Yes! I used to have an older Sony AIBO and although many would claim it was a waste of $800, I thought it was the coolest thing since Led Zeppelin. It could do a bunch of nutty stuff that was extremely enjoyable while intoxicated (it did headstands for crying out loud).
Now word is that Sony is working on a new version of the previously cancelled robodog. Says Sony’s Masaya Matsuura:
“The engineers behind the Aibo are doing the PS3. We are talking about making something like the new Aibo .”
The new device could possibly connect to the PS3 to enhance gameplay. For now, unless you work over at Sony Japan, we’ll have to wait for more information to leak out.
