PlayStation Eye Chat: Shatter for PSN

Chris Morell's Avatar Posted by 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!

Just watch this trailer if you want to see the game in action while waiting for the interview to be unlocked.

Hate to say it, but that shatter logo is looking waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too phallic for its own good…

WestSiide said:

June 26th, 1:37 pm

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!!

DoomnY said:

Video doesn’t work.

Enforcer_X said:

June 26th, 1:42 pm

Sweet IDEA!

Video is down though …
But you probably knew that by now.

Patriotbball5460 said:

June 26th, 1:42 pm

the video worked perfectly fine for me, i didnt have any issues what so ever

Zangetsu15 said:

June 26th, 1:43 pm

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

Zangetsu15 said:

June 26th, 1:45 pm

alright it’s fixed

vega480 said:

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.

Enigma777 said:

I really like the PS Eye interview idea! Do it more often please!

    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.

Enforcer_X said:

June 26th, 1:50 pm

Video works and the game looks EPIC!

IGLOO05 said:

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.

WestSiide said:

@27 DustyBlue

couldn’t have said it better myself. well, I could but I’m sure it would have been deleted.

nuclear_predator said:

June 26th, 1:54 pm

Also, more PS Eye interviews please, its a good idea! :)

commedieu said:

MAGNUM-RAM said:

June 26th, 1:55 pm

I like it. Its quick, easy and very cool.
I kinda feel like the president of the united states when I use it.

Hello all.

DISMISSED !

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

tetsou9shima said:

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.

Thanks a lot Chris and a great idea of doing an interview with PSEye.

Haha nice stuff!!!

patsu said:

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.

Maguss said:

June 26th, 2:02 pm

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

crazypeng1 said:

June 26th, 2:02 pm

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?

XxBigP123xX said:

June 26th, 2:03 pm

That was nice.

Look into the camera Chris.

luizcab said:

June 26th, 2:03 pm

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.

    Not going to put him on the spot, but hopefully I\’ll have this locked down soon.

Destiny89 said:

June 26th, 2:05 pm

This is a really good idea, u guys should this more and thanks for the video, i was planning on buying one :)

Vengeful-Chaos said:

June 26th, 2:05 pm

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.

Maguss said:

June 26th, 2:07 pm

Now that I think about it I should be more clear, I already know I won, I got the email. I’m just wondering how long it’s going to take?

KidCommando said:

June 26th, 2:07 pm

@19….we now know what’s on your mind. ;)

CoeusTitan said:

June 26th, 2:08 pm

I am definitely all for the using of any and all of the PS3’s features in your blog content. The chat works well.

YO Jeff where the Hell is the:

1-ps BLOG prodcaist

Gringo234 said:

Pretty cool but I wish I could do this while in game.

Pound_lb003 said:

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.
