The PSVR may be the best overall VR device on the market, but can Sony afford to continue pushing the technology?
no should NOT...or at least to have a very minimal (secondary) role to the overall design of the console ...VR is Not fun, no matter the game
Sound like someone not fit enough for vr sickness maybe, sadly boy vr is getting built with ps5 using with an incredible 1,001ppi display
Vr is the way forward for sure I can’t wait until we are in worlds like ready player one
Maybe he... just doesn't like VR... Not everyone likes gaming with a helmet on their head... But, that doesn't mean Sony shouldn't support it for the fans who like it and want to see innovation occur within the VR space... No need to attack him...
@agnistic I don’t see anyone attacking him. Just disagreeing with his opinion.
I was not a VR believer until I actually got a psvr, used it and played a few games on it. I also let everyone in my family try it out and they all loved it! It is a truly awesome experience so yes! Ps5 definitely needs a built in VR system to push it to its limits!
You can always tell the ones who have actually tried it...
oh well..too bad for you, your loss...PSVR is awesome and amazing, so I am 100 percent in for the one on PS5
It should be there for those who enjoy it..
@naruga That comes across as if you're stating a fact, when in fact you're stating an opinion. One that is differing to say myself and others. And whilst your opinion may very well reflect your experience. It doesn't not reflect mine or others, and you have no right to speak on my behalf, so could you please refrain from doing so. Cheers ;)
its a gaming site..and also has a comment section ...i can comment and express whichever fing opinion i fing want as long as it is gaming related and follows the site s rules ....i dont reprensent you ...you can fing comment also you know ...so please dont ever say to me what to do ....cheers:)
@naruga Such a bitter person. Get some help man, it ain't that serious. And your suggestion that it shouldn't have VR or have VR be very minimal is stupid as hell. Sony can manage both, they already are with the PS4/PSVR. But nah, they should move backwards because some dude with serious anger issues doesn't like it.
What's funny is you don't even make a valid argument. You act like it's going to do something to alter the console. No one is saying pack the thing in the box with the PS5. VR may not be fun to you, but every gamer has genres they like and don't like. If you don't want a peripheral, don't buy it.
@naruga I never said you couldn't express an opinion. What I said is you should refraine from trying to express your opinions as fact. Hope this helps.
No it should not? What difference would it make to you in the first place? If you don't want VR then don't get VR.
'VR is Not fun, no matter the game' Dumbest comment of the year.
It should support it. Sony shouldn't design it's console around VR though. No reason to raise the cost of the console for everyone for what is just a small part of the overall market. I think the PS5 should support the current PSVR so iit can also play the newer VR games made for PS5. I don't think there will be much change to implementation, probably just better hardware.
Don’t worry naruga you’ll change you mind once the other two giants say they’re going to have VR on their next system after Sony make it console mainstream like the eye toy.
I played Skyrim in VR, RE7 and several other games. Even with the lower resolution, they are truly immersive games. You are, as they say, "trippin".
You must be one of the people who are salty because the kinect failed hard not once but twice.
BS, the PS4 didn't have any specific design traits made for VR why would the PS5 be any different? They might include a chip or 2 to handle the stuff that little box with PSVR handles now *if* they can do it cheaply enough as to not impact the price of the console otherwise PSVR2 will have another extra box to connect. And VR is massively fun, and of course that depends on the game. You just sound like a silly person who doesn't like change or never tried it or did try it, somehow didn't like it and feels everyone else in the world should agree with them. Well, you not liking it doesn't mean you're right!
no, it should not support it, vr should be the main focus for ps5.
your comment seems a tad contradictory. First you say "no, it should not support it" then you say "vr should be the main focus for ps5".... so which is it?
support is something secondary, main focus is primary.
"Well it's a little bit of both but most of all you..... got to relax!" - Mr. Meeseeks
@spam VR can't be the main focus due to many factors, cost of price for one, the last thing Sony want is a £700 pound console with a bit of kit people don't want. The X1 was only what £50 more than PS4, but that £50 was for the forced kinect, and look how that worked out. Then you look at other factors like not all gamers want of can use VR, and asking gamers to fork out £700 simply because there is a £350 headset included that they don't even want, is financial suicide. Manufacturing costs, game development costs etc. The PSVR should carry on as it is now, a very cool addotion that gamers can choose too invest or not.
solution: bundle the current vr headset with the ps5 for 50-100$ more than the basic console an sell the new and improved psvr2 headset extra.
@spambot Were you under a rock when X1 launched? You do remember that it used to come bundled with Kinect? People didn't want it. That's after the original sold bucket loads. The PSVR isn't a mainstream product. And trying to force it (especially with price) would back fire. Two things sell a console. Price and games. Making VR compulsory will rule out the first. And for proof look at PS4, Switch and X1X. Which two have been selling well? The two which have the lower price, and exclusive games. And I'll give you a hint its not the one that ends with a X.
I think its too early to try and make it a primary for a console. The cost is still going to be too high because of the display tech, as well as the added materials needed to make the HMD. They'd want a powerful console to manage next gen graphics on VR, and that'd be prohibitive. I think keeping it as a peripheral is the way to go. If they keep doing it into the next gen, and hopefully make the current PSVR compatible with PS5, as well as forward compatible with the games, then it'll show they have confidence to support it for the long haul, and maybe we'll see a bigger push into the games.
It should take on a go-between role like it is currently.
For what it's worth I don't think Sony is going to give up it's lead after investing so much in it. VR might take off if the display is crisper, wireless, and the console has more power. My guess is that the PS5 will indeed support a new VR headset, and it will be backwards compatible with all the existing PSVR titles.
Ohh, a wireless PSVR headset would be awesome, but I doubt it will happen... too much energy goes into powering it.
Not really. The technology exists and has been around for a few years. The added power needed is not that much and will only get better.
They already said that wireless is the next big step in a video about how psvr came to be. I think its closer than people think
I think the display is crisp enough. There is some light hatching on PSVR, but you don't really notice it when the game is in motion. I think my biggest thing with the graphics is the almost ethereal feel of everything. Like everything is floating. Again, it's not a problem much when in motion, but if you're gawking at the immersion of it all, it stands out for me. better display technology will help that, and hopefully by the next VR device, they'll be cheap enough to add in, and certainly a more powerful console can make it more feasible on the graphics front.
I'm sure this will happen as well. Sony isn't just going to give up on VR. Plus, with a newer more powerful system it can only get better. I've not tried it myself, but I don't see it going away either.
Of course, VR will is amazing and will be even more with a better hardware like PS5
yes. it shoukd integrate better, no more breakout box, etc.
Judging by the success of the current VR headset on PS4 I would say a PS5 VR HMD is inevitable
Yes, and honestly there's aboslutely no reason you shouldn't be able to still use the current PSVR unit seeing as how all it needs is a USB port and an HDMI connection. I think it's be amazing if they allow that as well as release a new PS5 version unit with better specs/resolution. it would both move a lot of the original units, as well as build a user base for VR in general, a lot of which will be incentivized to upgrade down the road given how good the new unit can be.
Absolutely it should. Its to Sony's advantage. The Playstation is Sony's only product in the house with its own custom operating system. There only three other companies that has their own operating system in such a prominent place in the house. This is huge. Sony has to take full advantage of it, well I hope they will. There is so much more that a Playstation can do beside playing games. Even VR, not only for games, educational stuff, world tours, technical stuff, so much to do. Microsoft has Windows to do the other stuff. Sony only has the Playstation, I hope they realise to take full advantage of the operating system.
Yes without a doubt.
No invest it in other technologies other than 3dtv and vr fads that come.and go
With additional support from PS5,, PSVR would be out of this world. GT races in VR =WoW. Alien in VR =😱😱 Resident Evil 8 = FEEL the FEAR
100%, hopefully next gen we will have PS4 style graphics for VR
Yes, absolutely they should. They currently have the best selling VR headset on the market and the games library is always expanding. If they do a version 2.0 I'll buy that, as well as a ps5
Don't be centered around VR please. But as a secondary device sure. Bring on PSVR 2
I personally don't believe Sony should invest in VR right now. They tried it hasn't really caught on(what percentage of ps4 owners have psvr? Maybe 2%)because we're just not there technology wise on the console. I'm not saying VR won't be the future because it could very well be the future, but it isn't advanced enough currently.
Sony sold 2 million units in a year. Assuming a constant sell rate, they'd be looking at about 3 million by now....if we subtract initial launch early adopters. That puts it at about 3.5-4% of the install base. More importantly than percentages though, is that 3 million people are invested in the product. 3 million people who want more games. If they keep those on board, and keep getting new users, then they'll have a platform which compliments something that the PS brand is all about. VR will never be the future if companies just keep dropping out when it isn't a runaway success. They have to keep pushing, and I'd rather see Sony keep pushing, than drop out because some people think that 3 million people are worth putting by the wayside.
Didn't they say they were going to be building the PS5 with VR in mind? Built in at a base level even? Maybe those were just rumours.
Yes, this is a stupid question.
Sounds like a kinect issue, oh how the tables are tilting.
no, cause unlike Kinect PSVR actually works
working wasn't the issue, is it Worth it!?!? for next gen? lol..
Yes! Yes! Yes!
I say yes if it's built in and there aren't too many extra add-ons you need to get started.
I would hope so.
What issues would a more powerful system have of not supporting it? Of simply carrying over rather than improving what the PS4 does now?
The next console will be beefy enough to support VR. The real question is will there be a new headset that can take advantage of the additional power.
Current headset should be able to handle it. The HMD is just a couple displays and some input devices. No reason it couldn't adapt. Graphics would obviously be better on a newer headset, but the graphics themselves will still look better on the current PSVR. Difference in a new headset will be better displays, and possibly different or more ways for tracking movement. BC should be a must for current gen PSVR games. Forward compatibility with those who have the current PSVR using it on a PS5 would be appreciated, but shouldn't be mandated, but that's more about any new inputs and features on the new set.
yes i really enjoy the vr and i wana see more games but please make the ps5 vr with less wires xD
VR is most amazing experiences I have ever expose too in my life, but its need a lot to be a perfect experience first prevent nause is important at this point, and a loooooooot of wires that nearly impossible to hide. Its has its own potentials, but for some reasons RE7 is still No.1, don't get me wrong other games are amazing, but they ain't premium package at all. I mean look at last guardian demo that thing was so alive. We need to be inside amazing games such as AC, FF, Persona, GTA, BF, Yakuza etc. At current state we need to know if these big companies will support VR or they will just throw teasers. PS5 need VR but only if its offers what people wants not 1 hour of Batman or fishing Final Fantasy game.
It absolutely will. What a lot of people that haven't tried VR yet don't fully realize is that it opens up new amazingly fun types of gameplay. I feel like if the mainstream could easily access Beat Saber it would be a VR workout revolution it is so fun and such a good workout. And Echo Arena and Echo Combat actually feel like I'm playing a sport in my living room. It's too cool of a feeling to describe you really need to experience it. On PSVR Wipeout is f'ing incredible too.
Wipe out in vr alone is enough for the purchase
It seems like a good idea to me but they definitely don't want to force people into it. Packing it in with every PS5 would be a mistake. We all saw what happened when MS sold every XBox One with a Kinect.
I can't even describe to you how much better a thing VR is than Kinect. Kinect barely worked, VR transports you to another place.
Why not its doing well and is fun just improve on res and controls in psvr2 and it will go to another level
lame title and question. While we're at it, should PS5 support bluetooth? :|
Yes vr is fantastic
vr is just the next natural step in tv.firt there was black and white tvs then color tv then high quality screens like led 4k then 3d then what about going into the tv .it seems so natural and i dont see any other step for tv
