Before I say anything about the camera, please note that there are Win XP drivers for this device. I have downloaded them and sucessfully used it as a web cam. The titles I have are the covert spy game and sega superstars. Please don’t pay retail price for any of the eye toy games. If you do you will probably come to the realization that you overpaid. The games are alright, but have limited levels and repeat gameplay. The sega superstars game is great for parties or having people over. Get the camera and the games used for a great price and it will be well worth owning this camera.

-Image quality is abismal; I expected that.
-In low light, it cannot see anything. If the flash is turned on, pictures appear very pink.
-I plugged it into my PS3, entered Burnout Paradise City multiplayer got hit by someone, and got a Platinum trophy!
-After seeing the PS3-Eye in bestbuy, I bought this because I assumed the quality could not be much worse…I was wrong. It is no good for pictures or video, and the microphone is either non-existant or broken. On top of that, I already have several webcams that are superior to this unit…but none of them work with the PS3. It is BS that sony makes us buy a camera to get a platinum trophy…accessories should not be required to unlock trophies.

I’d originally gotten this for my PS2 (original edition, and still works today!), and over time become burnt out on the Eyetoy games, I have the 360 kinect now. I’ve then just recently rebuilt my desktop and needed a webcam, after finding this in a drawer I discovered it’s fantastic as a high-end webcam. The built-in microphone makes it even better! Not at all pricey too, gonna get a couple of these for relatives, as webcams.
Only one little dislike, as with mine I’ve noticed in prolonged use, lets say a long skype call, the intense bare led’s can be a little blinding after a while. Fixable, but annoying.
As far as I know it’s only possible with windows, but if you want to use yours as a webcam it won’t install automatically. You can get the drivers here: […
