P.T.: the VR version on PlayStation 4 will be released on ANTVR

ANTVR, the ‘all-in-one’ VR head-mounted display (HMD) that managed to raise over $260,000 USD via a Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign in mid-2014 has new information to share. The reason why this exceptional HMD is particularly interesting is that it can run on a wide range of devices, including PS4, PC and Xbox 360.


This week at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) the company behind ANTVR has announced that it will be launching on the console with a VR version of first-person horror title P.T.

Further details are still missing, but ANTVR promised more info to come next week. Still there are lots of questions to be answered. ANTVR needs console videogames to be 3D-ready to translate them into VR and P.T. doesn’t offer such compatibility. It was revealed shortly after P.T.‘s launch in August 2014 that it was actually just a ‘playable teaser’ for a new entry in Konami’s Silent Hill series. We have no idea whether Konami is working with ANTVR on this compatibility. Let’s hope that ANTVR itself will offer the answers next week.

ps4pro.eu_SilentHills_ANTVR_3While P.T. was a free and relatively short experience, it still was an amazing turned heads last year thanks to its inventive, bold approach to the horror videogame genre. Players simply walked down the same corridor repeatedly, having to rely entirely on their own initiative to solve cryptic puzzles and eventually make their way out of the environment.

The game was so immersive that it led VRFocus to speculate on the chances of Silent Hills, the videogame that it was teasing, ending up being a VR compatible project. Even if that’s not the case, it seems like fans will at least get the chance to experience the terror of P.T. in VR.

ANTVR have a 1080p display with a 100 degree field of view (FOV). The kit comes with an ‘all-in-one’ controller that is able to morph to suit several needs including a grip for a weapon, wheel for steering or even a traditional controller with buttons.



The tech also features a one-step position tracking system, allowing players to move in-game by placing one foot forward, backward or to either side. Right now it’s not completely clear when the device will launch for consumers.
VRFocus will continue to follow both ANTVR and P.T., reporting back with any further updates on this story.
