It Has Begun, get Astro Bot for free - the (pre-loading) transition to PSVR2 (=Playstation 5 VR) ;-)

As some might know, these days Sony is giving away some major VR titles for free - due to their campaign:

- but most offered titles are VR titles, so I more consider this as a warm-up to Playstation 5 VR. All titles are free even if you do not have a console (like me), just make a PlayStation account and add these free titles to your library - so you can install them later. That's what I just did - and we're talking about significant VR games like:

 

 

 

 

 

 

You're getting 5 VR games for free, much like the free games some of us got with the Rift CV1 bundle - and I'd be greatly surprised if these will not later work with Playstation 5 VR. 

 

Thus I just added to my account:

Personally I believe PSVR2 (VR using PS5) could be the savior of high-end VR gaming, as I'm not fond of the bottom-end VR capabilities of stand-alone Quest 2 hmds (then again Quest 3 may change that - and a high-end $600 Quest hmd has also been hinted at). Still, right now several PCVR games - like for example Cosmonaut, Onward, Population One and Warplanes - have been severely cut down to fit low processing capabilities of Quest (2).

The great gpu powers of the PS5 may be a strong force pulling away from low-end VR games, and now may be a good opportunity to stock up some titles - even if it turns out you're never going to use them... 

 

Sony's offer closes April 23 2021. More info here:

I believe psvr2 is going to be incredible. There may be many triple a game vr  exclusives or at least many ported triple a games on the system. I enjoy my quest 2 but I think the psvr2 will be my number 1 go to especially with the duel sense tech going into the vr cintrollers.

I think there's a high probability to see real high-end cutting-edge AAA VR games with the PS5. The PS5 has the power to do just that.

 

Already now you can play PS4 VR (PSVR) games using PS5, so from the start PSVR 2 may have access to a great number of VR titles that may look and play much better using PSVR2.

 

The most important PSVR2 games will probably not be ports of existing VR games, but will be the Sony exclusive PSVR2 games. 

 

Made directly for the PS5 and PSVR2, we may be able to see games taking VR to the next level (or same level as Alyx and Lone Echo, which would be awesome too)
