This poster pulses with an appeal so broad the typical restraints of our societies fall by the wayside.

Holy shit, I had no idea Brian Gibson founded a studio. Awesome.

I might wait for PS4 Pro to play this.

Shouldn't it be out already? Not seeing it on UK PSN.
NOT SURE ABOUT THE UK, BUT ALL HELL BRAKES LOOSE AROUND 2-3 PM IN THE US!

I might wait for PS4 Pro to play this.
THEY MENTIONED PRO SUPPORT IN THE PS BLOG!

Last but not least, we’re excited to announce Thumper will support PS4 Pro from day one. We’ve worked hard to perfect Thumper’s graphics tech and the extra power lets us push our original vision even further. On PS4 Pro, Thumper will render at up to 4K resolution (With no upscaling!) for the ultimate high-gloss HD experience. PS4 Pro also enhances the VR rendering quality while maintaining the same rock-solid 90 frames-per-second. We’ll have more details on our PS4 Pro support soon!

Every piece of footage of this game looks like something from a 90's film about the future. It's almost impossible to discern what exactly is happening or how a human being is expected to "play".

Can't wait.
