Sony’s State of Play took place late last night and it showed some cool new things for PS4 owners to look forward to if you own a PS VR headset that is. It was a bit disappointing to not hear anything about the big three, namely Ghost of Tsushima, Death Stranding or The Last of Us Part II in the State of Play announcements. However, there are some things to get excited about, with both Iron Man VR and Five Nights at Freddy’s VR (yikes!) getting announced.
In case you couldn’t watch the State of Play live, then we’ve got you covered. Check out all the trailers and announcements below, including a big, free update coming to No Man’s Sky which will allow everyone with a PS VR headset to play the entire game in VR. Let’s kick things off with what I am sure is one of the most exciting State of Play announcements, Iron Man VR, because who wouldn’t want to be Tony Stark.
