    The peripheral’s design

    The device is topped with a slim circular platform onto which you rest your feet. This platform rests on a rounded bottom half. The combination makes for incredibly intuitive movement: you simply tilt your feet in the direction you want to move. The more angled the tilt, the faster you’ll move.

    It allows for life-like motion. You can walk straight, sprint while taking a corner or stop exactly where you want to, in a smooth, seamless way.

    No sticks, no buttons. Inside the device are IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) and pressure sensors which track your movements and translate them to in-game motion. We’ve demoed the 3dRudder at numerous shows and events, and everyone who has tried it has commended the seamlessness of the experience.

    To use the 3dRudder, you just need to plug it in to your PS4 console via USB. No additional setup is necessary and the device is compatible (and combinable) with PlayStation Move motion controllers, the PS VR Aim controller, and Dualshock 4.


    How it improves your PS VR gameplay

    Shifting motion controls to your feet frees up both your hands for action, giving you the possibility to move and act simultaneously.

    Imagine yourself playing a first-person shooter with a PS Move motion controller in each hand. You come under fire. Thanks to the 3dRudder you can use your feet to dodge incoming attacks and leave your hands to concentrate on firing back, while glancing round for additional enemies. It’s simply a more immersive experience.

    “It provides a different kind of gameplay experience,” says Mixed Realms, the studio behind Sairento VR (coming soon to PS VR). “The 3dRudder is an innovative device that provides a whole new form of movement for VR gamers. We see it as the hoverboard for virtual reality experiences.”

    Carbon Studio, the creator of The Wizards Enhanced Edition agrees. “The 3dRudder allows for a more free, precise, and intuitive control: besides freeing up the hands, the controller allows for more kinds of movement.”


    25+ compatible games at launch

    Ultimately, 3dRudder is all about offering a new, thrilling experience to PSVR players. We are happy to confirm 25 PS VR games will support 3dRudder at launch:

    120 quid to look even more like a tit? Lol.

    It’ll be interesting to hear hands-on from actual VR users rather than marketing flimflam because I’m not sure about that (and yes I realise that my aversion to VR doesn’t make me the most unbiased observer)
