So Farpoint was released with the PSVR Aim controller today, and the reviews are starting to come in for the first true First Person Shooter for PSVR.

Seems like most of the reviews are in the vein of this one:

- Lots of kudos for the AIM controller and how well it works as a VR gun controller. This is super encouraging.
- Game is getting dinged for being short - 5 hour campaign - and a pretty mediocre "on rails" shooter that's a little dated compared to non-VR AAA FPS titles.


It's $80 for the bundle that includes the controller and the game.

I want to get this, but will wait a bit to see if we get a price drop.

I'm tempted with this as well, although I'm keen to see what games will use the controller in the future.

So - I went looking for this today after hearing really great things about the game from Beeano and RC, and unfortunately it appears to be completely sold out in retail. Even Amazon is out of inventory until June 2.

Seems like they under-projected the initial demand as the word of mouth of PSVR users is way better than the reviews.

I'm gonna go ahead and place an order on Amazon, which is offering it for $64 with the Prime member discount.
