Remind yourself of Wonderbook with these derpy pictures

Wonderbook made such a splash at E3 that Sony has released a batch of screenshots from the trade show ... in July. For those who have forgotten (or tried to), Wonderbook is Sony's way of making books more of a hassle to read ...

EyeToy Kama Sutra game could have been a reality

I'm always surprised by the lack of porn on modern consoles, especially with all the, err, "input possibilities" that motion controls give the user. It's not for a lack of trying though, if Sony Computer Entertainment executi...

GDC 10: Using the Move to interact with EyePet

While Europe got its furry little EyePet last year (and we even reviewed it), the North American version was hit with a delay just prior to its fall release. When I noticed that retailers were listing the PlayStation 3 virtua...

Get a cat: EyePet delayed until 2010?

Poor EyePet. When we had a chance to meet Sony's digital animal-monster-thing at Penny Arcade Expo, Sony had told us it would be available this holiday. We cleared off our coffee table, prepared a bed, and nixed the idea...

EyePet creeping everybody out on November 17 photo
EyePet creeping everybody out on November 17
by Jim Sterling

There might be something wrong with the inside of my brain, but I'm actually excited for Sony's creepy-yet-cute EyePet. If you're yet to hear about it, it's a furry little monstrosity that uses the trendy "augmented reality" fad to interact with players via the gift of the PlayStation Eye. People who are just as maladjusted as me will be thrilled to learn that the EyePet has an official release date, and will be terrorizing children and the elderly on November 17.

The EyePet software will set you back $39.99, and that's without the camera. A version bundled with the Eye is $59.99. All in all, this is probably going to be a much bigger incentive to getting a PlayStation Eye than Eye of Judgement ever was. That said, it'll be interesting to see if Sony's current consumer base will be interested in something like this. I certainly am, something tells me I'm not quite like the usual Killzone 2 obsessive. I can't imagine a man who uses the word "Fag" like it was going out of style will be tripping over himself to own an EyePet. 

Still, it's looking like it'll be a great little toy and it's certainly less terrifying than Milo. I personally can't wait.

EyeToy developers diss the Wiimote, Live Vision camera

Nintendo was not the first company to make gamers look like total arseholes via the gift of technology. Before the Wii we had the EyeToy on the PlayStation 2, and its creators are casting a critical eye on their rivals."...

Tori-Emaki screensaver is more fun than most PS3 games

Common reaction to that title above is going to be "Stop bitching about PS3, bleh bleh bleh." Great thing is, since I'm a Games Journalist (also known as: hack), I can bitch about it all I damn please. Snark aside, ...

Eyetoy has 'more potential' than Wiimote?

It would seem that Sony is still hell bent on stealing Nintendo's thunder. Speaking with CVG yesterday, Sony boldly stated that its Eyetoy technology has more potential for motion sensing gaming than the Wii, and it would see...
