Eye of Judgement Demonstration
The Japanese PS3 site has a nice video demonstration of Eye of Judgement with Assistant Producer (or is he?), Yusuke Watanabe, chatting about various aspects of the Yu Gi Oh alike card game.
According to IGN, who translated what Watanabe-san had to say in the video interview, Eye of Judgement is only possible on the PS3:
“Eye of Judgment is a title that will deliver a brand new experience to the user. It’s a difficult concept, and we believe that it is something that can only be achieved on the PlayStation 3.”
The game works by using technology that scans 2D bar codes, known as Cyber Codes, which the camera picks up & then displays the monster & it’s attributes/actions that’s associated with the Cyber Code.
There will be a versus mode set over a 3×3 grid but there may also be the option to battle players from anywhere in the world over the PLAYSTATION online network.
As you may have probably guessed you don’t need to touch the PS3 controller to play Eye of Judgement as the cards do all the work. Just make sure to wipe your hands after munching on some Pork Scratchings before you touch the cards. 😉
It’s a nice little reminder for people who can’t wait to see more of this unique game at TGS ’06. My interest is high for this game.
