According to this DarkZero piece, Sony rep Sandy Spangler said at the Edinburgh Festival yesterday that EyeToy Hero – the EyeToy-based sword game shown at PlayStation Day earlier this year – will have 1:1 motion tracking and will release before Christmas. From the piece.

As the game can track where the sword is at all times, this allows for more complex gameplay. The first thing to note is that EyeToy Play: Hero is played from a first-person perspective, so the player’s image is not displayed onscreen like most other EyeToy games. What is seen onscreen is a glowing green representation of the sword that the player holds, and as the game is camera-based it follows the player’s movements to an exact 1:1 ratio.
