We’re also very excited to reveal that we have officially sold-through more than 4.2 million PS VR systems worldwide as of March 3, 2019.

Table of Tales

Developer: Tin Man Games
Release timing: April 16, 2019

The table acts like a living pop-up book, shifting to accommodate new chapters of your adventure. Complete with a fully-voiced dungeon master companion, Table of Tales is a riveting single-player fantasy packed with strategy, intrigue, nostalgia and a ton of story. It also features a multiplayer ‘Heroes versus Villains’ mode. One player dons the VR headset as the Villain while up to three other Heroes pass-and-play using a DualShock controller, fighting for dominance in a turn-based battle to the death.

Jupiter and Mars

Jupiter & Mars

Developer: Tigertron
Release timing: April 22, 2019

Visit landmarks as you’ve never imagined them before, while exploring the world as not one, but two bottlenose dolphins—Jupiter and Mars—who have been enlisted by a global network of ancient whales known as the Elders to infiltrate abandoned, man-made bases, and shut down the remnants of this still-functioning technology that plagues the oceans. Rescue sea life trapped in plastics and oil spills, and meet fantastic underwater creatures along the way.

Dive deeper than ever before by obtaining power-ups that enable exploration in the mysterious oceans depths in either traditional gaming style or via PS VR, where you’ll see things in ways a standard television can’t convey, like an Elder passing overhead, or neon-lit underwater caves filled with jellyfish and other sea life.

  • Iron Man VR. That is all.

  • Mercenary09

    Pretty sure I’ll be picking most of these up. Man the next few months on PSVR are going to be great! Congrats on the 4.2 million sales as well.

  • Love to see all the PSVR love in today’s broadcast! And congrats on 4.2M, that’s huge! :-D

  • akuma666kaze

    Where is space channel 5 VR you said that it would be shown and yet there was nothing.

    • Mercenary09

      They said it will be at PAX East this week not in the State of Play video.

  • Dr_Awesome81

    A lot of great stuff in there, Sony’s VR support remains strong.

  • Everything sounds great, but I must admit that Blood and Truth, Everybody’s Golf and Skyworld will be day one purchase from me. Specially Skyworld, I’ve always wanted a VR RTS game.

  • I have been a playstation fan since PS1 I have bought all Sony’s consoles and uncountable games. I have been a psplus member for more than 5 years now.
    But one thing is sure, there are some products I won’t spend a cent. One of those products is VR. Simply put, VR games are too short, is a 20 to 40 minutes experience. The VR goggles cost almost the same as a PS4 console. I think, at least for myself, VR games are not for me. Is just a gimmick, to play casually during a party night, but definitely not something I would like to spend 400$. Sorry but that’s the truth. Is way to overpriced. During these days I was really waiting for good news from the playstation team. Maybe some new features for ps plus. Or promising new technologies to be included PS5. With all the support ( and purchases) made by fans during the course of this year 2019 and 2018 I thought “State of play” would be something like a big moment for Sony to show how the rule the market. But disappointingly, you threw all my hopes to the garbage. I would like to point some of your catastrophic mistakes in this State of play video:
    1.You invested more than half of the video in trying to sell VR games. Which you know it is not selling well.
    2.you are copying this idea from Nintendo’s direct videos. But you failed to show surprises or future AAA or new IPs projects.
    3. After Google’s announcements on Stadia and Apples… You should have taken the opportunity of the video to show fans why they should keep calm and trust in Sony and their solid position in the videogame industry,rather than that you showed a very weak state of play Full of Third party games sparkled by three main games that were actually announced a year ago:
    Concrete gene
    Days gone
    Mortal Kombat
    Not having enough with that you have the nerve to show a VR version of No man’s Sky, a game that was almost considered a fraud, scam, hoax,to all gamers.
    It’s not just about what you did show or didn’t is about the momentum you losed with this lousy “State of play” which will ripple against you in the near future. It is so sad that a company which has won the highest level of sales and console market penetration, in such an important moment for the industry you have helped build,to show a video of 20 minutes about, mostly, VR generic games, and some trailers repetitions. it’s really sad for people who pay ps plus and bought a Ps Pro, to feel that playstation may decline in the near future.

    • Mercenary09

      You evidently haven’t been paying attention to enough PSVR games if you think they are all 20-40 minutes long. Astro Bot Rescue Mission gave me 15+ hours of gameplay. Moss gave me several hours. The Mage’s Tale and The Wizards are both 10+ hour games. There are plenty of longer games on PSVR with even more to come this year.

    • TLDR: You can’t afford PSVR, and are salty about it. Gotcha.

      PS – PSVR is fun and really cool.
      Can’t wait for NMS, Golf, Blood, and Vacation!

    • Ahem

      Resident Evil 7
      The Persistence,
      Astro Bot Rescue Mission
      Wipeout VR
      Skyrim VR
      Borderlands 2 VR
      Apex Construct
      Rush of Blood
      Moss
      The Mage’s Tale
      The Wizards
      Rec Room (infinite play time & free)
      Creed VR

      As for No Man’s Sky, the free updates that came since then gave the game MORE features than what was originally promised and is now a great game WITHOUT VR even.

    • Very nice comment! Fully agree.

    • Your opinion is invalid and uneducated…the reason Playstation hasn’t announced much in the way of AAA PS4 exclusives is because the PS5 is coming next year and any announcements for AAA games like that will have to wait until the PS5 official announcement. For someone who “has been a fan since PS1”, you don’t seem to remember much about how the video game industry works, this happens towards the end of any generation.

      As for your PSVR trolling, it sounds like you need to try it before you splurt your uneducated opinion. There’s plenty of games beyond “20-40 mins” (other people have responded to you with lists). Playing games in VR is a completely different experience than on a TV, you won’t know unless you’ve tried it, and speaking of trying it, the PS store has shiteloads of demos so you don’t even have to buy anything to experience it, bar buying the PSVR unit combo itself. The PSVR unit combo itself has been heavily discounted on sale several times now (such as $250 CAD Christmas 2018) and for what you get (VR goggles, camera, games and wands) it is an absolute steal compared to any other decent VR system available (Vive, etc). If $250 CAD seems too much for all of that, then go on your local classified ads and pickup an even better deal on a used set there.
      You ended with “playstation may decline in the near future”…you do realise Sony has absolutely kicked ass against their competitors this generation, right? That’s quite an accomplishment and not a sign of decline in any ones book.

  • Looking forward to a few of these. Specifically, I’m most interested in Jupiter & Mars. Still wondering about Star Child. Is it canceled?

    • Devs have stated its still in development even though pre-orders were pulled.

  • Wow! That is an incredible amount of content over the next few months.

    I am going to be spending a lot of time with my PSVR, and I couldn’t be more happy.

    Thank You to Sony and All of the Devs for supporting this redefining format. These are the best times for gaming in 20 years.

    Now I just can’t wait for PS5 and PSVR2 to take VR to new levels like we saw PS2 do for 3D gaming. The future is so exciting.

  • GameOverGreggy

    CAN’T WAIT!

  • Bvieytes2908

    Estimado equipo de PS.
    ¿Es posible que se remasterice el juego de PS2 Shadow of Rome a PS4?
    O bien que puedan crear un juego similar a las características de este juego, creando un juego de aventura ambientado en la cultura Romana. Saludos!
