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".

Wait, so am I missing something here?  The new PSVR bundle that includes the camera isn't the newer version of the headset that Sony announced a couple of weeks ago?  

 

Did I read about a new PSVR bundle (that includes the camera) and a redesigned PSVR headset and then just combine the two in my head when I shouldn't have?

Are you referring to the bundle on Amazon? Obviously it's the old headset, it's available first on July 31, 2017, and the new headset hasn't been released in US yet.

Yes, I am talking about this bundle on Amazon- https://www.amazon.c...sp_detail?psc=1

 

Like I said, I clearly combined Sony's announcement of a redesigned PSVR with Sony's announcement of a new bundle containing the original headset and the camera.  My mistake!

the first generation headset has stopped for the newer version, like the original x1 stopped when they made the x1s the new standard basic, bundle wise i havent hear them change the controllers or camera, untill they make it mandatory for more games to have aim support, it might be better to wait and see what the 3rd party vr headsets releasing soon will be compatible with, doubt sony will allowing anything but x should get it in the future probably when they work out a deal with steam to work with the x

I'm sure Sony won't allow 3rd party headset, same as how they control controllers by licensing and device authentication. They really don't care about how much people have invested in expensive PS3 controllers like wheels and fighting sticks and simply make them all not workable on PS4, with some hack.

 

X could have done that earlier and captured the market. It's seriously their mistake of not taking advantage of their ahead of time Kinect and the readily available VR hardware for PC, I don't think it would take that much time and effort for them to work with other Windows' VR manufacturers to make a VR headset on X even before PS4. Time to market is very important these days, not many people will invest in 2 gaming platforms (and very similar platform, Nintendo has different audience), so if X is already losing on the VR ground, that will likely continue.

Has anyone played Arizona Sunshine recently? Heard rumors that the game was patched to fix the poor aiming but not sure. I'd like to get it while it's on sale if it's been fixed.

The Bond-themed escape room game I Expect You To Die is getting a new level via update on 10/24. Seems like a sale would be likely to happen around then if they wanted to capitalize on the new content.

This update is out now, for those that have the game.

 

Also, FuturLab announced a new PSVR game:

Me and this game seem to be cursed. Twice I tried to order it on sale at Targets and both got cancelled/lost somehow, and Best Buy randomly cancelled the day after I ordered it.

So my first impression of Fishing Master is that it feels like playing a Wii game with a VR headset on. Motion mostly feels like it register up, down, left and right only, with anything more specific being meaningless. It is an OK fishing game, but it doesn't do much with VR.
Also, really interested in Stunt Kite Master out today. Couldn't find much on it, but seems well reviewed (from what little there is) on the Occulus. As someone who is unlikely to spend the money on a real stunt kite getting this sounds like it could be a reasonable substitute.

I watched a few first impression videos on Youtube:

General consensus is that it's good for what it is but it's very limited (you can only race against one AI opponent, and the AI sucks).

 

Gonna wait for a deep discount.  I hope the price falls as fast as GT6...although I highly doubt it.

Moss is. I've been surprised and impressed at the number of PSVR games getting physical releases. I'd wager quite a few these will likely get a physical release but won't get announced until the release date is revealed.

Sorry if this has been asked a lot, just got the barebones VR headset. Are the move controllers a good investment? Aside from the games that require them (not sure which ones yet), I’ve been managing pretty well without them, but it seems like Until Dawn Rush of Blood might benefit with better aiming using them.

Though $85 - $99 for two seems a little steep for just that...

I wasn’t super stoked on PSVR (played the demo disk and a but of psvr worlds) until I tried Until Dawn Rush of Blood, and it’s amazing. I plan to also buy the Batman game.

Batman is a good rental, but I guess it could be OK for people to try out as a demo of the technology when they come to your house.  

 

The Move controllers add a ton to Rush of Blood and London Heist (very glad I kept mine from the PS Move stuff.)

In store only on Black Friday, but if you have a Shopko near you, they have a doorbuster deal for the PSVR for $199.99.

It might be indicative that other stores may have a similar sale.
