A free demo getting 730 heat? It's a DEMO! Of course it's free! Also it's not actually free because you need a PSN subscription. Also, 730 is more than the number of PSVR owners, so I'm not sure where the heat is coming from.

How long is this demo then? A bit misleading to release a VR demo of a game that only contains 20 minutes of VR. :?
Couldn't control any worse than the actual game. Such a shame the controls were so archaic when it looks so pretty. Bet it's a treat in vr.

Seems like this is a "VR Experience" spin-off, not a game demo.

Shame but I would have thought the main game was ill-suited to VR anyway.

Heat regardless, free VR content is always welcome... whether it stays on the HDD or not

I think it's more meant as a VR demo rather than a Last Guardian demo, if that makes sense.

The game itself doesn't have a VR mode, and you don't need to own the game to play this demo.
Its okaaay. Takes about 10 minutes, maybe quicker if you don't stop to look around. Its point and click, which is a bit annoying, but nice enough as a free demo. This isn't a demo of a full game - its literally just a short demo of VR (a bit like the Battlefront VR addon).

2 million PSVR units in just over a year.
That's no bad my friend
"PSVR bundles saw an incredible 46,700% increase in sales, making the number one selling product on Amazon UK at the time. That’s the whole of Amazon, not just the video games category."

Once you try VR your flat screen gaming will never be the same 😁

Gonna need a quote for the "best seller on Amazon" bit, because I find that almost impossible to believe. What about the groceries you can buy with the touch of a button? And surely Amazon would have to sell at least as many Playstations as they do VR kits?

I'm gonna save VR for a few years, it's still a gimmick. Not to mention that the PlayStation looks rubbish at 1080p 30fps, never mind the resolutions and frame rate required for VR.

And only a tiny selection of games are available in VR, it's hardly an "either/or" thing. None of the best games are available in VR.

I think it speaks volumes that your best argument is a single six-year-old game. It's hardly as if current AAA titles are being released in VR, which is the point I'm making.

No need to get so worked up over my comment. Nor is there any need to call me "sir", especially given I'm a woman.

You've said a few silly things. You DON'T need a PSN subscription to download the demo. The Amazon "best seller" title can apply to multiple departments, its not like everything is going to be offset by people buying groceries. Its like saying any fiction couldn't be a best seller because "wot about the bible or dictionaries?" Its worthy of heat because its not a free demo of a game - its related to a game, but is a standalone VR taster experience that is NOT a preview of a full VR game. That's exactly the kind of freebie that is worthy of this page. Also, people don't need to have a PSVR to recognise its a good deal and give it appreciation. I don't buy everything I click 'hot' for, that's a ridiculous suggestion.

If you think the graphics are poor, and you prefer to be led by whether potential market trends dictate what is a gimmick or not rather than what you actually enjoy - then yes, clearly VR is not for you. But there are plenty of people out there who definitely do love the unique psychological sensation of VR, and they tend to be friendly, decent, down-to-earth, positive and enthusiastic sorts. I also use it for playing 2D games and films on the cinema screen mode, so the resolution can't be that bad. Games like Resident Evil 7, Farpoint, Rush of Blood and Dirt Rally really are excellent, unique experiences and there are loads of upcoming big titles. I have absolutely no issue with the graphics, when I take off the headset and play via the TV it looks small, distant and unimmersive in comparison.

That's a big essay, please work on brevity in the future.

1. The guy I replied to specifically said that it was the best seller on the ENTIRE of Amazon, so the first half of your novel is invalid.
2. Your point about "down-to-earth" people enjoying VR? I have no idea what you're trying to say there. Like no clue whatsoever.
3. The PSVR outputs 1080 x 960 per eye, a resolution I haven't seen since the late nineties. It's a long way from truly being immersive, or being the average gamer's preferred way to game.

Let's see, I made a fairly reasonable comment about how demos should be free, you then waded in and attacked me over the course of about 5000 words, and then when I ask why you're so mad you basically reply "no you". I'm done talking to you thanks.

Outstanding, that makes two. There's Doom as well (albeit with Wii-standard graphics and a year after the game released). So there's three. You're failing to see that a small number of examples don't show mass adoption of VR.

My career is based on creating the cutting edge of technology, but by all means tell me that I should go back to the kitchen because I'm a woman. Wow. Enjoy your ban!
I'm not entirely sure why I bothered reading the above but, what intrigues me, is why people feel the need to 'win' arguments with strangers who are irrelevant to them in terms of their particular life. Infact, not sure why I even bothered posting that

Exactly, there's a very defensive bunch on this site. I express my opinion and there are always people who feel the need to respond by personally attacking me. Look at the guy immediately above, with the ridiculous sexist attack!
Amazing. Loved the game and the 3D is brilliant when Trico is licking you!

Farpoint is fantastic
Just finished and completed Arizona Sunshine. Was an amazing experience. I actually prefer teleportation and I find I dont then suffer from motion sickness. Slowly working up my tolerance to sickness with the motion. So worth it.

The comment about how unimmmersive normal game play seems after being in VR is spot on!

I started off in the late 80s with an Atari ST. We could only dream about tech like PSVR back then. Also back then my Atari ST cost me £399!!!

Me too! North and South, Supercars II, Turrican, Shadow of the Beast, Robocop 3, Worms, such fond memories. Playing the same level over and over on those cover disk demos too! I can't imagine what kids experiences now will be comparing to in the future.
