    Get used to it.

    Some of us are still mad at Microsoft for stealing point and click from Apple.

    These things happen in engineering all the time.

    Unless you have stock in Nintendo why would you get mad? Well, unless you don't want to see PS3 games pointlessly flooded with Nintendo's gimmick, but seeing the eyetoy there gives me hope that Sony realizes all this motion nonsense should be attached to optional peripherals the non-games specifically made for them.

    I for one am not interested in more motion gaming. I'll stick with a regular control pad, thank you very much.

    Who's going around telling developers that I want to do backflips and stand on my head while I'm playing a game?

    All the people speaking with their wallets buying Wiis I'd imagine.

    If lots of people buy it, a lot of companies will copy it.

    More people are buying PS2s and 360s than Wii's.

    Again, since this is connected to the eyetoy I hope Sony realizes the proper place of this sort of gimmick, and it's not as a forced part of every game.

    Watch the Sony fanboys jump all over this when, just last month, they were calling it a childish gimmick.

    How are they stealing anything? Did you even read that article? They have a patent on the motion controller thing only with a different feature added to it.

    If you call that stealing then better call chevy, porsche, hummer and everyone else because they stole fords original plan for a car. Or maybe creator of vectrex should sue sony because they stole their idea for a game console.

    This is just the whole "its fashionable to bash sony", not much different than while before everyone praised bush now its fashionable to take pot shots at him. People just want a excuse to complain is all it really boils down.

    And honestly who cares? I hate to break to anyone who claims to be a gamer but its stupid to love or hate a console manufacturer, if you do then your not a real gamer. Games make the system, not the other way around. If the games arent any good then your system is a expensive paperweight. I mean no one will ever be able to convince me xbox is better than a nes, sure its more powerfull and blah blah blah but it doesnt have 1/100th the even decent games the nes had.

    Stop looking for excuses to bad mouth console manufacturers, if you dont like it then dont buy it. Your wasted energy could be better spent ranting and being pissed about bad games. Because those are what make or break a system, not the other way around.

    I didn't read the part of the article that said the next Eyetoy will be mandatory and cost $200.

    I didn't say it had to be the most popular, just popular.

    Companies copy other companies, that's just the way it is.
