GTFO of here with your constant aggressiveness. We really don’t need negative Nancies like you in here. Play Astro Bot and tell me again it’s not “there yet”!

lol. So now the goalposts are shifted once more to "You tried VR headsets dozens of other times including all the top rated ones of the past two years, but you haven't tried the latest one so your opinion doesn't matter!"

If I play Astro Bot and I'm still unimpressed you'll just shift the goalpost to "Play (insert top VR title of Q1 2019 here) and then tell me again it's not "there yet"!

It's not there yet. It's not close to be being "there" yet, and one game is not going to change that.

It seems like you’re on a personal crusade since we had this discussion a few months back. You’re always attacking me, getting aggressive and trying to talk me down. I won’t engage anymore. Do what you want, it’s pathetic. Not willing to waste my time with someone who constantly and willingly takes everything I say out of context just because he has lost faith in VR and is depressed because of that..no matter how it’s really developing, nothing is gonna change your mind at that point.

Edit: And concerning your PS1 comparison:

There is no right or wrong, but saying the PS1, which gave us games like Tekken or Crash Bandicoot, wasn’t “there yet” would be just as one sided as saying PSVR/Vive/Rift aren’t in their first gens.

there is only 1 way to stop the fox hamster taking over our VR threads, never reply to him

You'll notice that my arguments have little to do with VR and most everything to do with people claiming that those that don't think VR is the greatest thing every "must not have played it/must not have played X game/ must have been playing it wrong/can't afford it and are jealous".

Did I say anything  along the lines of claiming that people who enjoy VR are being insincere or are wrong for liking it? No?

Then maybe you're barking up the wrong tree.

If you want to have a conversation with people and only hear the side that agrees with everything you say, try a reddit subreddit with some overzealous mods. But around here I have every right to comment on VR comments and call out people's nonsense as I see fit? Don't like me calling you out for your nonsense? That's pretty simple - just quit the nonsense.

I’ll take that to heart.



(Thread warning)

Let's stop with the aggression, and try to keep things civil.

Not even close. There's plenty that's going to change my mind. First - much better headsets, second - much better prices, third - much better sales, fourth - much better games. You need all four that is going to convince me that VR is "there yet". So far, all you have is a little bit of #4.

You honestly think if someone played Crash Bandicoot in 1996 and was unimpressed with it, and decided that 3D game consoles "weren't there yet" they were "wrong" for having that opinion? Then eight years later, saw one of their friends playing, Metal Gear Solid 3 for the PS2 and decided that 3D visuals, controls, and overall gameplay expereience were finally impressive enough to invest in that they'd be "wrong" for having that that opinion? That's foolishness.

Let me tell you an anecdote. I can remember getting Crash Bandicoot when it came out as a greatest hits title, and showing it to my father, whose job has always given him access to the bleeding edge of technology (he was part of a project that developed one of the first 3D televisons for example). He was incredibly unimpressed, and I was kinda shocked. So he broke out his laptop and showed me a demo video of one of the projects he was involved in, and it became very clear to me why he was so unimpressed. The difference between what his client was rendering realtime, and what the PS1 was putting out was night and day. Sure it was great for a $200 console in 1997, but that wasn't my father's standards. Last Christmas I brought my PS4 Pro home for Christmas since my brother and I love to game when we get together. We were playing a game of Madden, when my father walked into the room and said "Since when did they start playing football on Wednesday?". When I told him it was a video game, he was shocked. He couldn't tell. Now his eyesight isn't what it used to be, but you get my point. He clearly went from being unimpressed with game console 3D graphics to being very impressed with game console 3D graphics.

Ohh , and by the way. PSVR/Vive/Rift aren't "first Generation VR headsets". They're like.. what? 5th? sixth? But definitely not first.

Having been playing mine recently, well until Astro Bot and now I am loving it again. It's slowly going in the right direction, can't wait for blood and wine.

It's heavy, a pain to setup, but sometimes it just requires the right game to get you back into it. If there was a PSVR2 I would certainly buy one.....

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 think the Oculus Go had some of the best image quality around when it comes to watching videos (including porn). It at least blows the PSVR away.

 

I'm just here to say I've been playing Astrobots Rescue all morning and IT IS FANTASTIC. I'm getting thrills I haven't had since Super Mario Galaxy. I usually don't praise Sony because they seem to follow the cinematic gameplay route a little more than I'd like. This game is pure creative game play, and joy. I LOVE IT. It must be played to be appreciated!

Hm... Moss made it over to Rift / Vive... Maybe they also port Astro Bot one day….

Moss was not developed by a Sony owned studio. It also uses the DS4 in unique ways which couldn’t be done on PC.

Don’t bother. Not going to read that or any of your further comments.
