"Sony has been marketing where it counts"

Where is that? I hope they do well, but I'm a mom, and I haven't seen Wonderbook marketed anywhere. If I didn't regularly participate in the VGF and follow video game news, I wouldn't have even heard of it.

Yeah... uh... My 2 year old loves Nickelodeon: Spongebob, the new TNMT, that robot/monster show, etc, and I haven't seen a commercial for the Wonderbook.

Target market is 7-14, not two year olds.

Is your son in the 7-14 age range? Does he like Harry Potter?

Sorry, I forgot that advertising is now age specific. Meaning my TV only advertises to stuff a 2 year old would want regardless of what channel he is watching. Stupid me.

Did you really just say that?

How are people upvoting you? Your comment makes no sense. 7-14 year olds don't watch Nickelodeon? Or do people really think that every single TV advertises based on the person watching at that specific time?

I believe his point is that his kid is watching shows that are aimed at the 7-12 year old demographic, and he hasn't seen the Wonderbook advertised at all.

I thought the wonderbook was a laptop?

EDIT: Oh it is an object that allows augmented reality stuff? How much does this cost?

I was at chuck-e-cheese this past weekend and there were Wonderbook ads all over the place and up in your face. I agree with Oskar and have faith in his guarantee™.

Still that doesn't prove/ discredit anything. A few days back there was a thread about LBPK not having any advertising, and that same evening I saw an LBPK ad on Nickelodeon while walking along the TV room while my boys were watching it.

Good scores, though still not enough to warrant picking up an entire Move for just one game, especially since it clearly is made for kids. Good for those with a Move and kids though.

Amazon's price $35 for the game or $75 for the game/eye/move controller bundle.

My son is five-and-a-half, but as with Foxhound's kid, he regularly watches things that are geared toward a slightly older demographic. That said, he isn't a huge Harry Potter fan, so you could have a point there. Frankly, from what I've seen, we're already on the tail-end of the HP craze. That was more of my stepdaughter's thing when she was little, and she's 16 now.

I am sorry you don't understand the world of advertising.

I got to say, it looks pretty damn nifty. And a good price too.

I honestly think Wonderbook is a good idea but the marketing has been non-existent in the US for it. Supposedly the marketing budget for this is bigger than the Move in Europe but from what I have heard there hasn't been that big of a push for it there either.

I actually plan on buying Wonderbook but I have two games coming next week so I am holding off.

The Move bundle is $75 with this game, when compared to a full retail game that is not too shabby.

Yep, its price point is perfect for parents and being Harry Potter related it is irresistible to kids.

$75 is the same price as the Skylanders starter set. And you can use the Move controller/PSeye for many other games too.
Unlike the Skylanders portal.

I'm seeing $39.96 for the game only and $79.96 for the Move bundle.

Anyway, we already have the Move and will likely pick this up eventually, but the fact that the reviewer specifically mentions some difficulty getting the camera set up definitely gives me pause. We have perpetual problems with this on all of the AR Move games, and it's frustrating to the point that we rarely ever use the Move at all anymore.

Yeah, Sports Champions 2 is a big draw to the older kids in the age range as well. And parents love Sports Champions!

That isn't bad, but still a bit high, IMHO. Though bare in mind outside Zelda and Skyrim I haven't bought a game at full price in years. I always wait for the 6 month price drop. I am cheap like that. If my girls were a bit older, I'd considered this bundle. Sony should have launched with something like this for the Move. IMHO, it is the first good game (dedicated game) for the Move. Everything else has been blah.

I see, my bad. I thought you couldn't find it. I read incorrectly. My apologies.
