PlayStation VR 2 has had some major games arrive for the system since its launch in February. Quite possibly the biggest for 2023 is yet to come, in the form of Capcom’s Resident Evil 4 VR Mode. Initially teased earlier this year, we’ve now been treated to brand-new screenshots from the game.
The Tokyo Game Show (TGS) 2023 takes place once again in September. Capcom has just announced its lineup of titles which includes the upcoming augmented reality (AR) game Monster Hunter Now. For VR fans there’s one game to get really excited about, the Resident Evil 4 VR Mode previously teased during the PlayStation Showcase.
Let’s face it, virtual reality (VR) is still a long way off from competing with flatscreen gaming in terms of numbers. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be innovative whilst attracting blockbuster IPs to attract new players. Franchises like Star Wars, Ghostbusters, and The Walking Dead have all found a natural home in VR. But these all come from movie and TV backgrounds. When it comes to videogames making the leap into immersive gaming, none have done it on the same level as Capcom’s Resident Evil.
Did you watch Sony Interactive Entertainment’s (SIE) PlayStation Showcase? What did you think? Because from where we were sitting as VR fans, it felt a bit underwhelming. PSVR 2 was never going to be the main event at the PlayStation Showcase but even so, what we hoped to see, ne what we needed to see fell well short of expectations. Were they too high? Maybe. However, with the amount of PSVR 2 games coming soon suggested a stronger lineup.
E3 might not be happening in 2023 but that’s not stopping the industry roll out some big showcase events. Arriving way earlier than everyone else’s in Sony Interactive Entertainment’s (SIE) PlayStation Showcase. With a special event taking place next week focused on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation VR 2, it’s going to be an event PlayStation fans will want to watch. Nothing has been teased just yet, but these are the PlayStation Showcase PSVR 2 games we’re really hoping will make an appearance.
A week away from Capcom’s launch of the Resident Evil 4 remake and the reviews are in. It’s good, very good in fact, some outlets have even called it a “masterpiece”. This is slightly annoying because I wasn’t going to buy it. Not that I wanted it to be rubbish, just that I’ve played Resi 4 a lot, and it’s great. Therefore, can a remake really draw me back in? More importantly, can it do enough differently considering the excellent VR version?
