@DeWiz I'll have to check those out. I work in this coworking space that has a bunch of VR gear so maybe they'll have one I can mess with.

I do find. It's mainly horror games that get the adverts and the recognition. But even simple things like pinball is being overlooked.
But with the bluray 3D adaptability and possibly ps3? I'm in again! ( I should note I do own a vr headset, it jut hasn't been used in a while)

On YouTube this morning, I've seen several adverts for PSVR, particularly PSVR Worlds and there is stock out there. Might be a new push from Sony.

Now I may be an idiot, but there's one thing I am not sir, and that sir, is an idiot

@Rudy_Manchego That's really promising. The library just isn't big enough to justify the price for me right now.

There does seem to have been a new push. I received a PSVR launch edition bundle for my birthday, but didn't ask for it until after e3, where several new games had been announced.

I am cautiously optimistic, though the fact that there are several kinks in the PSVR's system, namely the lack of HDR passthrough, concerns me a bit still. We should be beyond the days of cable-switching.

@Kogorn733 I'd agree - Sony aren't necessarily shouting from the rooftops but getting exclusives like Skyrim on PSVR (I think it is exclusive, or at least timed) can't have been cheap and this, to me, shows that they want to invest. The library is also starting to grow and the Aim controller is just excellent if supported.

Agree on the HDR pass through. I think they should be offering replacement boxes or discounted boxes with this fixed to be honest.

I've been playing video games since the early eighties and VR is one of my favourite things to happen in gaming.

If you have the funds, buy it and prepare to be amazed.

Everyone that has been around and played it at mine has left wanting one. Even non gamers have been blown away.

The only thing I will say is, if you can try it before, do it. It might be beneficial to make sure you don't get motion sickness. Try as many games as you can as some effect people a lot more than others.

I think it's worth buying a PSVR for sure. It's the least expensive while still high quality VR system out there. Even though it has its flaws, like lack of HDR passthrough, it's still an incredible experience, and I do not regret my purchase one bit.

The only things that irk me are (1) the use of teleportation in some PR action games; and (2) developers' failure to make longer VR games. Yes, some people are going to get motion sickness, but its best to encourage people to power through it and get used to the new technology, rather than creating a copout by using an immersion-breaking movement system.
