Re: e3 happenings...

you can get in the game right now. CAVE evironments have been around a long time and can be very quick... in addition, goggles (both with monitor lenses or lasers that overlay a GUI over your RL vision) and motion sensors also work right now.

real life quake has been around since 1998 or so (q1 engine, but you can move around your RL city with your plastic gun).

ISU is putting up a $4mill CAVE environment (upgrading the old one) starting this summer (super high def in ALL directions, you literally walk into a room and the floor/ceiling/walls are the monitors.

they also have mist/fog based 3d displays you can use for true 3-d imaging (as well as holograms, but those are too limited to be useful).

in 2004 at e3 they had goggles and motion sensors for sword duels (with broomsticks)... people kept getting too into it and snapping the "swords" though (against walls and the ground on accident).

Re: e3 happenings...

i don't just mean goggles, i mean i have to be able to pick up stuff in the game with my hand and think it is in my hand, i don't care if I have to wear a body suit that makes me feel everything.

I think that a stripper game would sell well...

and actually either Ign or Gamespot had a small article about a game being designed for the ps3 that might also be going to the 360 was actually being played on a covered up 360 with a 3rd party PS3 controller plugged in through a usb port. and numerous game designers have said while the PS3 has the higher possible graphics, the 360 is much easier to design for because of how the software has to be divided up and have programs written for each and every little thing on the PS3's cell processor. it's going to be interesting if the risks sony is taking pays off cuz the 360 has a full year head start with quite a few awesome titles already out with more coming out later this year and Nintendo has a lot of positive buzz that might help it make a run at the top again or atleast be respectable in the home console war.

and sonic comes out around the 2nd or 3rd week of November. http://www.gamespot.com/xbox360/acti...hog/media.html

Re: e3 happenings...

MS releasing early was the best move they could make. Its much easier for them to launch new consoles ince they're very close to PC architecture, and that also makes them easier to design for.

as for sony, they always pull lame tricks like that at e3. usually they run pre-rendered cgi and call it "actual gameplay." actually runnning their demos on a hidden 360 is pretty funny though.

they had some @ E3 but they do have to be a bit more covered up than in past years. they also gave out fines for boothes being too loud.
