That would be awesome. It's a great game and I enjoyed it
Could be a big title that's planned to launch alongside PSVR2
I think you're right. And Valve already hinted at the possibility of playing in on other VR systems right after they launched the game, so I'd actually expect it to be announced in the near future too.
That is what I've been thinking. We already know they'll make killer Astro Bot games. Astro Bot 2 and Half-Life: Alyx would be a great start in a year or two. The PS5 actually has the CPU power to run a game like this. The huge CPU upgrade from a Jaguar (not great even when it was new let alone 7 to 8 years later) to current Ryzen tech should be massive for PSVR2, particularly for the necessary high frame rate and physics for games like this.
I agree, great game and getting it to most systems should be Valve's goal. Correct me, but I believe their goal was to expand VR
I got my first taste of VR with a discounted PSVR bundle along with a bunch of games on incredible PSN Store sales. I have a PC and PS5; I'm putting off upgrading to a better headset until I know more about PSVR2. I'm expecting the PSVR2 to be a pretty good value, but I need to see the details. The controllers look very nice. I'm hoping for HL: Alyx, Astro Bot: RM 2, and maybe a VR Horizon game.
Who knows, that would it be a very sturdy door.
I want valve to like Sony as much as the next fan but valve has a history of anymosity toward Sony consoles
you mean that time when Gabe Newell went on playstation stage at E3 to announce portal 2 for playstation?
The same E3 where he was introduced to Kevin Butler, VP of Sharpening Things backstage. Damn that was a good E3
Hasn't every Valve game been on a Playstation console bar artifact and Dota 2?
The argument here is invalid. On one hand extreme Sony fans say, "Exclusives are good and why would Sony put its exclusives on other platforms". Then, on the other hand they seem to think that everything not on PS5 should be a third party game on PS5. Extreme Sony fans cannot have it both ways. Valve is a competitor with Sony indirectly. Steam is a platform for gaming just like the PSN and PSNow is a competitor to Steam's Cloud Play. If Sony fans want Half-Life Alyx on PS5 then TLOU, Uncharted, Ghosts, Demon's Souls, etc. should all be on Steam.
How is it invalid when just about every valve game has been multiplatform? And with PSVR it only makes sense to put it on there, unless they really want to leave a bunch of money on the table.
@isarai You seem to be out-of-date on knowledge about Valve games. Valve's last console game was in 2013. Counter Strike Global Offensive. Since then they have avoided consoles. More and more, the big companies are competing with each other because both are expanding into each other's ecosystems. The companies are choosing to leave money on the table. Sony is doing so as well with their exclusives. No one can tell me that games like Uncharted, TLOU, Ghosts, Demo's Souls, Bloodbourne, etc. would not sell well on PC, XB, and Nintendo platforms. Sony is being strategic about what platforms they put their games on just like all the other vendors are. I think it is wrong, because they are forcing hardware sales on people that want to play certain games, but Sony is the king of exclusivity and everyone else is following the leadership they are evangelizing.
Do you think Half Life Alyx is exclusive to the Valve Index?
@generic-user-name No, of course not. VR has been added as a Windows platform capability so there is no reason to make it exclusive.
Yes please that'll be goat.
Would it really be that hard to animate some arms to go along with the floating hands? Even if they were janky it would be be less distracting than having them just floating there.
No, when you're in vr it's the inverse. Literally all vr arms implementations I came across didn't match my real arm positions most of the time, and took me out of the game way more than floating hands...
I've played VR. I find the floating hands distracting.
@HusbandAndWifeGaming - and seeing your body contort into unrealistic positions is distracting too.
If half life and gta 5 vr version were available day one for psvr2 it would be a licence to print money for all concerned.
Half life alyx was amazing and yea sony should try and get it for psvr on ps5.
Vita lost support, PS Move barely had support and the original psvr never had support. Sony wasting money and time on something they're gonna drop a year after release.
Move didn't have support?? You need the things for psvr. Psvr didn't have support? Sony released a fair few titles as has many 3rd parties. Even Microsoft's own I'd software is releasing a game next week for it. They have sold way over 5 million headsets and over 21 million games for it. But sure it didn't have support lol clown.
And when you think psvr what games come to mind? Astro bot annnnd... that's it. What about ps move? And we all know that sony left the vita out to die. Sony don't support their own side projects
He's made his mind up and clearly has zero knowledge on the matter. Just last week Sony announced 6 new games for PSVR in one day. SIX! And they look great too, especially Fracked!
Ok I'll go threw the titles I currently have on my external that are VR compatible. Astro Bot Arizona Sunshine Walking Dead Onslaught Wipeout No Man's Sky GT Sport Dirt Rally Doom VFR Hitman 3 (includes 1 and 2 as well) Fire team Bravo Bravo Squad Rick and Morty Accounting+ Trove Saves The Universe Resident Evil 7 Farpoint Elder Scrolls Skyrim Games I want to play: Moss I expect you to die I expect you to die 2 Star Trek Star Wars Squadrons Borderlands 2 Doom 3 (out next week) Walking dead saints and sinners L.a noir Dreams Beat saber Blood and truth Budget cuts Ace combat 7 Oh yer but sure Sony don't support vr lmfao again what a clown you are.
Ocelot, don't even bother trying. He's just spewing utter nonsense. Over 600 games and experiences and he only mentions one. He's just showing ignorance on the subject of PSVR and some of its hottest games. My guess is that Alyx is a first year release on PSVR 2. Along with other surprises.
@ApocalypseShadow You are correct I shouldn't. But naming just a small handful of games just makes me excited for the future of VR and also proves how wrong he really is.
From your list of over 600 games we have stuff like.. The 100 Wonders of Japan: Fall Leaves Changing in Kyoto The 100 Wonders of Japan: Fuji - The Holy Mountain The 100 Wonders of Japan: Galapagos - Iriomote Island The 100 Wonders of Japan: Himeji Castle The 100 Wonders of Japan: Hokkaido, Biei The 100 Wonders of Japan: Takachiho - Mysterious land VR Apocalypse, VR Furballs: Demolition, VR The Diner Duo, VR Figure from Shining. ETC... For a fanbase that talks about EXCLUSIVES all day everyday.. I fail to see any must have exclusives let alone AA or AAA FIRST PARTY title from Sony. Not some tacked on mode, or $3.99 experience. 5 million sold in 5 years with over 115 million ps4s. Over 110 million people don't give a damn about it lmao
So you can list the games you feel are bad, no problem at all, but when it comes to naming the good ones, you come up with nothing? Just stop lol, your knowledge is showing🤦♂️ or should that be fanboy🤔🤷♂️
More ridiculousness. He named off multiple games that aren't tacked on modes or $3.99 experiences. And since you can't discredit him, you jump to sales against a runaway hit like PS4 that was already at 53.4 million sold about the time of PSVR release. And secondly, it's something you have to try that was more than the console at $400-$500. Are $60 games failures if they don't sell 115 million? Obviously not. You played yourself with a foolish comparison. Since PSVR was profitable, and sold millions of games that were profitable, that's why a new headset is coming. What other ridiculous deflection are you hoping to pull now that ocelot made you out to be a lier about something you know nothing about? Or you do know. But you want to be that guy that embarrasses themselves.
I'm not clued up when it comes to PSVR support, but i'm pretty sure there are quite a large number of games available for it. As for wasting money? Not really, you need a PS4 console, in order to use PSVR, so they get a sale on both.
Why are you posting cringe bro? PSVR has gotten consistent support from Sony who have teamed up to make many 2nd party titles for it like the excellent Firewall Zero Hour, Farpoint and Iron Man (wow, an exclusive Iron Man game!) Then you have their own classic first party stuff like Blood and Truth and Astrobot and on top of all that you have fully supported modes in AAA titles like RE7, NMS and Hitman Trilogy, the best way to experience those games. Anyway, read a wikipedia page or some shit dude, your ignorance is showing.
TRrde access to that with Blood and Truth. That way both platforms get a great game.
Either this or please allow one vr headset to be used for pc and playstation. I'd rather not have to purchase two sets for both ecosystems.
Would this be categorized as port begging? /s
I don't see why not. It's a great game and Valve said they'd consider other systems, so it seems fair enough.
That’s what would sell VR to me
its really not as good as people say it is.
This is all well and good, but a lot of PC VR gamers would have loved to play Resident Evil VII on PC VR. Oculus even called out to Capcom regarding a possible collaboration. But NO. Didn't and never will happen. Sony loves keeping its exclusives because it financially makes them viable. PC should do the same. As a user I think an open market suits everyone better but it seems these VR manufacturers have different ideas, or sit behind the idea that exclusives sell VR headsets.
I think valve wouldn't mind the extra sells. So it is very likely that Alyx will be coming to Psvr2.
I can wait to play this floating hands game.
The O.G. PSVR outsold other headsets when it was released....I would think Valve would be keen to get their VR game on Sony's next VR platform, and vice versa.
I think the right question is: Does Sony want to do this in the 1st place?
Valve need to bang down sonys door to get it on what will be the biggest selling vr headset ever.
NO. Sony needs to take the best ideas from alyx and add in some of their own innovation and create a fresh new product that every other console and pc players want.
Half-Life 3 confirmed.
sony and valve dont have a relationship at all :-( so i dont see this happening
No. Valve has no respect for Sony and Gabe Newell hates Sony. Always have, always will.
Didn't he hate Xbox for not allowing crossplay back in the 360 era and teamed up with Sony to allow exclusive cross platform play for co-op on Portal 2? Not to mention what Valve game has come to Xbox that hasn't also come to PS?
