PlayStation 4: What Sony must do

PlayStation 4: What Sony must do

If you believe the hype, then Sony will be revealing the next PlayStation in just a few short weeks at a February 20 event. The announcement of a new console is all well and good, but once the party's over and the reveal has been made, Sony then faces the difficult task of making the next PlayStation successful in the new generation. It's something of a blank slate - the other competitors in the console space are releasing new machines as well, so the platform wars can begin anew. Sony did a lot of good things with the PS3, but in order to make the PS4 a smashing success, it's going to need to ramp it up in a few areas.

Wonderbook: Book of Spells lands on November 13

Sony's new Wonderbook project has left some scratching their heads, but if you're a Harry Potter fan, you may be pleased to know that the first game in the Wonderbook series will launch on November 13. That first game is dubbed Wonderbook: Book of Spells, and in it, players will use the augmented reality capabilities of the PlayStation Move and Eye to learn about and cast spells from the Harry Potter series, including Incendio, Wingardium Leviosa, and Harry's own signature spell, Expelliarmus.

Sony PlayStation Move Racing Wheel is one crazy contraption

Sony PlayStation Move Racing Wheel is one crazy contraption

Motion-controlled gaming does function pretty well in many applications, but one area where it leads to nothing but confusion and frustration is in racing games. People hated Microsoft's Kinect-powered hands-free racing mini-games, Nintendo's Mario Kart on Wii only works well if you have a Wii Remote wheel attachment, and now Sony is going down that same path.

This week the folks at Sony have revealed the first of many titles for a device called the Wonderbook - an accessory that works with the PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation Move.
