  • I was wondering whether a VR version would be a thing or not given how popular RE7 VR was. Good to see that PSVR2 is getting some support.

  • GoGreenAndGameOn

    Excellent! Well done SIE and Capcom! 👍

  • Will this be available to those of us that already own RE8?

  • More established games and no original VR games. Same issue that happened with PSVR1 and I will not be buying PSVR2.

    • You said you were selling your ps5, how would you get a vr2 🤪

      What’s your problem here? PSVR1 had plenty of original and amazing VR only games. PSVR2 will as well, but they arent going to announce those before a full PSVR2 event. They will hold onto them until the official full announcement. If you ignored all the amazing PSVR Only games then thats your fault.

  • Ooooh, I’m so ready to see the Dimitrescu family in VR. Buying a PSVR2 just to replay the castle over and over again.

  • This a smart easy launch game to get out.

    If the PSVR2 really works, i’ll buy a dozen.

    They need to do a lot to get hold outs like me, The first one is still a glorified gimmick to me with mediocre tech/performance and a lot of tech demos labeled as games. Still this is an obvious good option for the early adopters. They need to confirm the VR2 back compatibility that would help.

  • I have been waiting for that since the Village announcement, this is gonna be an amazing experience, thanks Capcom!

  • Exactly what I was hoping for. Bought it day one and yet to play it, hoping for a VR version after RE7.

  • I can’t wait!!!

    Will this be a free upgrade, paid DLC, or a standalone separate purchase?

      In the State of Play they said something like “more info on a release date and pricing soon” so I’d guess it isn’t free. Hopefully there’s a reasonably priced upgrade option for people who bought it already, sort of like the PS4 to PS5 upgrades.
      Should be worth a few bucks if they did a good job bringing it to VR and so far it looks like it’ll be amazing!

  • GreyMatterShades

    I’m glad I held off on playing RE8 for this. After playing RE7 on PSVR 1, I couldn’t go back to playing flatscreen horror games. The graphics look incredible. I can’t wait!

  • So psyched for this. Held off from playing in hope this would come out. Re7 on psvr was easily one of my fave VR experiences.

  • NinjaRemoteplay

    PlayStation VR2’s eye tracking is going to be dope with this game

  • I’m disappointed that it’s not being made for the original PSVR. I loved resident evil 7 in vr and wouldn’t play it any other way. At the price that I paid for the original vr I believe a game should be release for it. Even if the quality is less. I don’t feel it’s right the have to upgrade already to a PlayStation 5 to play a game that is available for the 4.
