This PS3 augmented reality game at ISMAR had the attention of many people waiting to try out this game. With the use of the PlayStation Eye camera, players are able to interact with the virtual pet by placing objects in its environment. What you can expect a real-life pet to do, this one can do the same. A player can interact with the virtual animal by petting it, tickling it as well as giving it a shower and drying him up. One of the most interesting games was the one in which the pet draws the simple 2D drawing of a car and becomes a virtual 3D object drivable by the player. The pet effectively reacts to the player’s interaction by motion and/or sound.
The game is already available in Europe, but its US release has been delayed and will be on sale within the first half of 2010. Even though this AR game is mostly for casual gamers, this was a very entertaining experience nonetheless. I’m glad to see Sony participating in the augmented reality arena.
