PS Vita’s Augmented Reality Not Forgotten About

If you own a Vita, you may be forgiven for thinking that the rather nifty AR feature has been forgotten about. Well worry no more. At GDC last week, there was some footage of the range of possibilities at hand with the Vita.

Three videos have now surfaced onto the ever trusty YouTube and are here for you to see.

The videos are well worth a watch although they do go on a bit. One thing that you should take note of is the sheer volume of “interest points” the camera picks up.

Oh and who doesn’t want to make their table wobble?



  1. I love this technology. I’m not really sure how it can be used as a redeeming feature in a game, rather than something gimick-y, but for non gaming purposes (such as AR HUDs, Android’s Layer etc), this is pretty amazing.

  2. I haven’t even taken the cards out of the box yet to be honest?

  3. Seriously think this could be the future of gaming for handhelds. Certainly offers something that a console can’t. I want a murder mystery game like la noire were you map, for example, your house. The machine memorises the rooms and can place the victim with hidden clues. Basically LA noire or heavy rain with a different experience depending on your environment. Possible?
