Game went from a measly 13k opening week to sell 80k on Christmas week. Who knows how well it'll perform these coming months. Now that the Wonderbook is out there, will future games for it sell better than Book of Spells or was this just a one-hit-wonder? Which game should Sony release next?
I myself think that this is Sony's USP(unique selling point) that will distinguish it from Kinect and Wii U. If they are smart they will try and get bigger IP and maybe even carry this over to the PS4.
If you're interested more on Wonderbook here are some early prototypes of Dr. Frankenstein, Hansel and Gretel, and The Little Prince!
