BAM. Thumper comes out October 13th. Special edition announced. PSVR purchase confirmed.

A week or two ago on the podcast, I admitted that I might be swayed to buying a Neo this fall (if it exists by this fall) instead of a PSVR.  Then I backtracked and said that if PSVR launches with Thumper, I'm going to have to go with the PSVR.

Well, Thumper is launching with PSVR or October 13th.

It'll be twenty bucks.

And there's a special edition with a vinyl soundtrack from iam8bit.

Includes download code for the game (the game is $20 on its own), a code for a digital copy of the soundtrack and the full soundtrack on vinyl. 

Which is just... super-fucking-sexy.   But I'm not going to buy it because I don't have a stereo with a turntable hooked up to it.
"Thumper contains nine epic levels playable in both ultra-glossy 2D and fully immersive VR. Over the past few months, we’ve made many enhancements to take full advantage of PS VR. We’ve fine-tuned movement speed, the scale of the game world, and our visual effects to create an overwhelming sense of speed and monumental dread. It’s hard to describe if you’ve never been a space beetle on a screaming hell ride before. But no matter which way you play, we think you’ll feel the violence!"

Here's Thumper's extended trailer from back in March.
