It was really one of the only few that felt like a Sony game. The others felt like Sony just copying.

Definitely, and the Horizon Lego game actually looks crazy good as well, there were never a Lego game where everything on the screen are actually legos, it looks very impressive.

Looking forward to release.

Day one! So excited for this. Astro's Playroom rules and I'm so glad were getting a longer full-fledged adventure this time.

It looks like a sure fire win.

A few interesting details.

They overhauled the physics and graphics engine
This is Astro on steroids

They will go even further with dualsense than before by letting you feel smooth or rough walls not just the floors like before

No VR in this game because that is best when you design the game with VR from the beginning

60 person team made this with 4 people assigned purely to make new dualsense mechanics
