I love the HL universe, but have zero interest in VR right now. Some of it looks kinda cool, but it's not the way I would want to play.

Game launches in March. I just wish that there was a console version on the horizon. I'm trying to decide if I should just build a gaming PC now or wait and see what shakes out. I think that PSVR2 is probably not going to make it until at least 2021, and Microsoft is out to lunch, so no current non-PC option.

I just noticed that the official announcement trailer for HLA has almost reached 10M views... or in other words, 2X the amount of PSVRs sold. This game will definitely be a hardware seller, for sure. Cool that they don't care what headset you use.👍

It plays like a regular game though with analogs sticks. You can use teleportation but f*** that.

I hope it comes to PSVR 2 fairly quickly as that will probably be my VR device of choice.
Assuming PSVR2 comes out by 2021? I kinda doubt it will launch w/ PS5, or do you think it will? It kinda sucks that you NEED a PC for this game, but I guess that's how it goes.

Well, I mean Half Life was originally a PC franchise...what's that term that Sony fanboys love to cream their pants over?....oh yea.. EXCLUSIVES.

True on both. They were always behind when releasing on console, and seemed like Xbox got the ports first because it was probably easier to port back then. Valve loves to aim for higher than console specs, but the next gen is like 7 months away, and can finally get there in a reasonable time. Seems a shame to not finally release on console the same year, but if Sony doesn't launch new VR, what's the point? The Moves and 1080p screen probably won't do the game justice. I'd personally get PS5 just for this game, but only if it a) launched with PSVR2 or b) was playable with PSVR now, but upgradable with PSVR2 at launch of that platform. These are the kind of answers that E3 is for! Personally, I feel that the company that is skipping E3 needs E3 the most.
