You should update the poll and title to proper VR with 6 degree's of freedom or ad options for, mobile 3 degrees of freedom, 6 degrees of freedom fixed and 6 degrees of freedom full room scale. There is such a jump in quality and experience between them they should not be lumped together. I've often gotten answers from people who say they've tried VR but it was on a phone, that is laughable compared to 6 degrees of freedom and even 6 degrees of freedom is kinda pathetic compared to full room scale but to a lesser degree.

My knowledge of VR is limited. I know there is a difference in quality, but not what they are. What should I put as the different options?

Oh and I've owned PSVR since November 2017 and still love it with over 120 games and experiences and often boot it just to catch new Youtube content. I've breifly tried full room scale with Vive, had a good long go of the Oculus Quest and same for Samsung Odessy. I liked the Oculus Quest overall the most but it has the majour draw back of lack of games and power so if they could somehow blend the Vive's catalouge quantity with the quality production value and design of Sony titles like B&T, Wipeout VR and Astrobot into a more powerful Oculus Quest with the PSVR helmet design I think that would be peak VR even without better battery life. It's hard to go back to PSVR after full room scale and perfect tracking but I still manage to do so and still love it, Blood and truth was one of the best games I've played this year. Might even but Sirento one of these dry December days, I hear the port is good.

6 degrees of freedom allows you to move your head in any direction in 3d space and same for your hands. 3 Degrees only allows for fixed movement on the x, y and z axis. It's the difference between being able to poke your head through a door opening or just being fixed in place more like a 3d film that surrounds you. 3 degrees is great for Youtube and porn and what not, 6 degrees is great for games with interactivity and full room scale, well you obviously know that, that is just an offering of more movement, full 360 movement with crouching and walking around your room one to one with no need to control your character with buttons or sticks to get from A to B. There is a balance between full room scale and say PSVR though such as the OG oculus which offers more freedom in 360 turning but not exactly full room scale.

VR is a great immersive experience.
Even watching 3D movies on the cinema mode on PSVR is a much better experience than watching on TV.

Try Ace Combat 7, Astrobot and RE7 on VR they are all great.

I've been using VR since Rift dev kit 2. Astrobot is the best VR game I've played.  PSVR does a great job with it. 

PSVR does not do a good job in theatre mode.  The screen door effect ruins the experience.  I've never watched a movie in the higher-end units.  But, I'm skeptical that even those are good enough for movies right now.  But, I agree that this is theoretically a good use of VR.  The tech just isn't there yet.

As I've mentioned other times on VGC, the coolest experience I've had in VR was watching a live boxing match on my Samsung Gear VR.  I felt like I was sitting in the front row.  That experience convinced me that VR will be a great way to experience sporting events.  However, due to resolution and screen door effect limitations, even high end VR only works for things that take place in a very small area right now.  Basketball will be good soon, I think.  But, we're a good ways from being able to follow a baseball game or golf in VR.  Those sports currently look terrible.  The time will come though that we'll all be sitting behind home plate, courtside, and on the 50 yard line.

I use VR for about 2 years now and I barely play any games without VR anymore. I use PSVR for all those great PS exclusives, a cheap Lenovo Explorer on my laptop and an Oculus Go for watching movies and stuff. I plan to get the Vive Index next year and maybe a new computer. My GTX 1070 isn't doing too hot in newer games.

But yeah, once you go VR, you'll never want to go back.

It is quite interesting. Astro bot is quite fun.
Thought I would get sick because I have a lot of motion sickness - but I did not.

There is an ocean demo where you are underwater now that was pretty freaky. Looking down and just seeing more water instead of a floor is kinda creepy.

Do not look down on VR

Had PSVR since launch and really enjoyed some games like Astro Bot, Tetris Effect and Wipeout. No Man's Sky is also good in VR, if you already like the concept of NMS. Unfortunately, I don't play in VR much due to the small added hassle of cleaning and wearing the headset, plus I have a gen 1 PSVR so it needs unplugging if I want to play an HDR game, so that adds a little extra complication.

I still think that VR will improve to the point where the extra hassle of wearing a headset is more than made up for by the awesome experience of VR. I'll probably be day 1 with PSVR2 if that ever happens.

Well I'm comparing watching 3D movies on TV with glasses (and we know the problems with it, bluriness, it needing a very fixed head position and smaller screen). On PSVR you get 300" equivalent at under 6' distance, can watch laid down or any position, image is quite clear, etc. But yes it need to improve.

Yeah, VR is amazing. In my decades of playing games, I’ve never experienced anything like it. I have PSVR. Best games I’ve played are Thumper, Beat Saber, Astro Bot.



Yeah once but without any connection to gaming. Rode a VR roller coaster in September. The experience wasn't bad but the video was kinda blurry. However there was barely any time to adjust the sharpness. I guess video resolution wasn't a problem in this case. Headset was a little heavy and I felt a little dizzy but that wasn't much of a problem for the 5 min ride.
