PlayStation VR Games Latest News: 'Dead Or Alive Xtreme 3' Getting PSVR Update, Sony Revives Demo Discs
With the release of Sony's PlayStation Virtual Reality (VR) headset on Oct. 13, some games -- like "Dead or Alive Xtreme 3" -- are expected to get an update to take full advantage of the technology. It has also been revealed that Sony is bringing back the demo discs to make consumers aware of the power of the PSVR.
At the recent gaming festival in Tokyo, "Dead or Alive Xtreme 3" publisher Koei Tecmo confirmed, through its producer Yosuke Hayshi, that the game will be updated for the PlayStation VR in October. However, there is only an Asian version of "Dead or Alive Xtreme 3" and the game remains unavailable in western territories like the United States and United Kingdom, per Daily Star.
Siliconera reports that the update to "Dead or Alive Xtreme 3" will also coincide with the release of the PSVR on Oct. 13, which should enhance the game's existing features. In July, the game already received a Doki-Doki Attention update for additional items. It will also receive a Photo Paradise update in September.

Meanwhile, in pushing the sale of PSVR headsets, Sony is expected to release demo discs of its upcoming games, which should be perfect for PSVR playability. Sony used to release demo discs during the early years of console production and before the advent of downloading demo games became the norm.
Sony's senior engineer, Richard Marks, confirmed the release of the demo discs in a video interview with GamesBeat. The demo discs will contain five minutes' worth of playable game. However, the executive did not specify which of the titles will be included in the demo discs. It is expected that the discs will be released
Previously, Sony announced that gamers won't have to wait for the PS4 Neo to be able to appreciate the PSVR headset. However, a more expansive room might be required to play virtual reality games on the current PlayStation, as Parent Herald previously reported.
