    PlayStation is hosting a livestream full of mini-announcements as they prepare for next week's major reveals at E3. One of which is a new PS4 exclusive created by the makers of Rez Infinite and Lumines. Named after the actual "Tetris Effect", the game takes its cue from the phenomenon where players continue to see images long after rounds of playing games. There's over 30 levels to play, and the game will support PSVR and will have a graphical increase on PS4 Pro hardware.

    Well, I was about to mock Sony for releasing yet another Tetris game, but that trailer was pretty great. Definitely brought Lumines to mind immediately.

    Lol, true. Though that was the case for Rez and Lumines too. Just add drugs for a cheap stay-at-home solo rave.

    I...did not know that was a thing. I forget which system I first played Rez on because it's been ported many times, but Rez Infinite in VR is a whole new level of mind melting.

    Rez was and still is one of my favourite games. I own multiple copies of it but due to the lack of a PS4 VR or VR Headset for PC, the VR version is not yet in my collection.

    So it's Tetris with a lot of particle effects to annoy you or what?

    Pretty soon they'll have an Tetris anime or movie starring Tet. The hero we didn't deserve.

    IMO this game looks fantastic and it's currently one of the upcoming games I'm most excited for. I love Tetris and Lumines but I suck at the latter - if it's Tetris gameplay, I'll probably be able to see all the levels at least.

    Puyo Puyo Tetris is pretty close already.

    Now, that's a proper PSVR game I'd play. It's a psychedelic trip I want to take. I won't even need to take LSD's anymore.

    YOU'RE LATE!
    Also, this is one of the most beautiful and symbolic trailers for a video game I ever saw.
    If it only wasn't a PS4 exclusive, I would own it :(

    I enjoy classic Tetris more than most of these spin-off's, but this trailer was pretty awesome. Mixing the classic Tetris gameplay with rhythm type gameplay may make for a cool experience, especially in VR. Be sure to take your psychedelics before-hand!!
