I think people excited for the VR content should probably temper their expectations as it appears to just be a handful of bonus missions rather than integrated into the main story mode. It'll still be cool to experience though, I'm sure.

There's a limited edition Ace Combat version of the Thrustmaster HOTAS being released which means mine is going to be compatible. That's probably better news than the vr content.

Ah, the good old days of game companies using massive, mostly empty boxes to dominate shop shelves :wub: .

Screw the planet I want a game box I barely fit in a carrier bag and an instruction manual about an F-16 so complicated I have to finish degree in engineering to have a hope of understanding it as that's real value :D .

The VR game will very likely be hailed as the best thing ever by pretty much everyone and replace sex as humanities number 1 pastime.

Latest trailer with a smidge of VR stuff at the end. I've got everything crossed that the VR missions aren't just some kind of on-rails shooter. I don't mind if there is only a few missions but it needs to be full flight.

And so did I. As a 9 year old, I was pleased if I took the planes into the air let alone complete a mission. The ‘Falcon’ gamesi remember being particularly complex.

This looks good, but will it be a patch on 1996's F-16: Fighting Falcon? I DOUBT IT

Launch trailer:

I'll be waiting an extra two weeks for the PC version but I'm starting to feel the hype for this now. I've been playing 4, 5 and Zero on PCSX2 and they're such great games.

Reviews starting to arrive. Looking good.

The PS4 version has an ace up its sleeve – yes, I went there – and that’s the PSVR mode with a bespoke storyline and set of missions. If you’re lucky enough to have Sony’s VR headset you’re able to jump into the cockpit of an F-16 and physically become a top gun pilot. That is, if you’re not prone to motion sickness. Ace Combat 7 in VR looks incredible, sticking you in a realistic cockpit and allowing you to read the situation by being able to look in every direction (every single time I did this I heard Tom Cruise shouting “I can’t see him, I can’t see him”), but its utterly lacking in comfort options and that really hampered the experience for me.

Project Aces obviously feel like they’ve made the best possible Ace Combat VR experience, but it feels as though if you can’t handle the speed of the turns then they’ve not been willing to sacrifice any of the series’ trademark action. They’ve done their best to give you distinct items to lock onto, with directional markers helping you find the enemy, and the cockpit doing a good job of enveloping you in a solid location, but, in my case at least, it simply wasn’t enough.

The motion feels especially strong in Ace Combat 7, stomach-lurchingly so, and after one mission my head was swimming and my body was doing a decent job of providing the pool. It’s a massive shame, as PSVR support is likely to be a big selling point for a lot of people, but they’re going to have to be prepared that they may not be able to handle it. At five missions it’s much bigger than something like Battlefront 2’s X-Wing VR experience, and fans will lap up the return of Ace Combat legend Mobius, but that might only be making things worse if your stronger-stomached friends are having fun with it.


Vom buckets at the ready boys!

No comfort options at all makes this a hard pass for me. Hopefully they'll patch some in later on.

Having thrown up after playing the Battlefront X-Wing mission, this is a no-go for me. What a shame :(

I have this but can't play it yet as I'm about to go out.

I'll give my impressions some time this weekend and let you know how much sick was involved :slol: .
