So Sony put a demo out.  Do they have any games that they published that are made ground up for VR or just that demo?  I'm clueless on VR because I still think it is a generation or two away from mass market appeal.  They gotta at least shrink down those head units for me to be remotely interested.

 no - just the demo disk and 2 of the demos were really good ideas, there was a platform game that just made me smile seeing the little robot around me and me moving from a camera perspective as the level progressed.  Then there was a game where i was in a bar seeing cartono cowboys and people saw a character on the tv screen and had to describe him to me where i had to pick him out of a room of people.

 

Both really good, fresh ideas and then did nothing so far - its a real shame.

                               

Eh.  I played the demo at a friend's house, and it reminded more of Wii U's Nintendo Land than anything else.  Some fun, but nothing mind blowing.  By contrast, I was immediately and completely blown away by the Rift's free demo "First Contact".  

There are games on the other platforms that require participation from others not wearing the headset as well.  For example, "Keep Talking And Nobody Explodes" has the VR wearer in a room with a bomb.  The VR wearer has to accurately describe all of the features of the bomb in order for those not wearing the headset to walk him/her through how to disarm the bomb via a manual on the tv screen.  I played it with friends on the Oculus Rift, and it was a lot of fun.

Damn, they're complaining because they're selling too much lol. They could dominate all of the market with PSVR2 if they support PC. I really hope they will do that, it's better for the consumer to just buy PSVR and have it work on 2 of machines. HMDs should be interchangeable, just like controllers.

I can't see PSVR headsets selling for use on PC.  The people buying PSVR are PS4 owners buying a PS4 peripheral.  If you are going to do VR on PC, you're going to get a much better headset and guarantee yourself the much better experience.  At least you should, or really what's the point?  I don't believe there are many people out there who were not interested in buying a PS4, but only did so later to play PSVR.  Similarly, I doubt there are many people who really want to experience VR on their PC, but are holding themselves back from doing so because PSVR isn't compatible with it.

You cannot complain that there is no competition on the market when you yourself completely isolate yourself from it. You were the one completely splitting the market by tethering your device to your console. So either allow other HMDs to work with PS4 or bring your HMD to PC or shut the fuck up.

There is no competition on the market because you want it so and you god damn know it.

Or maybe vive and occulust need to make better and more affordable devices on PC?

I don't know, $399 for Oculus headset + Touch controllers + 2 sensors + Eve Valkyrie this summer was pretty damn enticing for me.

Also, for everyone saying that PSVR is the market leader, and Oculus is in dead last, they are ignoring the fact that Oculus supplies the software to Gear VR (5 million headsets shipped iirc).  Sounds like a win/win for Oculus to me.
