Harmonix Music VR: The Dance detailed in new trailer

This dance party needs you and your music collection to get it started

Harmonix Music VR brings your songs to life across four wildly different experiences. We’ve already revealed two: The Beach, a relaxing, surreal landscape with hidden surprises, and The Easel, which allows you to create virtual 3D art that reacts to your music. Today we’re adding to that list with The Dance!

The Dance is a brand new world for Harmonix Music VR that lets you choreograph moves for whacky characters. Once you’ve got the party going on the dance floor, you can go to town with a variety of toys at the DJ booth, and even wreak havoc in Giant Mode.

We’ve had a lot of fun creating this world and seeing the silly dances people create. The Dance is a fun experience not only for the player, but everyone in the room! Seriously, once you start a conga line on this dance floor, there’s no stopping one from starting in your living room.

Harmonix Music VR features 17 songs, including music from our PlayStation cult-classic rhythm game Amplitude, 2014’s bullet-hell extravaganza A City Sleeps, and an entire album hand-crafted for Harmonix Music VR by Harmonix’s very own M-Cue.

17 songs not enough? Harmonix Music VR works with your entire music collection! Simply plug in a USB drive to your PlayStation 4 loaded with your favourite tracks to experience your music in virtual reality!

Get ready to unlock the power of your music library with Harmonix Music VR, launching alongside PlayStation VR this October.

We still have more to come in the months leading up to launch.

If you could also get Spotify integration working in game that would be the absolute.. erm, gamechanger! This looks incredible but being able to use Spotify in this would make it a million times better.

PSVR really is shaping up! So much content with new stuff getting revealed every day right now.

Just reinforces my opinion of the VR headset being a gimmick, yes no doubt VR will be a thing of the future but that won’t be the case until the size of the headset will become as slim if not slimmer than our current televisions. The headset looks too bulky to be comfortably worn for an hour or so. Also I wonder what effect this device will have on a players eyesight if over-used by game addicts.

For every action there is a reaction :)

Yet another comment by someone who’s clearly never used a VR headset. I’ve worn my Samsung Gear VR for multiple hours at a time without any issues, and the PSVR is far more comfortable than the Gear VR (yes, I’ve also tried PSVR myself!). As for eyesight… The optics in VR headsets cause the displayed image to be focused at infinity, which is the relaxed state for your eyes, so no real worries there either.

Yes MartinB105 you are clearly correct that I have no VR headset experience and thank you for your most knowledgeable reply on the subject.

However, i do like to keep up with the latest games and previews and what I have seen so far regarding future games and software line-up for the forthcoming VR system leaves me not with a feeling of excitement but one of indifference.

I would have no interest in playing any of the VR games previewed on my current set up let alone pay £350 for a VR experience. The cost alone will make it a niche market for latest-tech gadget lovers. The dust will soon settle on this product as it has done on all past Sony peripherals.

I’ve said it before: Lights off, headphones on…that’s all the VR I need of a night :)
