See how Augmented Reality on PlayStation Vita brings gaming into your world.
Really have to ask why this was never explored on the PS3 past that card game.
Yeah, this is something so beyond amazing I don't even know what to say. Would work great on PS3 but at the same time this is on the go anywhere, every where. You could play soccer on your lunch tray at school, or fighter a monk and a ninja on top of a birthday cake. Hell pretty much the possibilties are endless and the fact you can take them outside on a portable is amazing. The SmartAR technology is amazing and Sony has something really phenomenal here. This is a link to more AR using Vita: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
And my point is that if the tech had been further developed from when it was first introduced, devs would be more familiar and do more with it now.
EyePet uses this as well but i don't think you can really do much with it for a console. Vita will definetly be much more suited towards this concept since it's a device on the go as opposed to one where you sit down and expect to be playing for a long period of time. Next stop real-life holograms.
Ok, I am not the type of person who likes 'augmented reality' games, and I really don't like motion tracked games. Hence why I don't have the Wii, Kinect or Move. But, this blew my mind. =| I mean, the fact that you can still PLAY the game after placing the cards down, is just so.. amazing! LOL I just wish they weren't all different games :( Wanted one huge pack full of all of those games!! But still, I really can't wait for the VITA :(
Probably because the penetration rate for the PSEye is relatively low, whereas every vita has two cameras.
***Really have to ask why this was never explored on the PS3 past that card game.*** Because the camera was not intended to be moved, therefore the 'arena' was a set space within the camera's field of view. PSVita allows for rapid adjustment of the arena.
Man, this was pretty cool.
I mean how could anyone not think this is cool? Just imagine carrying a soccer field where ever you go with just a few cards and a VITA. Or the puzzles you can make. That laser bouncing they showed at the beginning. That could make some awesome puzzles. Or imagine a table top strategy game using soldiers or tanks or mechs. They could even give casual games a run for their money. Just imagine growing virtual plants or raising virtual creatures and actually being able to physically interact with them. Could throw Pokemon for a loop.
i thought the vita can do AR without the cards, or was i mistaken ?
it can but its more accurate with the cards
this shits on 3DS's augmented reality!!!
Please give the poor 3DS a break. I think we all know by now that the 3DS can't handle Sony's AR tech because the hardware isn't powerful enough to do it. There's really no need to shove it Nintendo fans faces. Forgot to mention that Sony has a lot more experience with AR than Nintendo which is why it's more advanced. XperiaRay
I really like that Portal, Tower Defense, laser idea could be alot of fun
Good if your under 10.
intersting but I doubt this will go beyond gimmick.
The lasers and football games look sick.
looks great, but I still have my doubts... I feel its better suited for creating great screen shots or youtube videos, but to play a game? I personally cannot see myself pointing at a table constantly just to play a game. Im a fidgety bastard and need to move around adjusting myself constantly... it appears that would not be best suited for AR games.
