Everyone in gaming might be hyping 3D, but Sony has been focused on slightly different, esoteric gaming experience since at least 2003: Augmented Reality gaming. Sony's next handheld system (code name: NGP) will feature some very impressive tech that will allow AR games beyond what we've seen before. Using the system's camera, the NGP takes your immediate surrounding and creates games based on where you actually are.
According to the PlayStation Blog,
"NGP builds on our experience with augmented reality over the years with PlayStation 2/EyeToy, PSP, and PS3/PlayStation Move. With front and rear cameras that combine real-time images of you and your environment, a brilliant 5-inch multi-touch OLED screen and rear multi-touch pad, internal motion sensors, and dual analog sticks, NGP offers new ways to interact that will change the way you think about augmented reality games… and possibly even change the way you think about reality"
