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.
