  The PlayStation 4 EYE is basically an upgraded model of its predecessor and now is taking a jab at the Xbox’s Kinect in terms of design and features. The EYE “incorporates two high-sensitive cameras that have wide-angle lenses with 85-degree diagonal angle views according to a Sony news release. The camera enables PlayStation 4 EYE to cut out the image of player from background, or to grasp players position in front and behind. “In addition, users will be able to login to their PS4 with face recognition and are capable of using their own body movements or voices to enjoy games more intuitively.”
