In June, we heard reports that Sony is targeting a late 2022 launch for its next-generation PlayStation VR (PSVR) headset. This alleged PSVR 2 will use two OLED displays -- one for each eye -- manufactured by display leader Samsung. Now, a new report is shedding some additional light on this high-end, next-generation accessory for the PlayStation 5. According to PSVR Without Parole, the displays will be HDR-capable and have a field of view (FOV) of 110 degrees. For comparison, the original PSVR has a FOV of 100 degrees. In addition, the PSVR 2 will have an effective resolution of 4000x2040 or 2000x2040 per eye with the Fresnel OLED displays. This is well beyond the 960x1080 (per eyes) resolution... Read more...
Back in February, Sony shared the first details of its next-generation virtual reality system that is headed to the PlayStation 5, but stopped far short of serving up any juicy nuggets. Sony said the next-gen model will enhance the resolution, tracking, and input, and connect with a single cable. Fast forward to today and some interesting details have emerged from the rumor mill. As the PSVR 2 gets closer to launch, Sony has reportedly shared a few specifics with its partners. It is said the PSVR 2 will get a resolution upgrade to 4000x2040 pixels, or 2000x2040 per eyeball. That would give it one of the highest resolutions among consumer VR headsets. Here's how it compares to some other models...... Read more...
In late February, Sony teased the next generation of PlayStation VR for the PlayStation 5 and a new controller. The new controllers' goal was to create a “future-proof technology” that was both ergonomic and improved the user experience. In a blog post posted today, Sony shows off the new controllers, and they certainly look impressive. Sony Senior Vice President Hideaki Nishino indicated that “the new controller that will play a critical role in providing gamers with the VR experience [Sony is] working to deliver.” Previously, the PSVR controller was a stick-style controller, which was similar in ways to a Wiimote. Now, that style has been thrown out of the window in... Read more...
Last week, Sony teased the next generation of PlayStation VR with DualSense technology, which got many gamers excited. As that new headset and technology is still on the horizon, current PSVR gamers want new games to play with their current hardware. Today, Sony brought back the PSVR Spotlight to announce six new games launching later this year. After The Fall From the creators of Arizona Sunshine comes a new fast-paced co-op FPS game called After the Fall. This game takes players back to an alternate frozen reality in 1980s LA to “pit you and your friends against a post-apocalyptic VR world in a raging fight for survival.” In the coming weeks, we can expect to see an all-new gameplay...

In 2016, PlayStation launched PlayStation VR, bringing virtual reality into many gamers' homes. Since then, Oculus and Valve have come out with new headsets, overall technology has improved, and the PlayStation 5 is now the "must have" console for gamers.

Sony is apparently in the giving mood, as some PlayStation 4 owners on Reddit can attest. How so? Apparently the electronics company has given a away a bunch free copies of Astro Bot Rescue Mission to registered PS4 owners, with "no strings" attached. The reason why, however, is not immediately clear (though we have a theory). "No catch, not strings... we're just giving you a free PlayStation VR game. Download the award-winning Astro Bot Rescue Mission... and blast off on an epic adventure to save Captain Astro's missing crew-bots. Use your exclusive voucher code at PlayStation Store now," the email reads. What makes this surprise gift so nifty is not just that it's an out-of-the-blue freebie,... Read more...
The absolute worst time to buy a game console is right before the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales arrive in force. Pulling the trigger prematurely is a surefire way of having buyer's remorse. So, if you're in the market for a new game console, wait a few days. There are going to be discounts, including a bunch of PlayStation 4 deals, some of which Sony announced today. Starting with the core console, Sony will be serving up a new Marvel Spider-Man Standard Edition PS4 bundle for $199.99 USD ($259.99 CAN). Not to be confused with the limited edition themed bundle, this version sports a jet-black console with a matching DualShock 4 wireless controller and a physical copy of Marvel's Spider-Man...

2016's DOOM pulled off what to some seemed impossible: it proved that series reboots can be amazing. The game was well-received on every platform it was released on, so it's no surprise that Bethesda didn't want to waste too much time coughing up another iteration. For VR fans, this latest one is going to taste oh-so-sweet. DOOM VFR is a standalone game, rather than an add-on for last year's release. Fortunately, it's not going to carry the cost of a brand-new game, with the preorder priced at $29.99 USD. We're not quite sure what VFR stands for, but if we had to guess, it could be "Virtual F***ing Reality", in the same vein of BFG (Big F***ing Gun), which heralds from the original DOOM. In DOOM...
