Wonderbook Announced for PS3; J.K. Rowling's Book of Spells Revealed

Wonderbook has been announced for PlayStation 3. It will be released in Fall 2012.

The book peripheral uses augmented reality sensors to bring stories to life before your eyes (aka on the television screen in front of you).

Sony is partnering with developers such as Moonbot Studios and, most noteworthy, Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling, who has created the first Wonderbook title, Book of Spells.

Book of Spells represents the first partnership between PlayStation and Pottermore, Rowling's expansive hub for all things relating to the Boy Who Lived. As you'd expect, Book of Spells lets players cast spells using the PlayStation Move and explore the whimsical fantasy lands of Rowling's creation.

The title will also include exclusive new and original writing from Rowling, but no other details were shared.

Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation - Official E3 2012 News

The PlayStation Vita gets its own mysterious assassin with Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation.

Not only does PS Vita get a new wielder of the hidden blade, but from the looks of it, we get our very first female assassin. During the day, she appears to be young Puritan woman, but at night - or at least later that day - we get to see her climbing trees and taking our her mark with a single stab.

Players who get Liberation will also gain a little something extra while playing Assassin's Creed 3. If that wasn't enough to sweeten the deal for you, the new PS Vita Bundle package comes with the crystal white PS Vita, 4 gigabyte memory card, and the game this October 30th. This truly is the year of the assassin.
