Just in case you didnt realise this........

If you're playing a multiplayer game with the Great Unwashed and you haven't bothered with the earpiece, think again!!! The camera acts as the default comms and is ALWAYS on!! Theres no way to mute it other than to plug in the earpiece and then use the mute switch.

And yes I did find this out the hard way:oops:

What is the camera used for anyway? You don't actually need one to play games do you?

Not yet, You can use it in while your live streaming, I've used it a couple of times to take screen shots just shout "playstation>Screenshot" and it works pretty well.

You could unplug it until you need it. An old skool solution I know ;).

Theres a patch incoming at some point so you can mute the camera. Thing is I didnt buy the camera just to leave it unplugged. Its no biggie.

The live stream works really really well. Shame it was all a bit of a disaster for me yesterday. Courier turned up at 4, psn sign in problems, and then it took ages to download all the updates. Oh well, its all sorted now.
