I would absolutely get one if there was video chat :/
Ripsta7th  +   169d ago
Yep same here, it might come soon though :) as of now the camera is pretty useless unless you stream and want people to see you
SuperBlur  +   169d ago
you have playroom too you know :D <3
McDomination  +   169d ago
There's no video chat???
Vystrel  +   168d ago
No its only uses are twitch, face login, and playroom. Video chatting is so much more important to me than those things, either to talk to family or just screw around with friends

Not that great, it's been $46 on Newegg for weeks.

Yeh, I bought it 2 weeks about on Amazon for $42, $45.xx after taxes. I don't like how you have to set the camera up perfect and move your position to fit your face in the box for when you stream though. I thought it'd find your face and put it in the box there. I found that strange, considering it clearly can find your face and track it like with Asobi.

Does it not move like the Kinect?
XtraTrstrL  +   169d ago
No, you have to position the cam and yourself so that your face is in the box. It's annoying, I guess once you get it perfect, and always sit in the same place then it's ok. It still is shocking that it works like that though. The camera can find faces though, because with the little games, they know where your face is if you move around or if others are in the room, Asobi can target faces. The avatar box though, when you stream - it doesn't move at all, so if you shift around it'll just be in the same spot all lamely.

That really isn't a massive price drop

Camera sucks ... I wish I could use my logitech camera like the ps3 allow me to do.... PS4 is 3 steps back from the ps3 in terms of software and functionality.... I still cant believe I can't use my Sony bluetooth headset which works fine on ps3 by the way and still no basic MP3 or jpeg playback... Sony this gen has taking a proprietary type stance with the ps4 ... if they cant get money from it then you are not going to be useing it on the ps4 unless companies get licenses and permission from sony and a piece of the pie.....

More and more I regret buying the ps4 I should have use that money to futher upgrade my PC ... I havent even paid for psn+ in months because theres no games worth it.. I only use it for netflix or amazon video
cee773  +   169d ago
Well no one is making you keep it sell it and upgrade your PC.
jacksons98  +   169d ago
I don't believe you. Do you need your MP3s on both systems? I don't. I want to listen to music or look at my photos I fire up my PS3. Would be nice to have it on PS4, but it's not a big deal and Sony said it's all coming anyway. And your comment about PS+ is totally ridiculous. Between PS4 and PS3 there are 5 games for August alone? Last month was great too 4 games. Towerfall is a blast with friends and Strider was pretty good too. Deadspace 3 free? Yeah really not worth it /sarcasm.. Give me a break.

My psn ID right there.... I don't have to lie... I regret buying the ps4 and the reason why I dont sell it is because I won't get the exact money I spent on it back... I rather it sit there and collect dust. This gen for both consoles so far suck!!!!
TheRealHeisenberg  +   169d ago
Still overpriced in my opinion. $15 to $20 at best for me or I'll just do without one.
KwietStorm  +   169d ago
That's even cheaper than the PS3 camera was. lol $20
TheRealHeisenberg  +   169d ago
Lo, cheap is my middle name. I can barely afford to game anymore. Gotta get good deals new or used.
KwietStorm  +   169d ago
That's fair, I can understand that.
Macdaddy71  +   169d ago
Why would anyone buy it?? Price drop cause it's same crap as the Kinect...they both great if you 5 years old n had any games for it.. Real gamers don't want this junk...
Real gamers want games, heck my 5 yr grandson don't even like the Kinect cause they no games!!!
Please Sony n MS make a system for 2 yr to 10 yr old kids n leave us gamers systems alone

More than likely Playroom if that's your thing, game streaming if that's your thing, or the potential of Morpheus.
strangeaeon  +   169d ago
Does it include a PS4?
Soldierone  +   169d ago
Had mine since around launch, it's been sitting on my TV doing nothing. (Well unless it's spying on me ;) )

It's useful for streaming, but so far beyond that it has been doing absolutely nothing. Playroom is fun for about 5 minutes, that's it.
Surreal  +   169d ago
Just wait for Project Morpheus my friend ;)
minialex  +   169d ago
Yeah... just need a 20ft extension cable now, por favor!
Scatpants  +   169d ago
Probably gonna need the camera for when Morpheus comes out. Might be a good idea to pick one up now.

"Author" doesn't know what massive means.
