Is VR Skater the best thing to happen to PSVR 2?

I've found it, VR Skater is the game to save PSVR 2 from its doldrums. The launch of PSVR 2 could have been better. The new VR headset looks to have sold only 270,000 units by the end of March. But don't let that put you off, as the team at Perpetual are about to deliver, what could be, a system-seller.

So PSVR 2 sales are slow, that 270,000 figure (as reported in Bloomberg via the research group IDC) is below where Sony would like its new tech to be. But VR game design continues to surprise and suggests PSVR 2 has legs, or wheels. Just when I think developers and artists have done it all, a new VR game teases a whole new way of gaming in virtual spaces.
