We’ve hit the holiday season in a big way this week with news from Facebook & Microsoft – oh, and UploadVR’s very own showcase featuring big announcements, releases & updates for the upcoming year!
The first story in this week’s roundup is of Facebook’s acquisition of Beat Games, developers of the one and only Beat Saber. This, of course, is fantastic news for both companies, but it does pose a few questions: Will mods still be supported? Will the game truly be supported on other platforms? Or, as Ian questioned, will it become part of Facebook’s Horizon universe? Time will only tell on this one.
Phil Spencer came under fire a bit this week by saying there won’t be any Xbox VR because “nobody’s asking for it”. Oof. Even the Shu had something to say about that one.
The biggest release of the week is also up for grabs as this week’s competition. A Fisherman’s Tale is now available on Quest after its release on PC VR earlier this year, and I simply love it. But don’t take my word for it, our review is coming right up! There are 6 codes in the lottery this week, and all you’ve got to do is enter below.
And finally, we were amused and interested by your comments this week, including Alex’s rendition of how Sony must be reacting to Phil Spencer’s infamous comments.
We’ll catch you next week, but until then – which game reveal was your favourite from The Holiday VR Showcase? Let us know below!
