Sony has released a video detailing the history of the EyeToy which is pretty interesting in itself but what is more interesting really is the number of off handed comments they send over Microsoft’s way.

  • Perfect placement of the PS Kinetic game
  • Tons of gameplay footage of a Kinect Adventures style game
  • Buttons… always the buttons
  • Menu’s
  • Accuracy
