A couple of days ago, I felt like I was standing in a shark tank. Some time before that, Sony's head of PlayStation game development, Shuhei Yoshida, fed a dinosaur and the company's top PlayStation researcher, Richard Marks, stood next to the Mars rover—all in virtual reality, of course. With any luck, you will…
Richard Marks has an impressive resume: He has created the EyeToy, the PlayStation Eye and the PlayStation Move. He also likes buttons.
The PlayStation Move thrives in darkness, could enable a new kind of Greek god game, has 10 hours of battery life, a mystery port and a simple innovation that could be profound.
Sony and Microsoft both spent ample time during their respective E3 2009 press conferences to wow us with camera-based motion control, courtesy of the PlayStation Eye and Project Natal. But Sony's "magic wand" tech isn't exactly new.
