PSVR is finally here! We unbox the standard 400 dollar edition and detail all that comes inside.
Man I'm so ready for this,i haven't test anything vr(virgin eyes)and I'm ready for a new way to game. Day one. Eve,rigs,battlezone(right?),b atman and driveclub
I wish i had that sort of money. I'm going to buy the Pro first and maybe, down the line, the PSVR.
Dude, you should so 69 that thought! The Pro doesn't really offer anything new in terms of gameplay experiences, and if you don't have a 4K or HDR TV, then it's not really worth it yet. Heck even if you have a 4K or HDR TV, flat screen gaming is nothing compared to the immersion you get with VR. It gives you a whole new way to experience games like you never have before. If I were you, I'd first put my money down for the new and innovative PSVR gameplay experiences over prettier Pro graphics.
All pre-orders are sold out everywhere, tried every outlet possible. Just don't have the time to wait in line on launch for this.
@ArchangelMike There are also improvements for full HD owners as well, improved textures, improved AA and improved framerate on certain games(TR has three options, i think one of them is [email protected]) pretty sure devs wont just abandon full HD owners in favour of 4K owners on future games. I will be getting my Pro in Jan.
Soon the precious will be mine, not long now.
I'd suggest getting the psvr first. Pro won't offer that much new except prettier pictures, vr will offer a whole new experience.
Cant wait, day one as well. VR worlds DriveClub VR The one i really want is Star Trek: Bridge Crew thats out in Novenber though. I spend most of my weekends racing in VR anyway on Project CARS, so i cant wait for DriveClub VR.
Day one sickness for everyone, VR has failed.
you might want to temper your expectations day 1. As a VR user myself (Oculus Rift), take my advice. Ease yourself into it. Your body more than likely will take some time adjusting to VR. I wouldn't go nuts on the first day. And if you feel sick or dizzy at any point, take off the headset until you feel better.
Wise words Neo, wise words indeed. When i first got my DK2, i would be green to the stomach, but got used to it after a few weeks. Your body will adapt, be sensible and take short breaks and as Neo sayes, if you feel sick or dizzy, take off the headset and chill for a bit.
@SniperControl - when I got my CV1 and played that game Adr1ft, I almost lost my lunch, lol. But like you said, you get used to it after a little while. but you know there are going to be a lot of eager PSVR users who just want to dive in and experience everything. I mean if you have an iron stomach, then have at it. But it's definitely a good idea to take things slow. At least at the beginning.
Indeed. Been developing tools for OR and PSVR, and at first, it was a bit disorienting. Never felt quessy, but did get light headed the first few times....kind of like when you stand up too fast or something. I'd recommend everyones first few games be one's where you're sitting down, and take it slow. Don't jump right into Rigs, but maybe pick up a slower paced game where you can control the movement at a slower pace. The quesiness will come up quickly, maybe 3-4 minutes in if you're prone to it. At that point, pause the game, wait until you collected yourself, then go in for another few minutes. I also found I got over this most when I just started up a game and sat there and the only movement of the camera was with the slight movements of one's head that come naturally. It's less disorienting, and gives time for the brain to adjust. Once one becomes OK with it, should they have a problem at all, then go to town. But take breaks every 30 minutes or so, because eye strain can be annoying, particularly if you aren't used to such thing, or don't have artificial tears available to overcome it quickly. I personally wear contacts, so I always have rewetting drops....although I've found with PSVR I can actually take them out and see fine with my normal bad vision since the screens are so close.
No continue to play & ignore the signs, VR was meant for you to eat, slp, & shit with it on. It is safe so no need to worry.
My list will be battlezone, rigs, until dawn rush of blood, and possibly batman vr. I'm also going to be playing all my standard games in this headset "D
trust me, PC had VR for years before this...it was quickly forgotten
I don't care, pre-ordered one anyway!! Excites!!! I will get my entertainment value from the PSVR regardless of what happens in the future. If everyone takes a wait and see approach that only guarantees less support. I am fine with being an early adopter until others feel more comfortable about their purchase.
Fries1223 2h ago trust me, PC had VR for years before this...it was quickly forgotten Umm care to share a link to that Fries? until then you are talking out your hat, and why on earth would anyone trust you.
'years' huh? Please enlighten us!
god its EXCITING times. I've got mine preordered, paid for, and I'm READY.
Man, I can't wait to put this big thing on my head! Covering my eyes with a screen and cutting myself off from reality is going to be so dope!
Man cant wait two weeks to go!
Judging by your disagree's(?????), people think you cant wait two weeks... @fries Lol, you guys crack me up, i bet once VR hits the scorpio, you guys that dissed PSVR as a gimmick, will be all over it like flies to a week old turd saying it's the best thing in the world......
Majin Vegeta has always been quite an impatient one.
Or it's just from PC gamers who have had VR for years and know its a gimmicky thing like kinect for gaming but its whatever you wanna think snipercontrol
I don't think VR is a gimmick, I don't trust that Sony will support it well enough, and that's based on history. PS Eye, Move, Vita.
Oh Fries, you silly silly fanboy. Don't worry xbox will eventually get one too.
My friend doesn't have a Ps4 but he won a PSVR from Taco Bell so he decided to pre-order the PS4P. Gonna try it out with him :]
Can you ask him if I can have it?
I think your friend should give it to deadlyoreo.
Yeah right... ;)
Man, only thing I ever win from Taco Bell is extended trips to the bathroom.
Looks very nice. :)
Max Scoville is incredibly annoying! But I can't wait to get mine
The other guy reminds me of Harambe. Ace Ventura & Harambe unboxing PSVR.
I can't stand him. He thinks everything he says has to be funny. He is the definition of try hard.
PsVR sounds even better, more comfortable than I though. Contributors could have chosen better unboxing than these clowns though.
It's ign, biggest xbox fanboys on the net.
@Sniper... no that would be Ryan McCraffery!
its IGN, they are xbox shills. Notice they are negative advertising it. hate them with a passion, they do a disservice to gamers.
Lovely looking HMD and certainly keen to give it a try myself. Won't be buying at this point but maybe a few years down the line when the software has improved/diversified.
Clearly Sony learned nothing from Oculus and HTC in terms of packaging the thing though. Cardboard everywhere, yuck.
Meh, I'd rather pay less than have a fancy box. Fancy boxes imply that you're going to just put it back in the box. If that's the case, then it's probably not going to catch on that much.
I guess, don't get me wrong, I don't want my money going towards a fancy box either. But it's nice when you get something that comes in a nice, sturdy box that protects it from damage. Plus, you might not want to leave your headset lying around when you are done with it. Although I guess you could opt for one of those stands instead.
*licks lipsssss *
What a beautiful piece of technology art is the PSVR. Thank God I pre ordered. Guys, don't forget to pick up There They Lie on October 13. Is an horror PSVR game. Also, with PSVR, is time for a VR MMO like Sword Art Online or ALO. Bring it on.
Haven't heard of There They Lie, but I will have to check it out since I am a horror nut and that is my main hope for VR.
I have mine pre-ordered but still not sure what games I'll get for it.
Way to think ahead!
Lucky it includes a demo disc.
He can still use it for cinema mode.
No, you cannot use your USB headsets. They must be plugged into the 3.5mm port to get the 3D audio, since the 3D audio comes through the breakout box. Edit: Also, I can't believe that people paid to report on gaming news still think the PS4 isn't doing all the graphical processing and that the breakout box is around because it's not "powerful" enough. I think half of us could do their jobs better than they can.
you can use the playstation gold or pulse or platinum headsets with the usb doggle for surround sound. you aren't required to use the 3.5 jack
If you want 3D audio, which makes a huge difference with VR, you do need to use the 3.5mm jack. Surround sound and 3D audio are not the same thing.
Worst unboxing i've seen in a long time. Ign needs to just hang it up.
My god that IGN ad... ehem... video player. Have to watch on youtube. Cant believe I am giving them clicks but this is PSVR! I cant wait!!!
better video imo https://www.youtube.com/wat...
yeah buddy! Picking mine up day 1
Lol eye boogers. Any who I'll pass on vr.
Thanks for sharing TwilightSparkle I'll sleep well tonight, although I doubt there are many electrical sockets in the mushroom houses, down in Dingly Dell.
I don't understand your comment but if you thought I was being negative then you are mistaken. I can't do vr cause it makes me very sick, just like any first person shooter games and even the 3ds
Sony does amazing hardware. So cool. Really impressed with the quality and design of PSVR. This could really be the big hit for gamers this Christmas. Its the real deal for gamers that dont have or wont spent tons of money to have a huge PC and VR. Lets see if gamers worldwide will buy this. Maybe 10% of the 45/50 millions PS4 gamers can
way too many wires. i will wait for the wireless version late next year = psvr2
