I think it's supposed to be a custom-shaped USB, so that shouldn't be too hard.

Pretty sure there were camera unboxing videos in other threads. Not to mention they have been readily available for like a week now in some markets.

I'm getting one, so it's cool to get a good look at it, because honestly not much has been said or shown regarding the camera. I just committed to it because I would like to use Twitch, so I figured being able to use it like a webcam at the very least made it worth picking-up.

It's a smart move by Sony to release the PS Eye Camera early along with the Dualshock 4. It'll peak folks interest enough to buy it.

I believe the signal is analog and the analog->digital converter is in the system itself, hence the custom port.

How is Sony able to charge ONLY $60 for the camera? I was looking at webcams on Amazon.com and I noticed that a webcam that has the features of the PS4 Camera would definitely cost more than $60.

pique.

They had cameras for sale alongside the DS4s at a local Gamestop. The employee I talked to amusingly remarked how there was basically zero interest while some folks were already picking up the controllers, heh.

A "Kinect-like shape" being a rectangle? We're going level accusations of copying solely on the basis of basic geometric patterns now?

In any case it's more likely a case of function determining form more than any intent to copy. Stereoscopic cameras and mic arrays need to be laid out in certain ways to actually be effective.

So is there a magnet on that last panel of the stand or something? No sure I get how it attaches to a TV if not. If so, I could easily get this on the top of my TV. It's tiny and would be pretty inconspicuous.

To be honest I don't understand why would you need camera on launch. Isn't the only game supporting it is PlayRoom? Unless you are twitch streamer, I don't see any way to use the camera until something else comes out that uses it.

I haven't been paying attention to it but Playroom looks cool. It's pre-installed in every PS4 and DLC will be free.

Opened the box just now. The stand has three hinges that bend to hook onto the TV.
On the part where the stand holds the camera, it has some prongs that snap the camera into place.
