If you’re a fan of Harry Potter with a PlayStation Eye and PlayStation Move that’ve been collecting dust, you may be interested to hear that a new peripheral is coming to the PlayStation 3 with a game from the mind of J.K. Rowling.Please enter the url to a YouTube video.
Sony’s Wonderbook is an AR pad that is designed to be similar to a book in appearance. By placing the mat in front of the PlayStation Eye, the mat can be used in games that support it. One such game is Book of Spells, which was created by J.K. Rowling of Harry Potter fame. In Book of Spells, players can use the PlayStation Move as a wand, and learn how to perform various spells. Speaking of Book of Spells, Rowling said:
Wonderbook: Book of Spells is the closest a Muggle can come to a real spellbook. I’ve loved working with Sony’s creative team to bring my spells, and some of the history behind them, to life. This is an extraordinary device that offers a reading experience like no other.
The Wonderbook is due for release later this year, with Book of Spells included. The bundle will be sold for $39.99.
