Soapbox Beat Saber, or How I Learned To Stop Hating the Song Packs and Love Imagine Dragons
The final notes slain, Beat Saber takes me back to the menu. My arms can finally rest, having been put through the wringer. Not a full combo, but still an S rank. That’s something, but I’ve full-combo’d this before. I better try again. Just one more try. Just one more. The lights fade. 'Radioactive' starts again, and...

News Beat Saber Surpasses One Million Sales as First DLC Arrives on PSVR
More like Beast Saber
Beat Saber is one of those games that's conceptually simple yet perfectly executed, and it's a combination that's resulted in widespread popularity among virtual reality players. The number of people with a VR headset is relatively small in the grand scheme of things, so for a VR-only title to secure over one million sales is...

Fresh tunes incoming
One of PlayStation VR's best games, and one that sparked a short-lived but highly entertaining rivalry at Push Square Towers, Beat Saber is cracking good fun no matter how you slice it.
