A brief YouTube video showing off an unannounced PlayStation 4 augmented-reality game called The Playroom just might make you giggle.
The video, released by Sony's Japanese PlayStation division Tuesday, shows how the upcoming PlayStation Eye camera can track theto provide a PlayStation Move-esque motion gaming experience. Judging by the video, The Playroom features a series of interactive augmented-reality minigames ranging from a souped-up Pong to a close encounter with a floating orb that may -- or may not -- virtually light your hair on fire.
The video also shows a user controlling a small army of cute virtual robots, which apparently reside within a DualShock 4 controller, and tossing them out into the augmented-reality space seen on a television. Toward the end of the clip, another user scribbles a red smiley face on his Sony phone and then flicks the image upward toward the PlayStation 4. In mere moments, his drawing appears on-screen and becomes an object that the small virtual robots can play with.
Sony didn't provide any sort of official release information for The Playroom, but it's likely we'll hear more about the title after the PS4 debuts later this year.
