Burnout 5 to employ Vision Camera
There hasn't been a great deal of information surrounding the next installment of the Burnout series, so far referred to only as Burnout 5. As such, we feel it our responsibility to inform our readers of even the tiniest bit of Burnout related news. Today's bit of news is actually fairly exciting, as it seems that the Vision Camera will be used in the game. So far we don't know how it will be implemented, but it will definitely be featured in the game. Speaking about Burnout 5 to CVG, Criterion's director of design, Alex Ward, said, "How you use the controller is key, how you play the game online, how you use the HD Eye Toy and the 360 Vision Camera online is really important."
What uses could the camera have? Face capturing for the drivers perhaps? Could it be used for taunting, as in Command & Conquer 3? Anyone have any ideas?

uhh... lame... put the vision camera in a game that doesnt need one... when other games could use it perfectly

forgot to put an example... like TMNT 89 Arcade could of had the visioncam in the bottom or on the sides instead of that stupid picture back there... then you would know who is who and see their reactions when they play a game.

I'm going strongly for them using it on the cars. You know. They put up a box and you fill that box with some sort of pattern you want on your car, then boom. Custom car pattern.

Why couldn't that example be used for this game?

only problem with seeing who your playing on burnout would be that you would have to see the whiny little American kid as well as hearing him

I take offense to the American aspect of that comment. I've heard plenty of whiny English kids on Xbox Live, and I won't even start on the Whiny French kids.

yeah theres whiny English kids but the the sound of an unbroken American voice could shatter ear drums.

Umm...I do take offense to that American comment. But I usually dont talk while im online unless im talking about stratagy or to a friend.

jimhuf, let me tell you how to stop those whiny Americans. When one starts up, just get up close to the vision camera, and smile. After the child stops screaming at the nightmare of third world quality British dentistry, he/she will be too traumatized to continue with their whining.

I think we can safely say that 80 percent of the gamers on LIVE are whiny regardless of where they live. ;)

question for those who are more technically savy than myself.
I was thinking about the wii-mote... and then the vision camera... do you think if maybe... you used a special glove, or a color... or something... you could use the vision camera to track your movement as part of the primary complex interface? similar to how the wii mote functions (though the technology would be totally different).

Pfft. America doesn't lay claim to those brats! Just as im sure Europe doesn't want to be associated with those whiny little kids (and when they talk, it sounds worse than the american ones). ...wish more games had a Vote-to-kick feature...

You've got to love the American sense of humour, or the lack of it

Third world dentistry? That's so 1980s... We all have a check-up every 6 months now, and a lot of people have private dental cover.
Just saying, you know? ;o)
Oh, and whiny kids are all annoying, no matter where they're from. I can't wait to have a big picture of my balls splattered across the side of my car!
