PS2 Eyetoy

Anybody else have one of these?

I bought one for me and my girl for chrissy and I'm a bit pissed off.

It's advertised as a WEBcam - but it's no such thing. Although it's usb and I can plug it into the pc, there's nary a driver to be found this side of the black stump!

I've searched high and low to no avail :(

It was quite expensive given the simple technology demos it comes with, I would have thought a driver on the cd would have been a given.

Bah.

As you said it is advertised as WebCam FOR PS2...
Sony won't give any support for it for other machines...
And by the way you can hardly use it as a webcam...(May some on-line games from EA or the upcomming Gran Tourismo 4 can, don't know). It's main use is for EYETOY games like Eyetoy Grouve. An alternative controller in other words...

its an overhyped nonsense piece of kit that isnt worth the price.
until one is capable of using it for more than bad dancing a.k.a... flailing ones limbs about in the air like a deranged umpire, i aint falling for it sony.

That's what I mean, by definition a webcam should allow me to get images onto the World Wide Web...

Whether I have to plug a network card into the ps2 or whatever I don't really care, but a webcam should be just that.

Grr.

But it is quite fun dancin around like an idiot

just found this for you:

Q. Can I use [insert model] webcam as an EyeToy on my PS2?

A. No. The EyeToy software will only recognise a camera with the exact VID/PID combonation of an original EyeToy.


so no. you gotta use the eyetoy.

sorry.
