We check out the latest game to use Sony's EyeToy peripheral, an adventure game that ships with its very own sword.
We almost did a double take when we saw EyeToy Play: Hero at Sony's PlayStation Day in Europe. A PlayStation 2 game based on the company's USB camera peripheral, Hero is being aimed at younger players who want to play as a hero in their very own fairy tale. The game is a story-driven affair, a first for an EyeToy game, and it will also come with its very own custom peripheral, a green sword that you use to fight off the various monsters in the game. We picked up a prototype of the game at Sony's party and got a first play ahead of its release in October.
