I'm debating between a Switch or a PSVr. If I do the Latter any better deals than the one Sony is running that most stores are carrying, the Doom pak for $299 or the Skyrym for $349? I'm leaning toward the latter for $349

Get a switch....it’s great right now. Vr still needs some polish. Also, Psvr is bound to drop to 150-250 bundle range next yr. VR sets aren’t all that high tech so price drops are bound to happen. Seriously, they’re just one or two cell phone screens and a few sensors in a headset.

How does that paranormal activity game to RE7? I’m like 90 minutes into RE7 and am loving the atmosphere and it’s creeepy as shit. I’ve jumped like a bitch a few times already. I have noticed a little motion sickness feeling in some spots for a second and am on segmented turning too so curious how movement in paranormal is too .

I'd go with PSVR.  It has so much more fun games than the Switch.  I only have 4 Switch games, but I have over 40 PSVR games.

I'm basically getting my son a PS VR for Christmas.  Can anyone tell me how important the move controllers are to the overall experience and whether I should be concerned about any specific version of the move controllers?  I see some that appear to be updated, but I guess that's just for the USB connector?

there are a few good switch games i'm interested in but i do think there is more for the PSVR. Now debating if I should go with the old or new model

The Move Wands do add a sense of immersion to the game that you will definitely appreciate, but they aren't ideal for all games. I'm not sure if they are required or not for Rush Of Blood, but that's a game where you definitely want them. Being able to dual wield and aim and shoot (while not having to worry about mobility since it's an on-rails shooter) feels amazing. With Doom, on the other hand, there was too much going on, on-screen and you couldn't do full locomotion with the wands so It wasn't ideal, at least not for me. 

 

Play some demos and try some games that use them and some that don't. You'll likely appreciate them in some games while wanting to stick to the DS4 for others.

They're very important for many of the biggest/best games, so you should get the Skyrim bundle if you can. It doesn't really matter which version of the Move controllers you have, as I have the originals and they still work very well for PSVR.

From the PSN thread, Amazon has the gold edition of RE7 for $19.99 instead of the normal $50, so those wanting it for PSVR should jump on it ASAP:

I was able to find a copy of Pananormal Activity today at my Best Buy and it retailed for $19.99. I was able to purchase it at $15.99 with GCU. Just a heads up

Just got my Amazon taste in ps4 pro setup, and I do see a BIG difference in the psvr experience! Thumper looks amazing, and Skyrim without the pro line line playing a it with gauze over the screen.

We also noticed additional psvr headset light calibration we don't remember seeing on the ps4.

The $170 with trade in was definitely worth the upgrade to pro.

It’s on PSN for $20. I’m getting a PSVR, is the game any good?

I’ve had some good jump scares so far. Not a lot of direction in the game so you have to figure out what to do to get the next door to open. For $16 to walk around a creepy house it’s solid. I don’t think it’s worth $39. At least it hasn’t shown its worth that yet.

Wow. Just played my VR for the first time yesterday. Amazing (almost regretted getting just the Slim because it is a bit fuzzy compared to my new TV, but a new VR will be out in a few years anyway).

 

I am having issues keeping those headset down on my nose...it likes to drift up. Anyone have advice for this?

Didn't work perfectly...it feels like there needs to be a weight at the top front of the unit

It's not really supposed to be on your nose. Just make sure the headset is fairly tight and you can see clearly in the lenses.

Can anyone comment on how useful the Farpoint controller is for games other than Farpoint?  I'm interested in Farpoint but can wait, but if the controller is generally useful for several other games I wouldn't mind a reason to pull the trigger (no pun intended).

GT Bundle back in stock on Amazon but $279?! Same bundle selling out on Bestbuy, not within 250 miles of me now. I got one but am considering buying the Skyrim bundle instead for the hdr passthrough for my Pro and glorious Sony X930E. Was able to get move controllers for 20% off so $80. So that’s $280 vs $350, is the V2 worth the extra $70?? I’m so indecisive.

Ended up picking up Paranormal Activity at BB just because I was driving by it and like RE7 atmosphere.  They only had 1 left.

Maybe you don't have the back down far enough? My wife always had to move the back further down for a proper fit.

Got one too, don't see anything about a physical copy online. So this may become super rare. My Best Buy only had one as well. The only Best Buy in NYC that had it in stock at all.

Got the Gran Turismo bundle a few days ago.  Luckily I had already picked up physical copies of  VR Worlds, Robinson, Psychonauts and Job Simulator for my collection so had quite a few things to play.

 

I knew what to expect from most of the games thanks to watching Giant Bomb play through most of em when the games launched, but games like Job Simulator are so much more fun experiencing for yourself.

I've only used it on Farpoint and Doom, Yes it's great for Doom. The stupid grenade in left hand does get annoying... but you do get used to it.

 

Arizona Sunshine I have not played, but I guess the Aim controller makes it better.

Go watch some youtube gameplays with the Aim on other games, there has to be some out there.
