US PlayStation VR demo disc has 18 games, 10 more than Europe's


The US PlayStation VR demo disc has 18 games to try - 10 more than Europe's.


We heard details of Europe's PSVR demo disc last week. It seemed pretty generous at the time - now, not so much.

Both the UK and US get taste-test versions of Driveclub, PlayStation VR Worlds, RIGS, Tumble VR, Battlezone, Eve: Valkyrie, Wayward Sky and Headmaster.

But the US also gets trials of Allumette, Gnog, Harmonix Music VR, Here They Lie, Job Simulator, Rez Infinite, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood and Resident Evil 7's Kitchen demo.

PlayStation announced the US demo disc games last night, and it's fair to say the response from Europe since then has not been great.

So, why is there such a big discrepancy?

It may be that some of the games are tied up in regional agreements for various VR platforms - meaning developers have tied down demo or launch exclusivity to another VR headset.

It's also worth noting that PlayStation in the US and PlayStation in Europe are separate companies, and developers must deal with each when sorting out a release.

Until Sony explains itself, however, there's no way of knowing. We've contacted PlayStation here in the UK for an explanation.
