Microsoft Kinect 2.0 Vs Sony Playstation 4 Eye Spec Comparison

kinectspecs

Yesterday, Sony revealed details about their next generation gaming console Playstation 4 at a press event. They detailed the system specs, new controller specs and the new Playstation 4 Eye specs. VGLeaks posted a information about upcoming Kinect 2.0 sensor spec from Microsoft. I just made a quick comparison of PS4 Eye and leaked Kinect 2.0 specs which you can see above. According to me, Kinect 2.0 specs looks better on paper in terms of resolution whereas Eye sensor is better in terms of Field Of View.

What do you think of these specs?

    I think I don’t care about specs; I want to see what works better and what gives me more fun. Also its important to see HOW they get integrated into games and if the game selection actually uses it….

    with that said, we still have no idea what Kinect 2 is or isn’t so I’m not sure why one would discuss specs when you don’t know half of the story for sure.

    It is rumored Kinect 2 will be built in Next Xbox while PS4 eye will be an accessory
    So integration of Kinect 2 will be much better in games
    Kinect 2 has as IR sensor which measures your 3D depth and doesn’t need light bulbs to calculate the depth , nothing like that present in PS4 eye

      I hope not. An integrated sensor will not work for everyone. It won’t work for me. My console is ankle level (I have a very clean living room) and the sensor is chest level right above the TV. Besides, the chart above says USB3.

        I’m guessing the internal parts of the kinect will be built into the console, but you will still have a (smaller than the current one) camera/sensor that you can place accordingly. Otherwise they will be forcing you to put your console in a certain position, which would suck balls!

        It’s been confirmed. If the Kinect isn’t plugged in the Xbox One won’t even work. XD

    PS user experience sucks anyway and Kinect can only get better, so I really don’t think it will make a difference for PS.

    I repeatedly wish Kinect 2.0 had a compound Eye vision like (i dont know) some insects out there which capture multiple image frames and process it. i guess, stereo eyes is not much NEXT-GEN thing to me

    atleast satellite eyes [like those satellite speakers] would be much fun to have 3D surround VR gaming experience

      It’s the processing and game integration that becomes difficult.

    Yeah, let’s compare specs! Half of PS4 Eye’s specs are unknown! WHO CARES.

    Honestly, I love Microsoft, but this is some really sorry stuff you’re pulling out here.

    I think the kinect will be better than the Sony camera. The kinect will be much more integrated into the console since everyone will own one. The Sony is an accessory so many will find it useless and not buy it. The camera will be like the current kinect and will never be used. While the kinect 2 will be a main part of the Xbox experience. It sounds to me like the kinect actually tracks motion, while the Sony camera is just watches the controller. I am not sure how the camera will work in-game other than having you just shake the controller. The kinect give the player a much better experience than the Sony camera.
