Sony Bend’s Unannounced PS4 Game to Include “Complex Human AI Behaviors;” Based on Unreal Engine

by on April 5, 2014 11:32 AM 105

During the launch ceremony of the PS4, SCE Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida teased an unannounced PS4 project by Sony’s Oregon-based Bend Studio, but nothing was announced about it since, and the project is being kept closely under wraps.

Today an interesting career opportunity ad has been published by Sony, looking for a Senior AI Programmer for the Bend studio, and it gives us some very interesting information on said game:

_____________

We are looking for an AI Programmer to help develop complex Human AI Behaviors for a current working title being developed by Bend Studio.

This is not an entry level position and applicant must be able to demonstrate current working knowledge in the field of AI development for recent game applications. This role is closely related to both a physics and animation engineer.

Responsibilities

  • Key contributor to the development of state-of-the-art AI systems and behaviors, including path-finding, behavior execution, and autonomous decision making.
  • Develop robust and reusable AI frameworks that can be managed and used for implementation by design staff.
  • Maintaining a strong collaborative work relationship with fellow programmer and design staff.

Qualifications

Key Skills

  • Strong 3D Math skills.
  • Strong C++ and software engineering skills.
  • Working knowledge of current AI architectures and algorithms.
  • Strong interest in researching and developing new AI related technologies.

Preferred Skills & Experience

  • Current and Next Gen game console experience strongly desired.
  • Strong understanding and familiarity with current UNREAL technology desired.

_____________

The preference for a candidate with current and next gen console experience identifies the PS4 project, as it’s quite unlikely that it would be mentioned to work on PS Vita (besides, Sony Bend isn’t a big studio, counting about 40 developers, so it’s unlikely for them to be working on multiple projects at the same time), while the part about “strong understanding and familiarity” with Unreal technology gives us a clear hint on what engine the game will use.

Of course the most relevant part is about the “complex Human AI Behaviors” and  “state-of-the-art AI systems and behaviors, including path-finding, behavior execution, and autonomous decision making.”

Now, if we can delve for a moment in the realm of pure speculation, that kind of description seems just perfect for a stealth-action game, and you probably already know that Sony Bend developed the Syphon Filter series since its inception when the studio was still named Eidetic. A Sony developer also name-dropped the series’ protagonist Gabriel Logan lately, while it was definitely a vague statement.

Of course that’s far from iron-clad, but I’m surely not the only one that would love to see a return of the Syphon Filter franchise with all the bells and whistles on PS4. Will we hear more at E3?

    moon collider already working on much much more advanced AI than this so dunno why they don’t just license it from them. then again maybe other games are locked out form using it till sometime next year

    • Bankai

      You haven’t even seen the AI in action yet.

      • Gannicus

        moon colliders? it going be in a game called umbra, not sure if its out yet and someat called rick future, its interesting to see on there videos how AI the AI works though, its trundling along and has white boxes then if it goes near a cliff its blanks red to stay steer clear etc. Pends what the game is going to be far at how advanced they want the AI to be I spose

        • Bankai

          No, this AI. You’re just making baseless, uninformed and biased assumptions.

          • Gannicus

            ok ok. wait till it comes out and we’ll have a chat then, the only problem with anything anyone does it always gets compared to someat so pends how big of a deal they make out this AI is.

          • Boštjan Ivanušič

            Dude. Chill. This unannouced game for PS4 isn’t even released yet. How can you POSSIBLY know that the game you are saying has far more complex A.I that this game has?

          • Gannicus

            Because it needs it, as it will be doing a lot more things than any game to date needs, I think. Think AI needed for multiple genres, all that needs be under one roof + a lot more

          • Boštjan Ivanušič

            You still don’t know that it will be better.

          • Gannicus

            yeah true, but heres hoping haha

    • Giuseppe Nelva

      How do you know that that AI is “Much more advanced than this” since you know very little about it, and nothing about this?

      Logic. You need some.

      • Gannicus

        well it is atm cus they havnt made it yet. so they’ve got a lot more time since kythera is middleware surely its got be better to license AI from some one that’s already built and possibly modify it saving on time? not trolling here but ive seen many ppl comment on infamous’s AI at how stupid it is, although tbh like many FPS style games most of it is dumb. Maybe cus they aren’t designed to be alive for very long so doesn’t matter.
        Wonder what game there building if its an RTS or game similar to that AI needs to be very good, if its not its easy to defeat. Wonder if sony want to get like EA where EA have built frostbite to use over multiple studios maybe sonys got an engine now like whatever infamous uses or whatever Naughty Dogs using and wants there own AI to use across multiple games. Do you think there trying to get a lot of inhouse stuff?

        • cozomel

          So explain to me how infamous AI is any dumber than any other games AI and tell me what game has good AI. Cuz I’ve never seen a game with good AI in my life.

          • Gannicus

            also ive got to ask im not sure isn’t AI CPU bound? if it is theres only so much thr sony 1st partys can deliver out of a tablet C{PU which is what it is. You provide to many complex calculations it cant do it??? ts my opinion is that true or not?

          • Gannicus

            oh and seems like CnC or any RTS has better AI than any FPS out att the moment

          • Gannicus

            you really want to watch??? watch this start frm 6minutes in funniest thing is this is real AI not when they want it to do its real :–

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9-wXjEggms

          • Gannicus

            hope you wtch it and realize the level of AI that’s needed for all the different types of style needed… it is more complex to have most under 1 rof but hopeyou enjoy it :D

          • Gannicus

            ok simple, best AI in games are usually RTS

        • qCzar

          Sir. You need a sanity check.

          Just because it isn’t demo’d anywhere or they haven’t talked about it doesn’t mean “they havnt [sic] made it yet.” There’s many thousands of hours involved – that’s more hours than you went to school for! – in creating something this complex from the ground up. I assure you that they’ve made the basis of it already. How do I know? After 5 months of the PS4 on the market, Sony Bend are not sitting around a table anymore discussing logistics. They are actively coding and testing the AI and then going back and tweaking it to be better. I can also assure you this isn’t something that started during the PS4′s “Launch Ceremony.” They likely have a good year now on this project.

          Sony isn’t going to “modify” any studios work. That’s stupid on their part. In order to get the AI to work to the max performance of the PS4, Sony needs to build to the hardware which is something current engines and AI can’t do. So tweaking these doesn’t make any sense.

          AI in games are actually incredibly smart. They’re just dumbed-down because the human (that’s you) get’s infuriated when you get out-smarted. ( Article: http://www.kotaku.com.au/2014/03/maybe-we-cant-handle-smart-enemies-in-our-games/ ) Whether or not they live long is irrelevant.

          • Gannicus

            ok lthe game im talking about need comp-lex ground combat AI, especially where new cover and move and fire techniques are developed, nil scripted completely dynamic… also need space advanced combat AI to get close AND avoid each other also need to navigate dynamic asteroid movement independtntly, each race and winman has its own AI in terms of fighting abilities, NPC in ststaion have there “own lives”, tjheyll also adapt to times of properity or recession and a WHOLE LOT MORE…. yeah sound like some run of the mill AI to me… come back when youhave a argument to arfgue!

          • qCzar

            Firstly, your grammar is insanely terrible. What you’re describing exists though. Look at Watch_Dogs; If you aren’t careful your face is put on TV and the public disapproves of you. Infamous as well, if you’re evil the citizens aren’t going to be asking for your help. As for different AI personalities look at games with a diverse environment. For example, Call of Duty Ghosts. There’s a mission where you sneak in a breach the compound and once you are discovered the enemies try to stop your escape. They come at you with riot shields and without protection. The guys with riot shields push towards you while the ones without take cover. Is there a dynamic in-place where if the riot shield is dropped they go for cover? Likely, but I haven’t triggered it yet.

            As for NPC’s having their own lives look at the Elder Scrolls, most recently Skyrim. NPC’s moved, had their own house and job; I walked in to a house once and some lass was getting attacked by a bear. If you were a vampire or in werewolf form guards would attack you. These things exist. And it’s exactly where developers are headed too. They’re giving personalities to individual characters. If you listen in some games while sneaking (perhaps Tomb Raider, The Last of Us) enemies will express a desire to kill you while others might want to capture you for a reward. And if you pay attention in the heat of battle, those enemies will either charge at you tactically while other fellows will try to lure you into a trap.

            Open your eyes man. Play a game and get involved in the complete story that the NPCs will talk about. Developers want you to play the campaign but the story is more than that, it’s the dialogue of the enemies as you’re sleuthing behind cover or wandering about a town in Skyrim and the characters strike up conversations with each other. Stop and listen. They might talk about how their dog got killed by a pest troll near the towns bridge or their farm got demolished by a dragon from the mountains to the North. Take out the troll/dragon and the townsfolk react and thank your heroism. What you talk about is in a lot of games already.

          • Gannicus

            apart from ghosts it was ok, I wasn’t explicitly saying it hasn’t done before,… but it was done on a more advanced scale thn befo9re and more possibilities watch dogs is a very good example but on a general level term what SC is trying to achieveb is reduclous, there sooo much there trying achieve its crazy than there usual stuff but its so mental I think they can do it cus there is no publisher forcing a rela4se date for a start

          • Gannicus

            Do you know the game im talking about by the way, if not prolly don’t get it btw just spent a $125 ona ship cus I was druinjk to make suire I play in the ermmmm ship flying module… what am I playing??

    ” B-but , PS4 don`t have the cloud powers for A.I !! This isn`t supposed to be possible !!!! Only Xbox One has that feature !!!!!! “

    • twinspectre

      well said

    • Thats Mr. Smoove

      sorry but the Cloud isn’t just for AI control someone told you wrong

      • shinitaru

        We know, its also used for servers, game save stores, account migration and other features that Sony, Valve, and EA were doing long before MS decided that it was an Xbox exclusive feature

        • Thats Mr. Smoove

          And for Improved graphics and framerates. Allows developers to make more immersive worlds. A game like BF4 can have a map thats completely destructible without one frame rate drop.

          http://www.vg247.com/2014/04/03/microsoft-tech-demo-shows-off-power-of-xbox-ones-cloud/

          • shinitaru

            “And for Improved graphics and framerates.”

            Oh yeah, and they also use it to tell fairy tales.

            “A game like BF4 can have a map thats completely destructible without one frame rate drop.”

            That can only be played on one of their network nodes….

          • Thats Mr. Smoove

            it was an example of what it can do. I didn’t say BF4 actually does that.

          • shinitaru

            Its an example of what it can do under controlled dream world conditions over a gigabit network, not what it can do in the real world which is what it is doing already, game saves, streaming AI, server farm, account access

          • Thats Mr. Smoove

            Yea because the XO has only been out 5 months. 2 games used a portion of it. It’s no dream. We just seen a demonstration developers can make it a reality.

          • shinitaru

            Oh, sorry were you under the impression that they started only 5 months ago? Its an impressive demonstration to be sure, but it still has to overcome the limitations of the internet infrastructure that it has to run on. Not possible, they showed you a cool proof of concept, not their fault that you jump to a conclusion, that is only the bonus

          • Thats Mr. Smoove

            Didn’t jump to a conclusion, just responded to the demonstration like everyone else.

          • shinitaru

            Okay, then if you think that what you saw in that presentation will be integrated into games anytime in the next decade, then yes, you jumped to a conclusion.
            It will work in very limited ways, static elements, lighting, AI, etc. You will see some advances there over the next few years but anything the requires real time rendering, forget it

          • Junoh315

            That’s basically just streaming. I can go ahead and create a PC with two Titan Zs in it if I had the money and then go ahead and play games on a crappy laptop with integrated Intel graphics through my local area network.

          • shinitaru

            It was my understanding that this was a cloud processing demonstration. If it was just game streaming, it wouldn’t be news at all

          • Negi Springfield

            ” A game like BF4 can have a map thats completely destructible without one frame rate drop. “

          • Thats Mr. Smoove

            It’s ok to be a pony. You’re just a dumbass. Why highlight half of my statement? I was clearly giving an example of what the cloud can potentially do. Idiots

          • TraceSkipper

            hype

      • Negi Springfield

        Oh sorry ! I forgot ! It was also said to help boost Resolution and Frame-rate , But I wonder why all of their games are still below 1080P and couldn`t run a steady FPS ?

        • Thats Mr. Smoove

          Lol. Xbox one had one game at launch that had frame rate issues (had) and that was dead rising 3. Xbox one actually have more 60fps games than PS4. For a console that can’t do 1080p it’s the only next gen console with an exclusive that’s running 1080p 60fps. But all the new improvements that’s coming is all hype. Every time Microsoft has something good coming you guys seem to hate it. Funny thing is you don’t own the xo so it doesn’t effect you in anyway. Play your super powerful box that doesn’t give powerful games

          • such.wow

            You forgot Ryse.
            Also, Resogun is an exclusive, that’s 1080p/60fps.

          • Thats Mr. Smoove

            Actually, Ryse didn’t have framerate issues. Ran at a smooth 30. I don’t recall anyone reporting. All the hours I put into it maybe the graphics was too good to notice it.

          • such.wow

            I’ve seen proof otherwise, it drops to 16fps at times, and it’s hardly ever 30fps.

          • Thats Mr. Smoove

            I’m sure you seen proof. Please show it. Journalist didn’t seem to mention it and I didn’t seem to see it.

          • such.wow

            “Originally touted as a solid 30fps experience, Ryse misses the mark
            more often than we’d like with frame-rates often fluctuating between
            26-28fps and the most challenging situations even seeing the frame-rate drop into the teens.”

            http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-vs-ryse-son-of-rome

            Enjoy.

          • Thats Mr. Smoove

            That’s your proof! Can’t argue that. Still I didn’t notice a thing still to this day. If the framerate drops here and there ok, but a framerate issue” would be something that just messes the experience constant hiccups etc. I didn’t experience that with Ryse. I’m sure you didn’t realize kill zone was running 720p online when you were playing it. I know it’s okay.

          • such.wow

            Exactly, it didn’t stop you from enjoying the game and even now you know it did drop frames, it shouldn’t affect your enjoyment that you did have with it. Although, Killzone MP is an odd thing, it’s not 720p, it’s some weird thing where its something like 960ix1080p when moving. It’s pretty clever stuff and MS might want to study it and implement it with some of their games (although with Killzone MP it made it look like some kind of motion blur, which would be better if they could reduce that effect).

          • Negi Springfield

            Dead Rising 3 is the only game that had frame-rate issues ? O’really ?

            How about Ryse ? A Game that`s been down-graded to 900P at 30 FPS , Yet it still dips into the teens around 12-16 FPS.

            And you`re using Forza 5 as excuse for 1080P at 60 FPS ? How pathetic , Please don`t mention that down-graded game as an excuse.

          • Thats Mr. Smoove

            Yea, don’t talk to me until a ps4 game comes out that actually uses the “all might power” of the PS4. Actually show me a game on the ps4 that can’t be done on the XBO. Your mad at my opinion yet u have this power brick that hadn’t produced a decent game yet

          • shinitaru

            This just isn’t your day, is it?

          • Negi Springfield

            LOL !! That can`t be done ?!

            Have you heard about Infamous Second Son ? That game couldn`t be done on Xbox One if that title appeared on Xbox One , Open World , Gorgeous particle effects , Gorgeous detail and Beautiful Lighting running at 1080P at 30 FPS above.

            Mediocre games like Titanfall , Dead Rising 3 , Killer Instinct , Forza 5 and probably Ryse can run better on PS4 without any down-grades or Help from the clouds just to push graphics , resolution and frame-rate whatsoever if they were there.

            Soon enough , Ready At Dawn will be the first , With their brand new IP , The Order 1886 , Will make your Jaw drop to the ground , Evolution Studio`s DriveClub will put shame to your ” Forza 5 ” with outstanding graphics and Studio`s like Naughty Dog with its Uncharted 4 and Santa Monica will set the bars higher.

          • Thats Mr. Smoove

            Ok, lmao you just executed how to be a pony at heart. You dismissed all the games that everyone raved about. Driveclub is non existent. I’m glad you like infamous but to say it can’t be done on the xbox one is just ludicrous. The order 1886 was already done on an xbox platform it’s called gears of war. Ryse is still best looking next gen game by far. Infamous looks fun but it’s no graphical leap plus it lacks shadows. But you at-least you have particle effects. You say the good games on xbo are bad because there on xbo but if they ran on ps4 they would be good. Wow? You mad that xbox uses cloud, dx12 to help push the power is like me being mad the that ps4 uses gdrr5 to make games better! You’re not a pony you’re a bored lonely idiot.

          • Negi Springfield

            ” The Order 1886 was already done on an Xbox Platform , Its called Gears of War ”

            Okay ? I thought we`re talking about PS4 Games that can`t be done on the XBOX One Platform ? Please don`t go off-topic.

            ” Ryse is still best looking next gen game by far , Infamous looks fun , But its no graphical leap , Plus it lacks shadows , But atleast you have particle effects ”

            Boy , Aren`t you stupid and blind ? Can`t you see the big picture here ? Ryse is a linear game , Infamous Second Son is an Open world game , Infamous Second Son being an Open-world game while handling that gorgeous graphics at 1080P at 30-40 FPS above is pretty impressive , While Ryse being a linear game , It got down-graded from its Original superior version to able to work on Xbox One , Originally , Ryse was supposed to have more polygons and Was supposed to be 1080P , But look at what happened , 900P at 30 FPS , Dips into the teens around 12-16 FPS , So much for a Next Gen Title , Huh ?

            ” You say the good games on Xbox One are bad because there on Xbox One , But if they ran on PS4 , They would be good , Wow ? ”

            Again , Stupidity , I never said anything like that , I said if it were on the PS4 Platform , They would PERFORM BETTER than the Xbox One Version , Get it right you idiot , Also , Who said those games were good ? They are pretty much mediocre , In my opinion.

            ” You mad that Xbox uses the cloud , DX12 to help push the power is like me being mad that PS4 uses GDDR5 to make games Better ! ”

            I`m not mad at all , In fact , I`m laughing my ass off , Why would I be mad when the Cloud is something imaginary ? Also , Direct X12 ? That isn`t even on Xbox One yet , It`ll be released in 2015 and Who knows if it`ll be on Xbox One ? Also , You`re mad that the PS4 uses GDDR5 to make games better ? Not only you`re mad , Its that you`re a jealous bitch , While you sit your ass waiting for DX12 to come on Xbox One to push graphics , It`ll be outdated by the time it comes.

          • Thats Mr. Smoove

            I’m crying wow. Because you say the games is mediocre that means it’s law it’s fact. But average score for an xbox game has been 8/10. Ryse was downgraded like watch dogs and infamous and yet no graphical change and yet still best looking next gen game. You would be worth talking to had you not been so biased. Go have fun with you’re fun gorgeous looking games and I’ll go enjoy my certified mediocre games. Why would I be mad at what’s in the playstation? I’m a consumer, decision maker, I would be the one purchasing it so if I was to buy it why would I be jealous ? That makes no sense. I can see if I put out a console and it didn’t sell and it was less powerful yeah I’d likely be a little jealous. But why would I a “consumer” be jealous of a company and it’s products? Lol. Done.

          • shinitaru

            because pride and misguided loyalty. You will never buy a PS product because you’ve allowed yourself to be convinced that they are the enemy. Its clear in the way that you can’t seem to promote the Xbox without first bashing the Playstation. Its in everything that you say. I don’t have anything against you, but don’t try to play the victim here, it doesn’t fit you.

            BTW, Infamous was not downgraded, you guys cling to that misconception based on lighting changes made is one area of the game. There was no downgrade, already been debunked but you guys wont hear any of that at all.

          • Thats Mr. Smoove

            Cough, cough. Here’s where you are wrong. I have nothing again sony and the playstation brand. I do dislike there fans, that’s incorrect some of there fans. I don’t have loyalty to anyone or any brand. I’ve owned many playstation products. I don’t a have PS4 yet. The reason I haven’t brought one yet is because you’re right I let the ps fanboys steer me away from it. There was a time that I was playstation everything. Ask me my top 10 fav games of all time? Ratchet & clank, jack &daxter, and The Get Away will be in that list. I nearly cried when it was time to trade in PS2 and my GameCube to get a head start on generation 360 & PS3. Can’t judge me if you don’t know me

            With bucketloads of stupid statements like those, it’s easy to judge you – looking at your comment history you continually try to emphasise that you’re unbiased, but then make continually stupid statements that clearly show you’re biased towards microsoft. Then you wonder why people kick up a fuss when you’re on a site called DualShockers…

          • Thats Mr. Smoove

            And you are? You shockers archive my comments? Wow. Cool but scary. I’m guessing you agree with negi Springfield. He said some ridiculous things. But I own an xbox. I’m stupid. Boohoo

          • Negi Springfield

            So apparently , I`m the one who said some ridiculous things , Wow , Just wow.

            Sorry , But no , I`m not one of those people who got their heads on stuck in the Clouds.

          • Thats Mr. Smoove

            You said Forza 5, Titanfall,Ryse, Killer instinct were all mediocre ( as if you played them) that’s pretty ridiculous ! I’m not surprised this is a Playstation site so anything Xbox or Non playstation is mediocre to you guys. I rather have my head in the clouds than have my head in a box.

          • Negi Springfield

            So you assume I haven`t played those games , Right ?

            Let me give you my opinion , Although it doesn`t matter.

            Titanfall , I played on PC , The parkour and the mechs were pretty fun , But the campaign just really sucks ass and I know you`ve heard this alot , But it really felt like Call of Duty , To be honest.

            Ryse , I played it on my friends house , Since he`s got a Xbox One , So i had the chance to play Ryse , To be honest , I`m never really ” in ” to Hack and Slash games like this , Especially God of War , So I say it was repetitive.

            Killer Instinct on the other hand , Was pretty good , Double Helix did a pretty good job on this one and Since I like fighting games such as Tekken , I`d give this a pass , Also I never noticed that i called it Mediocre lol.

            “Mediocre games like Titanfall , Dead Rising 3 , Killer Instinct , Forza 5 and probably Ryse can run better on PS4 without any down-grades or Help from the clouds just to push graphics , resolution and frame-rate whatsoever if they were at the PS4 Platform”

            That’s what you said. And I’ve said on many occasions that infamous looks fun! The Order would be the game that will make me buy the PS4 this year if it comes out. I was also one of the few who praised knack for being fun and enjoyed my time with it. Never was fan of KillZone I only played the first 2. Missed out on first infamous and played the 2nd. I never said PS4 wasn’t good and never denied that it was powerful. My thing was the lack of games available. But everytime i mention Xbox or speak in the Xbox defense its assumed that iHate playstation

            Not judging you, I’m pointing out the inconsistencies in what you say and how you act. For example, you come here to a PS topic to whine about being called a fanboy just for saying good things about the Xbox. I have no problem with that, more power to you, but if you weren’t expecting to get a rise out of these people, then what is the point of it?
            Is that not the very definition of trolling?
            but you’re right, I don’t know you. All I see is what you show me….

  • Kiyoshi

    I wish I got into the game development industry. Imagine working on a super secret game that only you and a couple other people know about with the world going crazy to know what it is.

  • Delsin Row

    They’ve done a good job with uncharted. im hope they make another action adventure game for ps4

  • Russell Gorall

    By “based on” Unreal, I think you mean using Unreal engine?

    I hate when I click on articles like this thinking it’s news and it turns out to be pure speculation based off a job listing…..#boooooo

      Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.

      Flagged for spam, DS isn’t a marketing site.

      • Thats Mr. Smoove

        actually there was no advertising done here. cough, cough.

        • MTM2

          Well it’s your youtube channel and your video, you’re using this page to advertise your video to get extra views.

  • RSV1234

    So they (MS) forgot to prohibit GAIKAI to work with CLOUD COMPUTING!?

    • shinitaru

      That’s MS’ thing though, take something that lots of other people have been doing for a long time, for free, slap a patent on it then charge people for it

      • someguy

        Like Apple for example lol

      • Thats Mr. Smoove

        WOW, I’m guessing Sony never borrow ideas and sell it like its there own.
        Online Play
        Voice Chat
        Achievement System
        Reputation System
        Motion Control
        Virtual Reality

        Sony has came up with all of this, and everyone else followed the trend. True innovators

        • shinitaru

          Yeah, they do that occasionally, but we aren’t talking about Sony. Besides, Sony doesn’t try to act like they invented everything, they just give their customers what they asked for.

          That’s also the thing about you guys, every time someone say anything about MS, your reflex action is to say “Sony does it too”

        • Negi Springfield

          Yeah and Where do you think Microsoft got the idea of Kinect ?

          From SONY with their eye-toy.

          • Thats Mr. Smoove

            Kinect and eye toy did nothing a like. I didn’t know you can control the playstation 2 UI with the eye toy. Didn’t know the eye toy had voice control. I didn’t know eye toy tracked body movement, didn’t know eye-toy had a lot of motion control games with it. You’re right Microsoft stole the eye toy from sony. Microsoft just made it a bit more useful

          • shinitaru

            “Microsoft just made it a bit more useful”

            I would hope so, they only had wait 10 years for technology to surpass the original concept.

          • MTM2

            “Kinect and eye toy did nothing a like”

            They both register bodily comments to control the console, they’re incredibly similar – the specific applications are negligible.

  • TraceSkipper

    Bend has too much talent for just the psp/vita.

  • Thats Mr. Smoove

    Lmao proof, show me this proof. Was you able to count the frames per second? Games that have frame rate issues usually get noted in reviews even if the journalist hates or loves the game. And with my own eyes playing it and still owning it I didn’t notice poor framerate drops. With a game like Ryse that would be really noticeable. A game like DR3 it was completely evident

    • Thats Mr. Smoove

      This site is bs every time I reply to a comment it goes to the wrong article

      • Nick Hunt

        It’s not the site… Disqus is a separate widget that is injected into and used in hundreds of different websites. The error was not because of the widget or because of the site. It was purely user error from someone trolling many posts from different stories simultaneously. The error as well as your poor judgment and ignorance is all on you.

        • Thats Mr. Smoove

          Bite me

          • Nick Hunt

            Wow you managed to reply to the correct comment, good job. Did you need help? No thanks idiot trolls are distasteful and gross. Also…

          • Thats Mr. Smoove

            Doesn’t take much be a troll on this site. All u gotta do is say something positive about xbox and bam! You’re a troll.

          • Nick Hunt

            Using “u” instead of “you” doesn’t improve your already percieved lack of intelligence. That would be true if that’s all you’ve done. Hell there are great things about the Xb1 that real gamers recognize. You aren’t a real gamer tho. You are a sad troll that goes far beyond “saying something positive about xbox”. You lie, you bullshit, you go out of your way to goad and insult others. Your post history is proof of that. The reason you misposted in the first place is because you were trolling multiple posts at once.

          • Thats Mr. Smoove

            Wow there’s no quit in “u”. Sorry “4″ the lack of time and effort I spend responding. Maybe if I was on my PC my response would be more correct spelled words and proper grammar. You said I’m trolling yet it was “U” who took the time out to reply to my comment that didn’t concern you. Yet you call me stupid and uneducated because I didn’t want write complete sentences in the comment box. I don’t go out of my way, I insult those who insult me. I post comment then the hate replies then follow. If you feel that way why do you entertain anything I have to say?

          • Nick Hunt

            So you will take the time to write you’re but not you? Yeah ty for providing yet another example of BS and lies from you. I don’t call you stupid and uneducated just because you don’t type in full or correct sentences. I call you stupid and uneducated because you continue to lie and BS and expect people to fall for it despite the fact you are proven wrong every single time. You do go out of your way, your comment history is chop full of examples. Like your post with a video promoting a boycott of N4g. If hate messages follow you it’s because you intentionally troll for them. I don’t entertain anything you say. The only thing I’ve done is what everyone does and that is prove you wrong, make you look like a fool, and then enjoy the great deal of butthurt you exude after. .

          • Thats Mr. Smoove

            Nick, relax, I didn’t know I had this much power over you people. You keep saying i lie what the hell do I need to lie about. What did I lie about? I gave opinions, my 2cents, my impressions and what I thought. Just because ppl disagree with what I say doesn’t mean I’m a lie. I can share my vids where ever I please if that’s trolling than cool. Butt-hurt I love that term. Watching u guys get angry in the comments doesn’t hurt me at all, I just show my friends how funny it is to piss y’all off. Like now. You’re obviously taking more time than me, did you say you have a history of my comments? That’s a bit scary? Are making an archive? This is the internet, what’s said on this fanboy site has no impact on my daily life so I could never feel like a fool. I’m actually comfortable being wrong in fanboy sites like this than what I am in a classroom full of people. You said i try to get ppl to fall for things, like what? I share vids for views and subs. If ppl bash it, it’s whatever I’m not offended. It’s the internet. Ha. But you might want to monitor your emotional input I can see this stressing you a little.

          • Nick Hunt

            That’s just the point..you have no power lol. You are a try hard fanboy fail troll. You have no legitimate opinions, all you have is butthurt feelings and anger towards Sony so you spend all your free time trolling game related stories bashing them. It didn’t take any time to see you post several times in a single article trolling. You’ve earned yourself quite the reputation. Saying I’m stressed while laughing at you being butthurt and enjoying you squirm while you fail in trying to deny the fact that you are a fanboy troll doesn’t mean I’m stressed. It just means you are grasping at straws and that you have once again failed hard

          • Thats Mr. Smoove

            OMG lol. ok u got me. Why R u Ponies under the impression that I dislike Playstation. I have no reason whatsoever to dislike the playstation. I “troll” (thats what u call it) playstation feeds because the reaction is priceless. If you notice my comment history you would see that i don’t ever attack the playstation. I’m usually just defending the Xbox. Whats up with this Butt-hurt term did you guys find that on YouPorn? Reading through your well thought out perception of me and gaming preference makes you seem heavily invested in what I have to say. Because if you didn’t care if i was too stupid. this convo would have ended long ago better yet you would have just ignored me. But you didn’t, you just got more angry with every response. I might be a “Failed Troll” but you are the fool for letting me troll you. I don’t get you ppl. Once again its not Playstation that I dislike, Not Sony, Its you sensitive , over invested, my way or the highway fanboys.

          • Nick Hunt

            More lies and BS from the fanboy troll poser gamer. Please watch the video to get a complete debunking of all the BS you just spouted and why no one cares..

            Also you should really try to un-rustle them jimmies..

            “I “troll” (thats what u call it) playstation feeds because the reaction is priceless. ”

            So you’re admitting you’re trolling these webpages? Enjoy the imminent ban-hammer.

    • such.wow

      Was this to me? Anyway “Originally touted as a solid 30fps experience, Ryse misses the mark more often than we’d like with frame-rates often fluctuating between 26-28fps and the most challenging situations even seeing the frame-rate
      drop into the teens.”
