I feel the term "killer app" is being misused these days.  A killer app isn't a game or software that demonstrates the potential of a product, rather it is a game or software that makes the masses want/buy the product.  Wipeout series is great I'm, but too niche to be considered a PSVR seller to the masses.

 

There's only a few killer apps in videogame history...

Pong

Super Mario Bros

Super Mario World

Sonic the Hedgehog

Super Mario 64

Final Fantasy VII

DVD (for PS2)

Halo

Wii Sports

 

I might be missing one but that is the echelon of true killer apps that made those systems fly off shelves.
