5 Things You *Don’t* Know:

Mark Valledor's Avatar Posted by Mark Valledor on Sep 20, 2007 // Marketing Manager, SCEA

Over the last few past few months we’ve been touring the gaming convention scene with THE EYE OF JUDGMENT. We’ve received tremendous feedback from many of you at the San Diego Comic Con, Wizard World Chicago, GenCon & Penny Arcade Expo. There were lots of great questions out there, and we thought it would be good to do a quick recap of the “5 things you don’t know” about THE EYE OF JUDGMENT.

1. There is only one “E” in JUDGMENT
First off, not to sound like a middle school teacher, but I wanted to clarify the proper spelling of the word “JUDGMENT”. Notice that there is no “E” after “JUDG”. With apologies to our UK gamers, this is the correct spelling – according to Wikipedia (and no this definition wasn’t doctored by me or other SCE employee’s…figured I’d beat some of you to that snipe).

2. Pricing = $69.99
Yep, you’ve heard it here first. The SRP for THE EYE OF JUDGMENT software bundle in the US is $69.99. The bundle includes the following:
• THE EYE OF JUDGMENT software (disc case, manual, Blu-ray disc)
• PLAYSTATION Eye camera
• Judgment (camera) stand
• 9 Fields Battle Mat
• (1) Starter deck (includes 30 Summoning Cards + 4 Function Cards)
• (1) Booster pack (includes 8 randomly inserted Summoning Cards with one guaranteed to be rare or ultra rare)

Additionally, Summoning Cards will be sold separately in the form of Booster Packs and pre-constructed Theme Decks, available by Wizards of the Coast.
• Booster Pack: SRP = $3.75
• Pre-constructed Theme Deck: SRP = $14.99 (Five different Theme Decks available. Each fully playable and include a bonus Summoner’s Companion book with background, play tips and card lists)

3. Availability
THE EYE OF JUDGMENT will ship to North American stores on 10/23 to sync with a global launch by the end of October. With a global rollout, gamers on the PLAYSTATION Network will be able to battle against fellow EOJ players from around the world.

4. Expansion Packs
The October launch of THE EYE OF JUDGMENT and its Summoning Cards introduces the first in a long series of card sets available for play. Stay tuned for further announcements on upcoming expansion packs and new Summoning Cards. Each new set will consist of more powerful creatures and spells to introduce new strategies and gameplay mechanics to refresh the EOJ gaming experience.

5. Online cheating
The most popular question we’ve heard revolves around online cheating. Mainly, “What’s going to prevent players from ‘stacking the deck’ when playing online?” – meaning, cheating your card draw so you get your best cards from the start. Fortunately, THE EYE OF JUDGMENT introduces a new paradigm in drawing cards when playing against your opponents online. First, you’ll have to register and save your Summoning Deck, offline. Then, when logged on, you select the Summoning Deck you wish to play. Once paired up with your opponent, the PS3 will automatically shuffle and randomly pull your cards for you. Once these cards are selected, you must pull these cards from your ‘physical’ deck and draw them to your hand and play the Summoning Cards on the Battle Mat, as normal.

Take a peek at a new video that we created to help outline this completely unique gaming experience merging the best of two worlds – video games and trading card battles. Enjoy!

Looking forward to the game but tell me why, when the game is being released at $69.99 in the US, you have to pay £69.99 for it in the UK?

the exchange rate would lump this at about £35 so even about £49.99 would be a fair price…but no, Sony decide to screw with the fans in the EU as usual…

Forget all this other stuff! Yu-Gi-oh please!!!!
If Sony wants to attract a mass market quickly before the holidays, a Yu-Gi-oh compatible eye toy game would be insane!!!

Heres a good question for you:

What way are expansions going to be delivered? I take it they will both consist of a software update with a card set sold in stores. Will these both cost money or will the software update be free? Is the expansion software only going to be available on the PSN Store? My bro is going to America (I live in the UK) and I would get him to buy me this (so I can play a month earlier) but it would be pointless if I couldnt add the expansions. Will the the expansion software be available for purchase on the psn store only with the cards separately in games stores or is it updated for free via the network within the main software then cards can be bought freely at will?

I will be getting this game next week Wednesday. If not only for the EYE. I really hope that people with access to high end color laser printers don’t start making decks of there own. I already heard people talking of doing just that when it comes out. I really don’t think thier is any real way to stop people from cheating so I might not even really get into this game. Unless I play with people I know in real life and are not cheaters. I don’t care if I lose fair and square but when you put cheaters into the mix, it just ruins the game before it can grow any feet. All I can say is that the cards should’ve been make with a type of hologram that the camera had to check for to authenticate to the system and while in a match as well for safe measure.

People would cheat if you put on a hologram…. you just take the doubles and triples you have and cut the holo out… then paste it on your copy. I think cheaters are just a fact of life. You play a bunch and save the guys you like to play against on your friends list… no diff than playing WOW or something. You group with tons of people and you encounter ninjas…. but you add them to your blocked list and press on. It’s not worth skipping ever trying something with the potential to be really fun.
