Aibotoys Teaches Aibo Robot Dog to Play Reversi and More
Aibotoys introduces its "Gamepack One" for playing AiboReversi, AiboMemory, Tictaibo and AiboDice on most models of Aibo robot dogs.
Aibotoys (http://www.aibotoys.com) announces today its new game set called "Aibotoys Gamepack One" available simultaneously for the ERS-210/210A, ERS-220/220A, ERS-311/312 and ERS-31L series of Aibo robot dogs from Sony. Aibotoys Gamepack One is a collection of four games for the whole family: AiboReversi, where you can play the Reversi game against Aibo; AiboMemory, where you can exercise your memory by matching similar cards on a board; Tictaibo, the Tic-Tac-Toe game for Aibo and first third-party game available for Aibo; and AiboDice, where Aibo rolls a virtual die for any other game you play. You can play AiboReversi on the game board provided in the game set, or use any Othello(tm) game board you already have. Aibotoys Gamepack One comes with all the necessary accessories and easy to follow instructions. Pictures, contents list and description of Gamepack One will be posted on http://www.aibotoys.com .
