When the first Eye Pet was announced, my daughters were extremely excited. After being delayed over and over, it was finally released as a PS Move compatible game, and filled my home with enjoyment. The major issue at the time seemed to be that my two youngest daughters had to take turns. Well now, with todays announcement of Eye Pet and Friends, it seems like that will no longer be an issue.
In Eye Pet and Friends there will now be the availability of two pets, either both controlled by one player, or each controlled by a separate player. The game is currently scheduled to be released “later this year.”

Eleven years ago Richard Marks joined SONY to help them create the latest and greatest. He soon found himself working on what became the EyeToy. For those of you who know little about the EyeToy it was the “first of its kind to translate your body movements into game controls, map your face onto in-game characters and more”. Here is a video with the Doctor talking about the past, present and future.

A lucky guy at vg247.com got to try out EyePet way before the rest of us. This video shows you what it’s like to first turn on the game, and how to hatch your EyePet. So spoiler alert! I hope this game does really well, obviously it’s targeted towards families/children. Sony needs to advertise this for the upcoming holiday season or I doubt it would sell very well otherwise.
Packaging wise it’s great. But I hope you can buy it without the PlayStation Eye bundled in. That’s one thing that made me stop buying EyeToy games is because it was almost always bundled with a EyeToy camera I didn’t need. Will you be buying this virtual pet for your family?
