As Kotaku describes it:

Using the PSP and a specially designed disk, Invizimal hunters will have to locate and trap 100-plus hidden creatures, adding them to their collection. Creatures will be spawned based on environmental conditions, with a bit of randomness, to keep things interesting. The trapping of those creatures is vaguely Ghostbusters-esque: find the Invizimal with the on-screen sensor, throw down the trap, then slap the beast to stun it.

  1. very cool, can’t see it selling to the advertized age bracket though… no parents going to spend 400$ + game for their kid when they can get a ds and one of about 100 pokemon games for under $200… especially when every other kid in their class has a nintendo.

    if they were to adapt the tech to a bit of a more advanced game it would be cool… maybe something final fantasy ish… or some kind of espionage game… i could see it working with the metal gear solid licence.

    they could easily port this to the iphone too.

  2. @matt A PSP does not cos 400 $ it costs 169$
