Eye of Judgement frames PS3

Next-gen power unleashed in this, ah, camera-controlled card game for PS3

Sony has announced Eye of Judgement, a card game affair for PS3 which the company promises will allow new ways of interacting with the Playstation 3 console. Because, ya see, it makes use of "the ground-breaking technology" of Sony's EyeToy-style "next generation camera".

In fact, Sony showed the title at its E3 press conference yesterday, with our team in attendence describing it thus: "It's a bit like Pokemon but using the EyeToy. You use your hands to move cards around, and then little animals fight."

Anyway, the idea is that it's a kind of 3D version of trading card games, where the characters and monsters normally moping around in 2D are brought to life in the third dimension.


Players use a 3' by 3' board and trading cards that are encrypted with a 'cybercode', and waving this cybercode in front of the camera unleashes your 3D monster or character for battle. As you'd expect, each character and/or monster boasts a variety of skill sets, Sony explaining that "Players take turns to place cards as they jostle for control of the board; the winner is the first player to capture five of the nine squares. The Eye of Judgment presents the player with more than 30 cards, as well as unique online and offline gameplay."

Feast your eye of judgement on the screenshots.
