COGconnected - As PSX came to a close, it became obvious that the big focus of the weekend was PlayStation VR. Sony is insisting that PSVR is here to stay.
I want a price drop furthur or a new psvr redesign. One of those two will get me on the psvr train. The price is just too steep, wish i could try it out.
They did just revise the hardware with V.2. And how much more of a price drop do you need? $350 or less with 2 move controllers, camera, and game. I jumped in 2 week ago with the Skyrim bundle, and I can't go back to flat screen gaming anymore. VR has totally ruined me, in a good way lol.
oh I am sure you will manage 2D gaming again when TLOU2 or whatever comes along. You will "suffer" all the way through it :P
@Neonridr TLOU2 is the only game that I am still interested in.
......... You can't go back to flat screen gaming?? Give me a break. I mean, I'm glad that you are enjoying your product (that is what we are here for) and to each his own, but man.
It happens software lover. I play more VR than games on PS4. Besides going back to play 2D games and Sony exclusives. VR is compelling. And after years of seeing the same gameplay updated over and over since Pong and Atari,it's refreshing to have something finally different than the same old same old.
I tried PS VR and wanted to go back to flat screen gaming, it's unappealing to me in it's current form.
They're doing home trials in the US if you're a PS+ subscriber.
what do you want the headset for $5? :| Part of the price is factored in to support the system itself, the money helps get is new stuff. That said, Im not paying $900 for a VR headset..
Dude. Got my PSVR today and it rocks! I paid £300 for bundle. If you love games and gadgets this is the bees knees. I you won't regret it seriously! I've had it for 4 hours now and haven't even started gaming on it yet lol. So far have tested YouTube VR, watched Rogue One In 3D, watched Stranger Things 2 on Netflix all on its cinema mode. It's frikkin amazing it's like sitting 3 rows in an Imax cinema. That alone has blown me away as my 4k tv feels smaller lol. Then I played witcher 3 on cinema mode full size and I crapped myself as I came across a godling! Seriously the scale and immersion is beyond words. OK pictur is like full HD I'd say. Oh and if you move out of area just press 'option' on Dualshock controller and screen readjusts to centre although I found looking down 2 degrees suits me better. For the price alone I'm getting a mobile device with Imax screen sizes and 3D bluray :) now the next 24hours I'll be on rush of blood, skyrim vr, Battlezone and until dawn (in cinema mode). And yep I can quickly see VR replacing my 2D TV screens if I'm alone chilling.
Good that you are having fun moomin. take it slow on some games unless you're not prone to motion sickness. And take breaks here and there.
Moomin, classic programme 😀
You know its only $200 right now right? https://www.playstation.com...
Some people want things for free I see
One hundred and ninety-nine dollars with the camera and a game isn't inexpensive enough? Heck, if you go through B&H you don't even have to pay shipping or TAX (if you live outside of New York). Nothing. Else. Comes. Close.
Go to Best buy and get a charge account. Problem solved.
OCARINA OF TIME VR start to finish and HALO VR could push the market even more
I hope these games offer traditional locomotion too. I don't just want to teleport all the time. I have been spoiled with PC VR gaming I guess.
I think now that most of the games coming out offer the option for full loco. After Skyrim and Resi 7 there is no reason not to.
you still see the odd game here and there that still only does teleport. I don't know if Blood & Truth offers full locomotion or not though. But it would be nice to have the option for those of us who can handle it.
No Blood and truth doesn't have full locomotion, its not quite teleportation, you have certain spots that you can walk or run to while still being able to strafe and aim. The controls actually look pretty decent. I'm more excited about Firewall, which does have full locomotion
Not to sound stupid, but what's full locomotion mean?
Living, Full Loco is moving where you want in the game freely like in most games. Teleport is when you jump from one spot to the next. It comes down to how your body handles motion. Some games now are offering both options among other things to prevent motion sickness in players.
@Living - yeah early VR games mostly offered teleport since having your brain comprehend full movement in games was sometimes too much for your body to handle and thus resulted in some wicked nausea. Now that people are more comfortable, they prefer full locomotion because it doesn't break immersion when you aren't hopping around. Shame that Blood & Truth doesn't give us the option. I understand games are designed a certain way so I can live with that. Maybe sort of like Doom how it was teleport with the dash mechanic.
Depends on game. There's loadsa reviews out there. After successes of Skyrim VR and Resident Evil 7 and Battlezone maybe future games will move down this free movement control scheme. When FPS first came out on PC eg. Doom, quake, rainbow six there wasn't a standard for nearly 5 years. Anyways hope this answer your question :)
Seems like you've stumbled upon a new level of defensive fanboys in this comment section, just look at those disagrees, VR troopers indeed
it's N4G.. no surprise I guess.
I'm surprised VR is getting so much defence, but then again I wasn't pleased with most of the current VR solutions myself.
I don't know why you're getting disagrees. I can't argue with wanting to have the option for full locomotion. Its the absolute best way to experience a VR FPS. Games like Farpoint and RE7 become fully immersive. If you get sick playing that way, then by all means use the teleport. Just at least give us the option.
it's because it might be putting some of these PSVR games in a bad light because it appears that they don't offer it. Either that or because I have developed a loyal following of people who just don't like me. At the end of the day it doesn't matter, I own both a Rift and PSVR so I am all in on the VR game. I like having options, and like you said, why all the disagrees? Not entirely sure.
That's one of my big no no's against VR, the warping/teleporting, I noticed most people seem to be okay with it, but it's immersion breaking for me.
The one game that I am not happy about being a VR-only title is The Inpatient. Reason for that is because it's canon with Until Dawn which was not a VR title, and if you're going to make a prequel to a game like this why force it to be VR-only? Much less of the original fans are going to be able to play it right now if they're waiting for later revisions of PSVR.
And MGS2 wasn't available on PS1 even though it was canon with MGS1, which was not a PS2 title.
That's different though. In this situation they could have made it so you could play either way, VR or regular, on the same console the first one released on.
They made it vr only cause the devs wanted you being the patient, and you being in the vr space. You can't do that playing the regular way.
And how it is going for m$ and nintendo vr?
Microsoft only delve into successful markets not invent or be first to create new IP or hardware. If VR makes a billion dollars in a years time expect Microsoft to jump on board! Ninty lol are ninty. They just do their own thing.
You mean like Sony invented console gaming and everyone else followed. Why didnt everyone jump in on the Sony mini Disc bandwagon?
I find it weird that Microsoft and Nintendo haven't offered up their own VR solutions at this point, the demand is obviously there and it seems like it doesn't even have to be high quality or well implemented VR to sell well. I still think it is a price sensitive piece though, considering Sony has the right balance of performance and price at with VR.
well MS has their own line of WMR headsets which are successful in their own rights. Nintendo isn't bothering until they see a point. VR is still small time right now. Sure it's growing, but hardly mainstream at this point.
Got a PSVR v2 today and in the little time I have had with it. It really is quiet an experience. Only played the free to play Playroom VR at the moment and have yet to set up PS Move. But even with just the normal DS4 controller the experience was amazing. Can't wait to play some more VR titles later tonight. Going tinker with it and see how well it works on PC tomorrow.
How did you like the Playroom platformer?
Only tried the toy grabbing mini game as the others where still downloading
welcome to the club mate. Try rush of blood for arcade style shooter fun. its free on psn atm so worth it. the last guardian is a great demo especially if you have little ones. Skyrim and res7 are top titles and if multiplay is your thing their is EVE, Far point (best with aim controller) or star trek bridge crew for that community feeling game.
Haha every single game you just listed are ones I have all ready started to download (Last Guardian and Rush of blood) and the likes of RE7 and Skyrim I have ordered and waiting to arrive as well as Farpoint with Aim controller. EVE and Star Trek as titles I hope to pick up during the January sales. I also have Rec Room and Resi7 Kitchen demo and Sports Bar VR downloading as well. Have loads of other titles I really want to try. Accounting+ is out next week and I really can't wait for it.
Pool is great in Sportsbar. And don't forget Superhot with move controllers.
@Apocalypse Shadow YES! I can't believe I forgot about Super Hot VR. Am going to be very busy this Christmas. I think it might be best if I wait until boxing day sales. I have a feeling a fair few people will be getting a PSVR for Christmas with neatly a million sold during Black Friday. Surely some VR titles will be in the sale. Also RIGS was available on PS+ for 2 months. Rush of Blood has been up for 2 months now. I have a feeling that the January PS+ update will include a new VR title.
EVE and Star Trek are great because you get to play with PC VR users as well, so there is a healthy pool of players to pull from. Rec Room is a blast.
lol, I misread your post when you said quiet (assuming you meant "quite"). I was like quiet? Get out of here, I am yelling all the time, lol.
Haha stupid auto correct on my phone.
Once again sony comming out on top showing ms and nintendo how vr is done with psvr 🤗
If MS and ninty start VR development all gamers win! More projects. More jobs. More new IPs. And it gets Sony excited to push themselves harder with fresh COMPETITION! wouldn't it be great if VR industry grew?
200 Bucks. Its a steal.
Finally made the plunge with psvr. This thing is awesome I sure as hell hope it sells and doesn't get dumped into the wasted potential bin like the vita
Next stop VR me thinks, have tried it's amazing. Was worried about support but the way things are looking Sony are stepping up:)
Well even costco sold out of psvr, looks like 300 was the sweet spot. looks like you can get it for 200 now.
Yugioh in VR would be awesome
With over 2 million sold, PSVR is definitely the leader now of the three systems that came out last year (Vive and Oculus) obviously aided by the fact that it is the only one for consoles at this point and has a huge potential with over 70 million PS4 consoles sold to date. At this time there are many games and demos to enjoy on PSVR but we need more full game AAA experiences. As a whole, however, playing Resident Evil 7 and Skyrim on PSVR has been fun, and Firewall looks good so looking forward to that and Ace Combat 7.
I love that Sony is committed to VR. It’s good for the industry whether you game on PSVR, Vive, or Rift. We all benefit. Pushing this platform forward is key going into next gen. Because even in its infancy, this medium has already blown me away and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.
Finally broke down and ordered a kit. Didn't make sense to pass up one for only one hundred and ninety-nine bucks, with the camera, and a full game (AND I didn't pay tax or shipping). Surprised supply hasn't depleted yet from B&H.
