Memory Lane

In addition to the announcement about the anniversary, Tomatis also shared comments from some of the developers, especially when they first got their hands on the PS VR.

Masachika Kawata of Capcom shared that he was always interested in the technology and that his first experience with PS VR was the prototype for Kitchen. He added that he liked how the scare factor was increased because of it. Meanwhile, for Chandana Ekanayake of Outerloop Games, it was the demo for The London Heist that completely sold him on the potential of the hardware.

Stu Tilley of Firesprite revealed that he had great memories of PS VR, especially when playing Thumper. He went on to say that it was becoming the Dark Knight in Batman: Arkham VR that made him realize the PS VR would be a game-changer.
