Wonder book or wonder game?

Of all the post-holiday sales stats, I’m most eager to hear about the performance of Sony’s Wonderbook.

It’s actually a multi-media experience for PlayStation3:  when placed on the floor at the correct distance from camera, pages from the JK Rowling “book” animate using augmented reality cards.

This game-like experience could indicate a future direction for children’s books, although I’m not sure videobooks like these will boost reading.
