That's weird.

According to lots of people, Sony's showcase was bad because a lot of the games shown are coming to Xbox

Now suddenly the Quest Gaming Showcase was amazing, even though most of the games shown are coming to Playstation.

I don't get it.

The fact is most of the VR games shown in that showcase are coming to PSVR 2. So doesn't that mean their showcase was bad?

Perhaps ppl find the Playstation showcase bad because the Vr portion lasted about 10 minutes and about 5 games (including Beat Sabers) versus 1 hour plus for Meta?
We saw several games announcement.
We saw Quest 3.
a deep dive into Asgard Wrath2 (not coming to PSVR2).

Yeah but VR is all Meta has to worry about. Sony has console owners out there. Sony has..
- 120 million PS4's out in the wild
- 40 million PS5's
- and only just under 1 million PSVR 2's

This opinion piece is more akin to comparing apples and oranges imo. Sony didn't have a VR showcase. They had a playstation showcase. Not even 1 percent of sony consumers have PSVR2. You could argue that is a reason they should have shown more. But then again, Meta probably bought up all the exclusive advertising spots for VR games because VR is all they have to worry about. Again, the vast majority of the VR games shown are coming to PSVR 2.

" The show will run a bit over an hour, focusing on PS5 and PS VR2 games in development from top studios from around the world."
Not my words
Now I couldn't care less that some of the games are coming to PS VR2, the point is they were shown (including Arizona Sunshine2) at an event that had next to zero visibility (have you seen the countless article about the Meta showcase on N4g?).

Unless Meta has paid an insane amount of money to each company for some exclusivity I doubt that a dev would have passed the chance to shine in THE PS SHOWCASE watched by millions in favor of a small check to reveal their game in a showcase that will be barely discussed.

Last but not least here's something to think about:
Wasn't the PSVr2 the headset made for CORE gamers that bring the POWER of PS5 to VR so we could have PC AAA VR gaming instead of cheap experiences made for a mobile phone chipset?

Yet today we are debating that these mobile experiences are also coming to PSVr2.

Yeah I hear you. But there is no debate on if they are coming to PSVR2, we know they mostly are. The debate was really, at least originally, just about if the Quest showcase "put sony to shame". I just don't think it did and I don't really think it's fair to compare the 2 in an apples to apples sense. There are other different variables for both companies. Imo, was their VR showing better than Sony's VR showing? Yeah I would rank it higher. Did they put sony to shame? LOL I really don't think so.

Sony's showcase lasted just over an hour, and had 2 consoles to show content for, one of which is only 3 months old... and people are complaining that the 3 month old console had less content to show than the 3 year old one? I see goal posts getting carried all over the field here. Not to mention announcing a new headset that costs $100 more than the last one (only $50 less than psvr2), and is still inferior to PSVR2 (No OLED HDR, no haptics, no Foveated rendering, no eye tracking).

Don't know what VR games you have been playing but I haven't played one mobile game on psvr or VR2 or PC VR for that matter

Psvr2 has been out since mid Feb this year. Relax man. It's already been saidbits selling better then the doom and gloom tried to report. Let it be out things take time.

Petebloodyonion117d ago

Nobody asks for or expects a 50%/50% show but Sony did say that the FOCUS would be on PS5 and PSVR2 games.
Last I checked, Focus means the center of interest or pay particular attention to.
So please tell me how Sony put focus on PSVR2 when the not focus PSVR had 7 NEW games announcements at E3 2017 (back when VR was nonexistent) squeezed between Spiderman, Horizon Zero Dawn, GOW, Detroit Become Human, and Uncharted legacy.

This year: 3 new games 1 patch and a reminder of a Vr mode for less than 6 minutes squeezed between Gran a Gran Turismo movie trailer ( 2:40 min) and tons of indie games.

And just a reminder for the next time you say Sony does not spend time on things that nobody owns

It wasn't hard to outdo the sony showcase. Hell... even the evercade showcase was better and that was only 30 minutes with new carts AND a new themed console being revealed.

shinoff2183117d ago

While I didn't care much for sonys showcase. Just only a couple really interested me. It is what it is. Its not like damn thats all sony has the next few years. .

You make a valid ass point

Trash article, trash title to get clicks. The reality, gamers don't care everything is selling good.

Abnor_Mal118d ago

I guess I could look into Asgard Wrath for my Quest2.

Almost thought it said Asuras Wrath VR

Gaming4Life1981118d ago

Asgards Wrath is one of the best vr games ever made and 2 looks even better. I can't wait to get my hands on it.

“with lots of new next gen additions.“

Lots?! I already finished it twice and I thought it was pretty much perfect already.


“PSVR 2 players will also enjoy foveated rendering as well as “smooth 90fps with no reprojection.” Which should make the game glorious to look at. It’ll also include expanded language support.”

It was 120 fps before without reprojection. I don’t get this bit.

Babadook72d ago (Edited 2d ago )

Didn’t read right. This is the original Red Matter (1) psvr version updated for psvr2. Whoops!

I was just saying how much I wanted it too.
