Sony reveals name of new virtual reality system and Horizon gets the virtual reality treatment
From those lists, my desert island game is Horizon Forbidden West, and this week Playstation revealed that the franchise is going to appear on the next generation virtual reality system, which Sony has named PS VR2
Here’s Jan-Bart Van Beek, a studio director at Guerrilla, to introduce the game.
PS VR2 will deliver a 4K HDR experience, will connect to the PS5 with a single cable, and has eye tracking built in. The PS VR2 Sense controllers have a six-axis motion sensing system, position tracking, and the haptic feedback and adaptive triggers that PS5 players will recognize from the DualSense controllers.
Minecraft is not only one of the most popular games ever created. It’s also one of the most watched.
YouTube recently revealed that the game has had more than one trillion views since it first appeared on the video streaming platform in 2009.
There are more than 35,000 channels about Minecraft, with creators coming from more than 150 regions of the world, including Canadian med student, aCookieGod.
