Sony no longer cares about the PSVR 2, and neither should you

It's a sad, disappointing story that could have been so much better.

Drop the price and a lot of people will care

Can't drop price when you'll lose money. Also to note people keep talking about wanting them to do a vita 2. In reality it'll end up the same way as this and the vita. Then the same people would B* and say the same thing.

I will care when they allow backward compatibility.. i do not want 2 headsets for my PS4 library

If sony wants psvr2 to be mainstream, then they drop the price. Obviously they won't do that and it will just end up dying like the vita.

StormSnooper14h ago

Not sure what this article is about because they just released a bunch of games for it…

Babadook710h ago

I’ll give you one word.

FUD.

They’ve been at that since day one. They want it dead.

Sony dropped the price for their summer sales event.

Nothing more annoying than articles that assume things, and articles that tell you what to think, and this one does both.

I don’t think a price drop will make a difference

We’re just not quite there with VR to make huge impacts

Everytime we do make improvements it’s so expensive that you’ll never make it mainstream

Just seems pointless

We’ve had cool stuff like Half Life Alyx for example but most people still would just prefer a more traditional experience with these games for mass appeal. I can appreciate the cool things VR does for a game like that but if it didn’t have VR and it was just a standard game as long as it’s top quality I’ll rate it high regardless.

I care as soon I can have one headset that works on both pc and ps5.

fr0sty10h ago

They have an adapter coming in August that enables just that.

My comment should of been written like this.

I care, As soon I can have one headset that works on both pc and ps5.

Admirable for persisting but after PSVR is it any surprise?

Half baked PC release feels more like an effort to shift dead stock then anything else.

Not enough people buying the hardware. The strategy from the get-go should have been these hybrid releases and as mentioned in the article, some form of wizardry like Praydog's UEVR mod for older Playstation titles converted into VR with very little effort once the software is sorted.

Basically a lack of vision from the corporate side.

Babadook710h ago

Praydog may be wizardry but the experience isn’t there.

As a long time supporter of VR the experience of VR2 is pretty awesome.

I haven't tried PSVR 2 but on your other point, I am gonna have to disagree with you there strongly. As a PCVR user (RTX 4090 PC), playing games that weren't meant for VR even with a gamepad is way better than playing flatscreen. I guess it boils down to whether you're one of those people who believe "It's not VR without motion controllers" or not. I always remind people who take this stance of when the CV1 Oculus RIFT launched without those controllers vs HTC Vive. Regardless of the differences, CV1 players still had a great time in VR, as they did with the previous Oculus DK1 & 2. Being immersed in the game world, feeling the sense-of-scale does not require motion controllers as a prerequisite.

Ummm, they’re releasing at least 4 high profile games for the headset in 2024 alone:
1) Metro VR
2) Behemoth
3) Aliens
4) War Thunder

That’s more games than SOME platforms release in an entire gen…. So how can you say Sony doesn’t care about their latest headset?

Fishy Fingers13h ago(Edited 13h ago)

"They're" not releasing any of those, all 3rd party. Has Sony developed or published a single PSVR2 game since 2023?

ocelot0713h ago

In that case then Sony no longer cares about the ps5 and neither should we right? Only released helldivers 2 so far this year. What's next astrobot in September?

The thing is. The PSVR2 can absolutely survive on just 3rd party releases. Ps5 has proved is this year. Just as Xbox did for the last 10 years.

Fishy Fingers13h ago

Odd, your supporting argument for proving Sony cares about PSVR2 is that they hasn't released much for PS5 either? Interesting take.

But there is a difference, we know PS5 games are coming, being worked both by Sony and their collaboration with other studios and there is a constant and consistent release of 3rd party. PSVR2, not so much.

Babadook710h ago

3rd party seems to be the strategy though. And it may well have been for the best. Sony had recruited a fair bit of support. And that proves the article here wrong.

MIDGETonSTILTS1710h ago

If it is superior experience to the Quest port, and comparable to the experience with a Steam headset… then I am happy.

Who gives a crap as long as there are games
