Pax East 2016- PlayStation VR Impressions

PSVRFeature

I’ve heard a lot of people give their opinion on Virtual Reality. A lot of those people haven’t even experienced VR and say it is just a gimmick. I’ve had the pleasure of trying the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and most recently the PlayStation VR.

This was not only my first experience with PlayStation VR, but it was my first experience with PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Move. I have to say I was pretty impressed with the PlayStation VR. I figured the experience would be totally different then the other headsets due to less computing power of the PS4 versus a High-End PC. There were some noticeable differences and I will get into that below.

The demo I played was Until Dawn: Rush of Blood. It is a on-rails shooter based on Until Dawn. It is very similar to House of the Dead and Time Crisis. You ride in a cart on a track and go through the demo shooting enemies, ammo boxes, security cameras and other objects. There are a couple types of enemies and a few different weapons. Overall it was a fun demo and I was glad that was the demo I got to try out with PlayStation VR.

Comfort:

The PlayStation VR was pretty comfortable. I wore it for about 15-20 minutes and it didn’t feel heavy or that noticeable after a few minutes. I was able to wear the PlayStation VR over my glasses with it still being comfortable.

Visuals:

It looked good. It had a 1080p resolution, but is split vertically to have 960 x 1080p to each eye. It works all things considering, but there is a noticeable difference compared to HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. That being said this is VR for a console so it is understandable that it is not on par with PC just like console games don’t have as good of visuals as PC games do.

Experience:

It took some time getting use to using the PlayStation Move as the controller. You have to keep your hands in front of you in order to see the two guns you have in the game. You have to move it around to aim as well as shake the controllers to reload. I also had to force myself to actually look around and shoot enemies on my left or right instead of looking straight ahead and turning the camera in a regular game. Also there would be times where you had to dodge certain items or get hit and lose health. It ran smooth for the most part. I did have a couple moments when the game froze for a couple seconds. I am not sure if that was game related or the hardware side.

22492780226_4a51ac3e96_zFinal Thoughts: I enjoyed PlayStation VR. I think this really could be a system seller considering the higher cost for the other VR Headsets. I also think PS4 owners will have a great time with the PlayStation VR if more games take the time and create great experiences like Rush of Blood was for me. I am definitely thinking about getting a PS4 a lot more since experiencing the PlayStation VR.

Q.U.B.E: DIRECTOR’S CUT LANDS ON CONSOLES

The physics puzzle favourite special edition hits Xbox One, PS3 and PS4 this July

 

Prague, Czech Republic 15TH July 2015 Grip Games, publisher of shooter smash  hit Tower of Guns, have finalised the console release dates for the much-anticipated ultimate edition of the physics puzzler connoisseur’s favourite: Q.U.B.E: Director’s Cut.

 

Q.U.B.E. launches on both PlayStation 3 and 4 in the US on 21 July, with the rest of the world following on 22 July, and will be available globally on Xbox One on 24 July. The WiiU version will follow in August. The price will be €$9.99 on all formats. On the PSN, the game supports cross-buy – purchasing Q.U.B.E on PS3 or PS4 gives you an instant free download on both consoles.

 

In Q.U.B.E (‘Quick Understanding of Block Extrusion’), you awake in a mystery-packed spaceship, your only hope being the clever manipulation of a collection of physics-bending blocks, to discover all the secrets of the ship, and find your way home. In addition to the existing first-person platforming challenges, 3D jigsaws, bonus pick-ups and myriad of hurdles combining precision, logic and quick reactions, this new edition adds exclusive new levels including Against The Qlock, with time trials to win you a place on the scoreboard for friends all around the universe to applaud – or challenge!

 

A cross-platform hit on its original release, Q.U.B.E has been expanded and enriched in this all-new edition published by Grip Games and masterminded by original developers Toxic Games, who brought in award-winning industry legend Rob Yescombe, writer for Crysis 2 and Alien: Isolation, and actors Rupert Evans and Rachel Robinson, to bring a whole new level of immersion to Q.U.B.E’s mystery-filled narrative.

 

Grip Games’ Jakub Mikyska said, “Everyone who became immersed in Q.U.B.E on its first release will be glad to return to face the all-new challenges, while gamers who have yet to experience the mysteries of Q.U.B.E have a treat in store.”
