Robinson The Journey PSVR Launch Trailer

Image
The wait is nearly over for what is looking likely to be the jewel in PlayStation VRs crown. You play a young boy stranded on a dinosaur infested planet. To say the game looks lush is an understatement. PS Pro support is also on the cards. We'll have Pro in the next 10 days so we'll be bringing you a full review of the game soon.





Until Dawn Rush Of Blood Review

Image
PlayStation VR is here. With it comes probably one of the biggest, if not the biggest line up of games any launch has seen. So how do you choose what games to get, what will make you feel ill? if any.
I went for VR Worlds and Rush of Blood, an Until Dawn spin off. Now I remember seeing a big Internet games site saying they'd played Until Dawn on PSVR but it wasn't the game you were hoping for. This statement was so far off the mark, in fact Rush of Blood is not only brilliant, it's my first AAA VR game and the game that in fact made me happy about my £349.00 investment. And you know what? It cost £12.00.

I know what your thinking, a £12.00 game justifying a £349.00 purchase? you're mad.
Maybe I am or maybe the developer just nailed that feeling I wanted, that, 'I'm in the game feeling.'



When you boot up the game you're greeted to a slow move down a track up to the title screen. This was the first time I yelled out in VR. My wife sitting behind me start…

PlayStation VR Review. Reality Check!

Image
I remember sitting in a black box in an arcade with a scope in front of my face while roaming about on a map in a tank made up of neon sticks blowing up other neon stick tanks. This game was Battlezone, the arcade was at Llandudno pier, I was 11 or so. Yes that's (cough) 35 years ago.....maybe? This was my first go at a VR type game.


2016. October 13th. PlayStation VR is here. I pre-ordered in March when it first went to press. Over the few months that passed I avoided going to any of the pre-shows of PSVR, why? I'm one of these that want that, "first time" in the quiet of my own surroundings. One thing I wish I'd not done and that was watch to many VR demos on YouTube. You see VR is totally different in reality. Many users have had issues with the image like myself, in fact it took me playing with the HTC Vive before I realised that the image is all part and parcel of the VR headset.

First and formost the headset itself is a design marvel. Putting it on for the…

Playstation VR Blurred Graphics problems. UPDATED 30/10/16

UPDATE: Expectation is a strange thing. Seeing many YouTube videos of VR games is not a great idea. Vr in reality is totally different to what you see on the TV. On paper an OLED 1080p screen sounds all nice and crisp but when in front of your eyes and massive you can understand why some people, like me, can be taken back with what they see. Once I got used to it though and a week or so later I'm now blown away.
Once I'd got used to the image I was hooked by what I was doing in this new games space. I've had two headsets and they are identical. I've also tried the HTC Vive now, imo the PSVR is overall much better.

Origonal Story:

Many Playstation VR users are reporting very blurred images with the new VR headset..........including me.

I was very excited to try VR for the first time only to be very disappointed by what I was seeing. (tried phone VR in the past) I tried the Shark game in the VR Worlds game only to be greeted by a very blurred shark cage and what looks lik…

Playstation VR is here, we have it.......any good?

Playstation VR is here. Over the next few days we'll be road testing the new kit to give you the pros and cons of Sony's new tech.

Playstation VR Star Wars Greatness awaits

Image
If this doesn't sell Star Wars fans the idea of VR......Nothing will.
X-Wing will be a download for all those lucky Battlefront owners that take the plunge with PSVR this Friday. It's not clear if this will be out Friday or when the new movie comes out.

Skyrim and Fallout 4 to get Playstation Pro 4K support....

Image
.......and Mods.
Did you really think Sony would let Microsoft get one over on them? For me it's the PS Pro support that gets the thumbs up over mods. I was excited to see Elder Scrolls Online getting the 4K treatment, but Skyrim and Fallout, yes please.



Skyrim will have mods from day one (28th October UK) and Pro Support where as Fallout will follow with an update.
Hats off to Bethesda.


Playstation VR is nearly here.

After a long break from the website I'm pleased to say that I'm back.

VR is going to shake up games and who knows, change the way we play and think about games.  VR is nothing new but is has had a very slow start on PC. But this is PlayStation. Over 40 million gamers are able to jump right in just needing the PS camera and VR headset to get started. Are you ready?

We can't wait. Reviews to follow.
