    I'm not sure I like the idea of this. Do I really want a console adding 'extras' to my viewing experience? As for controlling what you watch by detecting eye movement from multiple users, that could be interesting, changing channels or pausing because of blinking too many times?! Saw a friend's camera at the weekend that detected blinks and prevented you taking a picture when it saw this. Needless to say we (well, Halo actually ;) ) had fun with this feature and no group photos were taken... :lol:

    Interesting stuff that shows what Microsoft truly excel at, some good innovation there.

    I'm not sure I like the idea of it pausing if you look away, but i'm sure that's more of a showcase/concept than something that would actually be implemented and certainly wouldn't be forced implementation.

    To me it looks like Sony is playing it safe, going for the "stock" interfaces of controller with motions controls and a dual camera system, PC is as ever going to be pure performance with no innovation and Microsoft look to be going fully into the innovation route...which may not pay off all that well for them, but on the other hand look at how well the Wii did with casual gamers (i.e. console sales, not games sales) just because of a badly implemented motion detection system!
