How To Mount That PlayStation Eye Camera With Minimal Fuss

The PlayStation Move controller requires that you set a PlayStation Eye camera above or below your TV. Don't think that'll work for you? Neither did I, until discovering this trick. Try it yourself. (Playstation Eye, Playstation Move, PS3)

Are you kidding me, kotaku?

You made a fucking guide on how to set your camera on or around your TV?
First you clearly slow down a GT5 video and now you make a guide about this?
How dumb do you think we are?

@below

Well, that makes one of us.

Kotaku didn't actually slow down that GT5 video, the site that published it did (probably un-intentionally) It was Kotaku's shite reporting, jumping the gun, sensationalizing and all round stubbornness to admit they were wrong that made them lose a load of cred.

@ Jack Off
What the hell is wrong with you?
The PSEye is built in such a way that the lead that connects it to your PS3 hinders positioning of the camera because it's too rigit, this alleviates that problem and they've produced a pretty informative video showing something which I'm sure will help out a fair few people. You're comment is a pure hater comment and completely unfounded. Look at all the people below who have tried this and have had success with it.
You obviously have a personal problem with them to be so bitter against them for trying to help people out a bit.
In the future think before you post, otherwise you'll end up looking like an arsehole again.

How to Mount Kinect with minimal fuss
(Kinect is like 2x the size of the PS Eyetoy)
Hallmark Moment  +   1989d ago
Not sure the reason why you mentioned Kinect, Kinect has Telescopic vision/cameras needing a wide head plus it has the latest hardware in it. There doesn't need to be a video on Kinect, Kinect has wall mounting accessories, stands, flat panel HDTV clips etc.

He mentioned it because they both do the same thing
The OP was just telling a joke but I guess xbox lovers have no sence of humor. Since Kenect was designed to be a Better eyetoy just like move was designed to be a better Wii controler I think its ok to mention Kenect.

Will it fit on those thin-ass OLED TVs mounted to a wall?

Step 1: Open the box
Step 2: Sit it on the TV

works, cant believe i never thought of this myself.. its just a simple design with that flat side flush against the tv.. it even looks like of cool and keeps the cord out of your eyesight if you have your ps3 off the side or in a cabinet as it just runs down the back of the tv

very useful indeed, i was actually going to buy one of those tv mounts but now i dont need it.

jumped around and ran from side to side, stayed in place as well.

Who would have thunk it?!
I just did this and I'm impressed. Can't believe that I never thought about mounting it on top like that. I thought that base of the camera was round all that way but I forgot that the back was flat.
forcefullpower  +   1988d ago
Agree
LoL. I wondered why the flat was on the back. Simple but effective idea. I have seen loads of vids where they selotaped it to the top of the TV.

Amazing Tip Thank you
I have had the ps eye for ages and always sat it to the side of my middle surround sound speaker as my TV top also slopes backwards.

I was thinking of getting a $15 mounting clip I saw online as I have ordered Move but this tip as just solved the issue and saved me the expense. Thank you for posting this it is far better than the usual flamebait articles we see on here...lol
My_Outer_Heaven  +   1989d ago
Hmm
There will probably be some sort of mountable shelf to put the camera ontop of the tv someday.
Jamaicangmr  +   1989d ago
LMAO!!!
Seriously?.... Ok Kotaku, thanks i guess but you still on my black listed sites after that GT5 video though. Nice try lol!

I just put mine on top of the tv and press the cable between the air grill on the back so the camera won't fall off. it works great

Anyone who owns a Samsung LE40F86BDX/XEU Doesn't need to do this because the top of the TV is completely flat :)

It isn't a trick, it's part of the design
People have to understand that some things are design specifically for reasons. I have a feeling some people think you have to throw away your dual shock controller when the batteries can't charge anymore?
buffig  +   1989d ago
It is clearly designed to be used in that way, it's just that no one ever told us. This has solved a bit of a problem for me. So simple but brilliant design.
