  1. The PS3 will only recognize the PS2 PlayStation EyeToy and PS3 PlayStation Eye.

    PC based web cams all need drivers to function properly, and you can not download drivers to the PS3. Because of this, the web cam may not work, and if it does work, it may not fully work properly.

    Here is the difference between the PlayStation EyeToy and PlayStation Eye:

    The PlayStation Eye camera has many improvements over the original EyeToy.

    The PlayStation Eye has:

    An ultra fast frame rate for improved video tracking and responsiveness

    Four times the resolution of the EyeToy camera

    Built in four microphone array for superior audio quality as well as the convenience of not needing a separate head set to chat

    Engineered to perform well in low light conditions

    Includes a dual action lens for wide angle and close up options

    Overall, the PlayStation Eye was made specifically to enhance the communication and interactive gaming experience within the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.

  2. you can use a playstation eye or a ps2 eyetoy , a pc camera has windows based drivers and won’t be recognised by the ps3. I recommend spending the extra for the pseye , it’s way better quality than the eyetoy and the eyetoy won’t work with all games or the eyepet.
