We understand the complaints that claim $250 is too much for a handheld console, but what if the PlayStation Vita doubled as a pair of X-Ray goggles too? That’s exactly what happens when you pick up Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, allowing you to easily uncover hidden in-game treasure and mark it on the big-screen for PlayStation 3 players.

Using a combination of augmented reality and cross-controller technology, the upcoming Sanzaru Games developed platformer allows you to transform the traditionally isolated Sly Cooper experience into something bizarrely co-operative. The feature’s difficult to explain without a visual reference, so we’ll pass you over to company president Glen Egan for more. It looks pretty neat, huh?
