PS3 Eye no longer a ‘toy’

PS3 Eye

The new PS3 Eye for the PlayStation3 has been announced – and it would seem that Sony have actually listened to the complaints and suggestions regarding the original PlayStation2 EyeToy – and have made a vastly improved camera this time around. The new camera has four times the resolution of the original EyeToy, and has a maximum framerate of 120 fps (twice the EyeToy framerate) which will allow for ultra smooth video capture and game control – you can even record and edit your own movies using the bundled EyeCreate editing software. The lens on the new PS3 Eye has an adjustable zoom lens so you can zoom in for video chat, and a wide 75 degree field of view for playing games – there’s also a new low-light mode which is twice as sensitive as the old EyeToy. The Eye uses a USB cable too – so hopefully we can find a way to get it working as a PC webcam just like the EyeToy.

    I hope you guys get some drivers up for this cam. The quality isn’t bad on it and it saves me needing to buy another one :D
