The EyeToy is a color digital camera device, similar to a webcam, for the PlayStation 2 (PS2). The technology uses computer vision and gesture recognition to process videos and images taken by the camera. This allows players to interact with games using motion, color detection and also sound, through its built-in microphone.

The motion sensitive camera films you as you stand in front of your TV, putting your image on screen in the middle of the action. Then you use your arms, legs, head, bottom… in fact any part of your body to play the games. EyeToy is an entirely unique party gaming experience for people of all ages. Incorporating a unique USB camera that utilizes motion-tracking technology, gamers instantly become the main character in their own game as interactive entertainment is taken to a new level.

The Following games are directly controlled with the EyeToy device!

There has been a long line of PlayStation Controllers over the past 20 years. While we can’t cover each minor change, we will cover the major updates. We can provide you with any controller you need to play your favorite games with. And we can find any specialized revision to help complete your collection!

The first controller was the simple iconic controller that is so familiar to everyone. It was based on the button configuration of the Super Nintendo controller, with a better grip.

Sony soon added two analog sticks to the basic controller and called it the Dual Analog controller. There are three modes of operation: Digital, which disables the Analog sticks, Analog (as also found on DualShock/DualShock 2 controllers) and a unique Analog Flightstick mode that is not available on the DualShock or DualShock 2. The Dual-Analog controller is highly sought after by collectors who like the Ridged Buttons, longer grip, and there is no distraction from the dual shock vibrations of newer controllers. The Dual Analog was only made for a short period of time, and is becoming quite hard to find.

Sony soon added a vibration feedback feature, and called the new controller the DualShock. There are versions for the PS1, PS2, PS3, and PS4. The DualShock Analog Controller, a controller capable of providing vibration feedback, was based on the on-screen action of the game (if the game supports it), as well as analog input through two analog sticks. The controller’s name derives from its use of two (dual) vibration motors (shock). These motors are housed within the handles of the controller, with the left one being larger and more powerful than the one on the right, so as to allow for varying levels of vibration.

With the release of the PlayStation Two (PS2) console, Sony released a new DualShock 2 controller. The new controller is basically the same as the DualShock, with a few cosmetic changes. The buttons and sticks were noticeably stiffer, giving smoother control of the game.

All controllers are basically forward, and backward compatible with each other. Any unused buttons are simply ignored by the game. So pick your favorite(s) for you collection!

The PlayStation GunCon Controller (also known as the G-Con in Europe) is a family of gun peripherals designed by Namco for the PlayStation consoles. The original controllers used traditional light gun technology, while newer controllers use LED tracking technology.

Basically the GunCon 1 is designed for the PS1, the GunCon 2 for PS2, and GunCon 3 for the PS3. (Although there is ‘some‘ compatibility between models, it is best to get the right gun for your machine)

The GunCon series of light-guns replaced the earlier “Justifier/HyperBlaster” guns which supported a limited list of games (but we also offer the Justifier/HyperBlaster to play the other games!)

Below is a list of supported games and the required controller:

The PlayStation Link Cable (SCPH-1040) is a peripheral cable for the PlayStation console.  Using the serial I/O port found on the back of most PlayStation models, it allows two consoles to be connected in order to play multi-player games on separate consoles.Think of it as a two system LAN (Local Area Network).

The main advantage to using the cable is that a split-screen wouldn’t be necessary for multi-player games. This increases each player’s screen size and potentially increases game performance (as only one view has to be rendered per console). Another advantage is that the players can hide their screens, which can’t be done when playing on a split-screen!

The cable is a 12-pin inline serial cable that plugs directly into the back of the PlayStation console and was a fully supported Sony accessory for the market life of the console. Because it was designed for original PlayStation models, it may not be compatible with the redesigned slim PSone or PlayStation’s newer successors (PS-2,3,4).

The use of this cable requires two PlayStation consoles, two monitors, and two copies of the game being played (with the exception of Armored Core Master of Arena, C&C Red Alert and C&C Retaliation, which required only one copy since the games already include two discs).

List of Games known to be compatible with the PlayStation Link Cable:
