Diva X will be receiving a VR patch as well, but VR Future Live is a standalone app that is being built from the ground up for the headset. Players will use their controller as a glowstick to keep time with the songs along with the rest of the crowd.

No screenshots or a trailer, unfortunately, but Gamescom attendees can see a demo at the PlayStation booth in Hall 7.1
