PlayStation Move brings to the gamers the possibility to play in Augmented Reality. EyePet is a game where you interact with a small monkey (mixed with cat and dog characteristics, its species doesn’t exist) in several ways. The game looks awesome. The game will also support 3D on 3D enabled TVs. The PSP version of EyePet is scheduled for release in October 2010.
EyePet uses the camera to allow a virtual pet to interact with people and objects in the real world. Using augmented reality, the simian, gremlin-like creature appears to be aware of its environment and surroundings and reacts to them accordingly. The player can place objects in front of the animal and the game will interpret what the object is and respond to it.
