It just seems odd that Sony is making a whole new camera for PS5 that seemly is mostly in the lien up because they think people will stream form their consoles.
I know people do stream on PlayStation, but I never really considered that Sony felt they were making a "big enough dent" in steaming that they needed to make a special peripheral camera to supports that. Yet, I guess they must feel their customers are utilizing streaming to be spending resources to make a NEW camera that integrates with that "Create Button" on the PS DuelSense controller.
I wonder what sort of numbers Sony is seeming from streamers. I will admits I only dip into watching the streaming on PlayStation a bit. Nevertheless, when I am interested in a game "I do" watch streaming of people playing that game! So, maybe, it is working for them and for the streamers. I know that statistics say that most streamers often stream to zero audience; yet, they keep doing it - they just like doing it. In a way Sony improving the accessibility and giving streamers an inexpensive tool ($60) like the PlayStation 5 - HD Camera is useful in a few way. A $60 HD camera that does 1080p and look nice sitting on your TV cannot be all bad...maybe YouTube, Zoom, and other video services will make improved app so you can use your PS5 for things like Zoom calls.
