Box Art Design For Physical PSVR2 Games Revealed

As the next generation moves on from its initial pandemic-induced problems, we finally see its true potential. One of the things that show us his promise is the coming PSVR2, the sequel to 2016’s PlayStation Virtual reality. The hype surrounding the new headset from Sony was insane with a large number of units in production.

Probably the main reason for this hype is the games that this brand new headset will launch with. New titles like Horizon Calling from the mountain and exciting games from developers like nDreams have raised expectations for PSVR2. And now Sony has revealed the packaging that these next generation virtual reality games will have on the shelves.

Great takeaways

  • Box art for PSVR2 games has surfaced via an Amazon listing.
  • The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners- Chapter 2: Retribution-Payback edition gives us our first look at what physical copies of PSVR2 games will look like.
  • It’s minimalist and very similar in design to PSVR’s box art, with a tweak in the color scheme.

PushSquare first reported this cover reveal to the masses. But Amazon is actually responsible for leaking this box art via a listing for a PSVR2 game. As you can see below, a Walking Dead game gives us our first look at what PSVR2 games will look like from the outside.

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners- Chapter 2: Retribution-Payback Edition is the very long name of this game. Its presentation on the Amazon website gave us a look at the new box art for this generation’s PSVR2. Honestly, there aren’t many surprises, and it’s very similar to the previous design.

In this edition’s box art, there is a similar sentence on a banner below the PlayStation 5 logo header. The content of this banner is also similar to the previous generation’s box art. We can see in the image that the banner reads “PlayStationVR2 Required + Requirements.”

PlayStation 4’s PSVR banner was similar and it also went on to say:PlayStationVR required.” Both of these had the headphone logo at the beginning of this sentence to the left of the box art. Therefore, the similarities are clear for anyone to see.

The only minor difference between the two covers is the “2” of the next-gen PSVR2. But apart from that there is only one other major difference between the two boxing arts and that is the color scheme. On the PlayStation 5 and PSVR2 cover, the banner stating that PSVR2 is required is in all black.

Meanwhile, on the other hand, the PlayStation 4 and PSVR boxing’s banner has two primary colors. The PlayStation VR part of the cover is in the popular Sony blue a large part of the last-gen. Similarly, the “Require” part of the banner is complete whitecontrasts the blue on both the PS4 header and PSVR banner.

Therefore, the only major difference between the two covers is the shade that Sony has given each generation. The black and white on PS5/PSVR2 contrasts well and so does the white and blue in the previous generation. Sony did a great job making it cover art.

The overall complexion of the PSVR game box art has remained the same in these two generations. Just a little banner with a sentence that gives the actual video game box art room to shine. We can’t wait to play some of these games when they are released in the flesh.

Although physical games aren’t big sellers on PSVR, they still come out in the form of physical copies. Most players prefer digital versions and will continue to do so for PSVR2. But for the small number of players who do like physical copies, this box art is great.

Not many want to deal with the hassle of discs when you have a VR headset strapped on. But seeing these beautiful covers will make everyone want to collect these games. PSVR2 starts up February 22, 2023and we’ll be there to grab the headset and its games.
