PlayStation Eye Chat: Shatter for PSN

Chris Morell's Avatar + Posted by Chris Morell on Jun 26, 2009 // Senior Social Media Specialist

Man, somehow we missed the incredibly cool upcoming PSN game, Shatter, at E3. Thankfully, the kind folks at developer Sidhe agreed to participate in the PSB’s first-ever video interview using the PlayStation Eye. And considering the company resides down in New Zealand (insert generic Flight of the Conchords quip here), it’s just about the only way to get them talking in-person.

Shatter is like Arkanoid on steroids…and we mean that in the most positive way. Here, Managing Director Mario Wynands talks about the game’s slick graphics, power-ups and unique push/pull gameplay that makes this PSN game the real deal.

And what do you think of the PS3 Video Chat format via the Eye? Drop a comment and let us know…it could be a great way to conduct interviews with folks from across the globe.

For a second, i though it was voice chat in game, but no, how misleading :(

Still, it”s a nice feature in the game

Makes sense for interviews over Eye chat. You should do one a week!

is it necessary to reiterate the same thing over and over. yes the videos not working were all capable of figuring that out. and the hell with in game voice chat. you want that feature go pay for a xbl subscription. the FREE PSN service is good enough as it is. Remember, ITS FREE!!

Still no vid… you should change “PlayStation Eye Chat: Shatter for PSN” into “Video Not Available: Shattering everyone’s confidence.”

alright it’s fixed

Game looks cool, good idea for using the Playstation Eye for the interview, but we need more stuff to use the Playstation Eye at home.

    It was a really good opportunity for an \”out of the way\” developer like us to get some exposure.

    Glad you guys are liking the format and thanks to the Blog for giving us the opportunity to be the first.

Seems like a great idea with the video chat and talking to developers overseas.

Game looks interesting, what are the chances it’s going to be a PSP game as well, down the road.

What an easier way to keep up with Heavy Rain from the developers in Europe… :D
You should definitely do more of this…

That was great…… keep up the eye interviews (especially with the more attractive interviews). Thanks for more pseye games as well. it would be great if you set up an interview with the makers of EYE PET.

If you want to do this PS Eye Chat thing, you might as well include the PS3 owners as well. It’d be a good way to build up the community, provided you manage it well.

Hey Jeff I know is isn’t on topic, but any word on the Uncharted 2 prizes? Maybe I’m just being impatient… :(!!!!

+ crazypeng1 on June 26th, 2009 at 2:02 pm said:

well, the blog is sorta glitchin’ on me. first the video didn’t work, but thats ok, it does now, but then it says i have the ability to edit post, and i was like WHA, and then when i refreshed it left, and instead it said i could look at it in the mobile version :D. But when i look at the story individually instead of the home page, it doesn’t give me the option. i’m guessing the mobile version isn’t officially anounced yet?

Look into the camera Chris.

Simply awesome… how come you guys never did it before. This should be the default interview platform on the blog from now on. No commute time, no expense approval… This is great.

Loved Shatter! Who’s the next to be interviewed?

Cheers and congrats.

You know, we could get a whole poop-load more interviews by you guys if they were all done with the PS eye, interviews in person is sooo 19th century.

Love the look of the game so much, it looks so satisfying.

I like the PlaystationEye a lot,a nd I like interveiws conducted with it.

I would LOVE to be able to have video chat running during gameplay, but I expect that pretty hardware intensive.
