Wonderbook - Sony's Big Hope for 2012 and Beyond

"Wonderbook might not be for you, but as PlayStation widen their mark for the PS3′s twilight years, this quirky story-driven tech hopes to attract a new audience to the console. Are you sitting comfortably…?" (BBC: Walking with Dinosaurs, Diggs Nightcrawler, PS3, Sony, Wonderbook: Book of Spells)

I was surprised to see this actually getting decent reviews. At least the "book of spells" :>

Well finally Sony has realized the sort of audience that plays on consoles. Nintendo understood this from the Current gen, which is why Wii is the most successful console of this gen.

Imo Sony needs to invest more into such games. This might be Sonys last hope as they have pretty much lost out on other grounds:

Tvs
Music players
computers
cell phones
Cameras

Hell even in the console business they are pretty much done, Imo Sony needs to shift focus toward the real console audience 5-10 year olds.

I doubt the Wii will be the most successful this gen, it lost steam very very quickly proving that hardcore gamers are long term and casual gamers are short term, that is why the slight directional change from Nintendo, looking to cater for the hardcore gamer. I think the Wii will be surpassed in the next few years.

This could very well be a good game for children. It's just too bad the E3 presentation didn't go over very well.

This game is considered to be a system seller so I'm going to be keeping a keen eye on the reviews from IGN and Gamestop. My theory hasn't been proven wrong yet, but it could all still be just a coincidence.

So far Gamespot have given it an 8. Highest numbered review so far. Thoughts?
GribbleGrunger  +   656d ago
My thoughts are laid out in the comment you responded to... no? I can't find the review so I guess I'll have to wait for it to appear here or on Metacritic. (unless it's in the pending. I'll look)

edit: found it. Thanks for the heads up. Reading it now. Yeah you are right, they give it a good score. Now I'll just wait on IGN.

Yeah, don't think this thing will do very well. Just my gut talking could be wrong.

Either way, I'm sure JK Rowling will make a pretty penny.
