EyePet

Recently announced at the Leipzig Game Conference in Germany, Sony showed off its newest virtual buddy. The EyePet works with the camera attachment on the Playstation 3.

We guess that this would be okay for little ones, although unaware parents might wonder why their kids are touching their monitors so much. The virtual critter should become available late 2009.
