PlayStation 4 PlayRoom Shows Next Gen Potential
Sony has shown off a few things at this year's Tokyo Game Show, but one of the more interesting things is the PlayStation 4 PlayRoom, a fun little gimmick that shows off the capabilities of motion capture, facial recognition and other technology related to the PlayStation Eye.
Simply put, the PlayStation 4's PlayRoom is a collection of features that showcase concepts and technologies of the PlayStation Eye, almost as if to say "We don't really have a use for it yet, but it's still a good piece of tech so come back when we have something really cool to show you."
To be honest though, the PlayRoom is pretty cool, even if it is just a toy or a gimmick.
Players will be able to interact with the PlayRoom by moving the controller, pressing buttons and moving themselves in front of the camera.
The PlayRoom will then show off all kinds of cool futuristic images and interactive scenarios on-screen.
You'll be able to do a few things such as play air hockey, or kick around small little creatures that according to the PlayRoom live inside your DualShock 4 controller. I'm sure the PlayRoom will be a blast for kids, and enough to make you go "ooh, that's pretty cool."
Sony plan to add DLC to the PlayRoom in the future, and it will be readily available to use for free on every PlayStation 4 at launch.
