PlayStation 4 PRO PSVR Boost

Image
I have been reading a few websites and what they think of PS4 PRO and how it boosts PlayStation VR. (or doesn't)
I strongly feel that some sites, no matter what, are intent on hating the PRO.
I got the PRO on launch to go with my Sony 4K TV. Now as you may know, the Sony TV does a great job of up scaling the image to 4K with the built in K1 chip. So games looked great before. PRO boosts them with my TV to really nice prity graphics and text now really pops on games like Fallout 4. I'm not sure if Fallout has had 4K patches yet but on my TV it looks incredible.

Back to VR. Games simply look much, much better. Take VR worlds. I've read people say they see a slight difference. Rubbish. I've not played that game for two weeks and as soon as it loaded the difference was huge. The stone floor in the game lobby area is now crisp and the Dual Shock 4 is crisp with no jaggies.
I tried the shark cage as this was the first game I tried when I first got the VR. EVERYTHING is so m…

Just been prompted to download the mods patch for PS4.  Mods on PS4 were in doubt but a deal is done and you can now mod away.

Patch 1.8 also has quite a few bug fixes etc.

PlayStation 4 Pro Boosts PS4 sales. UK

Image
According to sales data the PS4 Pro has boosted not only visuals up to 4K but has also boosted PS4 sales by 204%.
Ironic as Pro boosts power by, yes X2. MVC have seen sales data that shows sales tripling from Thursday.
We have the Pro and think the upgrade is well worth it even owning the old launch PS4. I've noticed every game looks better on my 4K Bravia. 

Obduction announced for PlayStation VR

Image
Myst and Riven developer Cyan have announced some exciting news about there stunning looking first person adventure game.
The developer has been working on the project for 3 years and they are excited about getting out to millions of PS4 owners.

Obduction is due in 2017 for Playstation 4.

“We’re going all-in on VR,” said Rand Miller, CEO of Cyan, in an interview with GamesBeat. “And the PlayStation breaks open our availability as a much broader platform for us. I [was] amazed at how good this looks on a console.”


“Cyan has a history of creating meticulously crafted immersive worlds. VR feels like the ultimate medium for magically transporting players to new places,” said Miller. “We’re opening up the Obduction virtual reality experience to more platforms and going all in for the VR future. We have some optimisation to do for the PS4, but it is surprisingly capable as a platform.”
Looking forward to more news soon.



Call Of Duty Jackal Assault VR Review: Updated

Image
Update: In-game VR footage.


It come as a bit of a shock this week for Call Of Duty Jackal Assault to appear in the store for, get this......FREE.

Ok it's short but this was announced as part of Infinite Warfare, but to download for free without even owning the full game from the store is massive kudos to Activision.

In Jackal Assault you take charge of a state of the art fighter jet. As you sit in the cockpit you can look around the hanger and view your arms and hands moving back and forth as you move the thumb sticks on the dual shock 4.


After shooting out of the hanger you are treated to a short tutorial to get to grips with the controls. You use the thumb sticks as you would any FPS or flight game but the VR twist comes in the form of seeking out targets buy just looking for them and locking on then firing homing missiles with L2. Firing your main guns is with R2. You can invert your looking preference by simply pressing square.

Graphics are very good and sound is brilliant. I…

How We Soar For Playstation VR

Image
How we soar is a beautiful looking flight game that sees you riding on the back of a Phoenix.
 The game has a very authentic look to it. It instantly put me in mind of Tearaway combined with Flower. If the developer can pull off the same kind of fun found in those game in a VR world we could be in for a traet.

Some of the development team are of Crytek and the brilliant makers of Timesplitters games, Free Radical no less.

HWS is a Playstation VR game and to give you an idea of how it plays take a look at the below video. More news as soon as we get it.

How We Soar will launch this year for Playstation VR.

PlayStation VR Worlds Review

Image
Many gamers have made a royal fuss over this game arguing that it should have been included with the VR headset as demo tech. In one way I agree but hey, these things cost money to develop so I'm more than happy with the £22.00 entry fee I paid for the game. It costs that to go to see a movie with the wife without eating.....go figure.

I feel I've more than had my monies worth with my play time and more than that, I've had the wife on it, my son, friends and my Mum and Dad are coming for tea this week for some fun. PlayStation VR Worlds hits the nail on the head where it needs to. Something for everyone.


My first experience of PSVR was Ocean Decent. It's the voyage into the deep that is simply a Shark cage ride into the depths viewing all sorts of marine life with a heart racing attack at the end to spice things up. The demo gives you your first real spacial awareness feel of how far you can move before face-planting yourself on your front room wall. I tried to kick o…
