If you've been wondering what happened to that lovely game that had that abysmal showing at this past year's E3, where the wand thing didn't work right and it went on a few minutes too many, take a sigh of relief because Sony's Wonderbook for the PlayStation Move is still alive and well and nine new screenshots have surfaced for the game.
Wonderbook is like a beginner's spell book containing beginner spells, enchantments and magic casting. Players will use the PS Move to perform certain wand movements to carry out various spells using both the game software and the book as a guide and sort of playing carriage.
It doesn't take a lot of imagination to figure how the the Book of Spells managed to look unimpressive at E3. The live-demonstration probably put tons of pressure on everyone there and anytime motion-controls get dragged into the picture it's kind of a gamble relying on the thing to work right.
Still, the concept is yet another attempt by Sony to revive the PlayStation EyeToy and I don't think any company has worked quite as hard as Sony when it comes to trying to keep a failed product alive. They just might hit the jackpot with Wonderbook given that it's attached to J.K. Rolling and I'm sure a bunch of kids will want to throw all their Harry Potter knowledge at this product like it was a real testing ground for becoming a legit wizard.
