How The WonderBook Could Actually Be A Must Buy Peripheral

GP writer Jared discusses how the Wonderbook could potentially be used and what would make it a must buy for gamers. (Culture, PS3, Tech, Wonderbook)

I thought this game had a ton of potential. From what I've seen, Sony's marketing doesn't agree with me.

I wasn't even aware of the fact that it was released until just a few days ago.

In the UK i am suprised at the amount of adverts for this compared to the likes of the Wii U (I would have expected it to be the other way round). I was watching morning rubbish on TV and every break had an advert for Wonderbook or a Sony Playstation advert (which also featured Wonderbook). I think they are marketing this very well (well in the UK they are)

My 9-year old wanted it and I got it on Amazon for $19.99 (50% off list price)! I love Amazon!

Yup, nor did I. Went to pre-order PSABR and I seen it on the shelf.

I ended up buying it (Book and game pack) for my nephews and nieces who always come around, but I have a confession to make, when they left, I had to have a go at it myself.

Although it isn't challenging for core gamers, it is interesting and fun. It's like a dynamic, magical story book with mini games built in and awesome AR tricks that make you chuckle here and there.

Can't wait for Walking with Dinasours. Hope this venture really works out for SOny as it is some of the best PS EYE and Move combo I have seen and I would love to see more of it.

@iamnsuperman

according to your own words,

Adverts during rubbish TV, dosn't sound all that great.

I think Wonderbook is poised to be the next big thing for the younger set. It's a creative way to get kids to read and learn. Coming out the gate with Harry Potter doesn't hurt, and when they get more titles for this it will get even bigger. Sony does market this stuff, just not to us. We all made fun of it back during E3 remember.;)

I know I'm being a dead horse, but the E3 presentation was awful. However, I could see some potential in it.

I have to agree, though it was a horrible position to be in. That poor woman repeated the gesture incorrectly, became flustered, and the more attempts she made, the more incorrect they were. She was stressed out and making the game look horrible.

That said, I've played it and it's fantastic! My kids are loving it.

Beyond gaming...yeah...I actually said that, this peripheral has a huge upside if done correctly. As I watched someone play the game on Twitch TV, I was intrigued by the possibilities that might exist in education. I could imagine a line of science related materials such as interactive labs, space "exploration", etc. It could be used for history lessons that provide interactive environments while telling the story that surrounds the particular event. These lessons could be "scaled" accordingly for age...but extend to all ages. If you gotta study and learn...why not do it on the PS3!?!?
