@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.

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

@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.
