May 16 marks the launch of our big-budget PlayStation VR shooter Farpoint, and from what I’ve played it’s set to be one of the medium’s defining games.

But the date will also see the release of the PlayStation VR Aim Controller, a sleek device that seeks to become the standard-bearer for VR first-person controllers. It’ll be available in launch bundles for Farpoint, and separately in limited supply.

Team Action Game Smashbox Arena Hits PS VR This Summer

Posted by on May 04, 2017

When we put on VR headsets for the first time back in 2015, we knew the world was about to change and that we needed to be a part of it. We started building Smashbox Arena as a way to explore spaces together. We added multiplayer support, started shooting each other, and then added a swarm of flying fish and people chasing us around a penthouse suite trying to shoot us. It seems like a strange origin story for Smashbox Arena, but it’s what started us along the journey to making the game, which, with the help of our fellow developers at Archiact, is finally coming to PlayStation VR in Summer 2017!

First Look at Farpoint TV Spot

Posted by on May 02, 2017

The May 16 launch of Farpoint is quickly approaching, and we wanted to give you a preview of a new TV spot set to air nationwide this week. This is the latest spot in our “Two Worlds” campaign for PlayStation VR. As the name implies, this campaign brings together the real world and incredible gaming worlds — putting the player directly into the experience.

If you’ve tried PlayStation VR, then you know how it can quickly transport you to another world. In the case of Farpoint, that means sending you to a distant planet filled with nasty space bugs (including giant spiders).

Infinite Minigolf Coming to PS4 and PS VR This Spring

Posted by on Apr 24, 2017

If you were playing games on PS3 back in 2010, you might remember a game called Planet Minigolf from Zen Studios. We did a lot of really cool things with that game for that day and age — we allowed users to create content and then share with the community, and we were one of the first games to allow game footage to be uploaded directly to YouTube. It has been amazing to watch how PlayStation, developers, and publishers have driven the evolution of the industry!

Zen would like to send a big thank you to everyone who played Planet Minigolf. An even bigger thank you goes out to all the players who took time to send us feedback and ideas over the years, which has helped to make an even better Minigolf game, launching this spring on PS4 and in amazing virtual reality for PS VR.
