Sony has announced that the Playroom tech demo software will come pre-installed on every PlayStation 4 when the console releases this holiday season.

Playroom combines the PlayStation Camera and DualShock 4 controller to offer the player several augmented reality toys which showcase the power of the peripherals.

  • Light Bar: This is tracked by the PlayStation Camera to create interactive on-screen effects, such as holographic panels that hover around you.
  • Motion Sensor and improved dual motors: Once your robot helper, Asobi, has beamed some AR Bots into your DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller, you can rock it in your hands to feel them tumbling around inside. Or you can swing and sway your DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller in a game of holographic Air Hockey, where you can stretch, twist and bend the board to gain the upper hand.
  • Touch Pad: Used for scrolling and interacting with the various augmented reality menus. You can also use this to flick objects out of the DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller for the loveable AR Bots to play with.

You can check out a video of Playroom in action below.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
