Rumour: Sony dual camera detailed



Yet more rumours have emerged surrounding the next PlayStation, this time in respect of its dual camera.

According to VGLeaks, the 'dual camera' appears to be an evolutioned HD Eyetoy instead of a Kinect device.

According to the information posts it contains a pair of wide-angle cameras with each offering a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels (720p). Sound is processed by a 4 microphone array working at 48 Khz.

The main features of the new camera are said to be that it can recognise the user and log into the system based on this information and that it can also be used for video chat.

As far as gaming goes, VGLeaks suggests that it supports head and hand tracking as new game inputs. There is no indication as to whether it will support full body tracking like its rival Kinect at this time.

It's expected that the dual camera will be bundled with the next PlayStation.

As always take this information with a pinch of salt for now, although it's not unreasonable that this could be true.

Agreed, I am surprised no on has noticed that just because of Sonys Announcement loads of people suddenly had "info". These rumours are balls.

It better not be bundled to up the price. Should be like the Kinnect and you have to pay upcharge for it. If it is like the Kinnect, it just means it will spawn a load of crap EyeToy games. If not, it'll mean it doesn't spawn as much, but still crap Eyetoy games.

I think they are also copying the Wii U sales with the Vita.

True about the move. But isn't Kinect just a play on the eyetoy! Thats what i love about gaming tho, people can look at others tech and make a better/worse version of it! lets just throw them in a motion pit and LET THE FIGHT!

Hope its as good as the Playstation Eye. I love vaguely pointing in the direction of my TV and being ignored when I shoot something. I also love the option to spend hours recallibrating when you realise it is not as accurate as the Saturn gun from 1995. Happy days.

Jus sounds like a dumbed down version of kinect to me. Not interested in kinect so that explains how i feel about this....

A new genre has been developed: Dust gatherers. Although, in defence of the Kinect, I have used it in the last week or two - the PS3 Eye Toy has remained dormant since it arrived as part of an upgraded PS3 purchase - NEVER even tried it!
