Sony Computer Entertainment America has confirmed today that they will release EyeToy: Groove in North America. Already available in Europe (and enjoying a great deal of success there, apparently), EyeToy: Groove is so far only the second game that utilizes the proprietary EyeToy camera for the PlayStation 2. The first was EyeToy: Play, naturally.
"EyeToy: Groove, exclusive to the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system, is the first interactive videogame that enables players to dance in time with one of the 28 licensed songs, from such artists as Elvis, Madonna, Jessica Simpson, Jamiroquai, and Fatboy Slim, with no controller or dance pad necessary. Developed by Sony Computer Entertainment London Studio, EyeToy: Groove is scheduled for release in Spring 2004 and will be available at an SRP of $49.99 with the EyeToy USB camera or $29.99 without.
"We are pleased to announce the second title in the EyeToy family so soon after the highly successful EyeToy: Play launch," said Ami Blaire, director, product marketing, Sony Computer Entertainment America. "The interest and success of the EyeToy technology proves that consumers are looking for an active alternative to traditional forms of entertainment, and EyeToy: Groove is just another step in making the world of interactive entertainment a reality.""
