Sony's newest killer app is SUPER HOT!
Wow!... I just tried the PSVR version of Super HOT, and I'm convinced this is going to be the newest killer app for the system! Before I get too crazy with praise for this, I have to say that this is just my first initial impressions of playing the PlayStation VR version. Still, I feel like this is going to be right up there with Resident Evil 7 and Farpoint as the biggest PSVR games available. I'm thrilled that the port seems to have made it through with flying colors. I'm playing on a PS4 Pro, so not sure how much of that is factoring into the equation, but from what I've seen, about 90 percent of the Rift / Vive version has made it through unscathed. That other 10 percent is for some minor tracking hiccups courtesey of the worst in class tracking / controller system that Sony has right now.
While rumors might be swirling about replacements for the Move controllers, the Super HOT Team had to deal with the present reality. I'd say they did a bang up job!
I've played Super HOT extensively on the Rift and Vive. I'm extremely familiar with the way the game is supposed to "feel", and that feeling is absolutely present on this PlayStation VR version. This is huge news for the VR industry in general, because the more breakout games like this that we get, that really conveys the power of VR, the better. We need our early VR classics, and I'm not going out on a limb when I say that Super HOT has to be included in this category. The game has now arrived on all 3 major headsets, and has proven to be one of the best games available for all 3 platforms. That's really saying something. (Full disclosure, we didn't pay for the PSVR version of this game)
