With the Sony PlayStation Eye (PSEye), PlayStation 3 users can integrate personal video into their gaming experience. The high-quality camera delivers pristine picture quality, works well in low lighting and has a built-in high-quality microphone with background noise cancellation. Sony does not offer the software needed to use the PSEye on a PC. However, software drivers have appeared online, created by PSEye users who wish to use their camera as a computer webcam. The website Code Laboratories offers this driver for download in its download section.
