Sony PlayStation Eye Webcam


There's no real need to buy this camera for your PS3 until now. I bought it for the new SingStar game and I love it! This is the game that really makes good use of the eye camera where it takes photos and short videos of you and your friends singing....

A great addition to games like SingStar where you can take silly photos and videos of you and your friends

It's wired and the blue LED light comes on whenever your PS3 is on. Could be annoying to some people. No good games support it except for SingStar (if you're into kareoke, that is)

Sony PlayStation Eye Webcam


I like this eye webcam. Video chatting with friend who has this webcam also looks smooth. Comparing to other webcam, this one has very few lagging. The build-in microphone is very good in terms of picking up and transferring voice conversation. I...

Fast frame rate, extends game capability, able to record good video and take good picture, provide software to edit video and picture, good microphone

wire, the base is light so need to adjust the position often

Sony PlayStation Eye Webcam


Bought this Playstation eye for having TV conferencing with family afar who has a PS3 as well. My children love it very much because they can see their grandpa and grandma from a big screen TV. Games that made for this are great, my daughter love the...

Great for TV conferencing with family afar for FREE! Interactive games are fun and intuitive

A little lag on video streaming, maybe Sony Network is the bottleneck

Sony PlayStation Eye Webcam


My 15-months old son enjoys the aquarium, interactive screen saver. At least he's moving instead of just watching TV during the winter time. We also use it from time to time as a video surveillance, and I can see it live using remote play capability on...

Good Microphone, well built, good price, plug and play

No Bluetooth Connection

Sony PlayStation Eye Webcam


The camera alone can be had for about $33, but the camera does not come with any bundled software. You can download a small basic video capturing and editing software from the Playstation network for free and there are about half a dozen games you can...

Cool looking. Inexpensive. There's potential

No bundled software. USB cable makes it difficult to position on TV. Mediocre camera without proper lighting

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

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
