Miniature railway builder Toy Trains will now get a multiplatform launch in January 2024 for Meta Quest, SteamVR and PSVR 2.
This is so cool. I can't wait to get my hands on this.
VR developer Mighty Eyes has teased that development has begun on time-travelling sequel Wanderer 2: The Seas of Fortune.
Excellent! The first game is so good. Brilliant use of instant time travel for the puzzles w no loading made you feel really sucked into the experience. This will be a day 1 for me.
Marking its first anniversary Sony announced official work on PC support for PSVR 2. But wouldn't more games be better?
If it had PC support at launch I would have considered getting one over the quest 3. PSVR 2 has a more limited library than a PC so even as a PS5 owner it's a difficult decision, but not being tied to PS5 means I could get one for my PCVR library and use it on my PS5 for Resi 4/8, Gran Turismo and whatever exclusive comes out.
It makes since for Sony to bring everything to PC. They finally realized consoles owners alone can't support the company. And they are leaving a lot of money on the table.
Did you see the Spider-man 2 sales on PC vs PS5? 60K vs 10 million. They don't need to be on PC at all with their games. The only reason they are doing it is because of Herman Hulst being a PC fanboy.
They dont NEED to be on PC, and I love that PlayStation console is the focus of Sony. But on a game by game basis, they should consider PC release. For instance, with a service game, it doesnt hurt to be on PC as well.
@jingsing except that part where spiderman 2 isn't on pc yet... unless you're refererring to the insomniac leak which were not sales...
Nah we just dont care about Spiderman that much.
This comment makes sense to me. Since its the only headset that works on PS5, you would be killing two birds with one stone if you can buy one headset and user it on either platform.
my thoughts exactly. The VR scene is too niche and seperated. No universal library.
I don't really care for any PC games, none of those exclusives really do much for me... but I REALLY want to use my PSVR2 for PC VR apps, like Unreal Engine 5, so I can develop my own VR experiences, Microdose VR, that sort of thing.
Yes! I have Steam exclusive VR games like Alyx that I’d love to play with PSVR2.
I'm surprised Alyx didn't come to PS5 when the VR2 came out.
What a stupid question @article
I think wireless VR is a big deal on PC given that Quest is the most popular headset for PC these days, WIFI6E and WIFI7 are both available too. I don't see people committing the best part of a decade to a wired headset especially when Valve Deckard is now reported to be standalone. You can say what you will about the eye tracking on PSVR2 but considering how under utilized it is on PS5 I have the expectation that most PCVR stuff will probably ignore it too as most high end GPU's can probably max out the PSVR2 display. Apple, Valve, Meta are now all standalone. The sad truth is Sony made the wrong bet and I don't think they have confidence to make a PSVR2 Pro standalone without taking on the wrath of current adopters.
Keep waiting for deckard, meanwhile I'll be enjoying vr without a 1000+ pricetag.
I don't think the people making pc support are the same that develop the games. But what do I know.
1 VR device for 2 systems. $550. Hmm, let me think. Yeah that's the best VR decision. In fact, making VR devices that are platformcentric prevents growth of VR.
You still need to buy a $500 PS5 and a $1000 PC, getting a bit pricey.
You're missing the point of - not needing to buy a separate headset if you want to play VR on both.
Depends on if it wants to play in its own sandbox with consoles and claim it's territory or see what it can do against the Oculus and Vive. Less competition on consoles
As long as vr games still continue to come to the console, I don’t care, vr needs to be bolstered on all fronts.
Doesn't need it but it certainly makes me want to purchase sonys vr 2 since I own a gaming pc and a ps5. It's basically a no brainer now. Just got to save up the money.
Isn't a no brainer to just have a PC, why do you have a PS5 if their games are on PC?
2 reasons. They didn't announce pc games until way into the gen and I already had a ps5. Second final fantasy and other games arrive first on ps5. It shouldn't have been that hard for you to figure out. Also some companies are terrible at optimization for pc. Such games as wo long fallen dynasty and wild hearts don't play well on pc compared to ps5. Let's also be honest it's not like every game arrives on pc from ps5 right now
Ffs not everyone wants to deal with the headache of a pc all the time. If it weren't the case consoles wouldn't exist and everyone would have pc. No issue with sony putting games on pc. I'm still picking the ps, xbox , and switch. I don't want the headache. Now I will play less demanding games on my laptop when I get the itch like og fallout, encased, atom rpg, etc
Without a doubt, PSVR2 would be a much better piece of hardware if it also had PC support. It would sell more and in turn get more support on gaming. Honestly no idea why it wasn't from the start because its got to be a really low number system seller (due to total cost) if that's what the aim was
