The only benefit I can see is that it proves to people that you can make a difference and it's important to get out and vote. A dark day anyway, I'm off to throw myself in traffic.

@adf86: Its not the place to discuss politics really but it has split the country too. The vote was close and it looks as though the UK could well be split up with Northern Ireland and Scotland seeking to leave to rejoin the EU. 92% also opted to remain in the EU in Gibraltar and they could opt to to rejoin Spain. If that happens, Britain is hardly that big and could be an easier target for terrorists - no EU protection.

The vote could be seen as a vote of no-confidence in the political party as much as the ramifications of leaving EU. Like I said personally I would prefer that it shakes up the EU in terms of immigration and asylum seekers rather than actually end up leaving the EU because on a lot of other issues, EU has been beneficial to us. Would you have felt the same way had the vote been so close the other way or accepted that only 26% of the overall population has decided your future? About 1/3rd of the eligible voters had decided the fate of the nation? If just over half a million of those voters had voted the other way, the decision would have been the other way - that shows how close it was effectively and those have wiped millions off the stock market, sunk the value of the pound down to its lowest since 1985. Its not like we manufacture a lot here either so costs will rise - hope you weren't thinking of travelling abroad anytime soon.

If this is very much the way Britain feels as in Leave the EU now that they have sent a vote of no-confidence to both Brussels and the Political leaders of the UK, then a second Referendum would reflect that. In the cold light of day now the ramifications of this are more clear now, as well as all those who thought their 'vote' wouldn't matter actually bother voting this time, a second vote could be more clear cut either way...

@BAMozzy: Unfortunately that's just wishful thinking. Borris and Gove will not agree to another referendum. Its done. PSVR will now be £50 more expensive lol.

@BAMozzy Your right it isn't the place to discuss this but all day I've been called every name under the sun just because many like to generalise everyone together. I would have accepted the result if it went the other way because I had to accept it last year when the tories got back in, so I'm used to disappointments. But the way people have been reacting in the remain, you'd think we just voted to nuke another country or something. So much sensationalism from people who never took the working class's disillusionment with both how our leaders and the EU have governed our lives. Yes the pound may have fallen but a lot of that was down but it'll recover (it always does). What will happen now is we will negotiate terms with the EU because they still very much need our business and probably establish new trading links with Scandinavian and China etc. And no I'm not going on holiday because I don't have a passport, though my mother is off to Belgium but she voted leave anyway.

Batman: Arkham VR - PlayStation 4 is available for pre-order on Amazon.com for only $19.99. Was interested to see what Rocksteady does with the game at first but now I'm kinda skeptical considering how cheap it is.

@WanderingBullet: I don't know, even an Arkham VR game isn't even making me want to buy a PSVR. For some reason with Arkham VR I am getting the feeling it's going to be like Star Wars Kinect. All these people will have high expectations of "being" Batman like people did with Star Wars Kinect but in the end it won't be what people think and be disappointed.

@Tasuki: I fee exactly the same about Batman VR too. It sounds like its taken one of the most 'boring' aspects of the Arkham games - analysing a crime scene - albeit from the VR perspective. Wow - you get to put on the Batsuit and get to see the 'crime' from different perspectives to analyse it but its hardly gliding over Arkham, driving around in the Batmobile and kicking the proverbial out of bad guys all wrapped up in a big story....

@BAMozzy Just imagine the fighting elements of the game in VR. Instant motion sickness? Maaaybe...

I'm just mostly surprised no developer has announced a VRemaster yet. Remasters are selling great, so I can only imagine the succes of a Bioshock VR or Mass Effect VR.

@Kidfried: Combat could get a bit... but could still be good driving and gliding over Arkham - there is an eagle flying game that's no worse. Bioshock could work - not sure so much about Mass Effect - not just because of the 3rd person... How about a first person Dead Space??

Dead Space would be brilliant.

And Mass Effect... I was just thinking how much more fun it would be to drive the Mako in VR, or have the conversations in first person. The combat gameplay, haha, I hadn't really though about that.

@Tasuki: Yeah, I'm not interested in PSVR either but my expectation were kinda high when I first heard about it seeing that its a Rocksteady game. However, at $20, my fear is that it'll turn out to be more of a tech demo.

OUT! - PlayStation move was a failure, as was Kinect. Oh, you know what? Lets release PlayStation VR! Oh...Oh, and lets release a better PS4. Fail!

In. I have no real confidence that the thing will be a success but it has me excited and intrigued and even though it's almost madness to pay £350 (just for the VR, let alone games, camera, ps4, move controllers etc) for the experience, I have it on pre-order and it's very rare that I'll do that for a system.

I am in as stated before whether it is a big success or not I look forward to the journey it will take me on. Like the above poster I am not normally a first time adopter of tech but this has me excited. I would want this to be enough of a sucess that the tech is developed more over the years and gets better and better. I have a few VR games in mind at the moment but want a few more so i can play with my new toy come October.

I had a go on PlayStation VR yesterday at Insomina 58 at the NEC. I was hoping that I would get the opputunity to play Battlezone, but due to the way I answered the questionnaire on the online booking form I ended up with VR Worlds underwater section!. Once I put my disappointment to one side I and put the headset on, I have to say I was very impressed with level of immersion and the experience as a whole.
At this moment in time, I think I will wait for a year and see how well it does and see what games come out for it. I'm interested in Star Wars and Battlezone. I already have the camera as I bought it with my launch PS4, so that's a £50 saving.
The only thing that concerns me will be the level of support Sony will give this, are they really going to push it or will they drop it like the Vita if it underperforms?
I also asked the person on the PlayStation stand whether it was attached to Neo or a regular PS4, and his response was that they were officially not talk about Neo or Slim and that the VR unit was attached to a regular PS4.

I think they will support it until atleast the end of PS4 generation then bring out a new model when PS5 comes out. I think Vita had competition from tablets. mobiles etc so it struggled to get a foot hold in the market. PSVR's competition is smaller and costs a lot more to get it up and running on other formats. I know waiting is the right and logical thing to do but this time I am throwing caution to the wind.

Personally I think PSVR Headset will be supported well into the PS5 generation. Whether they build in the Processing Unit or not will be the interesting factor. Its basically just a 'social' box (so others can see a representation of what you see on a TV) and to process the 'surround' sound too but building it in to a console adds extra cost and I think will depend on how many headsets and VR 'games' are being played. If its a few million, Sony may decide to keep the Processing Unit out of the PS5 as its putting extra cost onto the construction and price of the retail unit for something 90% won't use. Its similar in essence to MS building in Kinect.

They could of course build 2 versions of the PS5 - one a VR console with the Processing Unit built in and supply a headset in a bundle (for new comers) and one without for those already with PSVR who already have the headset and Processing unit although I do think that's unlikely.

In a few years time (5 maybe), Sony could release PSVR2 Headset - an upgrade on PSVR. A higher resolution screen, maybe more precision tracking system etc but I doubt that PSVR will be 'obsolete' - I expect most of the games to still work but maybe not as 'well' or as 'pretty'. It will depend though on how well VR is doing in general. It hasn't yet released on Sony so still in its infancy. Its not like 'Move' or 'Kinect' either as it has more function (It can work as just a screen) and can offer more variety in gaming experiences - as well as non-gaming options too. Move was very limited by what games it suited. Kinect too as a gaming peripheral (although great for navigation etc). Difference here though is that VR should grow because PC's and other consoles will have VR options. MS, with Scorpio, will offer VR and its already confirmed games are in production for it. Developers are not 'restricted' to a specific family, they can make a game for PSVR, PC's (Vive and OR) and Xbox Scorpio too.
