Hopefully it Quill be good
Back when PlayStation VR was just getting started, Moss was an early winner of hearts with its super-cute protagonist and innovative platforming gameplay. Guiding Quill the mouse through fantastical environments remains a joy, even if it does end all too quickly. Fortunately, Moss: Book II is right around the corner...

A different reality
The PlayStation 5 might be shiny and all, but another piece of important Sony tech still making waves (just about) is, of course, PSVR. The original headset launched in 2016, having recently celebrated its fifth anniversary on the market. As such, we found ourselves wondering: where does Sony’s take on virtual reality currently...

Republished on Wednesday, 28th October, 2021: We're bringing this review back from the archives following the announcement of November 2021's PlayStation Plus lineup. The original text follows. The Persistence is a perfect name. Yes, it relates to some sci-fi mumbo-jumbo buried at the very core of the game’s lore, but really it...

Update #2 (27th October 2021, 23:00): How many updates will we need to issue until we have the full list of free PS Plus games for the month of November 2021?

Every must-have PSVR game
What are the best PSVR games? PlayStation VR has been around for a good while now, and it’s amassed an incredibly impressive selection of software in that time. Of course, with new fans entering the virtual reality realm for the first time every single day, we figured that we’d compile a list of the best PSVR games to...

Plus a new experience
Synth Riders landed on PlayStation VR last month and we absolutely loved it. Synth Riders launched with an incredible selection of music — even discounting the tracks locked behind a paywall — and not only did it have a great gameplay loop, but also the best VR solution to sustained notes to date. We couldn't wait to see...

Dubstep star returns
Skrillex and Beat Saber seem like a match made in heaven, so this latest collaboration for the PlayStation VR hit is long overdue. A new music pack has hit the PS Store for £8.99/$10.99 that contains many of the Dubstep star's biggest and most popular tracks from when the genre was still a mainstream thing. There are eight

PSVR optional, by the way
About four years ago, it was announced that Neko Atsume, a popular Japanese game about collecting and playing with feline friends, would be getting a PlayStation VR version. While this did materialise in 2018, it was only released in its homeland of Japan, with no sign of a Western launch for cat lovers across the sea...

Virtually giving them away
This week's brand new sale on PlayStation Store has arrived, and it's all about PSVR. Sony's first virtual reality headset is coming up on five years old, and in that time it's built up a pretty substantial library. If you've missed out on any VR titles, now's your best chance to get some immersive gaming goodies on the...

Pet Bullet in virtual reality
Bloober Team's Blair Witch game is spooky enough on a regular display, but for the real horror fans out there, how about experiencing it in PlayStation VR? Blair Witch: VR Edition brings the full game over to Sony's headset, allowing you to explore the forest alongside Bullet immersed in virtual reality. Oh, and the...
Tuesday20th Jul 2021
PlayStation VR is slowly and steadily receiving new games, and one of the more promising titles coming soon is Fracked. Exclusive to Sony's headset, the game takes place in the Alaskan mountains, where a fracking facility is centre stage in an invasion from interdimensional creatures.

The first headset, not the second
Polyarc is developing a sequel to PlayStation VR title Moss, sticking Book II on the end of the title. The game is being made for the current PSVR headset, not the next-gen device currently being worked on by Sony. The YouTube description reads: "In Moss: Book II, the story picks up right where things left off...

Ride that synth
Virtual reality is a natural fit for many gaming genres, but we doubt many could have predicted rhythm action doing so well. Beat Saber came along and proved it's a winning combination, and since then, the likes of Audica and Pistol Whip have shown it wasn't a fluke. Now, Synth Riders is making its way to PlayStation VR after a...

The spy who sorted out my cables
The life of a spy is not all silenced pistols and fist fights: you’ll also enjoy luxurious train journeys, first-class plane rides, and behind-the-scenes access to the world’s biggest stage shows. I Expect You to Die 2 – the PSVR sequel to Schell Games’ spy sim – is due out this summer, and here’s a look...
Monday14th Jun 2021
Fresh from securing a PSVR release date earlier in the month, Rebellion has rounded up a few scant seconds of Sniper Elite VR gameplay to tide you over until the title’s 8th July release date. This footage mostly focuses on combat encounters, both of the long-distance and close-quarters kind. There’s also a brief tease of the...

The future was now
We were first introduced to Wanderer back in March, and it's one of the more exciting titles heading to PlayStation VR in the near future. The PlayStation Blog just gave us a brand new trailer for the time-travelling adventure, and we're really looking forward to seeing what makes this game tick. You'll travel to various notable...
Cross-play shooter coming this summer
After the Fall's post-apocalypse doesn't look particularly inviting, does it? Not that any post-apocalypse is all that cosy, but this example looks especially harsh. The PlayStation VR co-op shooter is set 20 years after a disaster spawns the Snowbreed, a once-human race of zombie-esque creatures, and it's...
What the frack
A few months back, developer nDreams announced Fracked, a PlayStation VR exclusive first person shooter, and it looked pretty damn good. Well, the game continues to look promising in this latest trailer, showing off a few minutes of gameplay. In it, the player engages in firefights with interdimensional humanoids, and what's clear is...

Go, go gadget Rube Goldberg machine

Which titles support Sony's new gun?
Sony’s virtual reality solution PSVR already requires significant investment, but the PlayStation VR Aim Controller really is worth owning if you’re – ahem – aiming to get the most out of the headset. While the peripheral is only supported by a handful of games thus far, it really does add to the...

Out Q3 2021
Sony's PlayStation VR headset has housed some of the most unique gaming experiences on offer over the past couple of years, and Wanderer looks to be another one for that impressive list. Scheduled for release later this year for the first PSVR device, meaning it'll operate as a PS4 title, the fascinating game from developer Oddboy places...

Go to hell
Games not designed with VR first have a tendency to be rather hit-or-miss, but the PSVR adaptation of DOOM 3 – the black sheep of the esteemed shooter franchise – is most definitely a hit. A shooter lives and dies by how the gunplay is, and DOOM 3 VR’s shooting is spectacular. While using the PSVR Aim Controller is definitely the...

Another layer of fear
It's a pretty well established fact that horror games and virtual reality are a match made in spooky heaven. The extra dimension adds so much to the immersive experience, it's no surprise that PlayStation VR has lots of horror titles to, er, enjoy. Cult hit Layers of Fear was ported to PC VR systems a while back, but now it's...

As you may recall, a new Sam & Max adventure was announced last year, taking the Freelance Police to VR. Sam & Max: This Time It's Virtual is in development at HappyGiant, and will have you fighting crime alongside the rabbit and dog duo. When it was announced, there was a question about platforms. Which virtual reality...

Pavlov Shack is its name
Huh, well here's something pretty cool. Pavlov Shack developer Vankrupt Games has confirmed its next title will launch for the next-generation PlayStation VR headset instead of the device already on the market. Detailed across a few tweets, the original headset supposedly "doesn't have the fidelity" for Pavlov Shack and the

No more PS Camera
For as much as we love PlayStation VR here at Push Square – and we genuinely are big fans – its flaws have become more and more obvious as time has passed. One of its biggest problems is the way it relies on the PlayStation Camera to track your movements. This is obviously fine in titles like Beat Saber, where you’re mostly...
