    Nice to see, but I think they need to get a move on before Oculus eat their lunch given the talk of a Quest 3 already on top of the Quest 2 overtaking Sony's VR in sales recently.

    They hit a good price point with the original VR, but the quality just wasn't there. As an owner I haven't enjoyed it as much as I wanted to, simply because things were very grainy in places and not smooth. Can they get it 'right' this time without breaking the bank?

    The PS3 move controllers were pretty poor as an interface in games where you had to move, so a step in the right direction. Fine for rail shooters, and the standard controller was fine when you didn't need to use your vr hands. Shame they released the Aim controller and couldn't just figure out the old move controllers + nav controller combo sensibly.

    Seems like they've done just enough to not look like they are totally ripping off the oculus controllers, other than the plastic ring around your wrist, they are very similar from these shots

    Sony just loves flogging that dead horse. This fake VR garbage is still a fad, 20 years away from being any good. This is gaming with a new UI not VR.
