The team at PlayStation have once again outdone themselves with the launch of their next-generation virtual reality gaming headset, the PlayStation®VR2. And to celebrate the occasion, PlayStation Australia has teamed up with none other than the hilarious Aussie larrikins, Aunty Donna, for a skit that’s guaranteed to have you in stitches.
In the skit, Aunty Donna’s Mark Bonanno is eager to showcase the immersive experience of the new PS VR2 to his mates, Zach and Broden, by having them play the game, Horizon Call of the Mountain. But things take a hilarious turn when Mark realizes he accidentally double-booked his mates and only has one headset.
But fear not, for Mark creates a makeshift headset to replicate the PS VR2 experience, complete with haptic feedback and adaptive triggers of the Sense controllers, 3D audio, and a 4K OLED display. And to make things even more interesting, viewers are challenged to spot which headset is real and which one is fake.
The skit also gives viewers a glimpse into the stunning environments and deadly machines from the world of Horizon Call of the Mountain, which is specifically designed to take full advantage of the innovative features of the new PS VR2 Sense controllers. With Horizon, you can fully immerse yourself in the world of Horizon, climb towering peaks, swim through treacherous waters, and encounter various machines as you unravel a new mystery and try to redeem yourself as Ryas, a former soldier.
The launch of the PlayStation®VR2 has been a game-changer in the world of virtual reality gaming, and Horizon Call of the Mountain is the perfect showcase for its capabilities with a lot of people comparing it to the ultimate VR title for quality and gameplay “Half-Life Alyx”.
So if you are new to VR or a seasoned player, PS VR2 has something for everyone and there’s never been a better time to jump in to VR.
