Just got mine today. Can I use my surround sound system instead of the headphones? There’s already too many wires as it is lol.

You will loose the 3D sound, but for most games it doesn't matter to me... I just use my surround sound. However, for some experiences (like RE7) I used my headphones for maximum immersion.

You have to get your VR legs. Best way is really to do short bursts at first, especially of the ones that make you nauseous. Don't try and push though the feeling. As soon as you feel it coming on, stop. You'll eventually be able to go longer and longer.

I never did get used to RIGS though...

Lol, haven't gone back to Rigs since getting rid of it and downloading as part of the plus lineup. It's the only game of the 30-40 games I've played that I can only handle for about 10-20 minutes.

So do you have to use the included earbuds or otherwise special earphones to get the 3D effects? I use these things because I prefer over-the-ear instead of in-the-ear, and I can't say I've ever really noticed any sort of 3D audio.

Audio is processed on the system so any headset works. Technically I think it occurs in the breakout box so any headphones wired into the PSVR headset work. Otherwise I think you can use any wireless headset that has compatible 3D audio with PS4 and that works as well.

Bought Gun jack and Mortal Blitz.  

Gunjack is fun for what it is.  Solid $5 buy.  

Surprisingly, Mortal Blitz is just as much fun to watch as it is to play.  It is one of the few games that you can duck and cover... and that is hilarious to watch others acting out.  :-)  $10 is a fair price for this.  :-)

I don't think wireless headphones work with PSVR's positional audio.

Next time you use PSVR try plugging the headphones into the dualshock controller vs the headset and you should notice a difference.

Best use of 3D audio i've seen is in London Heist, in the very beginning you're handed a phone you can put up to your ear to hear the other caller.

The headphone jack is stereo, you don't get more than 2 channels, so any headphone will do. The only thing they do is virtual 3D sound processing output to 2 channels, it's not by the hardware, not by the headphone.

Is Farpoint bundle the only way to get the Aim Controller? And the best deal is BestBuy with GCU?

I see the game itself is on clearance at target, wondering if I should buy a standard alone Aim Controller instead.

Does anyone know if the Resident Evil 7 Gold Edition will contain the VR mode? It doesn't indicate it on the cover and any of the descriptions I have seen does not mention it.

It will, it's the same game plus DLC. Some aspects of DLC do not support VR but they have been called out many times and are also mentioned in the PS Store descriptions. It's a great deal for anyone who doesn't own RE7.

Ok, thanks. Was tempted to pick up RE7 at Best Buy this week while it's on sale, but now I think I will hold off and get this.

I believe Gamestop sells it new standalone. Last time i was there they had a box for just the controller behind the counter. Buying them seperatley will still be more expensive than the bundle even with the game on clearance.

The best deal so far was when Target had their 30% off any game when you get a pre-order card, it worked on the bundle.

With Visceral Game's closure, i started thinking about how great a PSVR Dead Space would be with the Aim controller

Too bad there wasn't any nearby store had it in stock at that time.

That seems to be the consensus. I got lucky because brickseek and their website said it didn't have any, happened to go in for other stuff and they had 1

I only played the first 3 missions but it was a lot of fun... very fast paced. The graphics are solid, but a little wonky at times. I feel like it is a great buy at the $16 retail price, even better if you get it on sale.

I have it. It's decent but a bit odd. Main issue is that it has a lot of lighting, physics, and objects that are rendered essentially in 2D in the far distance which makes the environment feel much flatter than many VR games. It's a bit like playing a game that supports a 360 degree view. It's simple but quite fun and zooming around the world in the solar system is cool with the caveat that the limited depth kills some of the immersion over time.

dont know if it was mentioned, but with sony looking to move the old models, amazon you use 100vrsave at checkout on the bundle and target has 25%off when you use the cartwheel

Mortal Blitz - 

I watched my son play it for a bit, and enjoyed watching him duck and cover.  Then I tried the first 2 levels by myself last night.

Good - 
Immersion is REAL!!  Opening scene, I walked up and looked out of the ship.  My body reacted to the fear of falling.  Pretty cool.  I loved being able to move around to get into cover.  

Bad - The gun aim is wonky.  Good thing that you have target lasers... otherwise I would hit zilch.  
Story is huh what???  
And the immersion almost sent me crashing into my TV.  I lose the sense of where I am when I am playing it.  haha

But it is worth the $10 for just the immersion.  Lots and lots of fun.  Probably the best part of it is that I physically am moving!  Love that feel.  

Batman had one time where I felt that.  When I had to turn in the hallway.  This is loads and loads of it.  Awesome!

It was posted in the Target Cartwheel thread, the Target deal (expires 10/21) is much better (and $45 camera on Target Web), it makes $256 before tax (after 5% red card or discover cashback) for headset and camera bundle.

I was REALLY hoping that code for $100 off would work on the old/discontinued/original headset-only PSVR sold on Amazon, but no such luck!

These $299 deals for the old/discontinued/headset-only PSVRs are tempting, though.  I've been telling myself that I will just wait until Black Friday and hope for a great PSVR deal, but now I'm worried that all of the old/discontinued/headset-only PSVRs will be sold out by then and that if there are any Black Friday PSVR deals, they'll be a smaller percentage off of the $399 newer version bundle that includes the camera (which I already own).

 

What do you think, CAGs?

Not sure how they made it "discontinued", don't think they're so updated because of the new one in Japan.

The bundle they ship is not the bundled box from buyer's review, but separate retail headset + retail camera, so it's not really that "discontinued".

The $250 will probably the ongoing sale price for the old headset, BH has it for that price for a few days before it's sold out. Target store has it for $225 after cartwheel now, which I don't think BF can go much lower than that as officially it's still retail for $350. Very likely the BF deal they would say $100 off (from $350) to make it sounds attractive. Just my guess anyway.
