Eye of Judgment coming out this fall, microtransactions elevated to a new level



One of the coolest Playstation 3 titles I saw last year was the Eye of Judgment. Usually I’m not a fan of card games, but the technology behind the Eye of Judgment grabbed my attention. Instead of having a virtual deck, you use physical cards that you place on a 3 x 3 game board. The Playstation Eye camera deciphers which cards you threw on the board and displays the monster or spell effect on your TV. The Playstation Eye also allows players to interact with their monsters by poking the empty space where the monster would stand on the game board if it was real. The creative presentation sold me until I found out you have to collect a series of actual cards for the game. Hasbro announced that they are going to be collaborating with Sony to sell trading cards with encrypted CyberCodes that work with the PS3 game. Microtransaction overkill?
