Your Virtual Pet. I thought it was something else, but I guess we're going to be raising 3D virtual pets with the power of the PS3. Trailer time. Using EyeToy, you can interact through the video and the little creature reacts to your gestures in real time. It shows it finishing in your drawings for you, after you've scanned it in, including making a fully functional little car. Now it's playing dress up. Crazy. Actual looks pretty cute, but let's see if the game is actually as awesome as the guitar-filled trailer.

Screens can be found here.

Video soon hopefully.

Okay it got rehosted here.

Release date announced on the PSBlog. DELAYED

I was wondering when sony's R&D would put the drawing-to-in-game-object mechanic to use. seems like it's implemented here. that alone will drive me to buy the game.

It will probably be disc I'm thinking, like Eye of Judgment. However, I can see them offering both.

yeah, if it's in Europe, expect disc, while the US could go either way or both.

If I was going to buy this game, I think that statement just swore me off of the idea... :-&

Good lord, I never thought that I would be excited about getting a virtual pet game #-o. Now I just watched this trailer with my wife and we're both excited to see if this turns out as good as it looks.

Like Rolento said as well, I'm glad to see the drawing aspect of the Eye being utilized. They were showing off that feature since the it first came out.

Cool. The PlayStation Eye needs to be supported more. This looks like a great addition.

I SOOOOO want that. Don't care if it's a DL game, or on disc. Don't care if it's $60 or even $90. That just looks AWESOME!

Hopefully this isn't one of those games that'll take forever and a day to come out. My son would love this thing.

I hope they have more than one type of pet. And maybe make it so you can play with multiple pets at a time and have them interact with eachother and stuff.

I would get this game if I had a PS3.

If I had a PS3 I would totally get this game except I wonder what things you can draw for your pet and also if theres only one kind.

HEH! that's too funny though, "OO MAN LOOk AT HIM!! SCARY!! ONE LOOK IN HIS EYES AND Your STONED!!" LMAO! *scary guy goes home to safely sighs, "it's great to be home". then out of the MACHO MAN status, he finds sanity with playing his cute pet monkey.

This is interesting:

The adorable debut of EyePet at Leipzig Games Convention was quite possibly the biggest surprise of the show. The innovative use of the PlayStation Eye, coupled with one of fthe most adorable creature designs in recent memory, made it one of the most high-profile titles we showcased on our site during the Convention. Although it's still not planned for a release late next year, it benefited from the controversial cancellations of other SCEE games, such as Eight Days and The Getaway.

"Yes, there are so many things that we want to do, more than we can do with the resources. So when London Studio was looking at the early work on EyePet and the prototype of Eight Days, they knew they couldn't do all of them - and there are even more things they're working on at early concept stage," Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida told GI.biz. "So your expertise and ideas are best spent on some titles rather than others."

London Studios is arguably best known for their work on SingStar and other PS2/PS3 Eye games. Their experience in casual games developent will undoubtedly help EyePet. "London Studio is really best-placed for showing how these things can be done, because they've worked on games in that space for many years - they know how consumers are going to react, how to make it accessible and fun."
