37w ago - Sony Associate Producer Jenny Barbour has shared a developer diary video today announcing that Wonderbook: Book of Spells is coming to PS3 on November 13th, 2012.
To quote: I wanted to give you an update on a project that we are incredibly excited about here at PlayStation: Wonderbook.
Although we only announced it a few months ago, our team at London Studio has been working hard on the technology behind Wonderbook for years.
We recently sat down with the team to create a series of "making of" diaries that give you a closer look at the development of Wonderbook. To kick off these developer diaries, the team focused on the core technology that helped form the foundation of the project.
The first game to use this new technology is the product of our collaboration with J.K. Rowling, Wonderbook: Book of Spells. By taking PlayStation Move's augmented reality capabilities and pairing them with the Wonderbook peripheral, we were able to create a truly immersive, magical world in which you'll be able to learn how to cast many spells including: Incendio, Wingardium Leviosa and Expelliarmus, with your very own spell book and wand.
51w ago - Associate Producer Jenny Barbour has shared some videos straight from E3 2012 today of Wonderbook: Book of Spells which features writing from J.K. Rowling.
To quote: As you may have heard, PlayStation had some exciting news to reveal tonight.
For some time now, we have been working on a project called Wonderbook - an interactive book that uses Augmented Reality technology and PlayStation Move products to bring stories to life before your eyes.
The AR in Wonderbook has been developed by London Studio - the team behind EyeToy and EyePet. We believe that this is the most advanced AR out there, not least because it utilizes brand new technology which enables enhanced fidelity.
Wonderbook is a physical book that will act as a platform for a range of different titles that the whole family will enjoy. Games, reading experiences, adventures - the possibilities are endless for Wonderbook, and we can't wait to tell you more about the exciting things you can look forward to on this peripheral.
It truly is one book, with a thousand stories. In North America, Wonderbook will be available for $39.99 for both the book and Blu-ray game.
