PS Eye to open on PAL territories

PAL gamers will be able to snap up the PlayStation 3 camera in their regions from November 7.

The successor to the Eye Toy camera, the PlayStation Eye, will soon be available to buy in Europe, Australia, and other PAL territories.

It will come bundled with a free copy of EyeCreate Software on Blu-ray, and will set gamers back £24.99. EyeCreate will allow users to edit and share photos, videos, and audio clips through their consoles.

The camera will be compatible with Sony game The Eye of Judgment, and PlayStation Store titles Operation Create Feature, The Trials of Topoq, and Aqua Vita.

In Aqua Vita, gamers explore an intricately rendered undersea world, whereas Eye of Judgment is a card-battle game. Other upcoming titles with PlayStation Eye functionality include Eyedentify, Ember, and Snakeball.

Rick, I think it's because of the different tax rules here. They need to earn profit, and with VAT and stuff, they have to up the price. Eye Toy looks cool. Might get it. :)

I usually accept the fact that us European gamers (UK to be specific for me) are totally being ripped off for pricing of gaming hardware and software. For example taking a general game for the PS3 costs $60 in the US whilst here in the UK they sell for £40-£45 ($80-$90). However in this case where the PS Eye is bundled with the Eye of Judgement is seriously taking the p*ss. In the US they are selling it for just $70 whilst here, in the UK, they're selling it for a whopping £60...yes!...$120!!! I mean honestly, what have we European gamers done wrong to deserve this? This absolutely sucks even though I still wanna get it.

yeah there is actually a dated confirmation on the eye for US. mainly because of the EoJ but there is at least half dozen more games that i found which will utilize the eye fully, so skipping out on NA market would make no sense.

eye of judgement looks great, and if the other playstation eye games are as good, i'll pick them up as well.

Don't worry guys! The PlayStation Eye will be available in USA and Canada on November, 25th 2007! I got the news from GameStop.com, and of course you all know that it would be stupid that the whole world exept for North America would get it without us!

I can see this is gonna be BIG - i already have visions of detailed face-mapping on fps titles and such. Its going to sell loads just for that feature alone!

Eye of Judgment looks dope. And I'm not even into card battle games. It's just too awesome a concept to avoid. Real physical cards in your hand that get seamlessly scanned into the game as you play and lay them down, then big gnarly HD monsters manifesting on screen to duke it out. In the next generation, perhaps we'll have holograms projecting out directly from the table or the cards themselves. In the year 2000...

If hope they bring out alot of useful features and just not a loud of cheesy games.

@Coldfire: They already have an option for live chat via camera. Isn't that nice?

I hope it will have the 360 feature where you can create yourself in some games. That was cool :)

The eyetoy this gen will be a lot more useful than the ps2's one imo. The amount of stuff you will be able to do with it is vastly superior to what you could do last gen. I think this will be quite popular.

i can see this being a great product. Especially if they add live web cam chat to their online service. That would be just another reason for me to wish i had the money to get a console...

Great price. I am hoping Eye of Judgment is as cool as it looks.

Not too much of a bad price. I think I might pick this up, provided Sony pushes its hardware (knowing Sony) unlike the Eyetoy. What I would love is if they licensed the technology to let 3rd party hardware developers make an HD PS3 camera. Now THAT would be worth every penny, plus a major advantage over the XBL Vision.

Wow, I honestly thought they'd charge a full game price on this.
