Dualshock 4, PlayStation 4 Eye Specs Revealed

PS4 EyeAlongside the PlayStation 4, Sony announced the Dualshock 4 controller and the PlayStation 4 Eye.

In a press release, Sony stated this about the PlayStation 4 Eye:

PlayStation®4 Eye, a newly developed camera for PS4 incorporates two high-sensitive cameras that have wide-angle lenses with 85-degree diagonal angle views which can recognize the depth of space precisely.  This enables PlayStation®4 Eye to cut out the image of player from background, or to grasp players’ position in front and behind, further broadening the ways to enjoy games.  Incorporated four microphones are also capable of accurate sound detection and source origination.  In addition, users will be able to login to their PS4 with face recognition and are capable of using their own body movements or voices to enjoy games more intuitively.  Furthermore, PlayStation®4 Eye senses the color of DUALSHOCK®4’s light bar to judge the positions of multiple players, and set characters in the same positions or let a character talk to a particular player, enabling players to enjoy games in new way.

The specs for the device are below:

External Dimension Approx. 186mm x 27mm x 27mm (width x height x depth)

It was speculated that the PS4 Eye would come bundled along with the PS4, due to the controller being equipped with a light bar, but Sony hasn’t confirmed that claim. The Dualshock 4 will also come equipped with a touchpad that mimics that of the PlayStation Vita. The specs confirmed that the touch pad is clickable.

The Select and Start buttons have been integrated into an all-new Options button on the right side of the touchpad. The left side of the controller will sport a Share button, which will allow games to stream their gameplay to their friends or upload videos to places such as UStream. Gamers will also be able to charge their controller or smartphone via USB while the PS4 is powered down.
