These AR Games Are The PS Vita's 'Holy Crap' Moment

AR is the Nintendo 3DS's holy crap moment. Ditto for the PS Vita. Sony is offering a new spin on AR with markerless AR play.

It's impressive to see in action, and certainly something to show the friends if you want to wow them with your new hardware. Here, Sony shows off upcoming PS Vita title Reality Fighters.

The AR photo mode that allows viewing and picture taking in 360 degrees is not a PS Vita first (there are iTunes apps that can do similar things). That doesn't stop it from being cool.

Check out the PS Vita's AR function in action in the above videos.


    I hate to say this, I really do. but I cannot see what so 'holy crap' inducing about these images, for all intents and purposes I saw was a fighting game with a green screen as the background which then whatever the camera was pointing at became the backdrop. I'm hoping Sony can find a way to make it a little more interactive than this, if at all possible at this moment.

      I agree. I was impressed with my AR cards on the 3DS, but only for about 10 seconds, until I realized it got out of sync really easily, and there was no interaction.

      I'm not even sure if it's possible, but they need to be able to detect obstacles too, otherwise the tech is kinda pointless...

    AR is a lame gimmick. Nice they're putting it in, but I'm buying a Vita because it's awesome, not because it's got AR.

    I just don't see the point... its fun for like 5mins lol

    I think it's rad and hilarious. I wonder if they could work it into katamari
