I have a PSVR. What I don’t have is games for it.

    Lol. Yeah that’s pretty much your own fault because there is plenty to play on it. This, and last, month alone gave us three great titles.

    You must have absolutely terrible or incredibly niche taste in games then.

    Sorry to hear that…already have tons of videogames to choose from…Farpoint, Doom, Gran turismo, Wipeout, Harmonix vr, Resident evil 7, Skyrim, Superboy, Moss (amazing videogame), also they gave us free rush of blood which is a great game, bound, trackmania turbo or here they lie…lots of selected choices for every taste.

    Hey I like the looks of the new releases, but I would like beatsabor to be added if you can

    OklandPirate730 said:

    Skyrim VR, Resident Evil (if you can handle horror), and Farpoint (with the Aim Controller) will get you off to a great start.

    For costing as much as the system itself anyone who says they have a great selection of games is either 14 or doesn’t understand that 4 or so major titles is a joke for what was implied and advertised. Re7 is great. Granted any hardcore resident evil fan had already played through it 4 times by the time the VR launched.

    Doom I can’t comment on as it’s never caught my interest. Skyrim is ancient and half the time I wish I har the standard version instead. I won’t buy the move controllers for an extra $70 or $100, they should be included. I heard inpatient was very dissapointing. And borderlands? How about some creativity? Something exclusive that isn’t more or less a mini game? What’s next call or duty Black ops?

    I’m selling mine unless they put the games out there worth what they charge for the thing.

Is it the full Borderlands 2 game but in VR?

    cusman said:

    For $49.99 it better be

    It looks to be a modified version of the full base game with no multiplayer.

Korahn27 said:

Yay for Astro Bot demo. I know I’ll eventually get the full game but I just feel that MORE games need demos, especially for VR titles. Also looking forward to seeing what in my wishlist might be on sale.

I guess those who already have the Handsome collection won’t have Borderlands 2 VR for free or through a patch… It’s Skyrim all over again :(

    FuzionMaciek said:

    October 13th, 11:22 am

    It’s pretty much a whole different game in VR by what was announced so it only makes sense….

BeatSaber please!!!!!!!

ChrisCowan369 said:

When will we hear more about Blood & Truth? Easily my most anticipated PSVR game.

cusman said:

October 9th, 6:26 am

Disappointing that Borderlands 2 does not have the PS Aim Controller listed as supported. After playing Firewall Zero Hour with the PS Aim Controller and having full locomotion, I don’t want to go back to Dual Move Controllers and compromised movement controls.

clupula668 said:

That’s a really cool announcement about Borderlands 2, BUT I need to know two things before I consider purchasing it. First, can I use my old Handsome Collection save and second, can I play co-op with people who have the regular version? Those two are both kinda deal breakers. Still, I love the idea of being able to play it in VR (currently playing Zone of the Enders on it) and I hope they carry the idea over for Borderlands 3.

    FuzionMaciek said:

    October 13th, 11:20 am

    Most likely won’t be able to play with your old save but you most definitely won’t be able to play co-op with people at all since this is now a single player game ^^

maxvtec said:

October 9th, 8:35 am

Really? You guys are releasing paid DLC for Firewall before you even fix the game?

Im tired of host ended games, WTF is this COD4?

How about more game modes or fix the tracking, farpoint got it right!

Make the games best out of 5 matches waiting for the next match is longer than the actual match!

Add different game modes and Intead of having different play Lits add them all together and let us choose which game mode is next, this way we don’t have to split the community.

I dont have VR (yet?) but I was wondering if anyone knows about plans to release update motion controllers. Not a fan of PS Move.

PSVR is my favorite video game thing ever.

The PS VR Birthday Sale is nice. However, I hate seeing bundles that RIP OFF Playstation gamers.

The price of Star Trek Bridge Crew (which is discounted) plus Next Gen DLC (which is NOT) is cheaper than the bundle that’s on the sale! Come on! The bundle that’s being discounted is higher than the separate items!

I ordered the Moss/Astro Bot bundle yesterday for $282 taxes in, and already have one Move wand, and grabbed another used one for $15 at EB Games. Not a bad deal.. and the few games I still want are either on sale on PSN or covered by my staff discount.

This was such a great sale! I picked up 3 games and I wanted so many more! Keep up the great sales for VR, Sony, and keep bringing more quality content!
