I was thinking about this recently.  I think it would be nice to have PSVR releases under its own category instead of under PS4. 

It would be easier to find only VR releases for one, and these games don't quite work without the headset even though they are technically PS4 releases.
It kinda reminds me of extensions similar to Sega 32X or CD, which have their own section in the database, so why not PSVR?

I see it making sense either way, but having the ability to search for only VR releases is a huge reason to have them separate.

Thoughts?

What about the releases that are PSVR optional?  There's games that have a VR mode but you do not require PSVR to play them.

Sadly it doesn't seem the site is quite setup to support this.  But looking at - for example - Fahrenheit.  It was one of the Sega 32X/CD releases.  Its in the database under both Sega CD and Sega 32X.

I would say if its optional it could go under PS4 or both.

That's a little different as the game came with both discs, both a 32x disc and a Sega CD disc.  So someone could technically have only one of the discs in their collection.  PS4 / PSVR is always on the same disc so it truly would be a duplicate entry. 

Having said that, they could maybe add an additional field to mark it as a PSVR game.  Like when you select a region, then it gives you an additional region field to be more specific, maybe they could do PS4, they an option to also mark it as PSRV.

I think there's quite a few extra fields that could be added to games (often console specific) and this could be one of those. Other examples would be motion control, smart phone control. Obviously theres some overlap here with the controller field but it would be could if these were searchable options.

So if I pick PS4 for example in the search screen, I get tick boxes pop up to filer by VR, smart phone control, motion control and so on
