My older son has been drawing a lot lately, and getting more sophisticated as he works at it. I would really love to be able to draw some characters with him and put them into a game we could play together. Heck, how about just letting him use a prefabricated character to play in levels that he creates and scans into the PS3?
Mostly Sony has let the whole Game 3.0 concept wither away, but if this is what they plan to do with it, count me in.

How many years does it take you to develop a good game.
Sony seems to be getting better about getting good ideas they develop out there. The people behind the original Eye Toy had great ideas and fantastic tech demos 5 years ago, but Sony sat on it.
I think with Wii and DS out doing well they demonstrates that the technology Sony has in-house can be used for profitable ventures.
The tech we saw in those videos is EXACTLY the sort of thing Sony could put out for a tiny cost yet would be downloaded by everyone with a new PS Eye. Moreover, people who just saw that tech demo on the Sony Blog said to me they now want a PS Eye. Seeing a tiny tech demo for $3 could easily sell thousands (tens of thousands) of PS Eyes.
The biggest problem I see is someone owns tank battle and those other games. The good news it is Atari that owns them and Atari is on the skids and can be picked up cheap this month! The technology shown in the demo could easy be used for ALL of Atari 2600 Stella games. And having those 200 early Atari games would be what could turn that tech demo into something you could make some real money on selling in packs. I’m not saying copy those original games, I’m saying own them so that any derivative works you base upon them and upgrade are yours in a very real and legally binding way.
