Sony confirms they are working on the next generation PlayStation console

PlayStation 5 is legitimate, and it is breaking news all over the internet

 

The Sony Chief Executive Officer Kenichiro Yoshida has confirmed that the next generation PlayStation console is currently in development he said and I quote from the Financial Times “At this point, what I can say is it’s necessary to have a next-generation hardware”. Kenchirio Yoshida wouldn’t inform us, on what the official name of this new and upcoming console is or the type of hardware but, I can assume it could possibly be the PlayStation 5.

The FT reports that its sources have said that the upcoming console “might not represent a major departure from the PS4, and that the fundamental architecture would be similar.

Following the success of Nintendo’s hybrid Switch, and the announcement for the upcoming Microsoft’s Project xCloud – aiming to allow players to run games on any internet-enabled device – there has been speculation about whether Sony would take similar approaches to one or both, of their newly announced developments.

Overall this is, exciting news for gaming enthusiasts, all three major corporations working on the future of home video game entertainment, the Microsoft Project xCloud will make gaming easily accessible to more than one device. additionally Nintendo who recently announced they have a new version of the Switch in development and the untitled successor to the  PlayStation 4 now confirmed we will most likely have to wait 5-10 years for a release date but we will most likely see news reports, updates and more information in the near future, for the ninth generation of gaming.

Borderlands 2 VR Gets All Up in Your Face on PlayStation VR

The genre defining shooter-looter comes to VR for the first time on December 14, 2018 

Watch the announcment trailer below

 

2K and  Gearbox Software today announced Borderlands® 2 VR, that will bring the critically-acclaimed and genre-defining shooter-looter franchise to VR for the first time on December 14, 2018 on PlayStation®VR. Fans who pre-order Borderlands 2 VR will also be rewarded with instant access to a dynamic PlayStation Theme featuring the game’s four iconic Vault Hunters – Salvador, Maya, Axton and Zer0.

 

 

This exciting ambitous project developed by Gearbox Software, Borderlands 2 Virtual Reality bringing the iconic world of Pandora to life like never before. Players will virtually become a treasure-seeking Vault Hunter, grab 87 bazillion guns, and face off against the galaxy’s most charming psychopathic dictator, Handsome Jack, to free Pandora from the corrupt Hyperion Corporation.
 
Key features for Borderlands 2 VR on PS VR include: 
 

  • Virtually Step onto Pandora: Step into the boots of a treasure-seeking Vault Hunter armed with 87 bazillion possible guns on a quest to line your pockets with loot and free Pandora from Handsome Jack’s clutches. Blast bandits with real-world aiming, punch bullymongs in the mouth, find the perfect gun inside a life-sized treasure chest and inspect it from every angle. Catch-aRide and race across Pandora in first-person view and experience the thrill of a psycho running toward you with grenade in-hand yelling, “Boom time!”

 

  • Virtually Slow Time: Borderlands 2 VR includes new features unique to the VR experience to empower Vault Hunters in their fight against Handsome Jack. With Bad Ass Mega Fun Time (aka BAMF Time), players can use this new slow-mo ability to literally slow the speed of the game temporarily to set up their next attack. In addition, with the option to Teleport, players can glide across Pandora as gracefully as Claptrap (if he had grace).

 

  • Become a Virtual Vault Hunter: Take on the role of one of four playable classes – Siren, Commando, Gunzerker and Assassin – each with unique combat styles and updated skills that leverage the new VR functionality, including the new BAMF Time ability. Whether crushing enemies with Maya’s Siren powers, calling in Sabre Turret reinforcements as Axton, feeling the heft of dual-wielded machine guns as Salvador, or the satisfying swing of Zer0’s sword in an enemy’s back, Borderlands 2 VR immerses players like never before.

 

  • Experience Virtual Improvements: For the first time ever, players can experience the sublime exhilaration of driving around the Borderlands in first-person perspective – accelerating and steering with the joystick and aiming the vehicle’s weapons with their headset. With the use of the motion controllers and headset, players can interact with the menu systems in a new and intuitive way for the platform, easily navigating through the menus by pointing, clicking, dragging and dropping. Players will also have the choice of preferred movement styles. Whether that’s the VR popular pointed-teleportation, or the classic direct movement style with joysticks – your experience should feel good for VR and true to form of classic Borderlands.

 

  • Get Virtually RichBorderlands VR brings shoot-and-loot mechanics to VR with bazillions of procedurally-generated guns and gear, each with their own capabilities and modifiers. Procedurally-generated shields, grenades, relics, class mods and more round out your Vault Hunter’s arsenal for maximum power and mayhem.

 
Borderlands 2 VR will be available on December 14, 2018 for the PlayStation®VR. Borderlands 2 VR is rated PEGI 18 and is single-player only.
