EyePet is the sort of thing that people like Michael Vick should have been exposed to before. Take your virtual pet, beat his ass immensely without realistically having to worry about digging hiding spots in your backyard, move on with your life, and go back to abusing the chinchilla-human crossbreed thingy that is your pet whenever you’re in need of abusing it because your life is as worthless as Carrot Top’s. Of course, EyePet is aimed at being much friendlier than that. Take your cute little Gizmo (from the move Gremlins) looking thing and play with it as you would your hamster, or whatever the hell pet you or your kid adores. The best part is that there’s no feeding or cleaning up after these hairy bastards.
Sony has announced the European price for EyePet. The game, bundled with a camera, will be available for a considerable €49.99 (about $70) in Europe. Although it has been established that the North American version of this cuddly title will be arriving this year, pricing has yet to be mentioned. Am I going to get it? Yep. Am I going to love and care for my little whatever the hell it is? Yep. Will I occasionally mistreat it because if I were to physically abuse an animal in real life I’d be forced to drop the soap in the slammer? Bet your sweet ass I will. I just pray, for it’s sake, that it doesn’t use the potty. Because if that little fraking bastard virtually pisses on my floor, and Sony doesn’t give me a weening pad, I’m going to mistreat that thing like I did my annoying Tamagotchi.
