"Sony's Firesprite"

They're indie now...

If it's from the Liverpool studio & they're impressed with it themselves it's got to be good!

The dynamic resolution tech they brought in with Wipeout was revolutionary!

their new logo is reminiscent of the Piranha team colours and logo from Wipeout imho

I hope whatever unannounced project they have going for them is still moving forward. Would hate to see this studio go down the drain as that would be a huge blow to the PSVR2 headset.

PSVR2 already suffered a huge blow already with the closing of London Studio, anymore closures and the headset will just be good for PC users.

neither studios were making PSVR2 games. so it didn't hurt PSVR2 at all

Abnor_Mal86d ago

@Kane22 While correct neither studio was currently making a PSVR2 game, it still hurts the PSVR2 because now Sony has one less in-house VR developer.

Now we will never get a PSVR2 update to Blood and Truth, which some people were looking forward to hearing some kind of news.

Sony has reached an all time low this gen with their management and lack of 1st party games

PSVR2 is a failure.

No matter what the fanboys in denial say, the proof is there.

It wasn't a huge blow for VR games.

“PSVR2 is a failure.

No matter what the fanboys in denial say,”

No it’s not but your beloved Xbox sure is. PSVR2 is how I play almost all my content and it’s been a phenomenal first year. It’s not a failure yet and if Sony keeps it up it never will be.
