The Pico 4 launches today, bringing some much needed competition to standalone VR and the Meta Quest 2. But what games can you play on Pico 4? Here are some of the biggest releases.
As we wrote in our review, Pico 4’s hardware “makes Quest 2 look outdated by comparison”. The content library, though, is a separate consideration, so here’s our look at what’s available on Pico 4.
Pico 3 Games on Pico 4
The Pico Neo Link 3 launched with a large selection of standalone VR games available in the Pico Store. Not all of those games are currently available on the Pico 4 store.
Many of those Pico 3 titles (Demeo, Superhot VR, Ragnarock, Walkabout Mini Golf, Eleven and Cubism, just to name a few) are available to play and purchase on Pico 4. However, UploadVR found that some titles that are available on Pico 3 (such as Synth Riders and Warplanes: WW1 Fighters) are not currently available on the Pico 4 store.
We reached out to Pico for clarification and will update the article if we receive a response. Developers are also encouraged to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with info on the availability of their games on the Pico platform.
Update: Pico provided a statement confirming not all Pico 3 content is currently available on Pico 4. It says developers are working to get apps and games updated for Pico 4 as soon as possible:
“Since PICO 4 has all-new lens technology and different controllers haptic feedback (Neo 3 Link is only vibration), developers have to set their games up for PICO 4. They’re working on it, and most of the games are available. The list is growing every day, so we don’t have a comprehensive list of what’s available on the different headsets, but in the VR assistant mobile app, you can filter the store per headset.”
