The Eye of Judgment to be released Oct. 23 for $70

While Sony still has some work to do to explain Afrika, Mark Valledor, SCEA marketing manager, thought it was about time to shed some light on The Eye of Judgment, so he posted a new video and five things you don't know about the game on the official PlayStation blog. For your reading pleasure, I've condensed it all into a few sentences.

The game, which features the word judgment with only one "e" in its title, will be released for $70 on Oct. 23 in North America, followed by a global launch later in the month. Yes, it will be bundled with the PlayStation Eye, and expansion packs will be available to buy further down the line.

Lastly, Sony has implemented a system to disallow online cheating by forcing users to register their decks offline. Their decks will then be available to be chosen when they play against an online opponent and will be randomly shuffled and drawn by the game. Players will then have to play their corresponding physical cards in the "real" world.

For a much more in-depth explanation, keep reading on.

[Thanks, Ruben!]
  1. The Eye of Judgment will be priced at $70 and will include the game, PlayStation Eye, the battle mat, a starter deck that includes 30 Summoning and four Function cards and a booster pack that contains eight random Summoning cards with one rare or ultra-rare guaranteed to be packed in.
  2. Sony's virtual card game will ship in North America Oct. 23, followed by a global launch at the end of October.
  3. Further down the line, expansion packs will be introduced that promise to bring gamers more powerful creatures and spells that will alter gameplay mechanics to keep the game "fresh."
  4. Sony already has a plan to keep gamers from cheating online. Before playing online, you will have to register your Summoning deck offline. Then, when you log in online, select your desired deck and are paired against your foe, the game will automatically shuffle your deck and randomly select which cards are drawn through the game itself. You will then be forced to draw the selected card from your physical deck and play said card.
  5. Lastly, much to the chagrin of UK gamers, the title definitely has no "e" in judgment, which is the common spelling found in the Bible, according to Wikipedia.
Valledor also noted Summoning cards will be available for purchase by Wizards of the Coast in booster packs and pre-constructed theme decks for $3.75 and $15, respectively.

Posted at 10:14PM on Sep 20th 2007 by Nazim

3. that sounds like a good deal for the price of any PS3 game,. but i guess it's not a full game like other,. I mean there won't be a "story mode" considerign the type of game it is,. or will there? Can we play against the comp??

I'll have this right away can't wait.

5. The Bible's spelling aside, Ramuh uses 'Judgment Bolt.' So I'm good.

Posted at 10:24PM on Sep 20th 2007 by JKPierce

6. I think whether I consider getting this depends on a standalone EyeToy.

Posted at 10:25PM on Sep 20th 2007 by ruibing

7. To Tim Parsons:

According to the video, there is a solo mode where you play against the computer so you can refine your deck.

8. @5 lol indeed he does,. and In Canada Judges pass Judgment!,. hell i don't think i've ever seen Judgment spelt with a E b4 when it was brought up because of this game was first I heard of it.

And I wonder just how hard these expansion packs will be to find once the games released?

Posted at 10:28PM on Sep 20th 2007 by Tim Parsons

9. @7 yeah but it's just one and one competition with the comp, I mean an actual STORY, there's yet to be any indication of one ,. i would assume not with it's nature,. but that's cool,. I was just pointing it out that's all. Game as no ENDING in other words,. you play it strickly for fun all the time

15. Wizards is making the cards for this. I'm getting the $70 set. 8 summoning cards included.

Posted at 2:46AM on Sep 21st 2007 by plyx

16. Oops, meant 30. I did think it was 8 function cards, though, but the post says 4.

Posted at 2:49AM on Sep 21st 2007 by plyx

17. @1, $70. Sony said the game was included "free". Essentially their claim is that they are selling the Eye for $70 and throwing in a game free much like the original EyeToy was. So I wouldn't expect a version without a game to be coming out.

Posted at 4:39AM on Sep 21st 2007 by Nick

18. One thing bugs me about the add-on packs... what's to stop someone from printing them out? What if someone scanned all the cards and torrented them so people can download/print/use cards without buying them?

Posted at 4:58AM on Sep 21st 2007 by Skyfire360

19. Really nice. The PS3 is getting alot of great titles. Not just a bunch of FPS.

You need to register decks, they probably have a serial you need to input. Similar yto cd keys that most PC games have. If you want to play online you need a valid serial which can only be used by one person.

Posted at 5:27AM on Sep 21st 2007 by Egster

20. @17: That doesn't hold up too well in light of the list price for the PSEye being $40. So...it's more like you buy this game for $30 and pay $40 for the camera. Not too bad.
