    "Guns" as PS4 input units?

    As you probably know, there are some input units for ps3 looking like guns, that use "ps move" controllers to play shooter games. This way, you "aim" at the targets on screen by yourself.

    Are there any rumors (or is anything confirmed?) about controllers like that for PS4?

    (I know the new camera system catches the signals from the common ps4 controller, but I don't think these can be used for actual aiming in a shooter game...?!)

    Have we actually seen any move controller at all for the PS4 and have we got confirmed games that will use it?

    Haven't yet but I'm sure they are working on something new.

    I'm patiently waiting on 3d to be announced.

    Or a decent VR experience this Gen.

    No we haven't yet and even though I like the idea of bringing them to the ps4, its just another thing for the media to rag fps players on. sob's

    Actually Sony (Cerney and Trenton both stated this in different interviews) has stated that the Move controllers will be used with the new camera for motion control. So I don't see why we wouldn't have support for existing guns. I'd expect them to simply remap Select and Start to Share and Options.

    I'll see if I can find them. They were interviews during E3 within a day or so of Sony's press conference.

    I found this one from back in the Feb Annoucement timeframe where Shuhei Yoshida mentioned it. I found several more from this time frame.

    I don't see why not. It's just another sensor/feedback mechanism. If they think they can either perfect it more or make it less expensive, then they'll do it. I'm certain we'll see Madcatz, Nyko, etc will put controllers out.

    The main sensor for a gun is the camera, so that is the PSeye, or whatever the new one is, PS4eye. The light bar on the front of the DS4 controller provides some level of Move capability, possibly superior. The PS4eye is stereoscopic so it has 3D machine vision of the player including much more than just gesture and facial recognition. Combining improved performance of the controller with the option to activate those features requiring an add-on peripheral was a smart move by Sony. The controller has Move capability built-in standard so that isn't an extra price added to the base buy-in price. It would probably be too bulky for strapping on to a gun housing, so it remains to be seen if there is going to be more coverage of the Move capabilities with the PS4eye, possibly a split-apart controller.
