@Rudy_Manchego Thanks for the feedback. I was still on the fence, am still on the fence I suppose, but the more I think about it, well I imagine us getting about 10 total hours use of it, so $275 is a lot for 10 hours. I'd rather go get a massage. And I do imagine other people using it, if we ever had other people over, but we never do. Well actually we do every other year, Thanksgiving and Christmas, but this year we're away for both holidays, which is why we're buying a Switch next Friday for $415 instead of waiting until Christmas, for all the long road trips. Well get 1,000 hours use out of the Switch I'm sure.

I was really close to spending the $225, but the additional $45 camera has me tilting me the other way. My kid, who has been wanting a camera since Day 1, said we don't need it now, we can wait. When a 12 year old boy says he can wait for new tech he wants, well we can wait.

@rjejr Yep makes complete sense. VR is such an odd beast - it is great and everytime I use it, I love it and marvel at how great it is but it also isn't really a gaming machine in the traditional sense. I don't mind the shorter games as I don't tend to like more than an hour or so session so I don't have the same impetus to go back to it day after day. As the games are shorter, I tend to play through, complete them over a couple of nights and then either wait till I get something new or until I get the urge. I do regularly watch movies and VR videos in it though. With games on consoles though, you kind of have that reason to go back each night and do a little bit more.

But I mean, as someone who really likes PSVR, if I had to choose, I would go Switch. I mean I plopped over a hundred hours alone into Breath of the Wild.

@Rudy_Manchego "I mean I plopped over a hundred hours alone into Breath of the Wild."

I put 155 hours into Zelda BotW on Wii U, my kids about 50 or 60 each, so that's about 250 hours we won't be putting into Switch, but XC2 I'm sure will be well over 100, Mario probably 25-30 for each of us. I usually wait for 3 "must play" games before buying a new console, but a 3D Mario and XC2 were enough to put me over the top this year. My kids playing Sonic Forces and Lego Marvel 2 in the car for about 35 hours traveling this holiday will keep them happy as well. PSVR will be $199 holiday 2018 when we have 30 people visit, it can wait another year.

@rjejr Can'r argue with that - I'm actually going to be buying a fair few Switch games. Looking forward to Mario, also never ever played Skyrim and it played pretty well in the Switch when I did the demo so picking that up. I also want to try Doom, Rime, Splatoon and several others (even though I can get some cheaper on PS4). It is just nice to be able to take it and play while at my in-laws rather than talking to them...

@Rudy_Manchego I still own Skyrim on disc on PS3, and I own two PS3, so getting it on Switch to add to my backlog would be kind of superfluous. I'll play Mario & Rabbids when it's done sometime next year, but I have a lot of PS4 stuff to catch up on, Horizon, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and I've been wanting to play Witcher 3, I don't have enough room for 50GB but for $19.99 I'm buying it now anyway. $20. Zelda BotW will still be $60 5 years from now. And the season pass will still be $20.

I have a question for those of you who have PSVR. On Sunday Best Buy will have the headset for $200.00. At that price do you think it is worth it or should I wait until the new one comes out?

@Pink_Floyd I think, if you have been wanting one for ages and have games you want to play then give it a go. There will be a new VR in the next few years I expect but then I guess that is true of all tech. However if you do have doubts, maybe leave it.

Skyrim VR- duh!!

I've just spent the last 4 hours suspended in Virtual Reality and I feel perfectly fine, using DS4 and incremental turning. I usually try to limit it to 90min play sessions, but I just wanted to keep playing.
The opening, entering the Shimmering cave, making my way up snowy Bleak Falls Barrow...it's Skyrim like never before.

Bethesda have done an incredible job. Hopefully they can get Fallout 4 to run on PSVR.

Hey everyone, just made an account, first post. I didn't see anyone mention Megaton Rainfall in this post. It's one of the coolest VR experiences. Travel the universe, fly to distant stars and even find black holes. Check out the link in my sig for a gameplay video, there's a few on my channel.
Besides that, skyrim as you all know is sick, just got vamp Lord and can't stop going on rampages.

@LordTaryn Welcome to the forums! Megaton Rainfall looks pretty mad . Definitely interested. Maybe once I clear some more of my VR backlog.

OK, so just finished up a session with Superhot VR and this, for me, is one of the best VR experiences I have had. Had a few issues with move control tracking but grabbing a shotgun mod air, ducking a bullet and firing back was just awesome. I actually worked up a slight sweat. I can see why this topped the PushSquare VR list.

I'm hoping to get a PSVR in the next few weeks but I've got a dilemma, I realistically can't afford VR as well as PS Move at the same time. So I'm wondering what are the best VR games to play with the Dualshock that I can play until I can get Move at a late date?

@adf86 I liked Battlezone and Bound if you like arty fluff. Both worked well with a DS4.

@adf86 statik without a doubt for me. Theres a demo level available which everyone must try. Best experience in vr I have ever had. I played without looking for hints, seriously you have to play it like that to get the most enjoyment so dont use a guide however stuck you get - you will find a solution. Once I looked for secrets online after finishing the game to get a different ending it kind of ruined the game as its not designed to be played like that. Its all about experimentation and is such an amazing immersive experience with the ds4 and head tracking.

Im no psvr expert but the demo disc and vr worlds will give you a good idea on what games to try first, I seem to like a bunch of games that have been cast aside for supposedly bigger games. Mainly danger ball in vr worlds and headmaster on the demo disc.

VR playroom is free and worth a blast also. Batman vr is great, especially looking in the mirror late game but I would try to pickup batman in a sale as it doesnt have the replayability of the other games Ive mentioned. You should also have rush of blood already due to psplus and I know you have it in your library, thats a win for sure - but I nearly sh!+ myself.

Try luge on vr worlds, if you feel quesy absolutely avoid driveclub and eve valkyrie. If your lucky and feel normal then Im jealous as eve valkyrie would be amazing if my head didnt implode with nausea 😵

@themcnoisy @Rudy_Manchego @get2sammyb Ok thanks for the suggestions guys. Luckily I bought Batman, Statik, Battlezone and Eve Valkyrie in a recent sale just so I had a few games ready to go. And I liked what I saw of them but also felt they could be well suited with the DS4 so it seems I chose wisely

As for Statik, I have a habit of checking guides if I'm stuck in a place for over half an hour but I'll make sure to go in as you suggested.

@adf86 the great thing about psvr right now is that if you want to read a guide on your phone, you basically have to uncouple yourself. So its just not worth it. The ui on the ps4 when in psvr is just not worth browsing the internet, it becomes dead hard to read.

Good luck on eve valkyrie. I literally cannot play that game.

Scrummer

So, I've been thinking about getting a PSVR, but I'm not sure if it's worth it. I'm still in high school, so M-rated games, as well as horror games (Just a personal preference), are out of the question, and I feel those two games make up a majority of VR games. Combine that with the fact that this would be a very big purchase, and I would only be able to get a couple games for it per year, which makes replay value a huge consideration, and something that I see not many VR games have. Would a PSVR be worth it for someone like me? (Also, I'm not prone to motion sickness, so I don't need to worry about that.)

@Scrummer If possible - see if there's someone or somewhere where you try one out and just gather all of the information you can.

I've only tried PSVR once, playing DriveClub - which was great.
I have tried Star Trek: Bridge Crew on the Vive which was great, and play it non VR on PS4. Good game.

I've considered buying PSVR -but very quickly realised that it's not a particularly practical way for me to play. I'm a little tied to my phone a lot of the time, so it would mean removing the headset a lot or just ignoring the phone for any particularly significant session. Also, I find it incredibly isolating - I don't much like wearing headsets while I game, let alone something that cuts off my surroundings so absolutely.
