it's hard to describe the experience inside the headset but the brain really is easy to fool. i want more content!
This probably sums up the concerns I had going into the fairly large psvr purchase. It really looks lame as heck when you're watching someone else play and its easy to see something like that and think 'it's probably just a gimmick'. But putting on the headset and actually playing is a different experience entirely.

I pretty much had the same reaction hobb describes when I first put it on and saw the demo menu, its a weird feeling looking around in a virtual space and not a sensation you can easily put into words.

My second concern is content which is still a worry but after playing some of the more fun VR games (Rigs, Battlezone) and seeing how well the psvr has been sold and received I think we could see some decent dev adoption.

I dont regret getting day 1 stock (not that I thought I would be getting day 1 stock at any rate) but I would have liked some more games, not that i can afford them anyway after the cost of the headset ;p

I was actually fine for rigs but battlezone made me feel a bit iffy. I've heard the best course of action is to stop playing rather than pushing yourself and you will eventually build up an immunity.

Have looked into this alot. Once you get everything set up you get something that comes close to the vive for something like half the price.

Hardware requirements:

PSVR headset + breakout box
2 PSMove controllers
2 PS3 Camera's (picked 2 of these up for $4 each from eb)
Bluetooth USB adaptor
Dedicated GPU with HDMI output

Trinus forces steamVR to see the PSVR as a vive so you then get access to the entire steamVR library.

Waiting on a bluetooth adaptor from Ebay before I can get motion controls set up but stuff like Google Earth VR works and works amazingly well.

Re: [Hardware] Playstation VR

Got a Rift maybe two years back... did worry that the novelty would wear off after a while, but I'm still using it a few nights a week. It did have a hiatus for a while when all gaming was taking up by Midair.. but it's really cool to jump in and play a few rounds of Beat Saber or a quick hit of table tennis...

Looking forward to the graphical quality improving when processors can handle it.
