But after Sony debuted its PlayStation headset, the crew determined to check out just a few ranges in PSVR, and found that “it worked out pretty well”, provides producer Noriaki Okamura. The consequence was that your entire sport was not solely remastered in 4K, however utterly realized in VR too.

According to Konami that may rely on how followers (and new gamers) react to Mars. The sport launches on PS4 and PC on September sixth.
