Ever wanted to see what PlayStation VR looked like on stage and wanted to see more games for the new hardware? Sony were happy to oblige during the PlayStation Experience.
Sony showed a tech demo created specifically for PlayStation Experience where two people took to the stage to play what looked like that Tron Disc sport. It didn’t work all that great, but as it’s a tech demo that nobody else will be playing as far as we can tell, we can forgive them for that.
The sequel to Rez, dubbed Rez Infinite a classic 3D on-rails shooter with techno vibes, was shown off for the first time in VR. It looks as gorgeous as it ever did before, but now running at a constant 60FPS. There are also more in the way of boss battles this time around, including a running man hellbent on trampling over the avatar.
Adam Boyes and Asad Qizibash then announced a bunch of PlayStation VR titles, including Eagle Flight from Ubisoft, which for those who are familiar with the Assassin’s Creed franchise will know that the Eagle features heavily. Now you can fly as one, or part of a flock with friends.
Santa Monica’s The Modern Zombie Taxi Co. was then shown off for the first time, which is all sorts of craziness. I’d best describe it as some weird PlayStation VR version of Crazy Taxi in first person, only somehow even crazier. Horribly unsafe was the main word that Adam Boyes used and I’d agree wholeheartedly.
Job Simulator is also coming to PlayStation VR, which has a robot set you tasks that he thinks is what doing a job is. Highwire Games’ debut game is also coming to PlayStation VR, complete with creepy gargantuan looming as he stomps through a ruined city. The game is called Golem and seems to involve a little girl controlling the creature in question.
As for games that will include VR specific modes – NoGoblin, known for Roundabout, have also been 100Ft Robot Golf, a game that’s so delightfully 80’s Transformers it’s hilarious. You’re not restricted to just walking around, as you can beat on the other golfers. There’s also VR support which they’ve teased beforehand by adding it in this particular segment.
Finally we have a trailer for Ace Combat 7, the next in the jet dogfighting franchise. The trailer shows a guy who is observing a jet fighter battle. With PlayStation VR support teased, it seems like a logical fit, as you fight against many planes in the skies.
Lots of detail for PlayStation VR’s lineup today, which given how important a good launch lineup is could be a deal maker or breaker for some. What do you think of the lineup that Sony showed off today?
