Sony PlayStation Eye camera is a new accessory for gamers for the Sony PlayStation. The Eye webcam will come with four microphones, two zoom levels, and capture as high as 120fps. This webcam is meant to enhance gameplay on the Sony PlayStation game console. And Sony has plan to add new facial recognition capabilities to its Sony PlayStation Eye webcam. Sony said that their new PlayStation Eye webcam for their console, will be able to detect gender and even tell the age of the face.

The webcam will also be able to differentiate special facial features, such as nose, eyes and ears and is even smart enough to know if you're smiling or not. With this webcam to work with the Sony PlayStation game console, the gamers should be able to use their facial expressions or let different faces control gaming etc.

Some more, the PS Eye webcam will also work with the Sony Motion Controller, with the Eye camera tracking the X, Y and Z motion by using the glowing sphere. However the motion controller is also equipped with accelerometer which is able to track motions as well while the gamer is outside of the Eye camera.

In order for games to tap on the Eye camera capabilities, developers must add this new functionality in their future game titles. Developer libraries will be available for game development studios to ease their development to include support for the Eye cam in their titles.
