The news is that PSVR2 will be must not be backwards compatible not entirely surprising. The reality is that Sony’s new headphones have a pair of new controllers that use a completely different tracking system and button layout. PS Move. Even the DualSense controller doesn’t have the DualShock 4’s light bar, which is why I like games Astro Bot Rescue Mission they can’t live either.
So what will happen to all these adults PSVR games? Well, we’ve been hearing for a while now that developers are working on ports of top-selling virtual reality titles, and this YouTube channel PSVR without parole confirmed. Writing on it Twitter in response to a disgruntled fan, he said: “Tons of developers are working on PSVR2 versions of PSVR games as we speak!”
We guess the big question is how these re-releases will be delivered: should we wait for free updates, discounted upgrade fees, or buy the games again? It’s likely that developers will work individually, and there won’t be a one-size-fits-all solution here. Personally, we hope there will be at least nominal upgrade paths for existing owners.
Some of the best games have the ability to really improve. Beat the saber already plays pretty well with PS Move sticks, but will be more responsive with PSVR2 Sense Controllers, especially when they add haptic feedback and other features; refers to the same thing Blood and Truthan ambitious action game that pushes the original hardware to the breaking point.
Hopefully Sony will pull back the curtain soon. While it’s great to see some hands on hardware this week, it still feels like the Japanese giant is holding back, doesn’t it?
