its the old argument that we need games, sony had some good ideas with just their demo disk on how to use the vr and tv screen as 2 separate screens and should support it more but all 3 platforms need to stop fighting for exclusives and work together to get vr more games.

Unfortunately its the way Sony always go with their non norm console gaming hardware and it dies out with lack of support (ie psp, vita psvr). dont get me wrong, i'm not fanboy bashing - i bought and love them all and to date re7 in vr is one of the best games i've ever played - walking into the main hall room and seeing the size of it was amazing as was the first moment i got the pistol and aimed it.

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.



 


Most useless gaming gimmick since 3D.

PSP, lack of support? What?



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.

No it isn't. His point is that PSVR is selling very well but the others need to sell well too. 

The fact that PSVR has so many units out there not even including the extra 500k units this thread is referring to is enough to warrent a big demand for content. And there are tons of VR games even big games, the price of the others is very high and that's what is putting consumers off. 

PSVR going to PC will just mean PSVR gets more sales and the others struggle EVEN MORE because there is a cheaper option. 

That doesn't make any sense whatsoever.

What does he care how well the PCVR market is doing when his VR is selling gangbusters? Sony is mainly concerned about one thing, and that is their own business. Their business is slow because there isn't enough content because VR is struggling to appeal to the mass market. To appeal to the mass market VR needs to offer experiences that they can't get anywhere else and VR needs to be established as a mainstream medium. All this comes back to content. More content = more potential customers. Imagine if Netflix decides to produce all their new shows for VR. Suddenly the donsumer is there and VR is in everyone's awareness because there is now more content that people would actually like to see.

So why isn't there more content and why isn't Sony happy if their HMDs are selling so well? Because Sony doesn't make money through hardware, but software. More software means more bucks for them. It also brings more people into their eco system which is all they really want. So how do you get more content? You open your market to more content which will increase consumers, which will increase demand, which will increase content, which will increase the public image of VR, which will increase Sony's profits. And that's what they want.

Don't try to tell me they're concerned that other VR companies are not making enough money. They aren't complaining that they're making too much money, they're complaining that they're not making enough because the competitors aren't doing free marketing for them by having strong sales of their own.

You're still not understanding.

They're selling perfectly fine, they could move it to PC and sell more but they don't need it. They need the software, yes but other headsets need to sell better for even more software to come out. They're healthy right now and they're making money, it's the longevity that's an issue and that's why other needs to do well.

Putting PSVR on PC isn't going to help other headsets sell better. It will make them sell worse.

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?



Dann those are good sales
