Second-generation camera for Sony's console available unbundled from Eye of Judgment for $39.99.
Sony announced today that in addition to being available with the interactive card game The Eye of Judgment, the PlayStation Eye will be offered as a stand-alone product for $39.99 on October 23. Alternatively, the camera can be bought bundled with the game beginning the same day for $69.99.
For those not merely content in knowing it works, Sony also laid out some of the camera's nitty-gritty technical specifications. The PS Eye has a normal and wide-angle zoom lens that includes fixed focusing. It can maintain 60 frames per second display at 640x480 resolution and has a built-in microphone. A complete tech-spec rundown can be found on the official PlayStation Blog.
Sony will also be offering the EyeCreate Software as a free download through the PlayStation Network. With the software, PS Eye users can edit and share videos, photos, and audio clips through their console. Sony promises more info on the EyeCreate Software later this week.
"It's not until you see The Eye of Judgement in action that you begin to realise its revolutionary potential. Sure, it's essentially just another a card game at heart, but complete with a package of peripherals including the new Sony Eye camera, The Eye of Judgement could turn the genre on its head." This is why PS3 is going to be a winner in the long run, 2 word : REVOLUTIONARY POTENTIAL, eat it 259.
cool. be picking up the Eye by itself, maybe get the game if it plays good. just have to wait for the reviews to come out.
wow - i just cant wait to see other ps3 players through the webcam! i can see it now - fat overweight kids with blubber hanging from the side. perhaps we should trade in this camera for a wii fit? TAKE THAT! i am back!
Oh yeah and don't forget the Halo edition 360 with a 43% failure rate. BTW this camera looks pretty cool, but not really interested in EOJ. Hopefully they make more game interact with the PS Eye and I might invest $39.99 for it.
"you should move out of your moms house before investing in another nex gen flop of a console." This is probably coming from someone who is on his 3rd 360. 360 fanboys are just jealous that we have the most durable near perfect piece on machinery called the PS3. PS3 1.2% failure rate > 360 35% failure rate
"Hal?" LMAO Also, hopefully there will be a game where you can use both the camera capturing in conjunction with the controller's motion sensing. I can't think of anything myself, but maybe a cool party game? You could use the SIXAXIS (or Dual Shock 3, at that) as a volleyball or something! A lot of great possibilities, IMO.
Hey, YOURDADDY88,why wouldn't the software be free to download on PSN? it should come with the software whether in disc form or download. it wouldn't make sense for Sony to sell the disc or download. any tech gadget you buy these days always comes with a software to run it.
MUST GET EYE OF JUDGEMENT!! Dang, that's like two weeks away. I thought for sure this one would get pushed to March or some crap. I am so going to geek out with this game. It's going to be disgusting.
I hope they get smart and actually market the camera this time, . Idiots messed up on the eye-toy inthe PS2 generation, which could have been huge in interactivity.......but then when was the last time that Sony actually made smart moves.....way the hell back in PS2 generation, and walkmans...
@ "slavedheart" Uhhh, Sony ALREADY made a camera peripheral before... So has Nintendo (on their Gameboy) and the Dreamcast. It'll be an okay success at best, but it's not even going to put a dent in the Wii's success.
"keep your ?eye? out (sorry, I couldn?t resist) for some upcoming games that integrate the Eye in really innovative ways." it's an ugly device that i'm going to buy anyway. I understand why it looks that way but that's just my honest opinion. Either way what i like is that they are integrating it into actual gameplay and not just for a video feed, like the Live Vision camera. I'm still waiting on a game that integrates the Live Vision into actual gameplay. Totemball is the only one available and that is s**t.
"man anything sony comes out with the haters always have something to say to lower there iq." Presumably why you can't use correct grammar? But I think the camera actually looks pretty good. And relatively cheap
Even with all the dissent, if this device receives enough development attention, it could crush the Wii... but it needs WAY better marketing. Just think about it before you start making fun of the idea... instead of waving around a wand, you just use your hands... cast fireball by pushing out both hands, swing your sword by waving your arm (or finger if you put it up close enough, so you don't get wii-lated injuries). You could use it as a motion motoring system, and with a simple server software, create instant video security system that emails you a picture of your area each time you get motion in it... and records it online so you can even use the pics as a tool to recover it in case it's stolen. Live V-Bloging (just up the contact list sony, and give us better ways to file... everything... on the system, like, a.. file... system... wait... too obvious ) Nuff ranting, this COULD rock, let's hope it does
Sounds interesting, whilst the eyetoy itself looks like the original upside down but that would be shallow to simply go on looks alone. Sony, just don't take the route of the original eyetoy. Eyetoy Play Eyetoy Play 2 Eyetoy Play 3 Eyetoy Kinetic. Predictable and boring line up of games. Oh and lets not forget. Harry Potter And The Prisoner of Askaban Mini Eyetoy Games! I hated so very much hitting those damn chocolate frogs. But wishi-Washi was a classic, so more of that would be fantastic.
i have been wondering when that would come out and naw i know $70 bucks ....................................................................................im good
just dont ignore this like you did the eyetoy sony. that things still sitting on my tv collecting dust. thank god it was only 10 bucks.
This could be used to make the ultimate motion sencing games, much like the wii but you won't have to hold a remote! Lets hope Sony realizes the potential of this product and doesn't throw it on the back burner
wow what will they think of next ? record tv ? pron tool ? Sony is just blowing people away left and right.
And at 320:280, you get 120 frames per secend according to the ps blog that gamespot got this from. Meh, I don't really need this. If only it was some crazy cool hd webcam, would I get it. For what it is, its not bad, but not for me or most people. You can probably use the original eyetoy anyways for chat.
