133w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez has shared some video footage today of PlayStation Vita's Augmented Reality Suite below.

To quote: At [Register or Login to view links], we scored a backstage demo of Table Soccer, one of three augmented reality games that show off PS Vita's Wide Area Augmented Reality capability.

Today, Sony Santa Monica Sr. Manager Dave Thach returns with two new augmented reality games, Fireworks and Cliff Diving. Both are part of the Augmented Reality Suite coming exclusively to PS Vita on Feb 22nd on PSN for free. Also, packaged with your PS Vita will be six AR cards which will also work with Reality Fighters, and other great AR experiences.

Fireworks transforms the world around you into a firework display where you'll literally touch the apex of the firework for multipliers, combos and points. Cliff Diving introduces you to diver Dave, where you'll have him diving off your coffee table into a virtual body of water.

Before you check out this video, make sure you watch our very first tour with Table Soccer which completes the AR Suite on PS Vita.
