PS VR Aim Controller Release Date

PS VR Aim Controller Release Date

Sony has announced the release date for its eagerly anticipated Aim controller will be 16th May. The bespoke gun controller has been developed alongside Impulse Gear’s new IP, Farpoint, a sci fi FPS for PS VR that releases on the same date.

Unlike the last generation Sharpshooter, this is a fully self-contained controller that includes triggers, buttons, joysticks and light ‘ball’. Sony is promising 1-to-1 tracking for the peripheral. No price has been announced yet, but Gamestop lists an Aim and Farpoint bundle for $79.99 in the USA . In the UK, Base lists the controller alone at £99.99.

Farpoint and the Aim controller were developed together.

Sony has confirmed it is working on further Aim games, but has yet to release any further information. Namco, we’ll take a new Time Crisis if you’re reading...
