According to details emerging from Japanese sources this morning, the PS4’s Dual Camera array will be used for more than just working out where a given DualShock 4 controller might be. Apparently, assuming correct translations, the camera block will be able to detect a user’s location in the room regardless of whether they’re holding a DualShock 4 or a Move controller.
That sounds like Kinect levels of tech.
Additionally, the PS4 also seems able to push out the Vita’s full native resolution for Remote Play titles, which should be the majority of PS4 games from launch onwards. Being able to play full PS4 titles on the Vita will be great, assuming Sony nail any lag problems – something Nintendo did well with the Wii U by dedicating a distinct Wi-fi system to doing just that.
Details are emerging on the PS4 continuously after last week’s New York reveal, and hopefully we’ll learn more as additional Japanese magazines get published.
