Sony Gears Up For PAX Australia With PlayStation VR Line-Up

With Tokyo Game Show long gone and as we approach Halloween the event season is pretty much over and done with in the Northern Hemisphere. Particularly in Europe and America, with the only real exception being Sony’s annual PlayStation Experience event set to take place across the 9th and 10th of December. Other than this however it’s more a case of waiting out the rest of 2017 and what Autumn and Winter bring until the new year.

But that’s not taking into account the Southern Hemisphere where it’s currently the end of Spring, not Autumn, and Australia is gearing up for its iteration of PAX once again. It also seems, much as with PlayStation Experience, there’s going to be plenty for PlayStation VR fans to try out.

The line-up is as follows:

Gran Turismo Sport

“In PlayStation VR you’ll quite literally have the driving wheel at your fingertips. From hitting the brakes to turning a corner, experiencing Gran Turismo Sport in the PS VR headset will let players experience a true-to-life driving experience.”

Gran Turismo Sport‘s VR mode is limited, but impressive, even to professionals.  Ardent armchair racers meanwhile can increase their experience with Thrustmaster’s Gran Turismo Sport racing wheel, which we covered at this year’s E3.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR: The Elder Scrolls V

Skyrim VR is a true, full-length open-world game for VR from award-winning developers, Bethesda Game Studios®. Skyrim VR reimagines the complete epic fantasy masterpiece with an unparalleled sense of scale, depth, and immersion.”
