EyePet Available this Fall with PlayStation Move Support!

Erin English's Avatar Posted by Erin English on Mar 11, 2010 // Product Marketing Manager

Calling all EyePet fans! I’m here to deliver some great news! Some of you may be familiar with EyePet and have had the chance to play with it at various events last year. Well, we made some changes to the game and I am pleased to announce that EyePet is officially back on the calendar, and better than before. Available this Fall, the new version of EyePet will come complete with PlayStation Move support! Instead of using the EyePet Magic Card, players will now be able to interact with their new furry friend using the more intuitive and easy-to-hold PlayStation Move.

The PlayStation Move motion controller can be used in many ways throughout the game. For example, you can engage in a variety of pet care activities such as feeding, washing and styling. With the styling feature, you’ll be able to completely customize your pet such as modifying fur length, color and pattern, as well as outfitting your pet with over 250 unique costumes.

You can also use the motion controller to play various games with your pet. Namely, it allows toys to appear magically in your hands. For example, it could be a bubble wand, a fish net or a trampoline. Other games include bowling, tennis, treadmill and snap.

One of the coolest features of EyePet is the drawing feature where you can utilize the motion controller to create drawings on screen that will turn into 3D objects for your pet to play with.

As one of PlayStation’s newest offerings, EyePet allows players to have all the fun of owning a pet without the mess! Featuring next-generation augmented reality, EyePet is the first digital pet for the PS3, and is the perfect addition for any family! So isn’t it time you welcomed an EyePet into your life?

2 things:

1- EyePet is lovely, my girls love it!
2- Are we Europeans getting a patch for Move?

Honestly, I understand why you held the release of the game in the US until Move was out, that’s exactly what the game needs.

I was really impressed by how well the Magic card works and how object’s size vary depending if you are close or far from the camera.

However, the fact that you need to alwasy point the front of the card to the camera can be difficult for small kids, they move the card as the 3D objec they see on TV and that just doesn’t work…until now when Move is out ;)

Please! answer, are we Europeans getting a patch? I’m getting move regardless

ps. EyePet has given many hours of fun to my girls so there’s no way I’m upset for the game getting Move support in the US or being bundled with it :)

I have a question,this video is supposed to show how you will interact with your eye pet using the “Move”,but what about that part where all the players are rubbing their hands together? and then the kid hitting the ground with both hands? does this mean the PS eye can track hand movement without the need of the controller?

    With some of the activities you are using hand movements to interact with the pet (like rubbing your hands together to create soap bubbles to wash your pet), while other activities require you to use the Move controller (like the drawing and magic toy activities)

Hey does the new controller come with the game for free or will it be more for the game and controller or do you have to buy it separately?

It tracks hand movements as well.
My daughter loves this game, the only time she has a problem is when an action requires her to keep the topside of the card facing the camera while doing something. It looks like the “move” will be an improvement over the card.

    The game will be sold as a bundle with the PS Eye and Move, and as a standalone (just game)

I’m might get this since my niece and nephews are over here allot they would probably like it

So this version will come with the Move cotroller, according to an earlier response here. Question: what other games coming out this fall will come with the controller? Is this the “comes with a game” game that was mentioned yesterday, coming with every Move? Or is it merely one of the options, with other sets available that come with different games? Is it going to be possible to get this game WITHOUT buying the Move along with it? Will the Move starter kits come with a disc that includes new firmware to make the controller usable with the console? Will SOCOM 4 come with a package that includes the Move (and also be available standalone)? Sorry for the million questions, but this stuff is important!

The video quality of the Eye is dramatically worse than shown here.

As mentioned above, you’d need studio lighting to get the image on the screen to appear even close to the levels displayed.
