Sony Have Released A Video Showing The History Of Augmented Reality And Playstation

Sony have released a new video showing the history of Augmented Reality on the Playstation 2, Playstation Portable, Playstation 3, and the upcoming NGP (PSP2). the video shows action and prototypes of several Augmented Reality Games, with a focus on the bigger successes on each platform. its revealed that using a camera on the PS2 happened nearly by accident, they were just seeing what would happen if you attached one to a PS2. they talk about how with more power they're able to use it in different ways, with the PS3 its Playstation Move and with the PSP2 its using Augmented Reality without cards. There is, through most of the video, a dig at Nintendo as Sony do say they did it first and they do Augmented Reality best.
