@ Dreamcast waggle sensor

The word prototype says it all...

And it doesn't look any close to wiimote and nunchuk design.

 

Some 3 or 4 people in here will never admit that ps move is a rip off.

 

Just google: "Sony copies Nintendo" and see for yourselves...

 

 

 

o'l because the search engine said so huh?

it seem's some fans do not want to admit , that sometime's companies have the same IDEA's at the same time.



I AM BOLO

100% lover "nothing else matter's" after that...

Yep you can also 'Google' the opposite too....heck yo ucan google 'Why Wii Suck" and you will see many articles, websites etc also....does that make it true as well? Maybe I should stick to that method as well then now

 

I can also say some 3-4 people here act like these are grocery stores we are talking about and not big corporations...as I have said in another thread it's like telling Verizon not to have a touch screen phone because Iphone made it famous. It's called the corporate world, what's successful will be followed and all possible markets will be tapped into, it's childish to think otherwise. Heck Wii definitely will come with a HD console sooner or later....let's see how people who are bashing Sony or MS say the same "ooh noez they copy catz" to Nintendo as well

yeah and nintendo fans say sony ripped off their motion controls, rofl, hipocrits.

As a Nintendo fan, I'm more or less upset that Sony couldn't come up with a better design than "Take the Wiimote and paint it black."

lol..how else do you make a "wand"?

the shape of each are not the same Sony's are more wand like the Wii mote is more "remote" like

so it's not a Wiimote painted black.

Dude.

 

versus

 

 

They don't look similar AT ALL. =/ I'm glad Sony made a motion controller. We'll see some awesome games coming. I am a little disappointed in the route they went to make the controller.

you and other's keep posting that , but are missing the real point:

HOW ELSE DO YOU DESIGN A WAND?

HUH?

ONCE AGAIN

DREAMCAST'S:

HERE WAS Sony's design back in 2004

Invention: Magic wand for gamers

For over 30 years, Barry Fox has trawled the world's weird and wonderful patent applications each week, digging out the most exciting, intriguing and even terrifying new ideas. His column, Invention, is now available exclusively online. Please send us your feedback.

Magic wand

PlayStation gamers are always looking for exciting new ways to control the onscreen action, but using a camera to track a player's body movement has not worked reliably, admits Sony. The camera gets confused by other things in the room.

Sony's new idea is to plug a webcam into the console, and give the gamer a handheld wand similar to a pocket flashlight. The wand has a battery, a few mouse-like buttons and several different coloured LEDs that can be switched on and off in various combinations.

By pressing the buttons and waving the wand towards the webcam, the gamer can click to shoot aliens, drag-and-drop images on screen and navigate menus.

The webcam is tuned to see only pure bright colours and map their motion in space, so it can ignore ordinary room lights. And if two people have wands with different coloured LEDs, they can play against each other.

Read about Sony's gaming wand here (pdf format).

So ONCE AGAIN HOW WOULD YOU DESIGN A "WAND".

 

 

Some people just seems to ignore these posts for some reason :D

What's your point? They talked about it. omg. So what? Nintendo DID it. 

 

I also remember reading that the Wiimote was initially planned as an add-on for the gamecube. They had the technology already made and ready. Sony "talked" about it. 

 

In response to your question on how to make a wand, explain the nunchuck-esque thing Sony made then? :)



We've had this thread before.

And it ends the same. Nothing accomplished and people geting pissed off.

Every company develops and patents new technologies. Most of those never see the light of day, or ever leave the prototype phase. The difference happens when said companies actually move to finish and sell a product.

People can post a dozen different photos or articles claiming someone was first in the motion controller realm, but what matters is that none of those technologies came to life...other than the Wii of course. So for some reason or another, Sony and Sega developed a motion tech, but failed to implement it. Maybe because there was no market for something like that at that time, maybe because it would have been entirely new.

But give credit where credit is due. Nintendo took a risk, developed a motion control as the first source of input in their new console. They created the Wii mainstream audience. If it wasnt for Nintendo, these new technologies wouldnt probably exist today. Sony expanded gameing from nerds into "gamers", and now Wii has expanded it again into everyone else.

Like countless others have said, when something works, there are bound to be imitations. The Classic Controller Pro is an ugly Dualshock controller, the dualshock is a SNES controller with handles, etc. It hardly matters who thought of it first, now its who can make it better. And competition is always a good thing.




It doesn't matter who invented what.... tbh the majority of Nintendo's innovations are not neccessarily their original concepts or whatever. Same with any of Sony's innovations.

What matters is.... If Nintendo had not used the Wii remote as the standard, would Sony be bringing out the Move now?
