The PlayStation Eye web camera allows players to incorporate video into a PlayStation 3 production. This successor to the PlayStation 2 Eye Toy produces high-quality digital images and is paired with an advanced microphone. The desirable features of the PSEye leave many owners wanting to use their camera on a PC. The PSEye does not come with the necessary drivers to use the camera on a PC, but Code Laboratories offers a free download of the drivers on its website.
