  1. The whole idea itself was not only neat, but it was amazingly well executed and is not only fun ... but extremely addicting as well.
  2. If you must know why I fancy this one so much, it's because you're a giant on the screen and it looks like you have sole control over the cosmos. I dig it. [Oct 2003, p.123]

    Whether you’re a hyperactive kid, an inebriated adult, or just someone who doesn’t have any hangups about looking a little goofy to have a good time, the EyeToy will make you smile for the camera.
  4. There is absolutely no reason why this product should be entertaining, much less insanely addictive - but, goodness is it ever.
  5. EyeToy feeds the average person's vanity by projecting themselves onto the television. As just about every reality show on the air proves, being on television remains an important status symbol in our culture.
  6. It's the simplicity of it that works; that's what will undoubtedly make this thing the ultimate party toy. [Nov 2003, p.146]
  7. Not only did Eye Toy get my wife to play a video game but more importantly it got me off the couch and into the action.
  8. While it may look a bit strange to move your body frantically in front of the TV screen, especially if you're playing by yourself, the EyeToy offers family-friendly fun and a little exercise, too.

As a result very few people will still be using it regularly after more than a couple of weeks. Full Review »
