PS4 Camera Length

36 replies 2576 views Edited Jul 28, 2013

I am hoping I can reach someone at Sony about this.  But I don't know where to start.

What I need to know since the PS4 camera is going to use a proprietary cable to connect.

It is only going to be 2 meters, which is a bit too short for my setup.

 

Is there any information on what that cable really is? Or a way to extend it?

im pretty sure its going to be more than long enough especially when it would need to be placed on top or below the tv..

That's what I have hoped but everything I have read has said 2 meters which isn't nearly enough.

Its proprietary and not usb. Look at the port on the back. Due to the level of detail, its using a new port.

Why isn't 2 meters enough? Your TV is bigger than that?

The camera can capture footage at any distance of desire.

I'm not sure what some of you are doing or how your entertainment centers are set up, but 2 meters (about 6 feet) should be plenty of length to reach the PS4 from either above or below the TV.  I have the PS3 camera (which uses a 6 foot usb cable) mounted on top of my wall-mounted 42" Vizio (so the camera is about 5-1/2 feet off the floor), and the cable has plenty of length to reach the PS3, which is sitting on a shelf about a foot from the floor in my TV stand, and that's with feeding the cable through a hole in the back of the TV stand, and around to the front of the PS3.

 

At any rate, I would assume that since the PS4 camera uses a proprietary connection, Sony will make an extension cable available for those that need it.
