At Sony’s E3 press conference they unveiled their new Wonderbook peripheral. The Wonderbook works with the Playstation Move to bring books to life on your TV screen. The first game for the new device is called Book of Spells and it features the world of Harry Potter. Users will be able to turn their living room into an interactive Hogwarts classroom and learn all kinds of spells. The technology looks promising and with J.K. Rowling’s help it should be fun for Harry Potter fans. Take a look at the screens below to get an idea of how it will work.
Mike's first experience with a console was in the early 80’s when his dad brought home an Atari 400. It wasn’t the greatest gaming machine at the time but it did play a crude version of Pac-Man and it had a keyboard. But, Mike's love for videogames really got started when his friend invited him over to his house to show off his newly acquired NES with Super Mario Bros. Mike had never experienced a game like that before and his friend actually convinced him that jumping into one of the pits would give him a powerup. It was a cruel joke and Mario lept to his death. But from that moment on Mike was hooked.
Mike was originally brought onto the Gaming Trend staff as a PSP editor starting with the god awful Major League Baseball 2K8. Thankfully, these days he reviews much better titles. He also spends an obscene amount of time playing The Lord of the Rings Online with his Dwarf Rune Keeper named McLush and his Warden named Hanton on the Elendilmir server.
