What is Wonderbook?
Wonderbook is a physical book made of paper and card which brings to life a thousand stories with a brand new series of adventures and experiences to explore. A powerful storytelling vehicle and tool for the imagination, Wonderbook will bring exclusive content in immersive new ways by putting you at the heart of the action, using augmented reality technology to transform the world around you. Bringing mystery and discovery to your living room, Wonderbook titles will draw you into new worlds, and give you the chance to live in the stories you love.
The first story: Wonderbook Book of Spells
Book of Spells is the first title for Wonderbook, the latest addition to the PlayStation experience. Written by Miranda Goshawk over two hundred years ago, Book of Spells can be found in the Restricted Section of the Hogwarts library. It is an advanced textbook for students, which will assist them on their journey to becoming an accomplished witch or wizard.
Book of Spells provides students with a safe environment in which to read, discover, learn and practise spells they already know and love, such as Incendio, Wingardium Leviosa and Expelliarmus, as well as discover mischievous notes and spells scribbled into the margins by previous Hogwarts students, and humorous anecdotal facts relating to the spells. J.K. Rowling has written a conundrum that leads you through the experience, providing insight into the values a witch or wizard has to learn, and inviting you to journey through the book to unlock new content, rewarding successful students along the way.
Discover the magic.
Wonderbook takes augmented reality to spectacular new places with an intuitive and easy to use book. Tilting, rotating, or simply turning the pages bring stories to life all around you like never before.
Learn the art of spell-casting.
Chapter by chapter, you will be able to read about and practise 20 spells, picking up valuable experiences and lessons along the way - as well as House Points - just like a student at Hogwarts.
Original content from J.K. Rowling.
From the world of Harry Potter, the Book of Spells reveals new and exciting content by the world’s best-loved author. Offering backstories to the famous spells, valuable lessons and brand new creatures, student wizards can unlock more writing with every chapter test.
Introducing the New PlayStation 3
The newly redesigned PlayStation 3 is smaller and lighter than ever before; packed with all the gaming fun you'd expect from PlayStation but in a brand new case!
By redesigning the internal design architecture, and removing the disc-fed tray and replacing it with a sliding top-loading disk cover, the PS3 Super Slim is reduced in size by up to 25% compared to the current Slim PS3.
The PS3 12GB Super Slim is a home entertainment system in a discreet and sleek console that allows you to play Blu-Ray Discs, DVD's, Music CD's and watch TV through the BBC, ITV and Channel 4 iPlayer (Internet connection required).
A J.K. Rowling written story.
Visually immersive action.
A unique reading experience.
Exciting spell casting.
* Images simulated. Actual game images appear on your television. Book of Spells is sold separately from the PS3 system, PlayStation Eye camera and PlayStation Move motion controller.

This was a Black Friday deal, and as I only wanted the console I gave away all Wonderbook stuff. I also bought a Sony PlayStation 3 Replacement Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Mounting Bracket, so I could swap my SSD from my old PS3, and a SONY PLAYSTATION 3 SUPER SLIM VERTICAL STAND FOR CECH-4000 SERIES.
Other than the smaller footprint, and smaller drive it is identical to the older PS3 (Sony PlayStation 3 320GB Slim Console).
It does so much more than a stand alone player, and the spell book is great with the kids. Think we'll be sticking with this for a while until the PS4 drops down a bit in price :-)
Regarding the PS3, what can I say, it's a PS3! Games work just fine, I've got my own drive in it so I can get my stuff from PSN, netflix is nice etc. I use it daily, gaming about once a week.
Conclusion: The kids love it, I sometime "have to help them" too ;-) and it gives me enough parental control so I don't have to sit and watch what is going on all the time. Would recommend.

The spells game is great. The only down fall with this is memory. We had to buy extra from amazon for £30 otherwise we didn't have loads.Published 21 months ago by zoe
Despite the fact that we do not use it very often, PS3 broke twice in the recent months and Sony does not adhere to EU 2 years warranty giving only 12 months. Read morePublished on 31 Aug. 2014 by Kamis
Buy one with a bigger hard drive or buy an internal hard drive to install! 12GB is far too small. The console and Move work fine. I never played the game.Published on 21 Aug. 2014 by Tom Kirkness-Little
