Sony Scores an Augmented Reality Goal With Pocket Soccer for Vita

January 12, 2012 Written by Anthony Severino

When the PlayStation Vita launches in just a few short weeks, it will come bundled with six augmented reality AR cards and a voucher to download some AR games from the PSN. Little has been revealed as to what those games or cards entail, but at the ongoing Consumer Electronics Show, Sony is showed off one of the titles.

The PlayStation.Blog has released a video of the Augmented Reality Vita game Table Football (called Pocket Soccer here in the States), which shows how the Vita using its built-in camera can turn a table into a sports stadium. Take a look.


This is just one of six AR games to be packed in with the Vita at launch. Wide-Area Augmented Reality is going to be a big focus for Sony with the Vita, so expect more and more to be revealed in the coming weeks and beyond.
