Wondering about Wonderbook?


Have you seen a Wonderbook game and couldn’t decide if it was worth getting? How many are there? Is it an actual book? Well first off it has some pages and looks like a book, each page has shapes that the PlayStation 3 can understand using the PlayStation Camera (sold separately). Four games can be used with the Wonderbook, two of which are out now.*

Now the important question, is it worth getting? Well check out my review for Diggs Nightcrawler and have a look at the videos below. I think Wonderbook is great, especially if you can find it on sale. I asked Sony about any other Wonderbook games or interactive stories being planned, their reply was, “We haven’t announced any additional Wonderbook products at this time.”  But what do you think? Let us know in the comments at the bottom of the page.
