    During its PS VR Spotlight event yesterday, Sony announced that 6 new VR games will launch on its device, among which is a VR version of Doom 3. Titled Doom 3 VR Edition, it features Doom 3 and its expansions, Resurrection of Evil and The Lost Mission, adapted for PS VR. These VR enhancements allow you to peer around corners, angle your shots using motion controls, perform 180-degree quick-turn and a wrist-mounted display to track your health, armor and ammo. Doom 3 VR Edition launches March 29 for PlayStation 4 and is backwards compatible on PlayStation 5.


    In addition to the VR version of Doom 3, 5 other games were announced that will come later this year, including a new game from the creators of Arizona Sunshine and an anime-inspired VR MMO. But no launch date was given for these games, with most having a vague '2021' planned release. You can find a trailer and a synopsis of those games below, along with a link to the game's PlayStation Blog post for more details:

    Surprised it took them so long to put DOOM 3 on PSVR, it had been modded in near-flawlessly for PC VR like five years ago. Several others here look quite good, however. Hopefully most get ported, if not all. I know I Expect You to Die 2 is most likely simultaneous release with PC.

    Doom and VR? Damn, I really do need more money, even though it's been out for the PC.

    The unofficial Doom 3 VR is really great on the Oculus Quest, so as long as they don't make it any worse than that I'd definitely recommend anyone stuck on PSVR to give it a go. Takes the "scary" aspects of Doom 3 and amplifies it a good amount.

    Can't wait for VR to be the main gaming experience.

    I'm really happy that companies are still betting on VR. VR is something that really gets me excited, but it is still something very expensive and barely accessible for most... PSVR at least manages to be much more accessible than PC VRs even if it is not of the same quality.

    Oh I'm betting they can do good things in VR with the PS5's power, especially considering what they did with 1080p on PS4. If they can manage anything close to 1440p OLED displays, it'll be gorgeous.

    Oculus is already there with price and accessibility, thanks to the rather insane adoption rate of the Quest lineup (which just recently became the most popular VR headset on Steam apparently :lol:). $300 for a complete VR setup is very affordable and very accessible given that you don't need to buy anything else, vs Sony's PSVR which will require a $350-$400 PS5 "base" purchase in addition to whatever they end up charging for PSVR 2 (which is probably $400+, just like the first PSVR, though I'd love to see them go down to like $300 just to try and compete).

    What we really need is more competition in the standalone VR space if we want to see more affordable VR for everyone, not so much headsets that require a secondary big purchase (whether it's a PS5 or a PC).

    I really hope this Doom 3 VR conversion plays better than Doom VFR or when I played Doom 3 VR on PC Eons ago. It was the only game to make me motion sick.

    DOOM...3? The one with not-DOOMGuy, and is more horror-ish and less blood-pumping-action than DOOMs 1 and 2? The one with the torch, from memory?

    Why?

    I have an app on my phone called DVR, created by Dr. Beef. It's been removed from the Play Store, but you'll probably be able to find the APK elsewhere. It's a Doom source port for Google Cardboard. You'll need a Bluetooth controller, but it works.
