Diggs and Walking with Dinosaurs, really got me interested in Wonderbook, it looked really good.

Nice diverse bunch of games on show overall.

If marketed right this will sell a lot during holidays. Would love to try diggs night crawler with my little nephew. Think he will enjoy it. It was a better showing than the one at e3 that's for sure.

I don't think I'll ever be happy to see Wonderbook at a press conference... even if dinosaurs are awesome.

You'll have to admit, it's a lot less cringeworthy than that poor showing at E3. I guess gamescom learned their lesson and actually showcased them on trailers instead.
PirateThom  +   1055d ago
It was, true. I just think it kind of kills their momentum a bit. I don't think it's a horrible idea, but it's just the wrong place to show it off.

I know as soon as that guy came on with Wonderbook in the background I was like

"Oh my god, not this again"

Usualy Sony are good with learning from their mistakes...it didn't drag too much but it was something where I was like

"Yeah...thats nice, now shoo...shoo...get off the stage"

Same goes for the EA Sports bit which COULD of been shown off at the EA conference ¬¬

Surprisingly good showing for Wonderbook. Good promise for the future of a market that Sony needs to tap, whether core gamers like to hear it or not. Still unsure how it will sell, but that depends on Sony

I think its a great that kids titles such as these are getting so much attention. Heck i might even play Diggs that looked pretty dang cool if you ask me.

I was actually impressed with wonder book. They showed it off far better than they did at e3. Huge potential if marketed to the right audience.

it wasnt as bad as i thought it would be thats for sure. if this is decently priced i wouldnt mind checking out the dinosaur one

Diggs nightcrawler looked pretty damn sweet.

I actually think Wonderbook is cool. Don't understand all the hate for it.

I wonder how many languages they will support. I can't see it as a holiday hit if it's only in English.

Sony is reaching out to everyone including kids. While this may not be for me, you have to admit Wonderbook is truly something innovative. It really doesn't deserve all the hate it gets when this isn't meant for core gamers.
garos82  +   1055d ago
agree. but i think the only hate it gets is from "hardcore" gamers who watch e3 thinking the whole show is designed only for their pleasure.it was certainly something id prefer to see slight less of at e3 but it is impressive nonetheless for children
BlaqMagiq24  +   1055d ago
True they did show a little too much at E3 but impressive nonetheless.

Since disney is signed on, I wonder if they'll do stuff with the Marvel franchises.

A wonderbook game that is a marvel comic with a comix zone kinda feel to it?

They need to do some sort of Necronomicon wonderbook game.
L-a-i-n  +   1055d ago
I have never understood the Wonderbook hate it is not geared for hardcore gaming people just expect every game to be core related there are other gamers out there beside that. Wonderbook is a great edition to the kind friendly area I wish it a lot of luck and Diggs looks awesome.

I think it had more to do with the poor gameplay at E3. The kids playing it fumbled around and it took them awhile to get anything accomplished. The game looked sloppy. :/
