NEED A GREAT VR GAME? GET ‘BEAT SABER’!

While I don’t own a VR-set, I’ve seen people on some random online places asking for advice of what to get for their first PSVR, Oculus, HTC Vive and so on.

A couple of months ago, I’ve tried a VR game for the first time and that game was ‘Beat Saber’.

Before I continue, let me tell you this: I have no prior VR gaming experience, and the ONLY prior VR experience was this.

Anyways, at this event, me and a bunch of other people, tried the game. If you remember the ‘Guitar Hero’-games, you may know the mechanics. You hold two controllers that serve as ‘sabers’, and you have to time your hits to the right pace AND from the right angle. It was fun.

‘Beat Saber’ is described as “a virtual reality fitness/rhythm game” and you’ll be amazed!

And seeing the YouTube videos, it seems like it got a big and growing community with lots of new content available for everyone.

Now, it takes time to master the skills but it’s fun and engaging. It should fit the whole family. You’ll face great challenge even after hundreds or thousands of played hours with up to five levels of difficulty, starting from Easy all the way to Expert+.

The game supports most virtual reality headsets, such as PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Oculus Quest.

Investing in a VR-set or just got one? Get this, you should. It’s an immersive experience that cannot be described.

‘ROCK BAND’ Goes VR

Harmonix‘s Rock Band is coming to Oculus Rift on March 23. This may be the game that could make me change my mind about VR. I hope that eventually it will find its way to PSVR, as I would rather get a PSVR than an Oculus.

PSVR Sells More Than OCULUS RIFT And HTC VIVE Combined In UK

While there are no official figures, data tracker GfK has worked out that PlayStation VR about to sell more units than the combined forces of both Oculus Rift and HTC Vive here in the UK.

“Early UK sales of PlayStation VR indicate it is already approaching the combined installed base of HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. Initial PlayStation VR game sales are also positive with eight or nine boxed releases featuring in the Official UK Top 40 games chart (week ending Saturday 15th October 2016),” said GfK director Paul Simpson.

“Our survey shows that initial reactions from owners of PlayStation VR are positive,” he adds. “Some told that the experience surpasses expectations, and for many it is a talking point with their friends. Others believe the VR gaming experience to be a solitary one, but have been pleasantly surprised by social elements of VR gaming.”

This should not come as a surprise keeping in mind that PS has a stable fanbase in UK (around 3.5 million PS4 units sold).
