Beat Games announced that PlayStation VR users should expect the PSVR version of the hit indie VR rhythm game Beat Saber (2018) to arrive sometime later this year.

While it’s still uncertain exactly when PSVR users should expect to start slicing blocks to the beat, Jaroslav Beck, the game’s principal composer and studio co-founder, tweeted recently that the team is working full-time to finish the PSVR version.

We previously played a working prototype of the PSVR version at this year’s E3, and it was definitely a promising adaptation that generally worked well, although it bucked up against the headset’s tracking limitations. Here’s a quick blurb from our full hands-on:

At the game’s first showing on PSVR, here at E3 2018, Beat Saber made a promising impression. While the Move controllers don’t feel quite as responsive as the controllers on the major PC VR headsets, but tracking on PSVR was solid enough that I could handle the game’s tracks on the highest level of difficulty without much frustration. The only major issues came when my controllers exited the camera’s narrow field of view, which happened at one point in a song when I had to duck under one of the obstacles and hit notes while ducking, which ended up leaving my hands outside of the tracking cone, and unable to hit the notes.

[…]

Beyond the tracking limitations, the Move controllers physically feel quite nice for Beat Saber, considering that the shape of the handle is very hilt-like and easy to hold without accidentally squeezing the trigger during play. The haptics in the Move controller is also well suited to the game, offering a strong and satisfying vibration when hitting each note.

    They should fix the intensity on the Vive instead :/

    • Juan Ritz

      What do you mean by intensity?

      • kuhpunkt

        The vibration when you hit blocks has gone down a few weeks ago after some update. The feedback is just not like it used to be, which makes it less fun :(

        • Juan Ritz

          Oh interesting, I’m surprised that I hadn’t noticed.

  • gothicvillas

    Perhaps Sony is holding it back for a holiday season..

    Cannot wait to make a Beatsaber party, really!

      stop posting religious stuff in here, PLEASE. it pushes non religious people further away, which is the opposite of what your goal is. If i were full on religious i’d be mad at the way you’re presenting religion to the public. You dont even ask if we care or not to hear about it you just put it in front of us like an advertisement and ultamitly that hurts your cause more than it helps because forced opinions reduce your credibility. <– this is pure honesty here

      If you really cared about spreading the gospel you wouldn't just link up religious songs in a random forum board.
      Some of us just assume you're trolling for laughs.

      That being said the song was pretty nice :)

      And as expected HAIL SATAN!!

        Stop posting to stop posting religious stuff.

        • jj

          what you should have said was “stop posting anti-religious stuff” but it looks like you’ve spent too much time reading one book instead of reading any real books, so I understand your illiteracy.

          Now I love how you made multiple accounts just to spread religious stuff on a vr chat chain…but again this isn’t the place for your zombie fantasy worshiping.

          like I said before the more religious stuff you shove down unwilling bystander’s throats the more we resent you. posting religious songs out of the blue is a sure fire way to make us think you’re a crazy person which aligns with our overall view of religious people to begin with. so maybe if you’d stop being crazy for a second we wouldn’t think you’re insane.

          • jeff courtney

            Your suggesting I listen to you and you run a controlled free public post of opinions.If I did that I would be part of your ideology of believing nothing but today.Nothing of hope and nothing supernatural.Only the moment.Live solely for self,no standards,no values,no morals(only a state of mind but do whatever you want.So why are you promoting your standards then to follow your opinions? That doesnt make any sense at all.Praise Jesus!

          • jj

            what? are you insane? thats the babbling of a crazy person right there.
            No this is not the place for you to post your crappy religious videos.
            At what point did i say anything about no supernatural, living for self, no standards, no value, no morals?? if you really think everyone who isn’t a christian believe in no morals than you live under a rock. It’s one thing to debate religion, its another thing to just make shit up and put words in peoples mouth, now that you’ve done that you’ve proved your ignorance and inability to actually formulate a thought for yourself.

            and im not the only one whos told you to stop posting religious stuff. do you want me to pull those comments back up because I can.

            You should let jesus take the wheel literally and drive off a cliff.

          • Courtney A Jeff

            Excuse me for breaking your sacred bullying rules.What is that a high crime of treason to your futile minds and hardened hearts to come across my youtube.Insults,threats and only stall opinions on narrow minded views.Do you few that seem obsessed with following me,my posts and resisting not to reply to almost all my posts have anything to do but read my posts and reply with vicious ridiculous insults.Its vr,a new frontier…open to beliefs and religion.I leave my tag and signature of Praise Jesus!

          • Born’N’BredSheridan

            Essentially you’re spamming trying to build revenue on your Youtube channel. The fact that you’re posting religious views on a website that has NOTHING to do with religion is evidence of that. That is why people are getting angry with you. Now be a good boy and take your ball and go home.

          • Courtney A Jeff

            Actually I dont get many hits almost none.As a fellow gamer I thought other gamers and vr enthusiasts would appreciate some instrumental guitar.

          • Born’N’BredSheridan

            Don’t get me wrong, I love some instrumental guitar. Some of my favorite guitarists are Satriani, Malmsteen, Vai, Johnson, etc. but that still doesn’t change the fact that the primary point of your OP as well as the rhetoric you’ve used since is almost entirely religious.

            Nothing wrong with that so long as you keep it to a site that would appreciate it. This is NOT the place for it. This is a video games and VR website. NOT a religious website. You’re going to get strong resistance posting that kind of content here, and rightly so. It’s like going into a forum thread discussing the works of Kurt Vonnegut and suddenly screaming in peoples faces that Progresso soup is better than Campbell’s.

          • Courtney A Jeff

            I like all those guitarists too,yngwie had the biggest influence on me.I dont want to give you the opinion that I have started to preach all over again but as a evangelist Jesus said to go into all the nations and preach the gospel.Its opportunity to use the internet and meet people across our cast planet of cultures.In my experience I have offended people like Jesus and His disciples but also have made bonding friendships with people that desired and welcomed the encouragement from my faith and the message of Jesus and the cross of salvation.

          • Courtney A Jeff

            That hidden name you use seems like your hiding behind fear.Why not just be open minded and realize God made you as well as others?

          • jimConc12

            posting your youtube channel was a baaaaad idea.

          • jeff courtney

            Good idea

            BTW,its my own original material and editing.Someone besides yourself may appreciate it.Your speaking for everyone in vr on every site.Are you talking for others when you say we,who are you talki8ng about? Its just you replying and following so many of my posts.

  • On PSVR they will sell even more what they already sold on PC :O

    • crazysapertonight

      Without hight quality tracking like Oculus and Vive have, the game won’t be so cool
