Sony’s Neat Vita AR Box Opening Game Might Make It Outside Of Japan

By Spencer . February 26, 2013 . 1:52am

openSony Computer Entertainment’s PlayStation C.A.M.P. group created a cool augmented reality game called Box! Open Me in Japan. This PlayStation Vita title is sort of like The Room for iOS since it tasks players to unlock a virtual box. Sony’s title is sillier in comparison since it has toaster oven and washing machine "boxes" to open.


While Sony hasn’t said anything about bringing Box! Open Me overseas, it appears they are considering it. Sony filed a trademark for Open Me in Europe for use with video games.



If you have a Japan region PSN account and a spare Vita memory card you can download Box! Open Me from PlayStation Network right now.

    A quirky and refreshing title is nice for Vita :)

    I assume that they will be using kinect for that. Saw something very similar like this by an Augmented Reality company called AdStuck

    This has me actually genuinely interested in almost remotely thinking about maybe buying a Vita.

    As I stated before, the Vita really needs more unique titles like this. You know, ones that use it’s plethora of control schemes and power to good use, not just ports of games that people would most likely buy on PS3 anyway. I know AR is far from being the most innovative thing in the world, but at least this title is trying it’s very best to be different in the current sea of Vita games (which is admittedly shallow at the moment).

      Why is it people never say this about Nintendo games? People always say “Once the 3DS gets a new Mario” “Once the 3DS gets a new Zelda” and 9 out of ten times the games will be better on Wii/Wii U/Gamecube anyway.

      Don’t get me wrong I agree with you, I bought the Vita for Soul Sacrifice, but why is it people never talk of first party 3DS Nintendo games as “Watered down” console games, because that’s what they are.

      “Unique title” will not safe vita if sony not give a lot money to promotion

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    I hope the game has bacon

  • TheInternetNomad

    they should have a metal gear themed level with boxes that have “surprises” inside of ’em.

  • Micrll

    Well this would be interesting to play with. I doubt there is much text to localize in it so the cost of bringing it over should be quite low. Then again, we got trademark registrations for [email protected] games and obviously those are not coming at this point soooo.
