The Virtual Horizon | Sacred Symbols: A PlayStation Podcast Episode 184
This week’s episode of Sacred Symbols is full of acronym soup. Let’s start with the biggest news: PSVR2. While Sony revealed PlayStation VR’s successor last year, we finally have new information, though — frustratingly — we still lack a release date or price. Along with fresh PSVR2 details comes a new game, too, something from the first party. It’s called Horizon: Call of the Mountain, and we’re eager to talk about it. Then: NFTs. Japanese publishers Square Enix and Konami are the latest to signal their intentions to enter the goofy world of the non-fungible token. What does it all mean for we gamers? We discuss. And how about TLoU? That stands for The Last of Us, of course, and compelling new rumors indicate a ground-up PS5 remake of the classic PS3 game is near. Plus: New details surrounding God of War: Ragnarok’s release date, sales data for both Ghost of Tsushima and Days Gone, a delayed reveal for Final Fantasy XVI, Tencent’s further expansion, and more, all capping off with listener inquiries. Are we underestimating Tom Holland’s value to Sony? What’s the deal with silent protagonists? Which 2022 release has the potential to be most disappointing? Is it okay to use your hand instead of a tissue when blowing your nose?
