CES 2012: PS Vita's Augmented Reality Transforms Table to Arena


Sponsored Links
133w ago - Today Sony's Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared some video footage from CES 2012 spotlighting PS Vita's Augmented Reality, which transforms your table into an arena!

To quote: A couple of months ago, [Register or Login to view links] that showed off some cool-looking augmented reality apps running on PS Vita.

Since then, it's been confirmed that Vita will come with six AR Play Cards and a voucher to download a handful of free augmented reality mini games via the PSN.

Today at CES, we were able to see one of these games in action: Table Football (it will be called Table Soccer in the US, because we already have football).

Backstage, Sony Santa Monica Sr. Manager Dave Thach dealt the AR Play Cards on a table, and a soccer pitch sprung to life through the window of the PS Vita's luscious OLED display.

The actual game is kind of like a turn-based soccer match - it reminded me of a 2012 version of paper football. But enough talk, let's see it in action:





Bonus points if you spotted the Men in Black 3 alien who walked through the frame. Vegas is weird.

Table Soccer is just one of the augmented-reality games you'll be able to play for free if you pick up a new PS Vita on February 22nd.
