There's a feature in Golden Abyss that allows you to fine-tune your aim using the PS Vita's gyro sensor. See this video for more information, including gameplay footage:



I wasn't expecting to say this, but Intu-aim looks useful. Too often has my reticule been slightly off — enough to screw up a headshot — because my analogue stick has gotten stuck. Pushing the stick, even slightly, in these situations often moves the reticule further than intended, so you end up missing either way. On other occasions, the stick is just too sensitive to make a desired adjustment. If it's configured so as to be unobtrusive, I think this could be a simple, natural way to make minor corrections.

So, is this something that you anticipate using?

Ehhhh, i like playing in one position so i doubt i'll use this, maybe like you said to get really accurate aiming, but that would require it to not become a hassle when i'm playing normally. If it does, i'll turn it off. If not i have no problem with it being on.

Agent Mo: I'm not sure how it works, but it's probably safe to assume that it won't be a nuisance. Most people don't sit frozen still when playing their games, and surely they realize that.

I was thinking that it could only work when you hold down a specific button. I can't tell from the video.

Sorry, I'm unfamiliar with Uncharted.

Well that's alright, so long as it's not going to alter the camera while you're just walking around. Often when I go to aim and shoot, I'm not wiggling around because I'm focused.

I honestly think this looks like one of the most useless things I've ever seen. Very thankful that you don't actually have to use it.

No i just meant, presumably the button to trigger it would be the aim button, rather than having to aim AND press another button to trigger intu-aim. That would be fiddly. But yeah i don't think they'd have it in use while just walking around, especially since they use the motion thing for stuff like swinging.

But anyways, why 'intu'-aim? Am i missing something here or is it just a completely randomly made up name?

Now I get you. Yeah, that'd be best.

As for the name, I suspect that it's a combination of "intuitive" and "aim." Thus, Intu-aim. It's not the best of names.
