  • “Waaaahhh waaaaah, Sony abandons hardware, like they did the Move.”

    Guess what? The Move is not abandoned. The same controllers potentially collecting dust in your closet are relevant again. They could have introduced new controllers to use for VR and charged you for them. I happened to keep mine, so I had to spend less on my headset. Get it? Not adandoned. Still useful with new tech. And if you’ve actually tried this thing, you would see that they actually work well.

    Gonna go play some new releases on PSvita because there are still new releases coming for it as well. Meanwhile, what’s Kinect up to?

  • Whoo! Hype for Rise of the Tomb Raider and Valkyrie Drive!
    All good so far! :D Great line up for the week. Wish I could get the PSVR but better versions are sure to come in the future.

  • A lot of VR games indeed even some I wasn’t aware of…the main event for me is VR Worlds but I dunno when I’ll be getting VR.Gotta say though the release date came fast…damn,time flies.

    Also add 1 more voice to the mess that is that list.

    BTW loving support for VR hu…I’m eager to see if this’ll continue in the next years or if it’ll be like Move.

    • Oh forgot to say…Rise of the Tomb Crap releasing this week too hu,I feel sorry for people who’ll support that sellout game,buying it later in a good price drop…but at high price pffft no damn way.

  • I see all these people on here putting down others for their opinions, just because it isn’t what they’re thinking. We aren’t robots, or all on ridalin or zoloft to numb ourselves to feel nothing at all. And we all have our very own thoughts and opinions. Each person that thinks for themselves should feel proud. Those that put you down are the bad people, just because they don’t have the will to think for themselves.

    With that said, I have to agree with a lot of you that think that Playstation(and all consoles and game developers) needs to concentrate more on the quality of the games released, instead of the quantity.

  • After the No Man’s Sky mess (and this was the main reason why I got a PS4…sigh), I’m willing to give VR a shot, but I need the games to justify such an investment…

    Elite Dangerous Horizons is coming…

    And also I will wait for EVE: Valkyrie’s review.

    Give me a good documented reason to buy this and I will.

  • Battlezone , riggs and eve valkyrie (to some extend)are really similar type of game…

    • That said, Call of Duty, Battlefield, Titanfall and Battlefront are as well. Oh and don’t buy Tomb Raider because to some “extent” it’s just like Uncharted. Lol smh.

  • Hey look at all the awesome games that are getting pushed aside like an afterthought thanks to the “wonderful” VR… :/

  • any f2p games this week?

  • I had the money for VR just chose to buy game instead plus my room is way to small for it

  • Sony… You really need to include screenshots for games you add to the store. Don’t have any? Wait until you have some before you try to get money from people.
