Sony's Eye Toy makes a splash in Europe

OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA (11/03/2003) - The EyeToy: Play, a set of strangely entertaining mini-games for the PlayStation 2's EyeToy webcam, has sold over a million units in Europe.

The EyeToy: Play is sold with the EyeToy, and features games where you wildly flail your arms in front your TV to wipe windows, karate chop and box.

The game and webcam was released in July in Europe and has yet to be released in Japan or the U.S.

Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. is now planning to release a second set of games, EyeToy: Groove, for the device next month, which will have players move to the beat (instead of just your feet like Dance Dance Revolution). Relying on body movement instead of just fingers, the EyeToy has become massively popular due to its mainstream appeal.
