The PlayStation 3 may not be the most familyfriendly console on the market, but this innovative title is definitely one for the kids. Taking the concept of virtual pets a step further, EyePet uses the PlayStation Eye webcam (which can be brought bundled with the game) to superimpose an impossibly cute critter onto a live feed of your living room. As a result, you can interact with your pet using hand gestures as it scampers around you, and once the initial novelty has worn off there are a series of tasks you and your new friend can complete.
