Rated 10 out of 10 by cbay316 AWESOME: BUT NEED MORE COMPATABILITY
This is the most awesome webcam (if you wanna even call it that) ever made! The fact that you can use it for your headset and chat without even having anything connected to your ear is awesome. The camera is great, and the mic and speakers are great additions. I give this design a 10 out of 10, easy. Also, it matches the PS3 very well, i have mine on top of my High Def TV and it looks sweet. Having also owned an XBOX 360 and as a PC gamer, i would have to say PS3 owners owe it to themselves to own this camera, which is the best on the market within this price range. My only complaint would be that Sony is not backing this product as much as they should be as far as compatiblity goes.... so far, i have really only used it with little big planet, burnout paradise, and to chat with others. I think it would be sweet if you could put yourself in some games (maybe your own face in fight night or rainbow six...). Great camera, but we PS3 owners need more games supporting such a sweet accesory.
Rated 10 out of 10 by leo305 PS EYE=Most innovative peace of tech
I bought this cam last year, but I have to say, its more innovative than anything you have ever experienced in your life. I would go far enough to say its more innovative than the Wii mote. For this price its a steal. There are lot of games you can play, but before I get to the gaming aspect of the device lets talk about its feature. Its an HD cam running at 60fps in full 1080p HD, works as a cam to just video chat with friends on the playstation network, and it also has a bulit in Microphone. The technology is so advanced that you are literally in the game moving things with your hand. Its just too amazing to explain in clear words. Now to the games, this cam currently has over 10 games available of the playstation network. Eye create, Operation Creature Feature, and Trials of Topoq are just 3 of the incredibly innovative games of the PS EYE exclusive to the Playstation 3. Trust me, I recommend this product to anyone.
Rated 10 out of 10 by taijutsu363 PS EYE AWESOME!
I first noticed the PS EYE when I was looking on the ps3s accessories video on the playstation network I saw that it would look fun to use and be able to chat with actual people so I got for that reason only. Little did I know that it was going to make it be way better than a headset or bluetooth, because it has a built in mic in it that works beautifully the range you get when you speak in it is great! And here's the kicker you dont need to charge it at all, that right there just killed me! The eyecreate that comes with it is totally awesome when you want to make like an amateur video or if you want to take a quick pic of yourself. If you ever played/have Burnout Paradise or even LBP you should already know you can take a license pic- BP or just take a pic and put on ur pod-LBP. ALL IN ALL THIS IS A MUST MUST BUY!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Nick C great all around accessory
I love this PS3 eye camera/mic. Like others have said I love that I bought it for the mic because you don't have to attach it too your ear to talk in it. While you concentrate on the game your friends can talk in the mic also. The camera is good to. The Software is called Eye Create that you download in the Playstation store. There are some pretty cool little games that you can buy for it or download the free software to make a movie with the camera. I mostly use it for its mic Capabilities. I use this mic for all the games that I play. After a while of using it the black paint has started to flake off the mic part of this accessory but that’s my only complaint. Great accessories to own do not need anything else. It does everything. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a mic or camera.
Rated 10 out of 10 by oddman85 Great for extended play, or for anyone.
This is an awesome accessory. It one counts as a camera for video and audio chat (which is free), although I don't even video chat much. It also works with a free software from Playstation Store that you can make videos and take pictures and edit them. I don't use that much either, what I REALLY use this for is for online gaming, yes, plug it in and it counts as a microphone. Great for if you want to use a microphone sitting on something instead of having an uncomfortable piece of plastic in your ear. The only minus (for some) is having other's voices coming through the TV than a piece on your head. Also, the sound quality is GREAT (what my friends tell me over MW2/BO) So overall, good video quality, great sound quality, and good for anyone who plays a lot or doesn't want to wear a headset.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Kolton Decent Product
The PSeye is an okay accessory for the PlayStation3 but its price is kind of high for the actual quality of the product. The video from the camera is not really that great, in fact i say it has terrible resolution and it shows up fuzzy; however, the microphone that it has is a different story. The microphone, since it is connected through a USB, is actually great, or should i say amazing. For a gaming console i never really thought a (somewhat) cheap accessory would work that well. Don't get too excited though because it's not absolutely amazing it's just not at all expected. Now on to one of the biggest annoyances. The method of connecting the PSeye to the PS3 is through a rather short USB wire. This wire can barely reach the top of the television and it tends to tilt since it is not heavy enough to stay down long enough. This is a huge setback as you often have to just end up holding the product to get the video correctly but the microphone also is better that way so it's okay for games like Little Big Planet 2 and games where you do not need the PSeye too often. Overall you really do not need this product unless you want the microphone, but for anything else I would say find something else.
Rated 10 out of 10 by djrick87 Playstaion Eye Is A Must
I recently bought the Eye, to talk to some friends when I'm online & talk to my little sister in England. After messing with it for a while and finding the Eye Create software online i realized I can do so much with it. I can take pictures edit them make videos, I can also access my video chat from my PSP the only thing is no one will be able to see me. I actually told my friend about to just by sending him a chat invitation to surprise him that i had it. Now all of my friends want one now. If any have has a PS3 you must get the Playstation Eye. Now That I talk to my sister In England I do not have to waist any time or money using a calling card or calling from my home phone Sony is about to change the world when it come to gaming and video chat
Rated 8 out of 10 by Big V COOL Gadget -- but not a must
Contrary to popular belief the camera is not HD, as the product description states, it's only 640x480, which is pretty good, but not better than any other webcam on the market right now. Any USB camera can be used with the PS3, so this one isn't an absolute necessary accessory. On the other hand, for the price and the games, if you don't already have a webcam and mic that you use for the PC, this may not be a bad purchase. Even though you may not need the PSEye, it should definetely be noted that the games are definitely worth a look. Not to mention how sweet it is to be able to video chat with anyone around the world over the playstation network -- which is a free feature. That in itself may make this a worthwhile purchase for some people.
Rated 10 out of 10 by kenrovi the best camera ever.
The camera is a must buy for every PlayStation 3 owners. This camera can capture your voice so you don't need a headset or Bluetooth so buy this.The Playstation Eye is amazing!!! You can use the EyeCreate program to change the FX and make your picture look pretty neat. Within the next week 3 games are going to be released including "Aquatopia", "Operation Creature Feature", and "The Trails Of Topoq". These games all are made exclusively for the Playstayion Eye. ( They Will Not Work With The EyeToy!)Overall the Playstatioon Eye is an amazing product and it has amazing video quality, not to mention the noise cancelling microphone.it have a free download game coupon that can be changed for the downloable game so buy it now $edit.
Rated 0 out of 10 by A Customer This will be good for Vidphone calls if they program it.
If they make online Vidphone calls possible with the PS3, the same way you can do this with a PC using Windows messenger service, it would be cool. Just imagine if you could have a vidphone conference with your friend from PS3 to PS3 anywhere in the world. I can only imagine looking & talking to my friends who have a PS3 & this camera in full 1080P HD!! Wow!! I cant wait to see what thier going to do with this, & how far they will go with it. The idea has some great potential.
