High Stakes poker brings EyeToy-enhanced Network play

Digg!

Sony Online Entertainment has just revealed a new downloadable title for the PLAYSTATION Network. The much too awkwardly titled High Stakes on the Vegas Strip: Poker Edition will be released this summer on the Network for $9.99. A variety of play modes will be available, including Texas Hold'em, Super Hold'em, Billabong, Tahoe and Shanghai. Each style can be played as limit, pot limit or no limit poker.

The greatest draw for the title will be its online multiplayer, with up to six people playing at once. Players will be able to play quick matches, or choose to play through an entire season. There will be online leader boards, in-depth statistics, and customizable characters. Over time, players will be able to collect points and unlock new items for their characters.

One of the unique features of the game has to be its integration with cameras. Users will be able to connect a camera to the PS3 to enhance the game play experience. "Being among the first PLAYSTATION Network publishers to release a game that takes advantage of the EyeToy™ USB Camera (for PlayStation®2) and other PC compatible USB cameras is not only exciting, but also puts the player into a realistic game play setting featuring live audio and video feed," said Michael Lustenberger, VP of Marketing for Sony Online Entertainment. Screenshots can be found, after the break.

1. I don't have an EyeToy, so I guess I'm buying an Eye now! This looks pretty cool for $10 (+ price of Eye!).

3. Of course, if Sony used their heads, they would include FACE MAPPING!!! This would be a real kick in the teeth for the 360 and it's poker games.

Oh, and release it in Europe, you dicks!

Thus Stripping!

6. @5 Oops i totally missed it :(! Well there's no doubt some features to block videos. Plus since this is a GAMBLING game people playing should be over 21 and thus i am sure those people will be more mature than the kids striping.

Of course if you can setup a private room with friends you can do strip poker :)

7. When you said "EyeToy advanced gameplay" I read that as putting the cards down infront of you for the Eye to pick up.

Silly me
