Nah. Ya need to get PSVR and use mobile VR for media only. Gaming is better on devices that have gaming at the frontline of their marketing like PSVR/vive etc. Quest may be better for games but the games may never come or few of them and it'll be a subpar experience for twice the price of PSVR on sale. 

I second this.

While "The Go" has some great VR experiences like Face Your Fears and The Diary of Anne Frank, and it's a media beast, it's pretty weak compared to the PSVR.

My Go is mostly for watching movies and videos (which it does better than the PSVR) but it's like comparing a PS1 to a PS3 or an early PS4 when it comes to games. I do find myself using the Oculus Go more frequently, though. Mostly because of ease of access. Just grab it and you're in VR in two seconds.

This is probably the first reason I'll never consider getting a 1st gen PSVR. It looks cumbersome with cables coming in and out, and chunks of plastic all over the place! That's the last thing that I want in my room.

That’s basically all I need to know. Thank you for proving my point.

Your point of what exactly?.

You want to brush over the folk who aren't interested?, why would you even consider doing that?, what ultimate purpose does that serve?. 

My point was that it’s hard to take people serious, who like you said “just have no interest in VR”. Those, in most cases, are people with prejudices. Why would you dismiss something without having even tried it? I’m speaking from experience btw. I know these stories. I was sceptical myself, man I know a lot of people who had the idea that “it’s just a screen strapped to your face” until they tried it. I just think it’s sad people react like that, when it’s imho literally the most exciting thing that’s happened to gaming in a long time. But that’s just the nature of it..it’s almost impossible to advertise it, so it’s going to take much longer than it usually would.



No. I want a PSVR.



My prediction in 2021.

SW: 30m

PS5 16m

XBS: 7.5m

Exactly. Just looking at YouTube where people are using them doesn't give much of a clue of how it really feels. It's one of the things you have to try to really appreciate the tech in it. The moment I tried out the Vive and saw how perfectly it all worked together and how it felt, I was purely amazed.

You know there’s always room for improvement, always will be..but as someone who started gaming with an Atari 2600 I cant help but feel amazed with what we have already.



I had a GearVR that has since been replaced with an Oculus Go. It's good for porn but not much else. VR still has some way to go.

Or you just buy better VR devices for porn. The better the resolution, the better the experience.

I tried PSVR one time for about fifteen minutes and go so sick I almost threw up, so you can understand why I personally never want to try VR again. I get carsick pretty easily, too, though, so it's probably a problem with me that VR advancement will likely not fix. If you're less motion sickness-inclined, it might be cool, though.

Go is already the most convenient device. Until PC VR devices get their shit together and make wireless headsets.
