Robinson: The Journey gets a permanent price drop on PlayStation VR

Robinson: The Journey - PSVR

Crytek announce a permanent price drop for sci-fi VR adventure, Robinson: The Journey.

Robinson: The Journey is one of the early highlights in the PlayStation VR library. It’s a substantial, and often sumptuous, science-fiction adventure that puts players in the shoes of Robin, the sole survivor of a doomed space voyage.

Despite the game’s high production values and reasonable length, it always felt slightly overpriced. We can only assume that Crytek heard that feedback – or the game hasn’t been selling too well – as they have now permanently reduced its price to a slightly more palatable $49.99/€49.99/£44.99.


It’s still not the cheapest PS VR game on the PlayStation Store but the cut will hopefully entice a few more headset owners to experience a title that – occasional tummy turns aside – is a delight from start to finish. And if you need more convincing, it has dinosaurs, too.

To coincide with the price drop – and to try to raise a little awareness, no doubt – Crytek has also released the first episode in a series of Tech Diary videos that will explore the creative and technical challenges of developing a virtual reality game. The series promises to look in the way VR rewrites the rulebook on world-building, player presence and, presumably, pricing models.

You can watch part one, right here.

You can get the discounted edition of Robinson: The Journey from the PlayStation Store. The game is also available from the Oculus Store and Steam.
