I only have PSVR, It's been collecting dust for awhile until Knockout League and Astro Bot released.

I don't own a headset, and for the most part I'm still in the "No" camp, as in I don't see myself getting one, but there's been some game releases that have tempted me more than a few times, I just have my worries about space, sound, wires etc. not to mention the price, I think even with a good Black Friday sale the price would still be too high for me to buy into it, but maybe if I get to experience it myself it'll change my mind on it. I love the fact that Dreams will be fully playable in VR, I can imagine some really cool levels/games being made, and I think that game will become a "big" draw for the VR audience too, but again, with how expensive the headsets are, and with new models seemingly coming out every year (PSVR is on its second headset already, right?) making me feel like my purchase will become inferior before I get any worth out of it, I don't know if it's for me yet.

TL;DR No I don't have VR, I'm sort of interested and have considered it a few times, but don't think I'll be biting yet unless I can actually try it beforehand and see if it's for me.



I do own one and it's awesome!

I have no interest in gen 1 VR. Maybe by gen 3 it will be advanced enough to interest me.

Same.

 

Not really interested until VR is fully there and fully realized and really refined, not to mention very cost effective. 



I dont have a VR system, but would like to try out "Summer Lesson", "Resident Evil 7" and the new "Astro Bot" game on PSVR :)


Astro Bot is maybe Jump'n Run of the Year and the best VR-Game. 89 % ratings, worldwide. In my opinion, its impressive for a VR-title. Here some words:
Gaming Age - 100 %
"Astro Bot Rescue Mission is an extremely fun and engaging game, and a dynamite addition to the growing PSVR library. At $39.99, it is an absolute bargain for what you get here. Once you start playing you will find it hard to stop. Games like these are the reason why I love PlayStation VR as much as I do. It’s a simple concept that works on so many levels here. If you have a PSVR system, Definitely check this one out, I can’t recommend it enough"!

Playstation Universe - 95 %
"Easily the best platformer and PS VR game on the market this year. Astro Bot: Rescue Mission is a showcase to how VR should be utilized moving forward. Astro Bot: Rescue Mission is a must buy".

IGN Italia - 90 %
"Astro Bot: Rescue Mission is a one of a kind platform game. A smart, funny, unpredictable game that testifies to how the VR can truly change any game".

IGN - 90 %
"The challenging platforming and natural implementation of VR make it one of the most interesting and genuinely new-feeling games in recent memory. Astro Bot Rescue Mission delivers on the potential of PSVR and is a must-buy for owners of the device".

Digital Chumps - 90 %
"Astro Bot Rescue Mission neatly unfolds platforming’s trick and tropes with immunity from the traditional hazards of virtual reality. Astro Bot is a treasure for PlayStation VR enthusiasts".



"The Last of Us 2" is officially Game of the Year 2020, worldwide. Ghost of Tsushima-Artwork:

I really don’t get this attitude. It’s fully “there” already. Would you have missed out on PS1 too because it wasn’t a PS4 yet? Honest question. If not please explain why not then but now.

I know you don't, I've seen you say this to another user and I'm sorry you don't get it, but you also don't have to.

I can sign all that. Just been playing two more levels and it makes me feel like a kid again. I’ve been smiling and giggling as if it was my first video game.

Why didn’t you answer my question? I don’t need to understand it, but I would like to. I can understand the money argument, but “not there yet?” 

Have you read the Astro Bot reviews the other guy just posted? Seems pretty “there” to me, don’t you think?

Because I'm not getting into a flame debate.

You don't need to understand my personal desire for what VR should be and where it should be at. 

I have the money to afford all 3 headsets, their systems and the hardware required, I just choose not to because I do not see it as being "there" yet. 

Reading the reviews doesn't tell me it's "there", it just tells me that a group of people think something is subjectively awesome. And going by footage, it's more akin to a party themed game than one that explores VR in various and deep ways. That and it's exclusive to one system, one that I've no intention of playing.
