I really enjoy any time spent on mine and think it's more than worth the money. Please for the love of god though tell me you're not suddenly considering buying one just for a stupid little Trico related toy? Plus, depending on the spec of your PC, it could be argued you'd be much better off with a Rift given it costs about the same now.

You can’t tell me what I’m thinking.

...

Anyhoo, I’d need a new graphics card for the PC and a) I’ve no idea how much they cost and b) me? Fiddling with the insides of a computer? I’d be fucking dead mate. I’d get liquid coolant in my mouth somehow. And my PC hasn’t even got liquid coolant.

Possibly stupid question - if I buy a PSVR here in Singapore (have I mentioned I'm now in Singapore?) will it work with a UK ps4? I've just about worked out how game and DLC region interaction works but I'm wondering about hardware before I drop several ton.

I thought your PC had relatively recent insides, but I'm possibly just getting confused. Fitting a gfx card is a piece of piss so I wouldn't think of that as being a barrier but yeah, if you'd need to upgrade to bring your PC up to spec then it's probably not worth it as a new card would represent most of the cost of a PSVR kit. So yeah, you should totally buy a PSVR kit.

I absolutely love my PSVR, despite content being a bit thin this year. You definitely felt like an early adopter at times. Content seems to be picking up, so that's good. It's still scruffy -- like, thanks to Sony's throw-stuff-at-wall-and-see-what-sticks ideas, there are three different controllers you could be using, and games are still working out the right paradigms. But the good stuff (eg. SuperHot, I Expect You To Die, Batman, Job Simulator, Rush Of Blood, RE7) is enthralling.

I've not had mine long enough to be anything other than very enamoured with it but one thing to mention is it's a much more social VR than I have experienced previously, which I like a lot.

With the Gear VR you're locked in to your own little world and if you've got anyone around you they don't have much idea what's going on. Having the TV display to other people what is currently happening inside the space hat makes for a much better shared experience where her and myself have alternated goes on things and I can shout out words of advice and she can goose me when I am not expecting it because she's a sick fuck.

Anyone with any VR system who hasn't played I Expect You To Die is doing it wrong.

The Psychonauts VR game is also very good, and a PSVR exclusive as far as I know.

Considering I'm not sure if I can pay my mortgage next month, possibly not. ;)

Job Simulator is fun, but not a game as such. Pretty funny in places. SuperHot and IEYTD are essentials though. Get that shit fixed.

You should get one, be wonderful for Christmas. It's something the whole family can enjoy together (as long as they're at least 12 and they like video games).

I played Farpoint with the Aim Controller at the weekend. That shotgun is worth the price alone, as was the high pitched scream I let out when a spider thingy jumped straight onto my face.

It was odd as at first I just stayed still in the firefights having not previously had the ability to move around but once I did casually taking out a jumping spider with the shotgun one handed is never, ever going to get old.

Most of it could easily be replaced with virtual versions.

What were you doing with the other hand?

This is just as good as I'd hoped. I mean it's a very pared down flight sim but all the basics are present and correct and VR makes it feel amazing. But I'm now just wondering how long I'll need to wait before someone makes a WWII or WWI combat flight sim for the PSVR and then that's all of the games that I'll ever need.

Played a few hours on this last night until I unlocked the ROCKET GLIDER! and did some stunts.



The challenges get steadily harder and there's fairly decent variety there too. Would definitely recommend to anyone who has PSVR as it's a lot of fun and it shows the thing off really well.

Grabbed that but not even played it yet. Eve Valkyrie is cheap on there too atm so I'll be getting that as well, as I really enjoyed the very brief demo.

I got Skyrim VR for Christmas and it's ace, the graphics take a hit from what I remember but it just doesn't matter. Last night after my wife went up to bed and after a few whiskeys I was playing it and nodded off when some character was wittering away about something or other. I think I was only asleep for a minute or two but it was all pretty confusing for a moment or two when I woke up. :DD

Played Until Dawn: Rush of Blood.

It might just be because it was the first thing I’ve played where you shoot at stuff in VR but ... EXCELLENT! Man alive, I can’t wait to play it tonight in the dark.
