Much-loved rhythm action game headed to PS5
As part of its 2023 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) offerings, Sony has announced that rhythm action title Beat Saber and stylish, road-rippin’ racer Gran Turismo 7 are both headed to the PSVR2 platform.
Speaking in the publisher’s press conference, PlayStation president Jim Ryan singled out the titles as two of “over 30 games” that are currently in development for the PS5’s virtual reality hardware, which is currently set to launch in February of this year. Little more was offered in the way of information, though Gran Turismo 7 owners will be able to upgrade to the PSVR2 edition of the title for free.
No release date was offered for the PSVR2 port of Beat Games’ Beat Saber, which stands proud today as one of the most loved and recognized rhythm action titles for the modern gaming era. The colorful and exciting game is currently available on PS4 (via PSVR) and PC via HTC Vive, Oculus Quest, and Valve Index.
PSVR 2 will launch worldwide on February 22, priced at a princely $550. The current PSVR catalogue will not be compatible with the new hardware. You can watch Sony’s CES 2023 conference, including the PSVR2 update and details of the PS5’s recent sales figures, in the video embedded below.
