5.0 out of 5 stars Unique fun! October 30, 2007
By Chris
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I purchased the Eye Camera seperate from the Eye of Judgement game becasue I really don't play card games. The reason I purchased the camera was so that I could use it with my 5 yr. old who has recently taken an interest in animation. With the free download available on the PSN, you are able to leverage this clever device to do all sorts of fun and unique things. But first, I'll address the camera from a hardware perspective:

It's well built, and sturdy looking. The camera pivots from left to right on it's base, but cannot be adjusted to look up or down. The camera auto-focuses, and seems to do a nice job of it. The lens does twist to provide a "zoom" view of the subject as well. Perhaps the thing I was most impressed with is the sound quality it is able to capture. I recorded a few demo videos to test the functionality, and found that you can easily sit 10 feet from the camera and talk in very normal tones and the camera picks it all up beautifully. The sound is rich and full. I have not had the chance to video chat with it yet, but from what I have seen, it will be nice and easy. The 360 offers a similar product, but the image quality and frame rates are not quite as good, and you are required to wear a headset to transmit voice and pick up sound. Overall, I am pleased with it from a hardware aspect, with he only real downsides being the fact that you cannot pivot the lens up or down.

No software comes with the camera. Instead, you must grab it from the Playstation Store on the PSN. It is a free download, and takes up very little space. The software itself is easy, but does have a small learning curve due to the fact that it does not come with much in the way of detailed instructions.

5.0 out of 5 stars The EYES Have It November 24, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I can't get the name Eye Toy out of my head. The familiar camera for the PS2 now has a very new and classy look on the PS3. Say hello to the mature Playstation Eye. If you had a Playstation Eye for the Playstation 2 you are probably aware of the interactivity that was available. Now with the newest edition Eye that is taken up one level to a whole new dimension.

Getting my hands on this has been a few weeks in coming. Deciding on whether I wanted to purchase it with a game is what kept me. In reality I didn't need a card game so I purchased this for the measely sum of $40 and now I have this beautiful contraption. Once you open the package there is not much to it. Connect the 6 foot usb cord to the PS3 and go to device settings and make sure your PS3 is aware it has a camera. No installation here which makes life that much easier.

If you have access to the Playstation Network you can download the Eye Create software for free. A rather small and unassuming file packed with punch. I really didn't expect much from a free program but I was in for a big surprise. The program is actually an editing program and a very simple but very good one at that. The program allows for capturing video, sound, and pics. You can then edit your masterpiece to create a decent home movie. I am still unaware as to whether I can upload the videos onto Youtube or mail them to others on my friend list. This is a great little bonus program to owning the Eye.

As of now there are a couple mini games available at a low price on the PSN. And of course they are interactive with the Eye. The first game is actually an aquarium. I don't know as much for a game as an interactive screen saver that would be nice when your entertaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mine pivots up and down December 12, 2007
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Well, I don't know about anyone else, but when I purchased this product I was under the assumption this camera only moved from left to right. Well, mine moves up and down as well. The camera overall is very nice. I think the video and audio it records is very nice. Looking forward to see how cool this will be when home comes out. I'm sure there will be something we can do with it. I'm very happy with this purchase and can't wait to see what games will do with it. I purchased this from amazon and just want to clear this up for everyone, this camera moves up, down, left and right.

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't expect a miracle February 20, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The PS3 Eye is a good addition if you play lots of online games and don't have a lot of other noise in the house. The camera function is good and I imagine there will be more uses for it in the future as PS3 online expands. That having been said- don't expect any miracles of quality. It is at best a very mediocre web cam. Highly sensitive to lighting conditions, poor resolution, poor picture/contrast. The microphone seems to be pretty good though. I would buy it again, but make sure your expectations are in line with what you'll be getting if you choose to buy it.

3.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT ORDER from WORLDWIDE DISTRIBUTORS!!!!! January 25, 2011
By butcher
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
First off let me say that the PSeye is great,but when I got the product it was not in it's original packaging and when I called Worldwide Distibutors they assured me that the the item was new and that the ps eye never comes with instructions Which is obviously a LIE!!!!!!! I had to call Playstation customer service and asked them to email me the instructions they also said that their items always come in official Playstation packaging no matter who they sell to.By buying this from Worldwide Distributors I did not get original packaging, instructions,and the manufacturers warranty which is typically 1 year which gives me peace of mine for 1 year.My advice to you is to make sure it's shipped and sold by amazon if not get it from the store for around 3-4 dollars more u get the warranty, instructions and packaging which is a must for gifting. BTW this is my first order that wasnt satisfactory from amazon, my first among hundreds so amazon is still a great place to shop online, but please write reviews about your experiences good or bad as people like me never buy an item until we read the reviews, Thank You.
