  • SportsBarVR and Pixel Gear for me. I’m in love with my PSVR (actually have it on atm) and i’ve heard nothing but great things from SportsBar. Pixel Gear looks perfect for VR as well.

    Side note, Driveclub VR is phenomenal and exhilarating in VR. Rigs, Arkham, and Bound are amazing as well.

  • Sportsbar VR! Also, gonna rent Battlefield 1 at Redbox to play through the single player campaign.

  • PS2 Classics Wish List:
    – Silent Hill 2/3/The Room/Origins (i don’t like HD remasters)
    – Valkyrie Profile 2 Silmeria
    – Obscure 1/2
    – Xenosaga 1/2/3
    – Hounting Ground

    • I’d love to see the old Silent Hill games re-released for the new console (the old dotHack games too, while we’re wishing), but that would require Konami to care about their old franchises, which they don’t seem to do at the moment.

    • I understand the desire to voice the games you’d like but is this the best place to do it? I don’t think the PS2 Classic decision makers will ever read this.

  • get my ps vr tmrw so excited!!!!

  • Ok, PSVR people. If you like 3D platfomers (ala Super Mario 3D World) stop what you’re doing IMMEDIATELY, and download Playroom VR from PSN (it is 100% free for PSVR owners), and play “Robots Rescue.” It is MAGICAL!

    You’re welcome.

    • I have it installed, but have not played with it yet, I already have backlog in VR, finished Batman, I loved every minute of it, played a bit of london heist, i am loving the shooting range, the immersion is phenomenal, I still have EVE, Battlezone, Until Dawn, RIGS, Driveclub, Job Sim, mostly been trying bits and pieces on the demo disc, but I have the full games, and now this Bar VR, thanks for the heads up. The tech is great, loving it so far,

    • I didnt even think of Playroom VR as a game and then tried it!! My wife and I played it together and loved every minute!! The Robots Rescue game is amazing!! Same with the Haunted House and Western games! The collection aspect of the actual playroom was so cool too! (when you get the monster who looks in on the playroom above you!!!)

  • Looking forward to Sports Bar VR. I had fully planned to get Battlefeild 1, but now that I have PSVR, I don’t know how much I will be playing non VR games going forward. So far, I have had a blast with most of the launch titles. Out of the 17 I purchased, only Here They Lie, is little to much for me to handle.Batman, VR Worlds, Driveclub, Eve, Rigs, Until Dawn, and Job Simulator, are all very high quality gaming experiences.

    At this point, I am very excited to see how much PS4 Pro does to help make games in VR look sharper and more viberant. They work perfectly well on my Day One PS4 mind you, but it I can get an even better VR experience then Pro will be worth every penny.

    Last thing, I am just trying to get this out as much as possible so we can hopfully get a fix. Some games seem to have a problem of drifting the center point to the left. Driveclub is really bad. Otherwise, if that was ironed out, I think PSVR is a great 1st step into the unlimited future of VR.

  • Finally Exist Archive will be released! I’ve been waiting for this game for so long! Time to enjoy a Valkyrie Profile-ish battle system in my PS4!

  • Anxiously waiting for midnight to play Battlefield 1 played the beta awhile back and I’m hyped for WW1!

  • Hmm, no Destroy All Humans 1 or 2 yet. Unless it randomly gets released like how Red Dead Revolver was.

    • Yea I wish Destroy All Humans was released but hey Red Dead Revolver is good til it comes if it does

    • Just because you don’t know how games are picked doesn’t mean it’s random.

    • What? If you were following the release of these PS2 emulated games, you would’ve seen that when Red Dead Revolver released (last week Tuesday I believe), the day before The Drop DID NOT make any mention about it releasing the next day, even though the trophy list was out for a few weeks. THAT is what I meant by it being randomly released – it was “random” of them because nothing was said beforehand.

  • Does Battlefield 1 have any Split Screen like Star Wars Battlefront?

  • So many Vita games the last few weeks…can’t keep up.

    Excited for both Exist Archive and Sega Girls. First Hyperdimension game, I have not pre-ordered.

    Sadly, too many vita games to complete and review.

    • So many Vita games! I finished Rebirth 2 and am now on Hyperdevotion Noire. I will have to go back to 2 in order to get the Platinum though. Those credits and Stella are gonna be a stitch to get. #NoireisbestCPU

  • It’s Battlefield 1 and Batman Arkham for me. Might look into Bug Butcher to see if it’s any good.

  • It’s strange that the Jackbox Party Pack 3 doesn’t actually have a You Don’t Know Jack game on it, especially since that’s easily the meatiest of the bunch. Is the Murder Trivia thing supposed to take the place of that?

  • As far as PS2 games go yet, I’m perfectly satisfied with what I’ve got so far since I’ve got a good amount of them, but Soul Calibur III is the one that should be a must yet since that was basically a PS2 exclusive and even Jak X someday since that’s the only Jak game for the PS2 that didn’t get remastered, but in a perfect world I’d even like Harry Potter 2 and 3 in particular, Spider-man 2, Battlefront II, Crash Twinsanity, Thrillville, and Tony Hawk’s American Wasteland and the Underground games would be nice too.

  • As far as PS2 games go, I’d be happy with DragonQuest VIII. I was hoping they would release it along side DragonQuest Builders, but we can’t get that lucky.

  • Well they never released Dragon Quest 7 on Ps One Classic, so i wont count on Square Enix for DQ8 ON PS4. Nintendo released DQ7 and will release DQ8 on 3DS. SE seem to like IOS and Android for good old DQ serie in west

  • The kid in me wants that harry potter collection

  • Does the Keeper of 4 Elements have In-app purchases?

  • Am I missing something? I see all the games dropped today in the store except for Sportsbar VR??!

  • Good stuff! Hey, why is it that these game trailers are always grainy and low quality but Netflix and other video services can stream in 1080p? I thought this would get better when the system first came out, didn’t expect to see VR before it happened.
