The Oculus Rift is one hell of a piece of hardware, but it does have one weird shortcoming: some light leaks in around the nose area. Thankfully, one of the brightest minds in the industry has stepped in with a … well, he’s calling it “a solution.”
Great stealth troll, Yoshi. Well played :P
No need to take offence bud. Just light humour.
Your comment is just that, love Shui.
i am not offended, i was actually in agreement
light humor. i see what you did there
Is this Sony's new way? You know trolling everyone, first MS with their physical disc lending video campaign with Yoshi, and again this with Yoshi. That's low. I expected more from Yoshi.... Now Iknow to expect less.
what do you mean new way? they were like this at the beginning of last generation too until they realized hey, maybe we aren't invincible.
They are expert trolls.
@moldy: You are right. I completely forgot about the insane statements Sony made about the original Xbox, or how they used to act until they was thoroughly beaten by the Wii, and finally only broke even with the Xbox 360. I guess, Sony is returning to their own arrogant self. I hope MS and Nintendo doesn't when they turn around their business!
Did you ever see the original crash adverts? Sony have done this from day dot, plus the fella is only pointing out a solution to a problem that he has with a product he likes, nothing wrong with that bud.
If there fanbase likes it I guess they are just doing what works.
Is that all you can find? It goes both ways with many jabs from Greenberg or even phil talking about paying for 'games you already own' for example. Shu has posted many many pics and comments actually promoting VR from the competition and this somehow trolling/funny pic is but a droplet in the river of praise he gives everyday to them.
At least when Sony trolls it's rather humorous more often than not. I can't really say the same for other trolls out there....forum or corporate.
It's not very creative nor practical. Creativity would imply a cool game character hanging from his nose. Practicality would simply be something that's not all that obtrusive.
The thing is we know he s actually a real fan of VR and he posted many other pics and tweets actually promoting VR from the competition. Not the same thing as some real consistent 'trolls' in the comment who pretend to be shocked.
The people here complaining about a little fun he's having need to relax lol.
Its not a stealth troll. Yosh also says in the replies further down that it works for psvr to as that has light leak from the bottom to. Seems to me he's just giving a handy tip
He even admitted that he does the same thing with PSVR because it has the same problem so calm down people, it's just light hearted humour
His Twitter. Check the tweet and it's literally a few replies down. Again, just proves it was light hearted
"Source?" Though he already provided one; next time why don't you take the time to find it yourself. Then if you find him to be wrong, you can gloat about it.
@ChrisW Actually no ChrisW I think I'll continue to expect people to back up their claims and not spend hours randomly Googling it myself. I guess people on trial should expect the jury to go find the evidence that finds them not guilty too right? My God, what an asinine reply.
How about he does it on his company's PS VR unit and post that? A troll, is a troll!
Calm down, it's not a big deal. Tough, we already know why you're being so dramatic about it.
Does the PSVR has an issue with light leaking in?
I didn't see anyone freaking out about it, but he probably should have left it alone. I can't imagine he is naive.
Don't worry greatgamer some people just don't read the posts. I seen the bit about psvr and I only spent 5 minutes looking at post.
I actually don't mind the gap if it's like the Oculus DK2. It actually helps you see where your keyboard or controller is.
HTC Vive is the one true vr experience.
Its a defect. The competition should step their game up. Its not Sony's fault they can find flaws in the competition.
Well actually psvr is said to be the worst in that way.
Nice, I wonder how he fixes with the PSVR's resolution and frame-rate?
Did Shu upset you?
I like Yosh but perhaps he should have left this alone. It comes across poorly when you point out your competitors flaws. Even if it is "light hearted" or masked as a positive.
Perhaps people should stop getting upset over someone pointing out a flaw with a product. Shu even states PSVR has the same flaw so he isn't attacking the competition.
I don't think people are upset. I think it's no different when people say the same thing about other reps from other companies. People are going to over analyze any figure head. Whether they are right or not. Which is why he shouldnt. Because people turn everything bad. That's why you don't risk it.
Not even sure why light leaking in would be an issue to begin with for any of the systems. You're talking about having rather bright light sources already a couple inches in front of your eye, not the periphery, so the light leaking in shouldn't even be noticeable under normal circumstances. I've used OR in a well lit office, and never had a problem with it, even though there is a bit of light seepage.
This comment section is Salty from a joke.
Calm down is just a joke. LOL
