Joystiq plays with the PS Eye


We're still waiting for our Eye, but it looks like the cool kids at Joystiq have already had some quality time with their's. A few tidbits they've discovered:
  • The cord for the camera is about 6.5 feet in length.
  • Proper lighting is required for Eye of Judgment.
  • The camera is an improvement over the PS2 EyeToy with: "smoother frame rate and slightly crisper on-screen image, as well as a nice auto-focus capability."
  • Eye is not compatible with PS2 games and will not be recognized by the Xbox 360. A PC will detect the device, but appropriate drivers have not been released yet.
The Eye hits retail stores October 23rd by itself for $40, or included with Eye of Judgment for $70. To read Joystiq's complete hands-on and check out their pics, click here.

2. Where were they playing with this at? The bathroom of a double wide trailer? Look at that floor. That's how they realized they needed proper lighting, they couldn't film each other on the toilet in the dark? I'm getting The Eye of Judgment still. Just not filming anyone in the bathroom.

3. So its not in HD then? You would imagine that anything on the PS3 would all be in HD, can't see why this PSeye isn't. Should have been bluetooth, didn't like the wire on the eyetoy cam. It look like the matt isn't paper but some sort of cloth so you can iron out those creases, got 1 out of 3 right.

4. Eep. Only 6.5 foot chord. I'm gonna have to sit close to my TV for Eye of Judgment. Extension chord maybe?

5. What?!?! no PS2 support? I just started Eyetoy:Kinetic! oh well.

6. @5: I doubt USB 1.1 could support the data this camera is capable of spewing out. Not only that but the PS2 probably couldn't handle 60fps of video from this thing either. It's like asking a Wii to render Far Cry.

7. @6: I think he means PS2 game support.

8. "6.5 feet in length"

Agreed.

10. "USE THE METRIC SYSTEM YOU TWATS!!!! Like the rest of the world."

Agreed more.

11. "USE THE METRIC SYSTEM YOU TWATS!!!! Like the rest of the world."

Yeah, its a real good idea to insult people when you want them to do something.

12. @6: The ps2 is a very capable machine, we've only tapped about 70% of it's power at most. #7 was right. I'm using eyetoy kinetic on my ps3.

13. Has anyone noticed in EOJ screenshots that they render the characters shadow on your hand, depending from where the lighting is coming from, now that is just sick!
