Virtual Pets Arriving on Xbox 360 tomorrow… what did we do to deserve this?

52 second read


Have Microsoft lost their mind? Who sits in a meeting and brings up the recommendation to bring virtual pets to a gaming console and actually has that suggestion agreed to.

I know we don’t have to buy them and it’s all about free will and all that but come on… If they are going to allow people to walk around with miniature dogs in their handbags then at least allow me to walk around with an AK-47 and interact with afore mentioned miniature dogs.

If you have 240 points and want to show the rest of the Xbox nation that you are the biggest (and weirdest) animal lover around then feel free to pick yourself up a virtual pet tomorrow.

Your options are on the following

  • Large Dog
  • Pug Dog
  • Dog in a Bag (don’t you dare)
  • Cat
  • Siamese Cat
  • Long Haired Cat
  • Goldfish
  • Guinea Pig
  • Pony
  • Monkey
  • Bird
  • Snake

    I’m sure there will be a lot of angry people in Asia, ordering the “dog in a bag” and not quite getting what they wanted.

    MS is truly scrapping the barrel, but the real irony is that this will be incredibly popular, and before you can say “Bill Gates is in my wallet” they’ll be releasing pet accessories at 160MS points a pop.

    It’s time to get of the train lads… :sick:

    What’s worse is that it’s cheaper to buy a real goldfish rather than a Avatar virtual fish one :dizzy:

      Ah, but your real goldfish can die, this is an investment in the future, virtual goldfish are practically immortal 😛

        practically immortal… if it weren’t for that pesky rrod, virtual pets would rule the world. :w00t:

          Exactly, but has anyone bought one of these things yet? I’m just curious whether they also disappear into the ether (like the props) once your avatar flicks his wrists, or do they just sit on the dashboard for all eternity, hoping that you’d be kind enough to buy them a pet accessory for 300mp?

          MS should just bring out the xbox live version of Home, so that my avatar can walk around in shorts in his small unfurnished little flat, with evil intend of torturing his free chocobo pet.

    Can you buy lots of cats and then stop talking to anyone and never leave your home and die a lonely death?
