EyePet, a virtual pet for your living room, or in my case, my bedroom. Yes, I game in my bedroom. Bite me. Already out for the PlayStation 3 in Europe (the game has been pushed back to 2010 in the US) EyePet brings a monkey-stroke-dog-stroke...the little bastard is liking this too much...into your life.
When I was initially given my EyePet, by a strange over-enthusiastic American scientist (implying that he'd moulded the poor little thing in his lab, like Ripley's resurrection in the fourth Alien film) my love and hate relationship started with the sodding blighter."
