    If you search on google something like 'Eyetoy webcam', you'll get lots of info on how to turn your eyetoy camera into a webcam. Last night I gave it a go, and I was amazed with the outcome. The capture rate is amazing, and the quality is perfect. It has a built in microphone, and you can adjust the focus [No, not all Webcams can].

    If you want to do it, I recommend this website for a tutorial.

    So, have any of you lot done it? Or plan on doing it?

    Does it have a method to turn off the led? My pc dectects it as power led, which is totally annoying.

    Ive used a friend's. And it is indeed superb quality.


    And about the pseye.
    No one's figured out how to get drivers working, and give the camera quality.
    Edit: Nevermind that. It's been worked on! Now I may actually buy one.

    What's cool is you can also you the eyetoy mic during online gameplay as a mic.
