PlayStation VR 2 launched late final month alongside greater than 40 titles, which included video games completely new to the platform as properly current video games from different platforms and upgraded PSVR titles. The headset’s first month-to-month prime obtain chart has revealed a giant shift during which video games are taking an early lead within the headset’s rising library.
Taking the highest spot throughout the US & Canada, the EU and Japan is Kayak VR: Mirage, a kayak racing sim initially launched on SteamVR headsets in 2022 by Amsterdam-based indie studio Higher Than Life.
In it, gamers race throughout lush, photorealistic environments together with ice caves in Antarctica, tropical locales in Costa Rica, storm waters in Norway, and the stark canyons of Australia. The paddling motion mechanic can also be one thing that works very well in VR too, which we hope extra video games will make use of thanks to simply how immersive it may be.
Horizon Name of the Mountain, undoubtedly a product of sizable funding by Sony, solely managed to eke out third place within the US/Canada and the EU, taking second place in Japan, which might be greater than a tad disappointing to the Sony-owned builders Guerilla Video games and Firesprite.
Horizon Name of the Mountain is a single-player journey that showcases a number of the finest graphics you’ll discover wherever in VR. Fight might be a bit extra fluid and climbing might have extra fascinating challenges, though it actually stacks as much as Half-Life: Alyx by way of immersion. Take a look at why we recreation it a decent [8.5/10] in our assessment.
Granted, Horizon Name of the Mountain comes with a premium price ticket of $60, which can clarify why it underperforms in unit gross sales compared to a budget and cheerful $25 workforce shooter Pavlov and $23 Kayak VR: Mirage.
What’s extra, it appears the period of Job Simulator (2016) ruling the PSVR prime obtain charts has come to a particular finish—regardless of it and sequel Trip Simulator each providing PSVR 2 variations. Job Simulator has dominated the obtain charts practically each month with out fail because it launched on the unique PSVR.
Take be aware: the February obtain chart solely accounts for the headset’s first week in existence (Feb 22-28). March’s chart must be one other pretty fascinating learn, as we see whether or not these prime spots stay, or falter as extra customers decide up PSVR 2 headsets. Take a look at the chart beneath:
