The Blade's Will Harrison: Astro Bot is anything but a gimmick. If anything, it’s as revolutionary as Mario 64.
And PSVR is bringing immersion to the forefront of gaming. Good job Japan Studios. Astro Bot is just the tip of the iceberg. Now let's see some Everybody's Golf. And whatever else you got.
Astro Bot is a masterpiece. They should release non-VR version since PSVR is allowed from 12 years and up. I'm sure kids would love it. It's a system seller for VR though, so they probably won't.
Such a well designed game. It's the same as most good VR games, you don't realise how good it is until you try it, you can't get that across on trailer on a flat screen. Need more places around for people to try it out.
VR is the only true next gen of gaming it seems like. The last time we had a true next gen was fro ps2/xbox to ps3/360. The leap in tech was huge. VR is showing that it can be that leap. I am excited to see what sony can do with their next iteration of it made in tandem with the ps5.
I concur. My girlfriend bought me PSVR Mega Pack for christmas. Seriosuly, I haven't played 'normal' games since I got it because they don't excite me anymore. VR is something else entirely. Experiences that didn't interested me at all on a flat screen gain completely different dimension in VR. Suddenly even stupid flying as a bird becomes fun as hell. Oh, and Beat Saber. This one is gold and a must have for any VR owner. Addicting as hell.
Agreed it’s definitely as revolutionary as MARIO 64. Sony really haven’t pushed this as much as they should. I’m sure if Nintendo had MARIO VR it would be getting a lot more love than Astro.
