Nintendo needs to ride this momentum going into 2017. We can’t wait until January 12th!
Here is the announcement trailer for NBA 2KVR. It seems like an interesting game so I am wondering how this one will shape up. We here just got a cheap set of VR goggles for my iPhone (video on my YouTube incoming) and we are liking it thus far. I have yet to test out PSVR although I am hoping to get my hands….er head on one soon.
Check out the announcement trailer for NBA 2KVR and let us know what you guys think. Enjoy.
In case you missed it, Resident Evil 7 will be getting a pretty sweet collectors edition. The Resident Evil 7 Collector’s Edition is priced at $180 and will include the following content (also see image above):
Resident Evil 7 biohazard Base Game
Mansion Music Box (8” Tall) that plays a sample of Aunt Rhody with accompanying LED effects.
Dummy Finger 4G USB Drive
Exclusive Metal Case
VHS Tape Box
Looks pretty spiffy if you ask me. I love these “over the top” collectors editions… Just don’t have the money.
Watch Part 1 of this 3 part video series (2 and 3 below) that will take you all the way from PS VR set up, to play. If you’re like a lot of gamers out there, PSVR will be releasing and you’re going to need to set up this bad boy… Check out the PSVR setup and let us know if you plan on throwing down 400 big ones for the VR peripheral.
Those who are dying (see what I did there) to play Resident Evil 7 better plan on picking up a PSVR, as the game is set to be exclusive to the system/peripheral for the first 12 months. This seems to be quite a scary game on its own so it should be doubly freaky in VR. PSVR is set to launch this month for the PS4 while Resident Evil 7 will arrive in 2017. Let me know if you plan on picking up a PSVR.
