How much of an improvement over Box VR is Beat Saber? I enjoy Box, but I've heard Beat Saber is peak PSVR...and it's never going on sale, apparently.

Never played Box VR so I can't compare, but Beat Saber is by far my most played PSVR game and if you enjoy rhythm games you will love it.  

 

It doesn't go on sale because it doesn't have to in order to get sales.

I have been waiting and hoping for this news. Very happy


Me too! I tried to play the demo of this multiple times at Star Wars Celebration 2019 because it was an Oculus exclusive at the time, but they always capped the line because it was so popular. Now I get to play it at home on my PSVR!

I mean, wtf? This is easily the biggest release in the last what, 18 months for PSVR and it's a stealth release? If you are not familiar with it yes its a horror game but has an incredible amount variety content and choice. Put simply, this would be a pretty solid FPS in 2D and is only heavily enhanced by VR immersion and VR mechanics (like melee) that are well implemented.

How did I not know this was a thing? I've watched a couple of videos on the PSVR version and it looks like something I would enjoy.

 

Why is there a tourist edition for $49.99, or a standard edition for $39.99 and tourist upgrade for $9.99. Is the tourist stuff just add-on dlc? I would like a cheapass price, but I feel like I'm going to grab it anyway.

While they're both rhythm games with similar concepts, their purposes are very different. Beat Saber is a very fun game. Total pick up and play for anyone and great to show off to friends. Get a group together, pass everything around, and have a fun night. It's perfect for those of us who treat VR as something to share with others while still being a blast by yourself.
BoxVR is a workout simulation that also happens to be fun. There's no penalty for failing in the normal play. You'll do workouts from just a couple minutes long all the way up to over an hour, if you so choose (and are able). This is not great for sociability, unless it's just a couple of you and you're patient with each other. But it does make working out legitimately fun.
So it kind of depends on what you're looking for. I have both and love them equally for the different reasons described above.

Give me a good port of Half-Life Alyx and they have my money (as long as the set is compatible with PS5 also).

I agree. This is up there with the Darth Vader game and Iron Man in the tier of games that Sony should be shamelessly promoting right now.

Beat Saber is also a crazy workout too.  I just wanted to put that out there since he made this sound like you don't get a workout in it.

I don't know if I like the idea of sweating up my VR headset for a workout. :-k

On the Quest I've tried a couple of workout apps and while I haven't hit the wall yet I know at some point I'll need to remove the face cushion and wash it because it gets quite sweaty after about 30 minutes. I haven't even seen how easy it is for PSVR but while for Quest it "looks" straight forward have I'm not sure what wear and tear will look like or even how I'd eventually replace it.

Blood & Truth is $19.99 new with Prime shipping via a third party. This is the best price for a physical copy I've seen.

Wow, a few Walmarts within 25mi of my area had it for $10. Sold out of course.

Got real excited to see blood and truth hit so low, until I realized I had already bought a copy off eBay back in March. Luckily I remembered before I could check out

I just got done with the first world in Astrobot. That game is soooooo cool!!  I really think a lot of people are missing out. 100 million PS4's out there and like only 6 million of them have PSVR. Far too low.

Astrobot and Moss are the 2 best "non traditional" VR games.  

 

I say non traditional because they are not what you think of when you think VR games.

I guess there is a flash sale? Just got a psprices.com alert that Raw Data is on sale and i happens to be the lowest price so far, $8. https://store.playst...D1RELEASE000001 Finally. I was getting pretty frustrated constantly seeing it go on sale for $14.

I beat Astrobot last week. Such an awesome game! It's right up there with Super Mario Odyssey for best platformer this gen.

That’s weird. I scrolled through the sale the other day and didn’t see it, though I do now. Plus the psprices alert didn’t come through till today. Either way, the price is right so I’m going to grab it

The Playstation blog post had asterisks by some games. Some games went on sale a day or two after the sale started. Raw Data was one of them.

wow, I have an extra one I've been meaning to unload.  I checked the going price and am surprised to see camera prices jacked up even higher than ds4's have been.
