Arcade Card Battlers For The Home?

Twisted Supreme May 17, 2007 0

Kotaku ran a post about about the Dragon Quest Video and brought up a good point about weather or not the technology of the PS3 Eye could be used to support a home version of the Dragon Quest Arcade game. To add to this I would say that Sega’s card games and Taito’s Kings of the Jurassiccould be supported in this way too. Seeing as they use bar-codes the Ps3 camera could read these and then you could play the arcade game at home but with special effects like in Eye Of Judgement (see below).

They have already done some of these games on the Nintendo DS……

The Kotaku Post……

“The new Dragon Quest arcadegame from Square-Enix isn’t likely to see much exposure, if any, outside of Japanese arcades as the card-based gaming scene is strongest there. But this trailer, overly dramatic though it may be, makes it look just thrilling to play. With the card-buying revenue stream surely to make greedy executives drool with profit hunger worldwide, I wouldn’t be surprised to the see home-based card readers make their way onto store shelves over the next few years.

What do you think? Would a card-reader for the Wiior EyeToy-based game like Eye of Judgment for the PLAYSTATION 3 catch on?”
