The lights are on
While Sony's new pet simulator for Vita shares some, shall
we say, distinct conceptual similarities with Nintendogs, it does appear to
push the formula forward on a number of fronts.
In a new trailer released today, you can see that the game
is a bit more expansive than the bare-bones (get it? dogs love bones!)
Nintendogs games. In addition to the usual playing around with your pet, you'll
be able to go for walks in a number of unique areas like a castle and discover
treasures and other items. The game also uses the Vita's external camera to let
your dog "play" in the real world - a neat little trick.
Oh, and the dogs have voices. Do they ever. To be honest,
even in this trailer, some of them got to be a bit grating, but we'll have to
reserve judgment for now.

wow. i wonder if you'll get one dog per game, and have to buy multiple games.
i came here to laugh at the vita. and remember why i dont own or have a need for one.
...I really hope Sony has got better software lined up for the Vita than this.
They're gonna need a lot more to compete with the 3DS, anyway.
LOL, thanks GI for some comical relief. Wait a tick, it's not April 1st. So this article must be legit. We're all doomed!
Sold, I am now going to buy a Vita just for this fantastic looking title.
I might take a look at this, but those voices are horrible.
