Sony unveils new PS3 Eye Camera bundle
Sony have announced a new PlayStation Eye Camera bundle for the lucky gamers out in Japan.
While the PS Eye USB camera has been out for a while, the interesting addition to the bundle is a software title called Memoushon, which contains six casual interactive games.
Sony Computer Entertainment Japan describes these as:
“Make” – software for editing images and sounds recorded through PlayStation Eye camera.
“Look” – Interactive virtual aquarium brought to life by the motion sensitive camera, where users can feed fish and watch them glide across the tank.
“Solve” – Puzzle game. Users have to change the floor surface of the labyrinth by the movements of their hands and roll the ball to the goal.
“Play” – Puzzle action game. Users have to save the “sticky” creatures in the game with the movement of their hands.
“Fly” – Interactive art experience that let users travel over ancient Japanese paintings, sending bird flocks soaring using hands and body movement.
“Move” – Interactive art experience that creates visual effects from body movement and sound.
The PS Eye will also allow you to video chat to six people at the same time – they simply have to be registered as your friend on the PlayStation Network, and of course, have a PS Eye themselves.
For now Sony only announced the PS3 accessory bundle in Japan with no news on if it will reach Europe. It will start shipping on July 24th for 5,000 Yen (about £25).
