Here’s a look at almost every confirmed PSVR 2 title announced so far

This week, Sony announced the release date and steep price tag for its new virtual reality headset, the PlayStation VR2.

As a dedicated headphone chief, I figured Sony would be aiming for a price somewhere around that of a PS5, so the numbers it quoted as the pre-order price didn’t shock me too much. I’ve used the PSVR 2 in the past so I know it’s a high quality piece of kit and with the addition of the Sense controllers in the package that high price seemed about right to me.

What I didn’t like too much, however, is the fact that the base PSVR 2 bundle appears to contain literally no games. At the time of this writing, Sony hasn’t mentioned anything about a demo disc or a PlayStation VR Worlds-style download code included in the base pack packaging as was the original PSVR. With the understandable but disappointing lack of backwards compatibility for the original PSVR library, this can only be seen as an inconvenience for any potential new adopters of the technology.

How can Sony hope to attract a new audience to PSVR 2 if it’s so expensive and there are hardly any games to play on it at launch? This was one of the questions posed by the Eurogamer press team when I joined them on their Newscast this week and honestly it was a good question.

So far, the only launch titles to have been officially announced are the PSVR 2 exclusive, Horizon: Call of the Mountain, and an updated port of the Quest 2 game, Cities VR: Enhanced Edition. It’s hardly a range worth risking nearly £600 if you’re shelling out for the Horizon pack, so I thought, “what else Is Does PSVR 2 have it all right now?”

Here are 13 of my most wanted confirmed PSVR 2 games. These are top quality and they will help you get your money’s worth out of the helmet.

That’s where this week’s episode of VR Corner comes in, which you can watch on the video player at the top of this page. It’s got 47 confirmed PSVR 2 games in development for the headset right now, and that should give you an idea of ​​what else is coming to PSVR 2 at some point in the future (and that’s not just shooting games this time, I promise).

These 47 games vary in quality of course. Some of them are newly announced PSVR 2 exclusives like Rush of Blood’s sequel The Dark Pictures: Switchback VR, while others are a bit more like generic VR shovels.

If you also include the 13 high-quality games I listed in the embedded video a few paragraphs above those words, that brings the number of PSVR 2 titles confirmed so far to around 60. That’s a number pretty decent if you ask me, especially since I hope that number increases as we get closer to launch with PSVR 1 game developers announcing PSVR 2 updates for their titles.

So while the future of PSVR 2 may not be as bright as it could be right now in terms of launch titles to play, there is hope for an animated library to come. the future. And hey, at least it will give you time to save some money if you decide to wait until there are real games to play on it!
