I have written a review with Anthony Barker for 360monster.com on the new Xbox Live Vision Camera, which is released in the UK tomorrow:
I remember playing on the original Xbox (1) when I had the privilege to go on the Xbox Live Beta Test in the UK, how bizarre it was to be talking to people from quite a few countries. It took a lot of getting used to and definitely required a certain amount of confidence to speak to random people you have never met before. The same is going to happen all over again with a new accessory for Xbox Live, which is the Xbox Live Vision Camera.
It was only a matter of time before Microsoft jumped aboard the webcam ship and set sail to Eye Toy Ville. It’s been a long time coming and I wont go into a rant about whose copying who and all that nonsense, the whole games industry is full of people tipping their hat at each others creations whether they are games, software or even hardware.
