Sony Project Field: Moving Trading Card Games To The Digital Realm
The mobile market is very profitable but when it comes to gaming there aren’t great titles available at the moment. That is where the mobile gaming platform is lagging behind at the moment. But the potential is still there.
Looking at the potential of the platform Sony has introduced something that will benefit both the mobile platform as well as the trading card games industry. Sony Project Field is a peripheral that allows physical trading cards to interact with smartphone and tablet applications.
If you are a 90s kid then you know how trading cards used to be very popular back in the day especially Pokemon cards. With the launch of Pokemon Go, that trend came back. Now With Sony Project Field it is possible that collecting these trading cards could be an even better experience.
What Sony Project Field does is allows special cards to interact with dedicated applications on your smartphone or tablet. Imagine having Pokemon cards that you can place on the Sony Project Field and have the respective Pokemon pop up in the game you have on your tablet. That would be very cool. You could play with other card collectors and have battles.
Sony Project Field could be something very important for the mobile gaming platform as well as the trading card game industry but one can argue that the whole concept of mobile gaming is that you always have your phone with you and having mobile games means that you can at any point in time pull out your phone and play a game. Having the Sony Project Field means that you will have to carry an additional item with you.
We will have to see the scope of Sony Project Field when people test it out. It will depend on how people perceive the idea and how much they appreciate the concept. What do you think about Sony Project Field?
