  1. They all look quite good and just like anything new, VR needs plenty of diversity in games AND movies.

    But the quality needs to be good though.

  2. The first three look really interesting especially if you’re into natural history, which I am. The others look like they maybe worth a look too.

    It seems Sony want VR to be the next big thing and seem to be putting a lot of support behind the PSVR, which is great news.

  3. Are their any real games coming out this year still? Ones that aren’t for people with expensive hats?

    Because Sony seem to be doing a good job of not mentioning them at the moment. Or they’re all getting delayed. I assume an announcement of a delay to The Last Guardian is coming in the next couple of weeks too.

    • I saw a bit of promotional tat for TLG at EGX, no game details though. EGX was a little flat this year and the PSVR sessions there were, well, underwhelming… consider me unconvinced.

    • It was already announced TLG is delayed until late November. But yeah, it seems awfully dull in new exclusive releases.

      • That just means the announcement that TLG is delayed until 2017 has been delayed. Next couple of weeks, it’ll be “delayed until February”. Then it’ll be “we didn’t say _which_ February”. And eventually it’ll be “PS5 launch title in 2019”. Followed by another 6 month delay while quickly Googling “Duke Nukem Forever” to find out how long that took and when they need to release it to break that record.

      • I might be quite interested in TLG come to think of it, it’s been that long and interest had been lost, but now it’s the only game I can think of that might be interesting to play on my PS4. If they did delay it further, it would be a shame.

        Rumour has it GT Sport may come in February which doesn’t sound too bad a delay, and it fills up early next year with something a bit lighter. Quite interested in TSA’s “what’s coming in 2017” or some such article this year. Really haven’t kept track of things like Detroit or God of War 4, presumably they’re all coming 2017.

  4. Some of these are on GearVR.

    I cancelled my pre order though, I’m concerned by the bad resolution.

  5. Okay, only knowing that there are lots of these 360 VR things for phones that are flat images you just look around, can I be stupid and ask are these things all 3D?

  6. Not ready to lay down the moolah just yet but I’d love to try it out. I’m more interested in the experiences aspect than the gaming aspect if I’m being completely honest with myself.

  7. I’m quite impressed by all the content. VR diving at the Cocos Island must be great, and a lot of the stuff sounds good. Question will be, of course, how much it would cost on top of the gear to get access to these goodies.

    I’m increasingly tempted to get PSVR, still haven’t ordered. I may impulsively go down to the shop on the 13th, really early in the morning and try my luck, but I’m still on the fence.

    • I’ve preorder and some of these intrigue me, but I’m the same in wondering how much these will cost, it’s so close to release but i feel like i still don’t know how or where to get certain software and experiences! ?
      Why isn’t or hasn’t there been a specific PSVR section in the ps store for months now with prices and preorders?
