@ USSjDomon

Are you serious? The previews talk about the series going back to its roots, offering a brand new perspective for the series, and also providing what is REAL horror. I mean did you have this level of angst when Resident Evil 4 shook up the series, provided an influential masterpiece for gamers, and did very well for Capcom?

I think you're barking up the wrong tree, if you're trying to group RE7 in with 5 & 6.


Resident Evil 4 Remake isn't the only way to enjoy this classic

Resident Evil 4 Remake isn't the only way to enjoy this classic as Capcom's 2005 has also made it into virtual reality.

Yeah buts that’s not as accessible. Idk how many people would pay for Oculus Quest 2 just go play RE4 in VR as opposed to playing it on a platform they already own

CrimsonWing69460d ago

I’m not going to lie, if you’ve played RE4 in VR it is an absolute game changer. One of my favorite VR experiences, too.

I’m sure it’s a great experience but it alone isn’t worth the price of admission for most consumers


5 Best PSVR Games That Need PSVR 2 Ports

Alongside big hitters like Horizon Call of the Mountain, Gran Turismo 7 and Resident Evil Village, PSVR 2 is already home to some of the best PSVR games and experiences, like Moss and Tetris Effect. Better yet, some ports like Job Simulator, Song in The Smoke and Pistol Whip offer free cross-generation upgrades if you bought them for the original PSVR.

There are many PSVR titles we’d love to see leap onto PlayStation VR2. Here's our pick.

True indeed. Great picks. I'd also like Raw Data remastered, LA Noire, Iron Man, Arch Angel, Mortal Blitz and many others. We'll see what gets ported over time.

SullysCigar479d ago

There are so many that would benefit from a PSVR2 facelift with all the bells and whistles.

To add to your list, I'd also like: Hitman 1-3, Xing: The Land Beyond, The Room: VR, Red Matter, Farpoint, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, The Persistence, To the Top, Until You Fall, Arashi: Castles of Sin, Sniper Elite VR, Fracked, Dreams - I'm sure there are loads I've forgotten!


To add a sixth game to that list I need on ps vr2 is Vader Immortal

Abnor_Mal479d ago

Did anyone ever play Robinson: The Journey?

Oh and to add to the list I’d definitely put Bravo Team up for porting to PS5. I don’t understand why that game got so much flak when the only problem was the camera zooming out from first to third person when you had to move locations.

Other ports I would like to see wake its way over at some point would be DWVR, Immortsl Legacy, The Mages Tale, Killing Floor Incursion. Never played although I know I own them Unearthing Mars1/2 and Budget Cuts. Doom and Skyrim VR I’m not holding my breath on but would be nice.

EverydayJoe477d ago

I did. Was a beautiful game for its time.

MIDGETonSTILTS17479d ago (Edited 479d ago )

I would just add SUPERHOT.

Great list otherwise.

I’d easily pay $10 for an upgrade for any of these games, or full price for a vr2 version if I don’t own it yet.

Idc if the games are brand new, just as long as they work for my new headset.

Please update and take my money, devs 💰


Resident Evil 7 VR PC Gameplay now with Motion Controls - PrayDog's May 2022 Update

CG writes: Developer PrayDog has worked tirelessly to develop his RE Framework VR mod which converts various Capcom developed titles on PC to VR. He offers this for Free which is highly commendable. His mod has previously worked well with the Resident Evil remakes (RE2 and 3) alongside Resident Evil 7 and Resident Evil Village even adding motion controls in some instances. Today, Praydog officially released his latest version which improves the VR motion controls in Resident Evil Village as well as adding motion control support to Resident Evil 7. We’ve played both games where you can view our more recent Resident Evil 7 VR PC gameplay impressions video and our older Resident Evil Village/Resident Evil 3 Nemesis impressions.
