No, there's a small chance it could be in Sony's BF digital sale but being only a week old and sort of a niche title I don't see it happening until next year.

I made a post in the trade forum that I'm looking to offload mine for $45 shipped or traded for some PSVR games.  If you are interested let me know.  It's still sealed and I have no intention of opening it.

Did anyone else notice base VR set was $199 at kohls with $30 kc?  Says sold out, but didn't know it was even an option. Maybe was not in stock yet.

How is Carnival Games? I got the other two (even with mediocre reviews) because they looked unique.


  1. 1 John 1:7,9

But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

It's very good as a showcase for the various things PSVR games can do.

Farpoint isn't recommended unless you managed to get the Aim controller some other way than the bundle or you want to convert the disc version to digital.

 

I just want to put in a quick recommendation for Carnival Games, Mervils, and NBA 2KVR.

 

Carnival Games is widely recognized as a good game, but some people put it down as shovelware since it was on the Wii.  It's much better in VR.

 

Mervils also gets put down a lot due to its simplistic art style and voice acting, but the gameplay is really fun and the game is a must have for anyone who likes platformers and/or Zelda-style games.

 

Also, NBA 2KVR gets shit on a lot (mostly by people who haven't even played it), but I think it's really fun and definitely worth it at that price.

Any thoughts on Robinson: The Journey and the Eagle game?

 

I'm trying to find 3 games I can pick up during GS B2G1 ... will have Skyrim, Psychonauts, VR Worlds, RE7, Tomb Raider, Battlefront 1

 

Any must have VR games?

So... I know this has come up a few times, but in practical terms, how different are the v2 headset vs v1? I don't have a 4K TV so the HDR bit isn't relevant to me. 
 

Dell has the Gran Turismo bundle (v1 + camera + game) for $300, but e.bates is doing 10% cashback and I have the Amex promo for $50 statement credit on a $300 purchase. The bundle for $220 after both cashback + CA tax on $300 = $250 net. That seems pretty solid.  

The best Skyrim VR deal for me would probably the the BHPhoto for $350 + no CA tax. $100 more for new move controllers + v2 headset instead of v1 + skyrim instead of Gran Turismo. 

Too bad Dell isn't carrying the Skyrim bundle :(

I definitely want to buy carnival games, but can't help but think there will be some bundling with the new DLC at some point.  But then again, maybe the DLC will also go on sale by itself later for cheap.

HDR passthrough and inline controls are the only difference.

I have Eagle Flight and I like it.  I also have Robinson but the game made me extremely nauseous the last time I played it so I can't say either way how good it is.  From what I played, it seemed like it could be a good game, though.

I got a V2 and can provide some detailed notes after replacing my V1.

 

-HDR pass though is still the biggest difference

-volume, mic, and power are now on the bottom of the headset. This is the only thing I actually like less than the V1 design.

-the headphone jack is accessible and included earbuds work well enough. There's a mic in the headset.

-the other biggest thing imo is that there's a single cable coming from the heads set to the breakout box. It reduces a noticeable amount of -weight from the headset at first but either way you acclimate shortly.

-headset dimensions are slightly different.

-breakout box is slightly smaller and is a single box with no slider to cover over inserted cables.

 

 

Also, to the poster asking about Robinson. It's a now outdated game with a modest story, mediocre controls, and serviceable environments. It's a walking/climbing game with limited puzzles. The highlight is easily the giant dinosaurs, some which are just great experiences. It's not enough to pull it up from the bottom of a sizable list of better games at this point though.

I know you're trying to present this as a positive for the newer headset, but the sliding cover was mindblowing when I figured out how it worked and was the coolest part of the whole set-up process.

V1 also has a mic in the headset, that's how smoking the cigar worked in London Heist

Tempted to buy a PSVR with the BF sales going on.

 

Amazon has the PSVR and Camera for $250, and Target has the PSVR with Doom VFR pre order for $300. Everywhere else lists the $400 price since it's released after BF. 

 

Does anyone know if the Amazon bundle is V1 or V2? Thinking thats my best option and grab Doom VFR for $30 later. 

(don't care for Skyrim again, or GT Sport)

The only way to get V2 right now is the Skyrim bundle.  Doom bundle supposedly has it as well but as you know it's not out yet.  Every other way to get the PSVR (as of now) will be the V1 headset.

(oops, 2nd link verifies Doom bundle is V2)

Doom and Skyrim will be V2.

 

Now I guess i pre-order the Doom bundle.

Anyone tried out Skyrim and want to state an opinion?  

As to Robinson - Agree with the above poster... and add... seeing those dinosaurs for the first time IS amazing.  Certainly worth a $10 price if you can find it.  (It was neat enough that I let my entire family see it.)

Thanks!! I very much appreciate your response (as well as others who chimed in), but it turned out to be moot. Dell just put up the Skyrim bundle so I went with that. 

For anyone else interested, Dell has the Skyrim bundle for $335 + free shipping. On top of that, e.bates has 10% cashback ($33.5), and if you sign up for Dell Advantage (free), they'll you'll also get 3% ($10) future Dell credit.  I also happened to have the Amex offer for $50 statement credit, so all told, I got it for:
$335 + $29 (CA tax) = $364 (-$33.5 ebates CB - $50 Amex statement credit) = $280... and a future $10 Dell credit.

Mentioned it earlier but for Skyrim is incredible. There are some very important caveats and I've played about 10 hours already which is nothing in that game but here are my general observations.

 

-Played tons of Oblivion but only a tiny bit of Skyrim so Skyrim is mostly new to me. There is so much content where scale is effective that I don't see myself getting bored of just walking around in the world.

-It's blurry to an extent and having just played Rec Room I forgot how crisp basic graphics can be in VR. There's plenty of games with some blur to accommodate the performance issues but imo its subjective whether its a dealbreaker and is certainly not too bad for me.

-I'm playing with a DS4 just to be the most efficient and find walking around the world super easy. Only Rigs has made me motion sick sense getting my VR legs so Skyrim feels pretty easy going to me.

-The amount of content , freedom, and interaction are pretty incredible in VR. Interiors are a lot more personal when standing there despite how cookie cutter they tend to be.

Probably very ymmv, but amazon is advertising on its black friday deals page the Gran Turismo bundle for $249.99 in the image for "save $100 on PSVR bundles".  Actual item when you click through is $299, but you might be able to get a chat rep to honor that mistake.  You need to go to the BF deals page, then find the VR deal when you filter to video games.

The Dell PSVR deal looks pretty decent, but it is definitely for those who really want Skyrim, and don't already have anything to use with PSVR. (the camera, and the move controllers) I would never have gotten that bundle, as I already had a full set of Move equipment, and the PS4 camera.

 

There are actually a fair number of really good deals for the PSVR this Black Friday. I paid $300 earlier in the year for the bundle with the headset, camera, and three downloadable games. Anyone looking to get in now can find the base model for $200, which is a steal if you already have the associated accessories.

Bought the Skyrim bundle at Walmart, realized i only had 1 of the old ps3 move controllers, and the other nunchuck looking one (still even used?)

 

I don't really want Skyrim (again) anyone know what BB/GS etc gives for trade in? Looked at BB site and it's not listed at all for trade in, except normal ps4/xbox versions.

Nunchuk isn't used since the camera can't track it.
GS gives $20 base value, be better off selling it
