Forums - Sony Discussion - This is PSVR's Killer App

I hope this is the case. I was messing around with SculptrVR last night for the first time, and it is incredible how easy it is to use, and make something, and I have no artistic talent. If Dreams has an even better tool set, I can't wait to see what people create in it.

There are so many opportunities to take advantage of the Camera, Move, and VR, that Dreams is one of my most anticipated pieces of software ever. If it is as good as they are saying, this can allow us not only to have community made recreations of classic Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo games, but also VR versions of of those classic games. I dream of Killzone or Halo recreated for PSVR in Dreams, or Mario 64, Mario Kart VR.

Now, just get us the beta already.

Ok, this won't be a Killer App for PSVR, because it's still available on regular PS4. No VR needed to play the game.  

That's quite an odd thing to say. People don't play VR games because they're not available on the PS4, they play VR games because they're a completely different experience.

I want to make open world sandbox games with dreams from my childhood dreams . It's a dream comes true

No, but people do buy a new system, when they want an exclusive game badly enough. Case in point, Halo CE.

It doesn't work like that with VR. There isn't big enough competition as there is with consoles. Maybe one day but right now it's the experience itself that sells VR, not just the exclusive software. Case in point, the last RE which was also available on the base PS4.

If it was just the experience of VR that sold VR, don't you think VR would have taken off already? As far as I know there's still under 3 million PSVR units sold. So RE7 sold VR headsets? Any sales data to back that up? 

Edit: For real though, if you can prove that PSVR sales got a boost around the same quarter that RE7 came out, I'll be convinced.

I'm not talking about boosting sales, I'm talking about sustaining sales and giving people reason to continue using their VR headset. You said the Dreams isn't a VR killer app because you can play Dreams on a normal PS4. The two are completely different experiences.

I wonder how much better a text adventure is in VR har har.

It looks good, will buy although I rather have a long game than lots of short ones. It better have a much better way for finding the good stuff than LBP had. I don't want to sit there with the VR helmet on mainly staring at download and loading screens to try something for 30 seconds and put it on the scrap pile.

Yet perhaps someone can recreate something like Pixeljunk 3AM in Dreams VR. Making music with move while inside a visual scape of that music, basically make your own Rez experience on the fly, that would draw me in. Especially with a certain substance becoming legal here soon!

Do you know the only thing I took away from that text adventure was, they've got some decent fonts now.

I hope they sell Assets that people can flip.
