Most gaming conventions will give the public the chance to try out gaming gadgets still under development, and it should come as no surprise that Sony used the PlayStation Experience 2015 as a place to show off the PlayStation VR before its release date for next year. There were a lot of terrific games put on display at the PlayStation VR exhibit at the PlayStation Experience, and here is some games that will be made available.
According to Engadget, attendees were able to sign up ahead of time to reserve a slot on the PlayStation VR experience, but a glitch in Sony's database erased all those reservations. The report was that a lot of the games that were on display at the PlayStation Experience looked like tech demos.
TechCrunch reports that at the PlayStation experience, Sony announced several games including:
Rez Infinite: This is a PlayStation VR port of music game that was released back in 2001 for the PlayStation 2.
Ace Combat 7: This latest installment of the Ace Combat franchise is exclusive to PlayStation VR.
100ft Robot Golf: In this game, the player becomes a 100 foot robot who is playing miniature golf in a city where everything is its natural size. Apparently, these robots don't care about the humans getting hurt as they bash through the city in order to get the best score. It is apparently a PS4 exclusive, and it's not certain how the VR element will make this game shine.
Eagle Flight: Developed by Ubisoft, this game looks like the player can actually be an eagle, and indulge in the majesty of flying. The demo showed eagles flying through Paris, France, with lots of famous landmarks and sudden shifting in flight.
Golem: This game allows the player to take the form of a giant made of stone or metal. The interesting thing is that the trailer shows a player actually playing VR to make the giant move. It's enough to get viewers interested in the story, for sure.
Job Simulator: The 2050 Archives: This is a VR game that looks like it was designed for the 1990s. The player is trapped in a cubicle and has red staplers, sort of like the hit movie Office Space. It looks just as humorous.
Modern Zombie Taxi Company: This game takes place after the zombie apocalypse, which means that there is a market for getting zombies across town. It looks like it is a game where VR takes the player behind the wheel and doing all sorts of things to the undead passengers as well as the infected pedestrians.
Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin: This doesn't sound related to the recent announcement of Psychonauts 2, and the trailer doesn't really show anything but the main character Raz putting on some VR glasses and posing like Palmer Luckey did on the cover of Time Magazine.
There is still no word on when the PlayStation VR will be released, but it should be sometime in 2016, provided that there will be a lot of decent games available for it, and there will be more titles than just those listed above.
