Played Spidey (on Vive). It was definitely better than the previous promo. Mechanics were fun, I was surprised that they went for it, doing some actual VR web swinging. Not perfect, but certainly better than I'd expected. The rest of the experience... ehhhh. I'd almost rather not have bothered. I think it's a tease because they've demonstrated that they could do something pretty cool, but there honestly hasn't been any kind of budget/production value put into this. If they spent a little money they could make it look a fair bit nicer (environments), and with some solid design I could see myself happily getting lost in this world. Yes I know it's free, but I'd happily pay good money for a legit campaign building off these mechanics and with some compelling design.. I mean, VR really needs this stuff right now to advance the medium. It's not giving me too much hope for Iron Man, I have to say. I guess we will know more, shortly.
Have you read the gameplay previews for Iron Man? They're incredibly positive, and there's typically a massive difference in scope/quality between a free game and paid.

I'd wait it out. I've played like 100 hours in the game so far and will be checking out the VR update, but I wish I had never touched it instead and only tried it in VR. Unless the update sucks, but I can't control that haha

According to the PSVR group I belong too on social media, the long lost title Starchild is available for pre-order @ GameStop with a physical release date of 10/31/19. Starchild if you remember was a side scrolling game that showed potential back on the PSVR demo disc 2.0. Lets hope its not a placeholder and turns out to be a solid date, I'd still like to play this.

Blood & Truth demo coming to PS Store tomorrow.

If you haven’t played already, I strongly suggest you check it out.
I bought the full game a few weeks back and FINALLY got around to playing it a bit today. It's a killer VR app.
Seriously, Sony needs to be pushing this title HARD. Incredible experience so far. You're basically in your own
"big budget" action movie. Can't wait to play more but the VR mechanics are ace, easy to use and most importantly, FUN.

Of the 6 gamer friends that have tried at my house, all of them said something similar. Sony should have this in every mall or something lol. As gamers, we're so used to youtubing something to get an idea, but for VR that just doesn't work at all.
