Sony Computer Entertainment America has today announced that the PS2-exclusive EyeToy: Play has shipped to stores in North America. Developed by SCEE's London Studio, EyeToy: Play has already sold over a million copies in Europe since its release in July.
"EyeToy: Play will change the face of traditional gaming as we know it because of its universal appeal and innovative technology. It's easy and fun, so anyone and everyone will be able to pick it up and play," said Ami Blaire, director of product marketing, Sony Computer Entertainment America. "Based on its European success and the buzz already received in the US, we expect EyeToy to be one of this holiday's must-have products."
EyeToy: Play is a collection of 12 minigames that are played by moving in front of a specially designed USB camera placed on top of the television. The games included with the camera see players beating up ninjas, boxing with a robot, dancing, washing windows, playing "keep up" with a soccer ball, and even detonating fireworks. Players also have the option to play around with different visual effects and can leave video messages for one another.
