Yep! You do not need PlayStation VR in order to play Ace Combat 7 :)

Thank you guys so much! Some of my best and favorite moments over the past year and a half have been on Ace Combat Infinity. I currently run Acepedia, the Ace Combat encyclopedia, and I could not be happier to see AC7 on the PS4. Best of luck to you all at Project Aces and Bandai Namco!

For me, this was THE best thing to come from the PlayStation Experience keynote! I was also completely against PlayStation VR however I want it just for this!

Ni No Kuni II ‘and’ Ace Combat 7? What a stunning return to form from Namco Bandai.

Gameplay footage please.

On the face of it this seems like the perfect game for PlayStation VR – if you played the game you’d be sat in a chair with a helmet on holding a controller; if you were to fly a combat plane in real life you’d be sat in a chair with a helmet on holding a controller…

Even though I’ve never really been into flight sims before this news has actually gotten me a little bit more interested in PlayStation VR…

For the love of god, DO NOT USE THE DOG FIGHT SCRIPTED CAMERA TRACKING FROM ASSAULT HORIZONS!!!! This feature completely turned me off to the game…it took away skill, and what makes Ace Combat such a good game series!

PlayStation VR price on £288, it’s under accessories tab for playseats.


Seems like a placeholder price because it has gone up now…. £295.18
