It only applies to those who own one/can afford one of course.You’d understand if you had one.

That‘s exactly the thing...gaming started to bore me after 35 years. Just more of the same with very few exceptions. Not anymore...wasn’t this excited for gaming since the PS1 times. No new medium like a CD/DVD/BluRay ever did this.

So it's only a revolution for you and a very select group of people. That sounds like the lamest revolution in the history of revolutions.

 

So you’re saying N64 or PS1 weren’t a revolution either, because it took many years until tens of millions owned one?!

You’re just searching for excuses it seems. Circle jerking over the exact meaning of “revolution” doesn’t change the fact that VR offers a revolutionary experience. To acknowledge that doesn’t mean that it needs to replace anything.

I still have another week to decide; really considering picking this up when I get paid on the first of the month.

I'm reading specs, and finding out that it's a 1080p screen in there with 960x1080 per eye (half the screen per eye). I envisioned there being two screens, so that concerns me a little bit. I also don't have a PS4 Pro, and I'm not sure how much my experience will be hindered by not having one.

Is there anything in the device that prevents your eyes from wandering and seeing the part of the screen that the other eye is meant to see? Having never tried one before, do you think I'll be impressed when I first try it out?

I want to be convinced.

EDIT: Also, I'd probably get two games; thinking GT Sport and RE.

I own most of the really good games and the only games that made me want a Pro were Skyrim and GTS. Both get a substantial boost in resolution and detail with a Pro. Both are still fun on my base PS4, but you can clearly notice the possible improvement. 

Careful not to expect too much from GTS‘s VR mode though. It’s still very limited and requires to extensively play the game without VR in order to earn all the cars and get access to the tracks, so you can use them in VR mode. It’s limited atm, still the most amazing driving experience I ever had in VR. Dirt Rally is freaking great btw, even on base PS4.

Of course both eyes are separated from another in PSVR. It doesn’t make a difference if it’s one larger or two smaller screens. 

I haven’t met one person which wasn’t impressed with my PSVR yet. Be careful not to overdo it at the start though...RE7 is not really beginner‘s stuff, although it does have comfort options....I really don’t like stuff like step turning though, nor teleportation. Just make sure you take it slow first and allow yourself to adapt to it.

Best idea for the start is to get VR worlds and the two demo disks from the PSN. ( lots of great deals atm on PSN for PSVR software) I absolutely recommend checking out the Moss demo. Full game will be out next week!

So now it's only $199.99+the price of the console+the price of the shit you STILL need to buy to make it work? And you people wonder why it always conjures up imagines of the Genesis+Sega CD+32X fuckfest of my youth. lol

Have 32X sold 2M and about 10M games for it?

Sega CD did I think lol.

Well PS4 (even Pro) can't push more than the 960x1080 and both combined make a FullHD picture, so there was no point of going over it on the PSVR.

Sega Cd sold 2M HW and 10M SW in 1 year??? If you say so ok, even though I asked about 32X. Next let's see if Sony will get out of console gaming because PSVR bad planning broke them.

The Sega CD's attach rate was 7.3%. PSVR sits at around 2.7%. The choices made between 1994 and 1996 were the reasons Sega dissolved. Sega CD and 32X were fuck ups but didn't really cost them anything because they were just attachments to a popular main console. People could just ignore them and play Genesis etc. It's why PSVR won't end up hurting Sony. You can ignore it and enjoy a beast of a console.

I didn't ask about attach rate, I asked if 32X they sold 2M HW and 10M SW. You gone to SegaCD instead and even with it you got to a little above 2M sales (which PSVR got in it's first year and will keep growing).

The choices which included confusing the market and making meaningless accessories helped killing Sega, which doesn't seem like will happen to Playstation.

So sorry, it isn't even remotely similar cases. You comparison failed.

Oh, so with GTS, you can't play the whole game in VR mode?

I have honestly never even heard of VR Worlds; going to look into it when I get a free moment.

I'm mostly planning on waiting until March 1, but my credit card limit got a boost yesterday and I'm sort of considering getting it this weekend instead. I'm super impulsive so I'm trying to do my research first. If I could find a store where I could go in and try it out that would be ideal, but I haven't seen any in my area. A co-worker mentioned giving Best Buy a try.

Sorry for playing fifty questions, but is the 3D effect as good as a 3DS'?



I'm actually thinking of getting this on my way home from work today. I know the sale is for $200, but I'm probably going to spend much more than that, what with games and stuff. I saw on Reddit that it requires HDMI 2.0 cables, and I'm hoping that's something I already have at home, although I do not know for sure.

How badly do I need Move controllers? Assuming that none of them come with the system that's another $100 for 2 of them.

EDIT: Just looked into some of the bundles. There's a Skyrim bundle with everything I need, except I wish it was a different game instead (I already own the game several times over).

hahaha sorry, that just made me laugh. The 3D Effect in VR is above anything you have experienced on a screen yet. It feels completely realistic. You can judge correct distances, a building or animal really seems 5-10-50 meters tall, if it is in the game.

No, sadly you can’t play the whole game in VR in GTS. The power of PS4 simply doesn’t allow it. It’s just a very brief VR mode with a slow 1:1 A.I. race. It’s still impressive, but not a system seller imho. Even though just driving the Nordschleife in a Cobra a dusk is among my most memorable gaming experiences ever. Kaz has already announced more VR modes though, but atm no one knows when.

Dirt Rally VR offers the whole game though, as does Driveclub basically. 

If you’re buying you can try it out anyway, no?! You can always send/bring it back if you don’t like it. Although you need to be careful not to scratch your lenses then.
