550°
145w 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:

Greetings! Another week brings another content update to the PlayStation Store!

To start with, we have AMY from Lexis Numerique - a survival horror game not for the faint of heart.

If you're too frightened then there's Zack Zero, a 3D platform action title from Crocodile.

Demo wise we have Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Asura's Wrath to play around with - two games I am greatly looking forward to!

This week also brings more content for titles ranging from Battlefield 3 (pew pew pew!) to EyePet (pet pet pet?)

Finally, at the bottom of this post you will find answers to some of the most frequent questions in the comments from last week's post.

We're taking this approach because, while we would love to answer everyone and everything instantly, sometimes giving an accurate answer requires further research, legal clearance or approval from one of our third-party partners.

We will still get involved in the comments and endeavour to respond as much as we can; if you're query isn't answered right away then rest assured that we do read them and hopefully it will be addressed...
