Videogamer: EyePet Review

Sony's EyePet is more or less a direct descendent of all those Catz and Dogz games (or should that be gamez?) that surfaced in the mid nineties. Both series were massively popular with gamers who were either unable or unwilling to deal with the expense, responsibility or omnipresent faeces that accompanies real-world pet ownership. In essence, the player used their mouse to interact with a cartoon mutt or feline as they pranced around their computer screen. You fed the animal, groomed it, and teased it with toys.

Is too cute to pass up. It may actually get my wife off the Wii and onto the PS3.

So you actually want more competition for your PS3? If she keeps off the PS3 it means more play time for you

Do you REALLY want your wifey all over your ps3 instead of the Wii? That's gonna really cut into your gaming time.

If I had kids I would definitely pick this up for them. Like most of Sony's first-party games, it just needs to be marketed correctly.

Get it on Regis and Kelly. Or maybe Oprah. It needs to be somewhere that moms across the country will see it and say "I gotta get this for my kid(s)."

In future, when you see Eurogamer give a PS3 exclusive a rating, the general rule of thumb is to add 2-2.5 more points and you'll get the real proper rating... uhm, Eurogamer gave Killzone 2 a 9.. so Killzone 2 is actually an 11/10? \0/ lmao.

I have two PS3's. Problem is the one in the family room is neglected in favor of the Wii whereas the one in my bedroom is used constantly because of me.

The review have to be made by a kid, not from a grown up man

It would be a 10/10 always if reviewed by a kid.

If they advertise this right, the ps3 is going to have a nice Christmas.

According to the Eurogamer review, you have to position the PSEye at knee height pointing down. I assumed this since I first heard about EyePet. The problem for me is, I don't have a coffee table. I have a SumoSac for my gaming chair in the living room and I just put my beer on the floor when I'm gaming... no table. I want EyePet, however I'm not sure where the heck I'm going to position the PSEye at knee height. Maybe I could get a small crate to use as an end table/PSEye platform....
