Also only noted in brief passing during Sony’s montage of upcoming PSP games: Invizimals, an augmented reality monster hunter/battler game from Barcelona studio Novarama that utilizes the PSP’s camera attachment to “hunt” invisible creatures and capture them via included augmented-reality cards.

The PSP camera originally debuted in Japan in 2006 and was released across Europe a year later as Go!Cam (the Go! brand obviously now widening with the latest model PSP), but still has yet to make its stateside appearance: the teasing of Invizimals is the strongest sign yet that it might finally arrive.

    AR games are far too weak and gimmicky to hold up much for ps2 (the eye) and a bit weird for pc (the interactive maid I think it was) but i think handhelds are just the market theyve been meant for. Especially now that theyre able to process them and the DSi even has its own camera, i hope alot more come out soon. (even if thyre not that great, because theres no better way to progress than failure)
