This is madness: Hands-on with Yoostar 2

4:20 PM on 01.27.2011 // Neranjan 'Venom' Bissoon

Recently Jon Carnage and I had the chance to check out Yoostar 2, a wild game that will put you into movies using Kinect for 360 and the PlayStation Eye for PlayStation 3. 

Yoostar 2 uses the sensors of the Kinect and Playstation Eye to create a virtual green screen; movements are then captured digitally inserted into scenes from blockbuster movies, or scene templates for a type of free-style mode.

I was impressed by the advanced tech behind Yoostar 2, needing only the game and the Kinect or Eye, as opposed to the bulky setup required by the first title. The game also features a strong online component, as players can upload scenes to YouTube and get feed back via Twitter and Facebook.

Check out the interview done by Jon Carnage for some hands-on impressions and to see it in action.
