The news is that PSVR2 Wouldn’t be backwards compatible not at all surprising. The reality is that Sony’s new headset has a pair of brand new controllers, which use a completely different tracking system and button setup. PS move. Even the DualSense controller lacks the DualShock 4’s lightbar, so games like Astro Bot Rescue Mission aren’t practical.
So, what will become of all those great ones PSVR Sports? Well, we’ve been hearing for a while now that developers are working on ports of their best-selling virtual reality titles, and it’s something that YouTube channel PSVR without parole has confirmed Writing on Twitter In response to a disgruntled fan, it said: “Many devs are working on PSVR2 versions of their PSVR games as we speak!”
We believe the big question is how these re-releases will be delivered: should we expect free updates, discounted upgrade fees, or will we need to buy the games again? Presumably, devs will work on a case-by-case basis, and there will be no one-size-fits-all solution. Personally, we’re expecting at least nominal upgrade paths to be available for existing owners.
However, there is an opportunity to actually upgrade some great games. Beat Saber already plays great with PS Move Wands, but it will feel much more responsive with PSVR2 Sense controllers, especially when you add haptic feedback and other features; That’s the case with Blood and Truth, an ambitious action game that pushed original hardware to the breaking point.
We’re hoping Sony pulls back the curtain soon. While it’s great to see some hands on previews for the hardware this week, it still feels like the Japanese giant is holding back, doesn’t it?
