This may be a silly question but can you watch stuff on the PSVR? (ie. Netflix)

Yes and it's awesome, 5.1 virtual surround sound which even with the standard buds is pretty great but with a good headset is better than actual surround sound imo. That and a choice between a 70 incher, 9 footer or a cinema size screen.

Btw, when you do get it. Wait for the upcoming sale. There almost on a clock and we are due for one soon in the EU, pretty sure the US sale is on going and when November rolls around you'll be able to whip up all the titles you missed out on dirt cheap.

By any chance did you vlaim the PSN freebies when they were going?

Congrats on your future purchase.  Make sure to check out Moss when you get it.  It is a very engaging game that shows VR does not have to be all about FPS games!

I have started studying at university and there were a bunch of stalls for different clubs and different companies.

Here in the UK we have CEX it's exclusively for buying and selling used games, anyway there was a PSVR booth they were running and they only have Driveclub VR working so after talking to the manager (who I'd actually met a few days ago when I traded in Spiderman) I got to try it out..



Long story short, I'm buying a PSVR next week.

Sony, just before Christmas last year, had a stall in my local city shopping centre which had a display and had PSVR at it. I had a go at Gran Turismo VR, it wasn't setup to my vision, wasn't the best of games for it but I enjoyed what I played.

I like the idea of getting it but wonder if I'll ever use it as much as I think and that's my worry. After WipeOut which I'd have to get (haven't bough PS4 version as I have it on PS3), what is there to play? What is the "killer app"? I fear I'd spend £250 then do nothing with it.



Hmm, pie.

Wow thats awesome!  I feel like everybody that's tight on space should get one of these instead of TV then lol (maybe all those people in Japan that live in really tight spots)

Have yet to try any VR... Would like to at some point but not sure I'd invest considering the set-up necessary.

There are many killer apps on the device now to make it less of a peripheral and more of its own system. It depends on what genre you like but games like moss, Wipout VR, Sprint Vecter, Skyrim VR, Blasters of the U, Farpoint, superhot VR Re7 VR are all must play games imo but it's more about the breath of the rest of games, I've bought 60-70 titles now since I got it last December or November and I've had fun with 90 percent of them. There are very few games that I were flops and even the bad games end up being somehow fun. There is a saying in the VR community that VR makes everything better and while it's not always the case there certainly is truth to it. I've found n ew or renewed love for genres from this thing. It's well worth 250. I paid 400 and would pay triple that I love it so much, Near a year of play and I hav'nt slowed down on it as new and interesting stuff is constantly releasing and the extra features like a virtual home cinema system, 3d films, the porn, the mini experiences and media apps are all more than the cherry on top put aldo things I'd rebuy the device for alone, if something happened to mine.

Hah, yeah. For loners anyway, you can only use one ^^. That's the problem and while PSVR is extremely comfortable you can't exactly multitask. It's a great companion to a TV and an easy substitute for a home cinema system but I wouldn't go as far as saying a replacement for a TV unless you are a recluse and never intend to eat or drink alcohol or do other stuff like roll cigarettes etc while watching TV. 

A better solution would be an oculous GO but it's still a substitute device and not a replacment device.

Yes, I believe you can do everything under cinematic mode. 

Good to know, thanks!

I tried using it for a bit in watching Netflix but in the end I stopped.  I have a 4K TV and PSVR video mode is way to low resolution to make it worthwhile.

If you hook your headset into the headphone port and have social screen on you can avial of the surround sound even though, you won't get the full effect. Not sure if it works with 4k though or the old breakout box.
