Farpoint: The New PS VR Exclusive

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

A plethora of PSVR games, were announced during PlayStation’s E3 2016 press conference. But there is one that stood out tremendously from all the games shown. That game is called Farpoint. Coming to exclusively to PS VR, when it launches on October 13th this year When I saw Farpoint, I instantly got the concept they were trying to convey within the trailer. Farpoint is a Sci-fi first person shooter, where the player is left stranded on a hostile alien planet. Players will have to survive, as they explore this rigorous yet mysterious planet.

In my opinion, “This is one of those VR experiences needed, to sell consumers weary about purchasing a VR headset.” 

During E3, the small development team- Impulse Gear are also working really close with Sony Interactive Entertainment(SIE). To bring PSVR players a new experience with VR introducing the PSVR aim controller.

PSVR Aim Controller

Here is more information on the PSVR aim controller from the PlayStation Blog:

The PS VR Aim Controller offers the most realistic and precise way to control our game. With direct 1 to 1 tracking, you aim in Farpoint just as you would in real life. How you hold and where you point the controller are directly matched in the game. This allows you to do things in Farpoint that just are not possible in a standard FPS game. It also provides an unbelievable sense of presence in the virtual world.

Spiderman Comes Exclusively to PlayStation 4

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

Before the PlayStation E3 press conference, my spidey senses were tingling about a new Spiderman game coming to Next Generation. Well I’m happy to announce, a new Spiderman game is coming exclusively to PlayStation 4. Surprisedly enough, Insomniac Games are the developers creating the game.

My personal opinion: “I am super stoked for this new Spiderman game. Spiderman is my favorite Superhero of all time. And seeing him exclusively on PS4, being done by a respectful studio. My eagerness and enthusiasm for this game is at a all time high. I can’t wait for more info on the game” 

Here are some more details from Insomniac Byran Intihar, on Spiderman PS4:

“From a personal and professional standpoint, this is a dream come true. I’ve been an avid Marvel fan all my life. When I first learned Insomniac was approached by our long-time friends and collaborators at Sony Interactive Entertainment with the opportunity to create a blockbuster Spider-Man console game experience, I practically ran into Ted’s office professing my passion for Spider-Man – along with a desire to serve as creative director. Fortunately, there are many more longtime fans and professional admirers of Marvel at Insomniac. From comics to films and TV, Marvel has a stellar reputation for unique characters and storytelling filled with personality and humor. Those are tenets we value deeply in our own craft.

From our first meeting, Marvel, Spider-Man and Insomniac have felt like a match made in heaven. So much so that for the first time in Insomniac’s 22-year history, we’re working on an IP that didn’t originate in-house. We love building big games, with incredible gameplay, deep stories, and beautiful graphics. Spider-Man is one of the most iconic and well-known characters in the world, and we’re thrilled to be given the responsibility to create a brand-new, authentic Spider-Man story. Nope, this isn’t the same Spider-Man you’ve met before, nor is our game based on the upcoming movie. This is a more seasoned Peter Parker who’s more masterful at fighting big crime in New York City. At the same time, he’s struggling to balance his absurdly chaotic personal life and career. All while nine million New Yorkers depend on him for their safety… no pressure indeed.

This collaboration also allows us to quickly return to action developing on PS4. Having released Ratchet & Clank, we feel confident in our ability to create a showpiece for the console. And we’re downright giddy bringing Spidey’s acrobatic abilities, improvisation, and web-slinging to life. But we also want to introduce new elements that players have never experienced with Spider-Man, ranging from traversing with parkour and utilizing the environment, to new combat and blockbuster set-pieces.”
