I feel like ps4 isnt really ready for higher profile titles in VR. Next gen might change that as software isnt held back by base ps4 standards.

My VR collects dust as I tend to find neck soreness over time. Iron Man looks like 15 minutes of cool I will definitely check out.

No. Maybe next gen.
I still think VR is cool but the Ps4 seems too technically limited to get it to a level of visuals and resolution where I feel it's worth the investment. Hopefully next PSVR is on the level of current PC VR

Also at this point in the gen and with new consoles probably coming soon I think it's just too expensive for a device that a year from now might stop getting support

No Gravity rush Vr= not buy

I've been saying this too! Even if it's just a patch for GR1 remaster (since that one already runs at 60fps and wouldn't probably need to sacrifice detail/resolution). Let's pester Yoshida's twitter!

I'm pretty sure this would make everyone who played it vomit.
I went through hours of Ace Combat and Eve Valkyrie without a hitch. bring it on! And even if I couldn't handle it just walking around in those beautiful cities would be enough for me. That world is magical.

Those games have you inside a vehicle, which gives your brain a frame of reference for the motion, preventing motion sickness. Not being surrounded by a frame would be very challenging, even for VR vets, when you are standing upside down on a building, then falling sideways.

I should have said I also played through Megaton Rainfall. No cockpit there.

I wont say I'm totally bulletproof, I've gotten slight motion sickness even with cockpit games like Drive Club, but I've learned to pace myself and stop as soon as I feel the symptoms. After a while I got used to it. Same way I got used to Half-life 2 on my computer ages ago. The 60fps smoothness was too much for my poor Goldeneye 64-trained eyes... Man that game hit me hard, I was in bed for about an hour feeling like shit, LOL.

I want VR, but not a low end model. So PSVR is not an option. I'm thinking Rift-S is the way I'm going once it's released.

Hell, what else will I use my GPU for post Stadia? AM I RIGHT?! :messenger_smirking:
 
sign me up for vr 2.0 on ps5

also, even thoug hthere were a lot of vr games shown, i dont think the presentation was meant to sway people to getting VR

Not interested. VR is a gimmick that adds nothing to gaming other than worse graphics, dizziness, headaches and vomiting.

Worse graphics come with an advantage on console. Better fps almost always. Not only that, motion sickness etc is not even close to being across the board. I've demoed mine to near 300 people and maybe 12 have experienced what you're talking about, and even then it was light, and gets better the more you use it.

I'm going to hold off...no point in buying it now when i will get it for the 5 next year. I've got an Oculus anyway but this presentation looked good. that horror type game looks crazy!!

I am not you nor am I 300 minus 12 people. And worse graphics are worse graphics.

no it didint convinced me. im still waiting for good VR to try, but PSVR games wouldnt be interesting to me i think. i saw couple cool games on PC VR side but still we need more. so maybe with PS5 VR i will jump to that train if that VR stuff will be inside console allready and VR will be wireless.

Never tried VR and I'm not that interested, but if a PSVR headset arrived on my doorstep...I still wouldn't be interested.

I like to be traditional. I just enjoy the games with a controller and that's how I'll always play.

VR is great and anyone who thinks they understand it and have not tried it are lying to themselves.

It's a amazing complementary gaming experience, and as long as they keep pushing it and giving us larger games (we've had enough of your "experiences" aka tech demos) then its going to be a glorious future.

Really? I've tried it many times, it's just not that great still. I never for a moment was that immersed in any VR experience I've tried. The technology just isn't there yet. It just feels like a gimmick still because that sense of immersion isn't present.

Frankly it's different for everyone. It's theorized this is in grand part due to the low FOV. Some people are floored while some are underwhelmed.

I think I'm straight in the middle, I'm not as easily impressed/tricked as others but I still play it often because the games are fun.

I see people getting freaked out when falling from a skyscraper while I just don't feel anything. But physically taking cover behind walls and being able to peek around? That's my jam.

I wasn’t interested when VR was touted as “the next big thing” 25 years ago. I’m not interested now. I won’t ever be interested.

Give me a controller and a TV. That’s it. No visors, no helmets, no waggling, no hands in front of my face, no 3D or 4D.

Never heard anything remotely similar to this in my two years of demoing my VR.
 
VR isn’t perfect, and it’s played by imperfect humans. We love the idea of VR, and it’s getting closer and closer to being legitimate, a simple hype conference doesn’t hurt VR. To answer the OP, yes. I do think this hyped the casual fans, the fans who bought the Wii for Wii sports.

Not interested in it. I definitely get why it's cool and such but I'd rather use that money to buy more games.
 
No, it just made me think "why does Sony spend so much money and resources on this shit?" Lamest 30 minute direct I´ve ever seen, complete waste of time. They showed nothing of interest. That´s quite a feat.
They spend so much time and resources because it's future investment. Shouldn't be hard to understand.

I will only buy VR when it is untethered, low latency, and 4K 60 per eye, and minimum 200 fov. So basically, I'll be waiting awhile.
It's already low latency, and you'd likely want 4k 90 per eye rather than 60. On consoles, it's hard to say how long, but on PCs all of this is going to be common in 3 years, minus the 200 degree FoV, but it will still be a lot bigger at least.

I've had VR headset since the DK2 in 2014which was ~100°, 1080p and had external tracking.

2019, the PSVR still has 100°, an external tracker and is barely above in resolution...

PC headsets are not that better save for the Pimax. VR has been stalling so much, it might as well be going nowhere and in 1/2 years if the chinese market starts to have the same VR fatigue as the western market...VR is dead for this cycle until in comes back in another decade.
Not one manufacturer has dropped from the race. It's still going just fine.

That is down to the quality of the games. No one will have trouble getting immersed in something like Hellblade.

Never say ever. Many people have said this, and a lot of the time that statement falls flat on it's face. You don't always know what you want until you experience things first-hand. That's how life is in general.

You have never used high-end VR before paired with quality games before, and please don't try to convince anyone otherwise. You also have no forward thinking skills at all.

I had a PSVR but I sold it because it was rubbish imo. Too blurry.

Such a huge step back from 4k HDR gaming. I would like to try a proper VR headset though on PC.
