It’s been a quietly exceptional year for PlayStation VR, but there’s still one big game left in its arsenal: Borderlands 2 VR. Okay, so the PlayStation 3 version of the shooter-looter launched eons ago, but it has been upgraded for virtual reality and should present a totally new experience from the all-new perspective.
And to celebrate that, Sony’s prepared a pretty nifty live action commercial starring vault hunter Maya and her array of outlandish abilities. It’s a nice ad that gets the point of the re-release across, and it should help move some headsets next month, assuming that the range of excellent PSVR Black Friday deals aren’t doing that already.
Good commercial! Absolutely buying this 👍
Sammy, do you know if this uses the AIM peripheral?
Edit - no worries, Sammy, I did my research and found it doesn’t 😔. Maybe they’ll patch it in later, if that’s easy enough to do.
Cool commercial! Played hundreds of hours of the Borderlands series but probably gonna skip this one. Really hoping we get some news in BL3 at the Game Awards!
Just like skyrim I never played it, so will buy it in VR.
@Bad-MuthaAdebisi Oo, I hope you’ll like it! It’s got a great tongue-in-cheek sense of humour, and the shoot+loot loop is great fun 👍
@jacobia it never appealed previously but I enjoyed the Telltales Borderlands game.
Getting the PSVR v2 this week as I've missed VR quite a lot, sold it last year due to my baby son and not been able to play it and the HDR kerfuffle. So I've downloaded my old VR games in preparation and have Astro Bots to look forward to as well as Tetris Effect and I cannot wait 😁😁😁
Will also pick this up as I was a huge fan on the PS3 and this could be a lot of fun in VR too
Why is Gearbox even bothering with Borderlands 3 at this point?
Sounds like the Be Our Guest song from Beauty and the Beast.
I'd have to see some in depth reviews before making this purchase. I tried playing this on my PC recently and I could barely hold above 60fps with a 1080, so unless they made some significant engine optimizations, this is going to run very poorly in VR.
I love Boderlands and find this live action clip very cool. However i have no VR equipment and have already played BL2 for a gazzillion hours. Want BL3 bad.
Not for me this one but glad to see Sony are continuing to promote the VR games with decent ads.
I did finally get Astrobot today through. Just downloading it now. 😁
Wow this is a really cool ad...shame I don't have PSVR and have no plans to buy one for many years.
@Enuo probaly to make a bunch of money...
