At the start of the E3 gaming expo 2016, Sony announced a first-person shooter called Farpoint, compatible with PlayStation VR and a new controller called PS VR Aim. This is no SNES Super Scope, though, as we found when playing the game ahead of launch.
The PS VR Aim is shaped so you can hold it like a rifle pulled into the shoulder or fire from the hip. The controller uses a similar system to the Move controllers for PS VR – hence the big pink orb on the front – meaning it will mirror your movements in the real world. So, if you point the gun to the side, it’ll move that way independently of your head movements. Pulling off badass shots without even looking should now be a gaming possibility – and in Farpoint you can literally look down the barrel should you want too, rather than just firing off the hip.
