-Bad picture quality.
-Super rarely used in games and 3d function even less used. (Only playroom and Just Dance afaik)
-Playroom is riddiculous and pathetic. Functions as a 90's gimmicky electronic device selling point.
-Voice commands are only there to justify including a mic in it. You can not do anything other than ten or so home menu actions. Once you are in a sub menu like settings or whatever there are no commands to navigate or select. At that point you need to use controller. Then why bother in the first place?
-You can include your head in a box while live streaming.
-Playststion VR will use it. If you are going to buy VR there is a chance that you might get a bundle without this and save some momey.
I purchased it with the hope of atually being able to use it in mic chat with friends, as it was possible in the PS3 with the PS Eye. However, I am very disappointed. I don't even use the facial recognition to log into my PS4 anymore as it was much more time consuming and less direct.
I would return this item, however I cant be arsed to do so due to the hassle it will be, since I currently live in Brazil.
If Sony adds the camera feature to the voice chats, it would be appreciated. But until that happens, I will continue using the less practical skype on my phone or laptop, consuming double the amount of energy.
If Sony fixes that, and adds the camera feature to voice chat, I will change my rating to 4*.
My only main complaint is the damn shiny plastic. You would think they just wouldn't use this dogcrap material anymore. I know piano black is nice but you really need better plastic that doesn't scratch to hell if you want to use this on consumer devices. It has gotten better in the industry but for whatever reason they still use this garbage like they are doing a favor to anyone.
STOP using shiny, black plastic on consumer devices! Or at least improve it. This is not the worst kind that scratches from the dust in the air lol, but I'd rather be able to hand my devices without constant fingerprints or fear of having to clean such a device. I barely touch this camera for this reason.
All in all the resolution and capabilities are far beyond the first PS Camera but it's hard for anyone to know when you basically have zero software to use this with in the way of Sports Champions or some other game capable of making true love with the camera. For now this thing is totally pointless unless you need a desktop mic like me.
When Sports Champions 3 comes out, will it ever?, then this thing will be a nice product to have. For now Sony has totally abandoned the Move and Camera as they get other things up to speed.
As for the other part about using a real headset... if you link the ps4 wired headset it will take over voice input. Then all you gotta do is hit the mute button on the headset to stop broadcasting. This is another fix but another inconvenient one. My point is that its kind of a waste to have it yet have to apply a bandaid (real headset) or unplug it to achieve what should be a simple desired result.
Final point i got is that facial recognition does want you to sit a good 3 feet or more from the camera. Kinda sucks if you do most your gaming at a desk such as me. You find yourself leaning way back in you chair when ever its looking for you.
