VR: let's play with the launch of Farpoint
In the still young world of virtual reality, play is a key element in the development of the sector. If pornography should, as often, be the driving force, including on PS VR, gamers are a prime target actors. Equipment, accessories, services, content and therefore applications are specially designed to switch players to the virtual side.
If some virtual reality games are successful (and interest big fish like Google), no title has yet marked the public to the point of becoming THE reference. VR is still looking for its Mario, Sonic or other Nathan Drake. The lucky winner does not need to be distinguished by revolutionary gameplay or a breathtaking environment. It must win the support of the greatest number. That informed players as neophytes find themselves there and hang on the proposed universe. Sacred challenge.

First record sales figures
Sony's bet, which has communicated a lot about this game to make it a reference among VR gamers, is starting well. In any case, this is what the first figures suggest. Farpoint is thus ranked second on the UK charts for its first week. A level never reached by a virtual reality game. A feat all the more remarkable as the title is only available on a single medium, the Japanese's PSVR. The previous best performance of a VR game was also due to another PSVR game, Worlds, launched at the same time as the headset.
