With the launch of the PlayStation Vita around the corner in the US and Europe, Sony is starting to promote the system. At CES, Sony revealed that the handheld device will come with some free Augmented Reality (AR) video games.
As shown on the PlayStation blog, the Vita will come with a deck of cards that you can layout on any table that will transform it into a playing field for various games. One game shown to Jeff Rubenstein, of PS Blog was that of a table soccer (football for EU) game.
You can layout cards on the table to create goal posts, scoreboard, and bleachers on the fly. The game can be played with a friend via ad-hoc co-op across the table. It seems like a quick and fun little app that can be played with friends when bored.
The Vita will also come with a voucher to download a handful of free AR games as well.
Sony also revealed a new promo with Taco Bell where you can win a free PS Vita by munching on some tacos. Starting January 26th through March 11th, a PS Vita winner will be selected every 15 minutes. That is a lot of free Vitas if you think about it.
You can increase your chances by picking up the $5 Buck Taco Box or downloading Taco Bell’s mobile app to your phone.
UNLOCK THE BOX: Beginning January 26th, Taco Bell’s specially marked $5 Buck Box – which includes a Cheesy Gordita Crunch, Crunchy Taco, Burrito Supreme and medium fountain drink – will also provide a code that can be entered online for an instant chance to “unlock” and win a PS Vita.
BATTLE: Download Taco Bell’s new mobile app to check out the exclusively designed Reality Fighters Dojo game where you can “battle” your friends to win a PS Vita.
BOAST: Taco Bell’s online contest will encourage you to submit a photo or video “boasting” about what you’re willing to do for a PS Vita. Submissions will then go into an online gallery where you and your peers can vote for the winners
Apparently the PS Vita will come with a free copy of Little Deviants, 4GB Vita Memory Card and choice of ModNation Racers, MLB 12 The Show or LittleBigPlanet. Check out the PlayStation blog post for the full details.
