Sirus Gaming's Editor-in-chief advices to hold off the urge of buying a PlayStation VR if you're considering one this Christmas.
Too late, already bought one and glad I did!
Ya really. F that, I bought one day one and it's awesome.
Of course he is right. I'm holding off for a 1080 Ti or Vega to drive a 4K screen and Vive.
Bought one despite having a GTX 1070 and a 4k/60-1080/120 screen.
Me too, Batman is awesome and I can't wait for RE7 and Farpoint.
Same here, farpoint looks like a next gen light gun game, and I really miss those old school light gun games.
Loving mine. He should hold off on his own instead of telling others to hold off.
Well I'm in no hurry to get one seeing as I just got the PS4 (3 years after it released). I figure there is a plethora of non-VR games to keep me busy until I find a deal on the HMD. I have played it though and it's cool so there is the potential for there to be some real standout titles by the time I get around to getting one. They will be there when I'm ready.
I have not bought a PSVR yet since where I live they are sold out and I don't preorder. I have no intention of buying a PSVR until I get a decent (ie. of 30 minutes) play on a demo one. If after that time I will be in the position to decide if I will buy one although only after it is available without preordering. Personally, I would rather get the PS4pro even though I already have a PS4. As far as I am concerned the PS4pro is really good value for the money considering you get a SATA 3 bus (up to 600MB/sec), a 1TB HDD and an additional 1GB DDR3 memory for system applications. Yes, I am aware that the 1TB disk is has a read of approximately 80MB/sec, however SSD's are dropping in price and even if I get a 500GB SSD say in a years time at a reasonable price that would be money well spent. I actually put a 120GB SSD in my FAT PS3 and it does make a difference with loading times.
30 mins? Not sure that's a great way to decide. I mean what if you only try games that you end up not liking and not the ones you would?
I always wait until people start bit'ching on Youtube how bad a product is before buying. at lease you get the Truth on Youtube about products. bet million Dollars get disagreement .
So you basically base your purchasing decisions on the amount of youtube bitching? I bet you take youtube comments seriously as well... 👏
I was just about to post the same thing! Zero regrets, its awesome and its fun when guests come over and try it out, they are always blown away.
since so many think i am always negative about this i will say this, you will probably have to hold off because its hard to find one. i think it is selling very well. now watch as i still get disagrees, lol
well when you put watch me get disagrees. People are bound to take you up on the challenge. i upvoted u on that one myself
You get all the disagrees because you're always in Sony threads spreading fud around. At this point I don't think it really matters what you say, people know better ;) Edit: As for this article, I'm happy with my VR purchase despite there not being many full fledged games. I've been having a blast with it and so has everyone that's come over to try it!
You get disagrees because of your rep Moldy. Same goes for a select few other non stop trolls.
But you guys rail on anyone who disagrees that Sony is God-Emperor of all mankind.
Rimfro - if you can show me which of my comments ever stated that I thought Sony was God-Emperor of all mankind I'll agree with your comment. But I'm guessing it's just a greatly exaggerated, broad generalization that really doesn't display anything except your anger about why ppl don't buy the same plastic box that you bought.
@Moldybread It's hard to find water with your eyes closed, my sister wanted the PSVR and although didn't get the launch bundle she wanted she found the regular one and bought all the other stuff separately because she played with my and tried the demos before launch
You get disagrees because you don't compromise your opinion and follow the herd around here.
He follows the Xbox Scorpio heard just like you do, but troll everything ps4 or xbone is going to get you a rep
Agreed Moldy. Still unavailable on Amazon in the UK. If it was poor people wouldn't buy it.
Lmfao! This guy really thinks that he's a celebrity or something! Hate to break it to you but NO ONE CARES ABOUT YOU OR YOUR OPINION.
Im waiting for some bigger games to come out for it like the new Resident Evil.
That's gonna be crazy in VR! Can't wait :D
FarPoint will be out soon with the launch of the Aim controller.
Same. Most games seem like tech demos so far and are not worth the money. Hopefully RE7 is worth the price of admission.
I am scared just thinking about it
Hold off if you want, but if XWing VR turns out to be a hit and you want one but can't find one, you know who to blame. @ninsigma Dec 6.
When is that releasing??
He did say "I hope Star Wars Battlefront Rogue One – X-Wing VR Missions will be great. Fingers crossed.", even if it's Star Wars, we still have this doubt that it might just possibly be a few minutes of VR Missions or even an hour. It's EA and DICE, what can you expect?
Then buy it digitally in it.
Looks like I'll have to get battlefront after all. Purely for the x-wing stuff of course.
X-Wing VR Mission, not Missions. Basically a cool tech demo to get bored with after one week.
I'm buying a PS4 pro before even thinking about VR. When I do things, I do them right. Hopefully some heavy hitting games hit the scene soon to truly take advantage of it.
You see that's my problem with VR, I thing that most games will always be 30mins-90mins MAX, your eyes can't handle 4-6 or longer in VR, so yeah I don't hold out for bigger games sorry. Image Destiny COD FFIX and Fifa, the time we spend in these game what damages would we doing to our eyes, I think developers don't want to be SUED so they won't make the games any bigger, I could be wrong then again I could be right.
I dont know about for others, but I was amazed at just how comfortable it is on my eyes. Not just talking about the overall design of the headset, but how comfortable my eyes feel with the optics so close in proximity to the eye. It is not like VR prohibits the wearer to blink or anything else causing undo eye strain. I'm pretty sure that Sony, HTC and everyone else that has headset have done some R&D on that. They don't want to get sued to kingdom come either. I have no problem playing in VR for more than a couple hours. Also I have yet to play a game that is in the time that you have described on PSVR.
@raiden, what damage? Where does it say vr damages your eyes? First I've heard. Hmmm...
Of course you would say that. If you're not interested in VR at all like you claim, you can't really say this is great advice. Because people who have the urge to buy one are NOT like you... I also don't get why you would even be in this article, but whatever...
Why would you care your never going to buy one anyway. LOL
Except of course when MS announce one for scorpio.
hold off your urge to read this dribble
What's the rush to get one? There aren't any killer apps and they are barely any good games.
I think its worth the price just for cinema mode great alternative to buying a new tv. Yes its not the clearest hd picture but it is still amazing the screens so big on the biggest setting i notice things in games i never have before. Makes me want to replay my old gamess on it.
Cinema mode is the worst reason to pick up PSVR. You do get a larger looking screen, but the image quality is a huge step back from the fidelity we are used to with HD. With new 4K UHD sets it makes it even more painful.
Yeah, but when you go watch a film on a 40 foot screen in the cinema, the effect is the same. The image isn't the sharpest due to the size of the screen, so it more or less replicates that effect. Granted, the clarity isn't the best, but it's not terrible either. You can watch things on there perfectly fine, and as soon as they start adding virtual environments, it'll be a nifty feature.
@big_dom_strikes_back Umm, you do realize you are completely overexaggerating? 40 foot screen? Well you don't get that in cinema mode, more like a 60 inch screen. I have a 55" screen, and when I put PSVR on in cinema mode, the screen size seems just a bit bigger than what I have. So no it's not like you are in a cinema. It's like you're sitting 5 feet away from a 60" screen. Big difference. Also you do realize that in a cinema, most movies are displayed in 2.5-4k, so you already have better quality in a cinema to account for the larger screen then you do at home (traditionally, 4k/UHD is changing this, until the 6k-8k shot movies start being displayed at cinemas in that way and becomes traditional). Not to mention, most people don't sit in the front of the theater. Unless a movie is jam packed, the front usually has 0-3 people and everyone else sits in the middle or back, thus sharpening the picture back up. The clarity is pretty terrible. I tried playing Plants Vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 and was getting my butt handed to me. 1) You couldn't see or make out the stuff and 2)It really was blurry and 3) It seems to introduce lag. Cinema mode isn't really worth much. Any true Cinema mode will be a 360 degree experience actually using VR, not what we currently call cinema mode, which is pretty much a joke.
@jmc, and you are underexaggerating. Google is your friend. The actual size is equivalent to 18 feet or 225 inches. 60'' lol.
I haven't had the urge to buy one from the beginning.
Too late I'm afraid! Just off of killing hoards of zombies in the brookhaven experiment and then tried out the charming wayward sky demo (which I will now be buying soon). No regrets!
There's How We Soar coming out in a few days!
Hadn't heard of that until now, just looked it up. Looks kinda like Eagle flight except more artsy and charming. Not too pushed on it though myself.
Definitely worth purchasing now, all those saying otherwise probably have not tried one or even own a ps4.
That's a bs excuse. If you have money burning a whole in your pocket buying one now would be ok. VR is incredibly immersive but the games are lackluster at best. Just because some people want to have software to justify the hardware it doesn't mean they haven't tried it or own a PS4. There are quite a few tradeoffs being made for the level of immersion we gain. Game length, depth and visual fidelity are taking a huge hit.
I disagree not found the games lack luster plus that is you opinion not fact, there are many highly rated vr games such as rigs, batman, Eagle flight, thumper, rez and many other that scored 7s plus. And yes there are people on here commenting that do not own the headset, as you see them.on every PS article trolling. Regards the points you feel are a concern how do you expect that to change if nobody buys the product? If gamers took the same stance 40 years ago there would be no games consoles. You have to back new technologies if you wish to see them grow.
@Death, lacklustre my ar$e. The only thing lacklustre is your constant downplaying and trolling.
Im holding off on VR for a couple more years.
Dont worry. Looks like shovelware tech. Tossed in with Nintendo's powerglove
The psvr tech is a great entry level VR. if I told you to hold off it would only be because there's a severe lack of compelling games. Or I'd say wait for resident evil....but you risk the chance of not finding one if too many people catch on. If money is not an issue I'd say get one if it is an issue wait until you see more games for it you might like. Bottom line is if you game VR should be on your list of tech to get. VR is the one tech the industry never gave up on and it's here to stay. If your still not sure than I'd say wait for the next generation of VR. Either way if you intend to game expect VR to be a part of it now and in the future. No matter what platform you prefer.
Gear VR, even cardboard is entry level... True it's not quite as advanced as vive, but vive is.normally 800 dollars along with a 1100 dollar PC. Vive and Rift also have their problems, fuzziness etc. PSVR is very comparable. Also @ the author. If everyone took your advice there would be no PSVR2 or vive2 etc...
Agreed. Well said.
I'm selling mine. The resolution is just too low and the games are not fun and feel very cheap.
Dark Sniper purchased his PlayStation® VR with the intent of becoming the ultimate companion device for his PS4 Pro and he could not be more pleased. PSVR has truly changed the way we play video games. With the technology Sony Interactive Entertainment has bestowed upon us, we are now able to duplicate a real life experience within our own living room. PlayStation has an infinite library of titles that can be a great compliment to PSVR and enhance the overall gaming experience. Hopefully we will see Jumping Flash VR at PSX this weekend. Dark Sniper truly believes that PlayStation VR and Pornhub is a great reason why now is the best time to buy a PS4 and get closer to the action than you've ever been before. $niper
Lol at the pornhub bit 😂
I love this guy😂😂😂
