Innovative EyePet PS3 Announced For PAL Territories

Okay everyone, all at once, go: "aaaawwww..."

During Sony's press conference yesterday at the Leipzig Games Convention, SCEE announced EyePet for all PAL regions. According to the official press release, these cute, furry little creatures "won't make a mess on the floor or claw at your curtains." This is the definitive virtual pet that responds to everything you do as you sit before the video screen with your handy PlayStation Eye. The creature, a "loveable, simian-like pet," exists on your screen and operates on what Sony is calling "Augmented Reality." See, the pet won't just react to you; it's "fully aware of people in the room and will interact" with them, as well as other things in the immediate environment. Give it something to play with and if it doesn't recognize the object immediately, it'll toy around with it until it does. Heck, you can even playfully tickle your virtual pet.

You can customize your pet almost entirely, and that includes facial expressions, so perhaps the possibilities are limitless. EyePet launches later on next year, and as far as we know, there hasn't been an announcement concerning any other territories. But hey, don't you want these fuzzy virtual pets to come to North America?

over all it looks like an enjoyable title. the video looks awesome and maybe even more innovative than LBP when it comes to this genre. Now i know y they scrapped the AIBO project a few years back. With this they can do the same thing without going to the trouble of building a mechanical dog. Lets hope they get it right this time around. The AIBO was just too dumb at times, for a machine that cost nearly 2000$

okay, i do want that. but it seems that all the eye games that i've gotten in the past just sit there. but this one might be better if it can really do what those videos says it can do. plus i won't have to pay extra on my rent just cuz i got a pet!!!

I really wish Sony would incorporate stuff like this into the XMB. at least some kind of interactive background. But think about it, your pet messing with the XMB icons? Most people would die from the cuteness factor.

--going to ps blog to drop my suggestions....

EDIT: This would be cool too:

Whatever happened to that cool thing they were doing with the EyeToy? Where they were scanning the tank and putting it into a game.
