Sony announced that its Eye camera/microphone accessory for the PlayStation 3 will be hitting store shelves this summer. The Eye comes as a follow up to Sony's EyeToy, which was released for the Playstation 2. The Eye features a USB camera that can record up to 120 frames per second with a resolutions of 320 by 240, or at 60 fps at VGA resolution. According to Sony, these frame rates will ensure smooth footage, and we'd tend to agree, though we'd love to see a higher pixel count, something in the HD range. The camera also features a low-light option and a two position zoom lens that can capture close-ups and wider-angle full body shots.

According to reports, the interactive, VGA cam will be heading out to stores bundled with Hasrbo's RPG / card game The Eye of Judgment on October 23rd, for the shockingly low price of $69.99.
