My first thought after watching this video is: I wish I had a PS3. I think the console use of AR will help popularize the technology. While Sony’s motion sensing was one of the hot topics at E3, I think augmented reality should have had a more prominent place (of course, the Eye Pet requires some motion sensing). Hopefully, Ori will bring us news from the floor soon.
Couple of notes from the video. That is not a concept video but actual game play. Also, the game will require purchase of the PlayStation Eye, which I assume will come packaged with the game. I’m sure this game is only the first in a line of console AR games and I’m excited. Unfortunately, there is no listed release date yet.
