The Book of Spells, a new Harry Potter title, will be the first Wonderbook released for Playstation.

Sony has shown off a new augmented reality book at the preview for this year's E3 expo.

The Sony Wonderbook will use specially created AR books that will interact with the Playstation 3 console and its Eye digital camera to create interactive experience for readers. The camera will detect the book, and then display AR content on the screen.

The Wonderbook release is set to be a new Harry Potter title, written by JK Rowling, the author of the popular series, titled The Book of Spells. The book will feature augmented reality games, with players casting spells using the Playstation Move motion controller as a wand to cast spells.

Sony also announced new PS3 exclusive games including Beyond, God of War: Ascension, Last of Us, and PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale; and new titles for its PS Vita mobile gaming device including Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation, Call of Duty Black Ops Declassified and PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.

A new PlayStation Move Racing Wheel was also launched.
