How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Joystiq says:

The PlayStation Eye delivers on expectations in terms of features and capture quality ... with a smoother frame rate and slightly crisper on-screen image, as well as a nice auto-focus capability that does a reasonable job at keeping up with what's going on in front of it.
