Sony announces Eye Toy for release in early 2004 - preorders opened


Ever wanted to actually be in a video game? No? Well, you will after playing with the EyeToy, the most original and fun video game accessory for years. The EyeToy is a WebCam-type thing that comes with a couple of mini games. It sits on top of, or beneath, your TV and plugs into the USB port of your PS2. Once it's turned on it projects a live image of your room and whoever is standing around in it onto one of the games. But that's not the half of it. Once the chosen player has positioned themselves onscreen and the selected game has begun, what's happening on-screen is controlled by their body movements--the joypad isn't involved at all.

EyeToy is tedium personified if you're playing on your own, but get just a couple of mates together and it's easily the best party game ever made.

After its famous release in Europe earlier this year, Sony has now announced a release for Japan in January 2004. Preorders for the Eye Toy camera including 1 game are now open at US$ 95.
