With PlayStation VR set to land in four months, it was no surprise that Sony went big on virtual reality at E3 2016.
Along with a handful of new VR-ready games, Sony revealed a new add-on called the PS VR Aim Controller, which you’ll be able to use with the game Farpoint – and presumably plenty of other titles too.
This isn’t just a piece of plastic to slot a Move Controller into – the peripheral comes with everything built in – making it a spiritual and more technologically advanced successor to Sony’s Sharpshooter.
Farpoint’s studio co-founder Seth Luisi said the Aim Controller is the “most realistic and precise way to control” the game, promising direct 1 to 1 tracking.
“This allows you to do things in Farpoint that just are not possible in a standard FPS game,” he said. “It also provides an unbelievable sense of presence in the virtual world.”
Previous PlayStation VR demos have either used a pair of PlayStation Move controllers or else a standard DualShock 4.
The question now is: when are we going to get our Time Crisis reboot? Because, let’s be honest, that’s what we’re all waiting for.
Come on, Sony – there’s even a job in there for your live E3 orchestra…
