good cam for PS3


I'm going to try this with Gran Turismo 5's cockpit view, but haven't set it up yet as I just started the game last week

long cord, works well with Eye Create, the kids love the program on the PS3. Mic seems to work well also

the cord seems stiff, so it's a little hard to situate the cam as it likes to be unbalanced somewhat. I don't recall having that problem with the PS2 Eye toy

Not sure if frame corruption is hardware or software. Am blaming Cheese until Ubuntu updates.

Works as advertised. Easy to insert IR filter for FTIR projects

Weird frame corruption with Cheese webcam studio

A Perfect Mic Input


The mic picks up only the voice. Sitting in front of a TV you hear no game noise from the mic, just pure voice. Seems as if its a directional mic? Video is actually pretty good and tracks well for a $35 camera. Great when your showing friends new...

Would have liked a bit more free play in swivel and rotation adjustments. Camera seems to point low, as if it should be placed above your tv. Propped up now so its okay

None so far

Fantastic Microphone!


I bought the Playstation Eye soley for a microphone. Never used it as a camera, so can't comment on that. What a major improvement over using bluetooth ear devices! You never have to recharge it and it turns on automatically with your ps3. I highly...

Excellant microphone. Don't have to wear an ear piece

None, for me

Decent Camera


This is a PS3 camera, so I don't think this is a con really, but it will not work on a computer... at all. It would be nice to see drivers for it. This also needs to have more support from developers, such as Burnout Paradise.

The mic works really good and it's a good enough camera to work in voice chat. At least it's smooth

Needs a lot of light to really work without grain or noise. My biggest problem is still from the quality. The coloring seems really yellow in a room even well lit. Oh well

Great Camera!


Maybe its just me, but depending on the tv im hooked up to, sometimes when i go in EyeCreate to make videos, the picture will seem really grainy sometimes and crisp others. i dont get it, but ever since i got my new HDTV, its been fine. who knows.

Definitely a step up from the Eye Toy of the last generation. the resolution is i believe doubled from the Eye Toy. Great FPS (a solid 60 FPS). Very solid build to it; cant tell you how many times its slid off the back of the tv scraping the wall and...

Does NOT work on PC as a webcam :(, unlike the old Eye Toy. Try as you might, but there are no drivers out there compatible with it. Not enough PS Eye games on the PS Store (yet). the current ones all suck worse then the old Eye Toy games

Not bad at all...


I think we will see more and more games begin to make use of these cameras in this generation. With the previous generation, they were more or less niches, but now will likely be put to clever uses beyond just popping bubbles and "teleconferencing"....

I have the cameras for both my XBox360 and Playstation3. The image quality for the PS3 camera is basically on par with the image quality of the XBox360 camera: 640x480x60hz. With both cameras, you will need to get creative with front lighting. Both...

As with the XBox360 camera, front lighting is a must. Both cameras are very dark without front lighting. Both are also, obviously, standard definition. To be honest, though, I don't think I would care to look at strangers, or even most friends, in high...

Worth every penny


Enjoy using as a headset in games. It is very nice just pushing chat and saying something without a thing hanging on your ear.

Great substitute for a headset. Good FPS and decent image quality. Awesome microphone array. Video chat feature is nice. durable like all PlayStation products.

Not great image quality.
