On my video game shelf is PSP's EyePet, right in between CoD: Black Ops and Medal of Honor. Admittedly, such a quaint game does not belong in the collection of violent things. You will think so too, once you see a cuddly, furry pet running around on your floor, kitchen counter, or keyboard. That's right, thanks to the PSP camera, you can (virtually) imagine having a pet in your own home. Once you lay the included Magic Card (no "Gathering" here...) down anywhere you want, your pet pops up on the card, but without it, your pet is suspended in a bubble indefinitely until you put the card down, so don't lose it. You also need a well-lit area to play in; otherwise, the PSP camera won't recognize the Magic Card. Don't expect to play this game on the road during a night trip. Interacting with the pet is limited. You place an object or your finger on either side of the screen and your pet recognizes it by making noises and looking in that direction. Sadly, that is all there is to it. It's a nice touch to make the pet responsive as if it was real, but the reaction is repetitive and that's as far as it goes. While the pet is cute and cuddly, and all things quaint and loveable, you're stuck with it.
The one true thing that can be said for both the PlayStation 3 and PSP versions of Sony's EyePet is that it's cute. It's hard to remain aloof in front of its furry, wide-eyed wonderment as it paces around the screen as helpless and beseeching as a puppy in a pet store window. Sadly, the feeling doesn't stick around for long in the PSP incarnation of the game, whose requirements for play are so complex that it becomes nearly impossible to enjoy the experience. The game feels out of its element--the immersive aspects of the virtual pet genre are nowhere to be found, replaced by painfully slow loading times and a shortage of content, turning what should have been a fun and immersive day out into a sluggish and chiropractically unsafe venture. The game comes bundled with a PSP camera, which you must attach and use in conjunction with a magic card, which is a rectangular-shaped plastic card that's about the same size as the PSP itself. Here's the catch: in order for the game to work, the PSP camera must have an unobstructed view of this card on a flat surface at all times. This immediately eliminates a wide variety of locations where you might play with a PSP, such as on public transport, in the supermarket queues, or in the bathroom.
