PlayStation VR, The Spark’s Verdict

It’s finally here!  PlayStation VR launched worldwide this week to critical acclaim and fan excitement.  Our very own Mr Early-adopter, Antony was there on launch day and now has a PlayStation VR at home and he is loving it!  We are happy to report in our PlayStation VR verdict episode of the Lost Spark Podcast that PSVR is a hit in the Chesson household and is blowing Antony away everytime he uses it!

On the podcast this week Darren (@DazWhitham) and Antony (@ChessmanUK) walk you through the setup, the features and the must-play games for PlayStation VR.

In Antony’s extensive play-through of PlayStation VR the standout games and experiences were Batman Arkham VR (of course), London Heist and Ocean Decent, which are part of the PlayStation VR World disc, plus Superhypercube and the amazing 100ft Robot Golf.

This week saw Rockstar Games tease the two images leading up to the announcement of Red Dead Redemption 2.  Due to launch in Autumn 2017 Red Dead Redemption 2 will be an “epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland. The game’s vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience.

Culinary couch co-op, marriage tester and Lost Spark favourite, Overcooked is now available to buy in a box with an extra helping of content included.  Overcooked: Gourmet Edition arrived hot out the oven for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and marks the game’s first physical launch.

This super-sized serving also includes a side-plate of DLC named The Lost Morsel which adds six extra levels and six new chefs to unlock over a fresh jungle-set map.

As if that wasn’t all! The guys also discuss a recent survey on gamer buying habits and are very surprised at the results. Find out in the pod if you’re standpoint on Digital vs Physical purchases sides with the Spark, the Survey or maybe something else!
