EyePet is Available for PS3 in Fall with PlayStation Move Support
Sony's Product Marketing Manager Erin English has revealed that EyePet will finally be available for PS3 in North America this Fall with PlayStation Move support!
To quote: Calling all EyePet fans! I'm here to deliver some great news! Some of you may be familiar with EyePet and have had the chance to play with it at various events last year.
Well, we made some changes to the game and I am pleased to announce that EyePet is officially back on the calendar, and better than before.
Available this Fall, the new version of EyePet will come complete with PlayStation Move support! Instead of using the EyePet Magic Card, players will now be able to interact with their new furry friend using the more intuitive and easy-to-hold PlayStation Move.
The PlayStation Move motion controller can be used in many ways throughout the game. For example, you can engage in a variety of pet care activities such as feeding, washing and styling. With the styling feature, you'll be able to completely customize your pet such as modifying fur length, color and pattern, as well as outfitting your pet with over 250 unique costumes.
You can also use the motion controller to play various games with your pet. Namely, it allows toys to appear magically in your hands. For example, it could be a bubble wand, a fish net or a trampoline. Other games include bowling, tennis, treadmill and snap.
One of the coolest features of EyePet is the drawing feature where you can utilize the motion controller to create drawings on screen that will turn into 3D objects for your pet to play with.
EyePet brings a whole world of imagination out of the TV and into your living room.
As one of PlayStation's newest offerings, EyePet allows players to have all the fun of owning a pet without the mess! Featuring next-generation augmented reality, EyePet is the first digital pet for the PS3, and is the perfect addition for any family! So isn't it time you welcomed an EyePet into your life?
(...) Now to see it's going to use the Move makes me giddy like a little school girl
That makes you sound like a little girl ... Just Kidding.
I don't know what does that animal have, that my little cousin hasn't stop asking: "When is that game coming out?". I find this kind of game really good to play in family. I'll wait and see how the "Move" is really used and if it's worth to buy.
I'm still thinking that the "paper to 3D" drawing is a very cool feature!
