EyePet™ returns to PlayStation®3…and this time he’s got company

For Immediate Release

8th April, London:  Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) is pleased to announce that everyone’s favourite cheeky pet is coming back to PlayStation®3 (PS3™) in EyePet™&Friends.  EyePet is the virtual friend who comes alive in your living room using the power of PS3, the PlayStation®Move motion controller, the PlayStation®Eye camera… and you.  In this brand new escapade you can now raise two pets at the same time for double the trouble.

EyePets are cheeky and fun; always ready to play and often getting into a mischief. One thing they won’t do is make a mess. Using two PlayStation Move motion controllers and the PlayStation Eye Camera, two EyePets can share your living space and play together and with each player on the same screen for all the family to enjoy.

Of course, being a pet owner comes with responsibilities and each EyePet needs care and attention. Using their PlayStation®Move controllers, kids will be responsible for nurturing, training and playing with their pets to keep them happy and healthy. With EyePet and Friends, everyday is full of fun, children can dress, groom, and love their pets, customise their toys and watch them play together.  Kids and EyePets can interact together in a variety of ways from stroking and tickling them with their hands to selecting toys and games for their pets with the PlayStation Move motion controller.  Watch the two EyePets have a shower or play with toys– all brought to life with PlayStation Move.  Get creative with your EyePet by visiting the Creativity Centre where you can make tons of new toys, funky outfits and customise just about anything in the game.

Making life great for your pets is not only rewarding but also earns rewards.   The family and their friends will keep coming back for more as they unlock new toys, games and things to do.  Life with an EyePet is never dull; and they are always keen to get online and show-off their achievements with their friends in the all new, EyePet online community.  If you think you have space for two new friends in your home then get ready for the arrival of EyePet&Friends later this year.  Find out more at eu.playstation.com
