I'm not a gamer anymore, just F1 and FSX. But keen to give a couple of games a crack when I get time

 

Watched a PS4 demo video of Worlds, it looks great. Is it great? Or is the image quality low, and jerky? Or is it very good and pretty smooth?

 

Seems like a game changer to me (pun not intended)

 

I gather OR is better, but is PS4 VR pretty darn good too? Unsure if anyone has used one in real life via a exhibition/demo

the review of Batman VR game on PS4 really put me off.  They said it was basically you standing and looking at stuff.  to move you would pick a location and then teleport there.

 

Ill buy a PS4 VR when it comes in a bundle with a pro and a decent price, but until then, ill wait for the rift2 or something.

I bought PSVR.  It's absolutely fantastic.  The headset is very comfortable and screen door effect is almost completely gone.

 

While the resolution is less than the Rift and Vive it still looks fantastic, especially AAA games like Batman which looks GORGEOUS.

 

They have been reports of tracking issues bit I haven't noticed any.  I have used my PSVR in two environments, at home in the living room and at work in a flourescent lit office. It tracked perfectly in both environments. For reference I've used the Vive several times and while I admit the Vive has superior tracking I haven't had issues with PSVR.

 

If you have a PS4 then PSVR is a must buy in my opinion.  Much cheaper than a Vive or Rift with a gaming rig.

Oh and London Heist from VR Worlds is brilliant.  Possibly my favourite experience so far. However it is short and takes about 30 - 45 mins to play through.

I can't wait for the Pro and PSVR to be released, it will be in my living room the next minute.

Yeah I'll likely grab the Pro to go with PSVR on the hopes the devs make use of the extra gpu performance for VR games.

There is a nausea issue. More so for teens. VR is very old, for these reasons. Brain disconnects from what eyes see, so assume your are sick, creates nausea to expel the issue.

 

The Pro is "only" more powerful? No other compelling reasons?

Yeah that's pretty much it for the pro, more grunt.  It enables output at higher resolutions (marketed as 4k but that's unlikely) but because PSVR is 1080p they should be able to use the extra grunt for more complex imagery.

ive got a vive, its pretty fun, everyone whos tried it has been well impressed

 

for me its more of a fun thing to pull out when people are around, like a twister mat, rather than a serious piece of gaming kit. mostly due to the majority of games being either quite short or unpolished, and the space required for the hardware to be set up all the time

 

no nausea experienced yet, including my dad, who suffers vertigo and vomits the second he stands on a boat
