@Jaz007 not a lot but it's quite impressive just overlooking the tables which unfold into different environments as the story progresses. The depth is also quite good and interacting with each piece and moving it by hand with a single move controller feels more interactive.

This is more a troubleshooting question but I didn't want to begin a new thread so here goes:

I booted up the headset last night to check out a few VR vids on youtube but every video I tried had this black screen over it. And I don't mean the screen was all black; the video plays it's just there's this black control screen in front of the video that won't go away. I tried resetting the app but this did nothing.

Anyone else have this problem or know a solution? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I don't even care about watching the videos at this point, I was just looking for something to do out of boredom, but now the fact that I can't get it to work is driving me a little nuts.

I'm hopefully plannin to boot up Doom vfr tomorrow. I was wondering if anyone had played it and what their preferred controller was and why?

I've got a DS4 and move controllers, I don't have the aim one so just wondering what people recommend. I've had a quick qoogle and opinion seems to be quite split! Just to add that I will be playing it sitting down due to lack of space and also being a clutz when it comes to wires while I'm blind.

@ralphdibny DS4. I can't effectively teleport with the Move controllers and the game is near unplayable with the Aim so you're not missing out there.

@zupertramp cheers for your reply. I ended up trying both but the DS4 ended up being the better if not a completely perfect solution!

With Doom VFR the DS4 was by far the best choice for me.

The PSVR is the best VR system on the market today.

Played my VR for the first time in ages. It still blows me away how good it is. I'm currently installing Robinson: The Journey. Figured I'd play it before I get my PS5 and am unable to.

Didn't get much attention here but Beat Saber released a fairly substantial update. 12 BTS songs and an overhaul of the UI along with a few added player options.

The music pack is quite a lot of fun even if, like me, you're not in any way into Kpop, but the new interface definitely took some getting used to. Also I seemed to be getting some latency issues for the first time which is weird because I use the headphones but idk, maybe it's just me.

One of the added features is a note jumpoff setting which I'm pretty sure let's you adjust their spawn distance but honestly with all the time I spent trying out the new songs I really haven't had a chance to try it out.

@WaveWitch I think I'd add to your list of improvements the ability to focus it slightly further away from the face. Just because I wear glasses and I've made a couple of tiny scratches on the VR lenses where I have to get it so close to my face to be in focus!

Also I'd probably add analog sticks if they made new move controllers

This might be ridiculous but maybe a haptic feedback torso brace or adjustable vest might be helpful for those of us who suffer VR sickness, if they could simulate the feeling of movement then it might help compensate for the sight of movement

@WaveWitch cheers for the suggestion but I don't like sticking fingers in my eyes haha (I have tried contacts before with little success). Also laser eye surgery is a bit out of my price range and I quite like wearing glasses anyway like my hero A.D Walter Skinner from the X files ๐Ÿ˜‚

@WaveWitch thanks, that's certainly something to look into! The glasses thing wasn't a major gripe so I'm not too fussed but maybe when money is less tight then I'll look into those lenses. Also I can't let anyone else use my headset, I'm way to much of a germaphobe

I absolutely understand. Unfortunately a fair few of my immediate family loves Beat Saber and I'm not buying multiple headsets lol. Not even sure how that'd work. But yeah the headset gets so nasty. I clean it the moment anyone takes it off but still, sharing is not ideal.

In fact, the moment we realized we were going to be trading off with those earbuds that come with it (uh, eww), I bought the set of over the ear PS headphones that go with the headset.

@zupertramp ah nice, yeah I think the ear buds would be the worse thing. To be honest I even wear a bandana myself when I use it because I don't want to get gammy hair grease all over it

@WaveWitch I'm not a huge fan of microfibre cloths to be honest. They're always marketed as being good for electronics but I find them unusually abrasive. For anything small and glass/plastic, I would use a glasses cleaner wipe which is basically just paper soaked in cleaning alcohol. I'm not sure what's in your glasses cleaner but 90% alcohol works best. If there is residue from a previous product then two wipes might be needed, one to clear the gunk and one to remove the remaining smudges.

I'd also use isopropyl alcohol to clean circuit boards too but from a bottle. I'd wet an earbud to clean between the components on the board and a piece of kitchen roll soaked in alcohol to clean any contacts (normally I'd want some abrasion to clean contacts to remove gunk so they can make better contact.

For gunked optical discs, I'd use windolene and either a soft cloth for minor dirt or a slightly abrasive j-cloth for major disc melt which resurfaces the disc but not as harshly as some other methods
