It's real, folks. We first learned of EyePet over a year ago, and approached it with both excitement and skepticism. When we had a chance to see EyePet running on PS3 live, we were blown away at how what we originally thought was a concept video had been completely real all along.
For those not in the know, EyePet is a virtual pet simulator that takes advantage of the PlayStation Eye. With the addition of a "magic card," players will be able to play with a virtual monkey that lives in augmented reality. The television will display what the PlayStation Eye sees: you, and your body. Your on-screen pet will then be able to respond to all your actions. You'll be able to virtually pet the creature on the head, grab a bowl of food and feed it, and play a variety of mini-games. The tactile sensation of owning a pet will be gone, but in its stead will be an unworldly adorable creature that uses tech that feels like it's from the future.
Perhaps it's best summed up with video, as EyePet truly needs to be seen to be understood. You can do so many things with the critter, and his incredibly detailed and lifelike animation makes this "game" all the more believable. For example, you can try sweeping your arm across the bottom of your TV view, and the pet will jump over your arm. When your pet goes to sleep, you can clap loudly and get it to wake up ... (although it might be grumpy!)

Fear not Europeans, Square Enix and Sony haven't let you down. Eurogamer reports that Final Fantasy VII will be available on the European store later today, just two days after its release in America. There's no indication of a price, or of why SCEE didn't take advantage of their fancy new blog to let us know that it was coming, but we won't hold that against them. You'll be able to introduce your PS3 and PSP to a classic RPG of yesteryear, today. They won't know what hit them.
This bodes well for future high-profile PS1 title releases to take place simultaneously in Europe and the US. We didn't expect this to happen at all, but we hope SCEE keeps it up.

Star Trek is coming to Home in Europe, in much the same way that Watchmen did. That means costumes, an in-Home Q&A session with two of the movie's stars and its director, as well as various in-Home events for everyone to attend. On April 18 the central screen of the Home Theater will show a special welcome video from director J.J. Abrams and the latest trailer for the movie itself will also be viewable.
Costumes will appear in the Threads store on April 23. These include Star Trek branded t-shirts and various colored Starfleet uniforms. Details of a Star Trek in-Home Avatar contest and Star Trek in-Home party will also be revealed then. The director/actor Q&A will take place on Monday April 20 at 4pm GMT, with the event being streamed live.
If you have a burning question for J.J Abrams, Chris Pine (Kirk) or Zachary Quinto, questions will be picked from Twitter, UStream and CoverItLive. Check out the stream live for yourself at the official Star Trek Home website.
