All-new Wonderbook peripheral for the PS3 system delivers the next evolution of storytelling using the PlayStation Eye camera
The first title to utilize the new PS3 peripheral, Wonderbook, Book of Spells has been launched today in North America, Sony Computer Entertainment announced. Inspired from the Harry Potter books, Wonderbook: Book of Spells takes players on a journey, allowing them to read and learn the secrets of wizardry while using PlayStation Move motion controller as their magic wand, just like a student at Hogwarts. Players will be able to practice spells they already know and love such as Incendio, Wingardium Leviosa and Expelliarmus, as well as discover mischievous notes and spells scribbled into the margins by previous Hogwarts students.
Wonderbook uses the PlayStation Eye camera to take augmented reality to new places, while drawing players into new worlds and allowing them to interact with stories as they tilt or rotate it, or simply turn the pages.
