A Microsoft patent in the US has revealed that the company is about to make a highly immersive and intensive game-play option for Xbox users. According to this latest Microsoft project, the game will be played as a projected moving imagery in the environment of the room. Meaning…you will be in the middle of a football game with Manchester United and play game with more life. Not understanding this happy bit of news?! Take a look at the picture below to grasp the concept you once dreamed of in your childhood. (To go into that amazing Sims or NFL game and live in it).
The graphics will extend beyond the TV boundaries. On the other hand, Sony is also playing up to the opportunity and claiming the introduction of a different type of immersive game-play with a visual headset…where your brain can get lost into the gaming world. Not bad!!! Both will release further details very soon.
Microsoft and Xbox companies have jointly stated that a unique TV set will be made that will scan the layout and size of the ‘real’ room and then project the games’ 3D surroundings onto the walls and floor of the room, extending entertainment into the realms of brain not possible before.
WOW!!!! I can’t wait to play SIMS on that damn gaming device :S and neither can you!! Guess, its time to throw away all your old Xbox games or just lock ‘em off in the closet. ‘Cuz you will be buying very unique gaming CDs now.
