Good choice if you want it
I'm really pleased with the PS4 Camera. While I wished that it turned the console on, it is however able to turn the console off with voice commands. Play Room is pretty cool and will have more content added in the future as well. If you are going to play more than a few games, you should definitely pick this up.
Not fully used yet.
I love it !!! Do you really need it rite now. No !! It's really cool looking tho sitting on the top of my HDTV's and it's small. Not like the big Xbox one camera that's a big detraction. But its not used to its full perinatal yet. I can do voice commands like Playstation power. Turn off or go to stand bye. Not as many voice commands as Xbox one. But at least it will listen to me and I don't have to repeat myself like Xbox 1. It's got facial recantation log in. So it will log into my account with just seeing my face. I have not been able to use it in party chat witch sucks. It's got four speakers on it and two camera's in it. I would recommend another controller and charger station before a camera.
MUST HAVE FOR ONLINE GAMERS
Why I like it - Voice commands are nice to use(limited but more will come) one of the Biggest reasons I love it when I play split screen online COD with family my wife and i can easily talk with my bro and his wife with out having to wear headsets, plus the ability to share and comment on clips is awesome, would much rather use this vs the mono headset that came with ps4 and for only 60 bucks it definitely increases functions and with more to come...cant wait for more voice controls to come out for ui and games
Works, Sort of.
I've had the PSCamera set up all weekend since the launch of the PS4. Currently, the only thing that makes use of it well is "The Playroom" the app the comes installed on the system. While the app is a very good tech demo, shows off everything the new controls can be used for very well, it's not really a game. Besides that the only real functionality you're going to get out of it is the voice commands. They're very nice, similar to the Kinect commands on Xbox, but there aren't as many and it can't be used to control applications. Just return you to the home screen. When they work, they're convenient and make navigating the slightly clumsy PS4 dashboard quicker than normal. But there are sometimes times where it just doesn't want to pick up the key word "PlayStation" Which is what sets the functionality into motion. Similar to the word "Xbox" on the 360 and One. All and all it's nice to have for the future. Hopefully someone will make good use of it later and they will fix the voice issues.
Voice command are choppy must speak to it like a small child if you want it to work. I appreciate how small it is but what's the point of having it if I cant respond well to what I have to say.
this is a sturdy and solid piece of equipment. i love it because it has 4 microphones built in so i don't have to wear a headset anymore, i can just talk like normal and it has crystal clear voice control. i know this because i already got my hands on one. highly recommended
A Must-Have for PlayStation 4 Owners-To-Be
Having the ability to record yourself and your gameplay without the use of a PVR saves a lot of money. Having PlayStation's new 3D camera will certainly revolutionize how people play, share, and boast online with friends and enemies alike.
You Should also note
The PlayStation camera is supposed to have a lot of functions for many of the next gen FPS games such as COD, Battlefield and Killzone, according to Sony it will allow your screen box while playing multi-player to move in accordance with you to a better vantage point, which is a focal selling point for people who have COD and Battlefield parties. Just imagine not having to worry what screen you are because you moved in the round robin play, this is awesome and has been something needed for a long time. It will sell out initially but shipment 2 and 3 should still hit before Christmas and you should be able to snag one. If you want to pre-order go for it if not wait its simple as that, this actually should be a must have for even hard core gamers because of the added functionality that is planned for the future and longevity of the system.
This is essential for PS4 owners
I have this pre-ordered along with my system, extra controller, and 3 launch titles. What really sold me on this is not the eye camera itself but the fact that I dont have to wear an annoying headset to play online with friends. The camera has 4 mics so it should have crystal clear audio. I've never been disappointed with playstation products in the past so this should be no different.
only for toying around like the rest
definataly not a must buy for the hardcore gamer just for the casual gamer or it will just sit in the box with the ps3 eye and the xbox kenect but just one guys opinion that has been gaming longer than a lot of the other reviewers have been alive !
