Skateboarding, much like soccer, doesn’t feel like an immediately immaculate fit for PSVR2. That’s because so much of Sony’s new-gen headset revolves around what you do with your hands, rather than your feet. The developers of VR Skater have embraced that, meaning you’ll move your hands in exactly the same way a real skater would move their feet.
While the proof will ultimately be in the pudding, feedback has been positive thus far. This looks like a tricky title to master, but the physics look seriously impressive, and we can imagine this being incredibly gratifying once you work up a flow. There’s no release date attached right now, but the game’s in development, and is due out later in the summer.

-10 points for the ghastly term, soccer
Soccer?! Come on push square
Hmm looks a bit weird that one. Will see how it reviews. Loving the VR news though regardless. Agreed though.........Soccer ?????? Chad Barker
It’s great that PushSquare is giving VR some attention. I hope that continues.
Oooh that is just not right, don’t ever tarnish our beautiful game again with this American terminology.
No Alyx?? This is a tragedy
Reminder that the term "soccer" was actually invented by Brits, who apparently can't handle that other countries have different dialects and often their own words for things. Hell, there's like 6 different words for a bread roll in the UK.
Anyhow, this game looks like it would never work in a million years. Sure, I could very easily envisage a skateboarding game in VR, but it would be using simple controller inputs like you'd be using in the Tony Hawk games. This is a really intuitive way of doing it, and it intrigues me enough to want to know more. And I'm not even into skateboarding!
The concept looks neat but, I'm not sure VR with weird placeholder controls is the way to really sell VR. Simulating skateboarding with your hands sounds like simulating playing piano with your feet.
@BeerIsAwesome Technically, America was invented by Brits, but they never want to take ownership of their own failures
@NEStalgia Ha, touché! Deaths, taxes and Brits fiercely defending their language.
If you think we’re bad, look into how the French defend their language! Lol [deaths, taxes, and sticking it to the French!]
@BeerIsAwesome All true but that's not how we roll now😉
@thefourfoldroot1 lol I think the French stepped into that one the moment they banned the foreign term "eSports" 😂
The French stepping towards something? Surely they’re more used to going in the other direction? 😳
I feel like this comments section is going to get closed though due to too much off-topic. It's probably best we start talking about the game itself rather than some wording. I'll be honest, this game looks more fun than it has any right to be. When I get a PSVR2, I'll definitely give this game consideration, even if I don't necessarily buy it.
Also, @thefourfoldroot1 Just don't ask them about the number 80!
