Gametrak is a revolutionary 3D motion sensing controller which gives users precise and intuitive control in 3D space - unlike camera technologies, Gametrak allows movement forwards and backwards as well as up, down, left and right, and does all this without any time delay or processor overhead. Instead of a complex and intimidating series of buttons and joysticks; fighting games enable users to physically punch opponents using boxing gloves; sports games will users to pick up and play using real golf clubs or tennis rackets; adventure games will become totally immersive as users are able to manipulate 'virtual' onscreen objects with their hands.
The first Gametrak title, Dark Wind, launched on PS2 in October 2004, winning awards such as Leipzig Games Convention's 'Best Of Show'. Real World Golf represents a milestone in sports gaming, freeing users from the confusion of joysticks and buttons, and allowing them to play a real game of golf. Future Gametrak titles include basketball, bowling, party games, shooting, skiing, tennis, basketball, football, action and adventure titles, for current and future games formats.
