Victory Point: PlayStation's Virtual Reality turned one year's old today, and they have made an announcement of what the future will be like for VR.
The future is not VR
The future is not one thing. It has many paths and VR is one of them.
Agreed. The path in gaming is more than vr/4k!
Are you from the future?
I can agree that the future of gaming as a whole is more then just VR or 4k. But it's not going anywhere anytime soon either.
The future is going out and smelling the fresh air with a pikachu in the distance while holding a togepi in your front baby carrier while you search for Charmander as you hike up mount doom. Literally speaking of course
Thats like saying the future not ps5 of course it is psvr is being promoted like a console though its and attachment aka peripheral of ps4 no one is saying psvr will replace flat gaming i love psvr and dont want it all the time in every game but psvr is the future meaning another way to enjoy the greatness that is PlayStation right now and more greatness awaits
I disagree i think VR is here to stay
I'm in shock that anyone can make $12929 in 1 month on the internet . why not try this out>>>>>>> ;>>>> http://tiny.cc/online-jobs-...
Thats amazing!! Those web cams were a great investment I guess.
Hey buddy go on some movie sites or porn websites or some crap this is a gaming website, your not gonna scam any gamers ;) Damn bot...
So we have regular comments getting marked as spam but these boots run roughshot around this site... Great.
The future was revealed one year ago with PSVR release. No other medium comes close to the immersive feeling of being in VR. Flat screen gaming is still great but has lost some of its luster when you have flown in the air, flown in space, driven a car or had a taste of first person combat in VR. Some flat screen games now seem boring or limited because of VR. It's so compelling if you can manage being able to play in VR that it's hard to go back. As for games, 100 games and experiences and the announcements keep coming with another 60 games by early next year. That's a lot of content in such little time but great games are already being offered. Everyone has their favorite list of games they bought or are looking forward to. So I'll just say "Keep it coming Sony." Immerse me some more.
I agree VR is great, there are truly amazing games made specifically for VR that could only work in VR. However not all games work in VR, for example FPS. Yes there are some FPS out that done in VR, but they all pretty much have one thing in common, they lock the player to the spot, only allowing you to warp to where you want to move to. The reason for this is that a lot of people get really bad motion sickness if they allow you to move around like you can on a normal FPS. About the only way around that is by having a full walking rig system where you can fool your brain into thinking your actually walking forward, instead of your eyes telling you your walking but your brain saying "no were not, were sat on a couch".
Yeah for those that struggle with motion sickness are at a huge disadvantage when playing VR and having to walk. I thought though that Farpoint had good controls even playing on Dualshock 4 is was engaging and fun. The wife took one step towards a cliff and was like nope I'm done lol.
Not all FPS lock you. Farpoint for example does not. Also, even when they lock you in place or allow you to teleport, it doesnt mean the experience is not amazing. For example i believe Doom will be like that but VR offers something to FPS that a tv doesnt. So while its not the same experience, its definitly an experience of its own. Problem with VR is that they cant show you what VR does, on a 2d screen and so some people looking at a VR ad dont understand how great it looks inside VR.
I think people can overcome their motion sickness if the game allows it. Just need to go carefully. Like when your learning to swim.
"The future was revealed one year ago with PSVR release." Meh, first gen VR is already old and archaic considering the tech people have been working on on the VR space. There's wireless VR, cameraless VR, and many other improvements already in the works. PSVR was a nice start but to say it revealed the "future" of VR is pure hyperbole.
You take things too seriously...PSVR paved the way to the future when it comes to console/living room VR. Now it all comes to down to both devs and consumer to choose (or not) this path.
That seems sad if you can't go back after playing VR. Almost like it ruined normal gaming for you. :( It does however make me pretty hype to try it out if the experience is that immersive.
Pody, I can still play them. I still plan to play Spiderman, HZD Frozen Wild, Detroit, etc. But in the back of your head, you will wish some of the games were in VR in some fashion. It's a strange but awesome thing if you can handle VR. It's like playing a racing game compared to driving a real car down the California coast. Driving the real car has your full attention and is more interactive. More immersive. VR is the closest way of "being there" without "being there." Or take the AIM controller. Shooting with a controller and shooting with what looks like a rifle in your hands in VR are totally different. The immersion of holding it and seeing it in VR makes most shooters seem lacking. Have you ever played The House of the Dead, Virtual Cop or Time Crisis in the arcade with guns? Which is better? Playing on a controller or with that simulated plastic gun? That's what I mean. The more you play in VR, you'll see that limitation of flat screen gaming. Just ask anyone who's played RE7 in VR and on a flat screen TV. Their impressions will tell you that VR is better and scarier.
Obviously there are enough gamers who enjoy VR to keep it going. It Is an uphill battle rejoicing PlayStation VR against ignorant, negative word-o-mouth spread by envious, cash-strapped gamers. And while, yes, there are some of you who have VR and claim don't like it, there are ten times more who do. This is the fan zone—and we're here to suggest you haters blow off.
Agreed. I don't have one and have only used one a couple settings from my brother and it is an addicting experience. Love it. I beat Rush of Blood. The Batman game. Some Farpoint. I'm a little scared to play Resident Evil 7 but might have to put my big boy underwear on and give it a go. Soon I will buy one. Soon.
I love playing games in VR and can't wait to play shooters like RB6 on it one day. Uhm....how do we know ten more people VR over disliking it?
Partly from how much energy PlayStation is putting into it—Sony wouldn't be pushing this many VR games/experiences next year if PSN servers showed only one or two hundred thousand players enjoying it. Also there are tons of articles and reports about it. So, it has a considerable amount of attention. I'm looking forward to see if Sony and/or third party make apps to allow compatibility with whatever Facebook is coming up with (or YouTube/social media in general).
Well I gues Bravo team game probably will be for you then (especially with aim controller support) ..and if I remember correctly Team alpha or something like that..good times coming for PSVR :) (Well..they already good..but will be even better) :)
I bought one and returned it a couple days after. Wasn't for me. But I will def give it a shot again in the future.
The the cost goes down the VR market will grow
This was barely news. Old and just a smidge of the real news. Love PSVR though.
VR is FANTASTIC! And PSVR is a great way for console gamers to experience just that. I took my PSVR unit up to my parents the other day as my father has a PS4. And seeing both my mother and father trying VR was worth it alone. I kid you not. My mother screamed and laughed constantly for 5 minutes as she flew down the road in VR Luge in PS VR Worlds. It is a medium that can get anyone excited. It's so powerful and immersive that I cant wait to see where VR will be in 10-15 years from now.
Loving my PSVR, still waiting to give RE7 a go. Now that the weather is breaking and now being cooler its a good time for longer playtimes, as the HMD will make you sweat. So far my favorite game has been Farpoint followed by Until Dawn: Rush of Blood. Playing DriveClub VR with the Thrustmaster T150 steering wheel has also been a blast, still get a great sense of speed even in VR. Day one purchaser of the PSVR and not regretting it one bit, can not wait much longer for Ace Combat7 and Golem. Also I'm curious to see how that army game something Bravo or Bravo Team plays, hoping it has full movement options like Farpoint , VR needs more FPS type games as the Aim Controller is perfect for them.
you should try dirt rally in vr if you have a racing wheel, it is superb:) dirt rally and res7 in vr are some of the best gaming experience i have ever had. Peace:)
Been thinking about getting Dirt Rally but was really on the fence as I've never played a full rally game and was unsure if it would of been fun for me. Of course now after reading your recommendation for the game I go and check to see if the VR sale is still on and it isn't. May bite the bullet one day and just get it anyway regardless of sale or no sale.
let me play my games in VR without it being gimped to hell and I will gladly asking price
where are you dreams :'(
Untill they improve motion to stop you feeling like you want to throw up its not going to be mass market. Improving the location of the headphone input wow come on sony try harder.
It doesn't do that to me.. 🤔 Is the tech broken, or are you? People are different. No doubt tech and software will improve, but let's not get it out of proportion. A friend of mine can't play fps, because "too much spinning, makes me puke", but I'm pretty sure it's him..
Price is too high for masses. $200-$300 would be awesome price for the package.
$199.99 actually. But I agree. VR needs to be cheaper for it to spread faster.
Yup. Lower the better :D
I've been wanting the PSVR for the longest time. Just money is so tight right now. But I will definitely grab one soon.
What I find trippy about people here is that so many people are hella impressed with the PSVR when things like the Oculus Rift and Vive are even better...way better according to a friend who owns the PSVR. And headsets are still coming out. It's only a matter of time before VR becomes a MAJOR player. Stuff get's cheaper all the time.
I've heard people say the completely opposite actually. It sounds like PSVR does the job really well with a bit less graphics quality.
Who says otherwise? I know that, for what it is, PSVR is impressive enough but to say that people think PSVR is BETTER than Oculus or Vive? Please, that's just a straight lie or those people have never really tried, in depth, the Oculus or Vive. Everything about the PC VR headsets are better from the lenses and resolution to the tracking accuracy and the Touch controllers for the Vive and Oculus I KNOW are wayyy better than PS Move. So yeah, who exactly says PSVR is better and in what sense?
No offense but you sound like a straight up hater and therefore difficult to take your opinion serious. Also I don't have any of the systems so I can't really expand on anything other then what I self heard or have read from people.
It's getting fantastic support as games are coming and the biggest developers are noticing and will start to jump in. The immersion you get in VR (even in its infancy) is unparalleled compared to traditional gaming. Competition within developers will benefit us gamers and will give us amazing experiences time and again. VR is here to stay.
Some heavy hitters incoming.
Just bought megaton rainfall on the store. Cant wait to get home to try it.
Love my PS4 Pro & Sony's exclusives,always supported all of Sony's VG hardware from the very beginning but I just don't have any interest in PSVR or VR in general.I haven't seen one game that's in VR that I said to myself..this is just amazing I have to play this! I know people will disagree but for me the interest is just not there.
And many of us will disagree.. if you will have a chance, try lets say Until dawn: rush of blood, Resident evil 7..Superhot vr..(and no judging by the videos..but with actual headset)..it would be interesting to hear your opinion after..I heard loads of opinions from people before they tried..many of them were no good..but after they tried themselves.. not a single of people I knew said it wasnt awesome
I've tried Oculus & PSVR,I don't see the wow factor.When I'm on vac from work which is almost 5 months out of every year I like to chill on my bed or the couch & game for hours.I could never do that with VR.I love gaming on my 60 inch 4k hdr tv,why folks disagree is beyond me.We should respect the fact that when it comes gaming not all people want to game in VR.
Epic machine, I feel like I'm a kid again.
I wonder if the VR rick and morty game will ever be released on ps4
VR is screwed because devs wont/can't take the risk. Re7, dirt, rigs and driveclub all prove that AAA games of all genres are entirely possible. But all we get are crappy shovelware nonsense games that no one buys so the devs never bother again. PSVR is as dead as the vita. The tech is awesome but the games are utter garbage.
