In a few week’s time, lucky Xbox 360 owners can get their paws on ‘Fantastic Pets’ which uses augmented reality to give you – yes, you – your very own virtual pet.
You can teach them tricks (a bit like Eyepet), stroke them (a bit like Eyepet), play games (a bit like Eyepet) and even given them a refreshing shower whilst they stand on a circular pedestal (a lot like Eyepet).
Whilst the Sony furball simulator had a single design of pet, ‘Fantastic Pets’ has a multitude of virtual beasties. You can now own a flying unicorn, a robot cat or a spotted husky pup. How about a six legged lizard with the face of Fergie from The Black Eyed Peas? All of these are possible in Fantastic Pets!
Note: Fergie and her lovely lady lumps have yet to be confirmed.
