"Head Tracking" In Gran Turismo 5 Via PlayStation Eye
We all know that Gran Turismo 5 will be another landmark achievement in the world of virtual racing. But perhaps we don't know everything there is to know...
Everyone is talking about it: according to GTPlanet, the PlayStation Eye can play a very significant - and outrageously cool - role in GT5. The Eye can do "head tracking" and while you might not consider this relevant to a racer, think about being able to turn your head and directly manipulate the "cockpit camera." You can even watch this amazing feature in action via the link above; it's amazingly sweet in just about every possible way. And as for the description from series creator Kazunori Yamauchi:
"...the movement of Cockpit Camera interface (confirmed in full 3-D. The camera can be fully manipulated and you can opt to have your head tracked by the PSEye)"
Isn't this just plain nuts? And if you want to get even more pumped, check out the full feature list for GT5; it's absolutely chock full of truly incredible stuff. Is this enough of an excuse to snag the PS Eye for $32.99? Imagine what else we could do with it...! The possibilities are almost limitless, and if we're going to have the most engaging and immersive racing experience ever, it's features like this that will give Polyphony's gargantuan effort an even bigger boost.
