PlayStation VR has over 50 games confirmed, and we’re excited

When trying to get new gaming tech off the ground, one of the hardest things is making sure there’s enough software to support it. Kinect, for example, is an awesome piece of hardware that works well but was very poorly supported with the kind of software meant for early adopters, forcing Microsoft to all but officially retire it. That’s one of the biggest concerns with the push for virtual reality in the last couple years. Oculus Rift has the benefit of being a PC-focused piece of hardware on an open platform, but PlayStation VR doesn’t.

On the other hand, backing from a big company known for engineering great hardware means something, too, and Sony is putting together a strong list of upcoming games that should give early adopters something to do. Redditor ZilliVanilli compiled the list of confirmed games below. Not all of them are launch titles, and not all of them are confirmed for western release, but it’s a good start that could help push the hardware further into the mainstream.

  • Atom Universe
  • Adrift
  • Allison Road
  • ARK: Survival Evolved
  • The Assembly
  • Battlezone
  • Crystal Rift
  • Danganrompa VR

Some of the items in this list come from experienced developers. Gran Turismo Sport from Polyphony Digital and Tekken 7 from Bandai Namco are both big names with a long history. Others have shown great proof of concept – EVE: Valkyrie from CCP and London Heist from SCE London Studio are both games that people have played in demo form and had a good time with, suggesting that there’s something real to be had there. Meaningful content that works as more than a demo is one of VR’s other big hurdles, so games like those are an absolute must. There have been some cool trailers as well, like Robinson: The Journey from Crytek.

Check out the source post below for links to trailers for many of these titles to see how much we have to look forward to with VR, at least on the PlayStation side.
