Not buying it unless it supports at least 4 transvibrators.

The unfortunate thing about VR is that the kind of games that work best in VR are pretty outdated in comparison to the popular range of modern games.

VR Doom, Skyrim and Wipeout have all been massive disappointments for me. Sure, when you put the headset on and look around the world it's an amazing feeling but there's just TOO much going on. Too much movement etc.

With those games the VR is more like a novelty. You put it on for an hour or 2 here and there and then once the "wow" factor has worn off you just forget about it. I've probably played a couple of hundred hours of Skyrim on Switch and PS but in VR I've played less than 10 hours.

Tetris Effect is exactly what a VR game should be. It's a solidly challenging game that is replayable and still gives the "wow" factor of VR without being overly complicated.

I think the complete opposite is true.
Tetris is a complete novelty in VR

The likes of Astro Boy, Resi 7, Skyrim and Wipeout are the way VR should be. They are immersive and bring you into a VR world , an experience that you can't get without VR.
Tetris VR is pretty much the same with or without VR.

I just watched this now, popped up on my youtube feed, my first real look at the game and may counter the thinking VR is just a novelty for it.



Game looks great, i may get it.... some day

So i got a PSVR at christmas and I promptly bought tetris effect and i think it is excellent. When i tell my friends that my favourite game on the VR headset is tetris they think I'm taking the piss, until they have a go themselves.

deadly! The more people that play this game the better! It's incredible.
Finally got to level 100 in it last week. Me and my partner are addicted to it
