EYE PET my review - first day

27 Replies 2,694 Views Created 30-10-2009

Ok so i got the eye pet for my GF, i thought it would be a simple case of plug n play, but after 10 mins of trying to get the camera right where the eye pet isnt running over your body.. still havent achieved this, 

The tutoral at the start says put the camera at knee hight and facing all the way down, how high is knee height, i am 6,6 my GF is 5,6 but then kids are even smaller so how high does it have to be, when mine is at my GF knee height and facing down you need to be so close to the bravia its blinding and the reflection from the tv destroys the image quality.

 

as for the  image, do not expect a crisp picture like in the trailers, the ps eye is of poor resolution and is grainy... they pet itself is great but the image of yourself on the screen leaves much to be desired, i now have 2 of these crappy lil cameras as i bought one when they first came out and could not buy the pet standalone for some unknown reason..

 

My GF got tired of the pet not responding to her hand movements on the screen, i thought it was her but also found the pet not respopnsive as it should be, it was very hard to crack the egg as well, you need to move it from side to side but it was just unresponsive and moving in different dirrections to the hand movements. i have played all the other ps eye games and found them more responsive...

 

i know why they are delaying the release in the us because with the motion controll you wont need to use the magic card hwat needs to stay facing the screen at ALL TIMES, a change in the angle and the on screen toy / tool disapears. i thought this would have bee much better. instead of a card a 3d object should be more visable to the camera. 

 

i will go home this afternoon and try to get the lighting, camera angle correct but it shouldnt be that hard...i will sort it out over the weekend and see if it gets easier more enjoyable........

Well all is good, no sore back and no sitting on the floor, cuz it works fine on my coffee table, should try it people !!

 

Any way the game is alright, it can be a bit fiddly at times, especially holding a drawing up to the camera, it can be very unresponsive, and a real pain to align it perfectly. One thing that sort of gets me is the "lack of depth".......no matter if you move your hand closer or further back from your pet/camera, you can never actually "touch" him, your hand is always behind your pet.

 

Anyway, there will probably some patches over time to give the little annoyances a tweak :smileyvery-happy: 


Thats good to hear about coffee table coz I'm sick to death of laying on floor and straining my neck

I think you have to do a mixture of things, for example the first task on day 3 is drawing (i think) and its not locked, you have to go to the drawing menu to do the drawings, same with the singing task. You also have to feed and clean your pet, as well as do the pet reports in pet health. You also have to have done a certain amount of tasks to progress, and need at least a bronze medal for each

 

What i do is........ do the days challenges, give him a feed ( he'll pull out his bowl when hungry anyway, and you have to feed him till he's full) clean, change of clothes and do a pet report. then i might do some drawings, or sing.......just do a mixture. I also noticed you can't do too much in one day, cuz i played with him heaps one day and a message came up basicly saying "give your pet a rest"
