What are the generally accepted "must have" PSN PSVR games that are on sale right now that everyone's been buying (and aren't available on disc)? Sorry if this has already been discussed 100 times.

Unfortunately, most of those sales have ended. I mentioned it before, but I think Thumper was a pretty cool visual experience (it's also really challenging). There's a demo available on both of the demo discs, so definitely check that out and see if it's your cup of tea. Also, Rez Infinite and Raw Data were pretty cool but I haven't picked those up yet. (The demos for Moss and Star Child on Demo Disc 2.0 are also really fun, but the full games have yet to be released.)

 

Make sure to keep a fresh pair of trousers around for when you play the "Kitchen" teaser. And while you're at it, check out the Job Simulator demo (on either of the discs). And download The Playroom VR (free) for a couple of cool minigames. If you've played The Last Guardian, download The Last Guardian VR Demo for a short but memorable experience in that world (also free). Also, if you have Star Wars: Battlefront, download the free Rogue One X-Wing VR Mission -- you won't regret it.

 

I just got done playing a series of "bargain bin" titles I purchased during the PSN Holiday Sale, so I'll outline them loosely here (for anyone who's interested).

 

Manifest 99: Extremely short VR experience with minimal interaction (you lock eyes with characters in order to "teleport"/further the story). It's simple to play but it's a satisfying emotional journey. It's still on sale for $4.19 until 1/16. (For a non-interactive, great VR story, download Allumette for free from the PSN store.)

 

Soul Dimension: Billed as "Episode 0" ("Episode 1 coming soon" ...we'll see), it's a short atmospheric story where all the solutions are plain and obvious and it's not really scary at all. Also, the voice acting is really really bad. I don't recommend this one, but it's on sale for $3.49/$2.49.

 

Weeping Doll: Easily the worst-looking VR game I've ever played. It amounts to viewing VR goggles through Vaseline-coated lenses. The game took me about an hour (after a game-breaking bug where I lost a key, forcing me to restart), but the gameplay is at least minimally interesting (there is no proper ending, though; just a room full of credits). I bought it for 99 cents, so it's hard to complain too much.

 

Dying: Reborn VR: Basically "Escape Room: The Game." If you purchase this, make sure to get the Dying Reborn: Ultimate Bundle ($4.99/$2.49), which includes the crossbuy for PSVR, PS4 and Vita. The reason is that the VR version only contains 3 levels from the PS4/Vita version and no ending. It's incredibly pointless. I completed the VR sections, now I'm going to go back and play the whole game on PS4 with half of the puzzles already solved in my brain.

 

I still haven't resolved to buy Bound from the PSN sale, since I stupidly neglected to add it to my PS+ free games in November. I know I'll regret it as soon as the sale is over, but I honestly can't spare another $7 after everything I've splurged on. I did download the demo though, and it seems like a uniquely visual striking experience (camera angles are a little wonky, though).

 

I might pick up Virry VR: Feel the Wild ($2) for the hell of it. I wish I could find a decent space exploration sim, but neither Apollo 11 nor Unearthing Mars seem to have gotten any good feedback.

I picked this up with Weeping doll for a few bucks the other day during the sale. Guess I should've snagged the bundle. Womp Womp

You can still nab the full version on its own for relatively cheap until Tuesday. ($3.99/1.99 PS+)

I just finished it. There are some slight differences in the puzzles, but at the very least, it offers much more of the story. There's also apparently another ending, so I'm going to give it a last quick once-over.

 

EDIT: Alternate ending made even less sense than the normal one. What a waste of time...

I played the Kitchen demo after I'm like 1/2 through RE7 and the graphics on the demo are noticeably of lower quality.  It does give a pretty good vibe of the environment of RE7 though.  I expected more from the Kitchen demo though based off of what I heard about it.  It's really short.

Yea I agree. I was not impressed also. But it was one of the first ps vr experiences they had, so I’m sure then it was pretty neat. Especially not knowing it was RE.


I really enjoyed SuperHot vr and Job Simulator, JS even has an easy Platinum. I haven’t got to play a bunch of the games I was interested in.

The Kitchen demo was amazing at the time, before RE7 was realeased. It was an awesome preview of what to expect in RE7. It also probably never got a Pro enhancement, but I could be wrong about that.

Super Hot is a top 3 PSVR game, imo, and the $25 price tag is a steal. I really hope they are working on another one, or at least some more areas to play.

A few of the games I’ve been holding out on. TinyTrax, Fruit Ninja, Raw Data, Paranormal Activity, Doom, Shooty Fruit, SuperHyper Cube, and I Expect You to Die. There is a couple more that’s just what I could remember. I do have Skyrim vr but haven’t started it. I also beat(got platinum) RE7 on PS4 and would like to play it in vr. My video game time has been really limited lately. When I’ve had time I’ve been playing Origins, I’m really enjoying it.

Does anyone know if the German release of Dirt Rally has the VR content on disc? Ditto with the US release of Tomb Raider. Those are the only 2 I can't confirm if the content is on disc or not.


It is on the disc for Tomb Raider i believe, as that was one of it's selling points along with all DLC included when it came to PS4

do all the headsets come with small/major scratches on the lenses? I just opened the Skyrim bundle after doing a return @ Best Buy because the lenses had major scratches on them. The new one has them too but are smaller than the original. is this a normal thing for the PS VR and does it affect the gameplay in anyway if some scratches exist??

Virry VR: Feel the Wild - $3.99 - 60% Off - $1.99 - 80% Off - Ends 1/16

  • Not a game, but it's a safari documentary of sorts with some good 360 videos of various types of animals that you can learn about them and answer some quizzes. It's a neat learning tool and one of the few good 360 videos I've seen in VR.
I bought it cos I'm a risk taker. Eh, it's okay. I watched an elephant take a piss.
 
However, only 3 environments and 8 animals? I was expecting this to be the Encarta of VR. They could have done so much more. As it stands, there is zero replay value.
 
You get 15 minutes free of live feed from Kenya, but one of the cameras is frequently "down for maintenance" while the other two are just regular non-VR footage (of which I mostly enjoyed a blank landscape and a few deer).
 
The real educational experience I got from this was learning the difference between 360 video and 3D VR. Virry VR is anything but. It's flat 2D 360 video with visible stitching and incorrect scaling (everything looks like it's being projected on an IMAX screen) which hardly makes it feel immersive. Overall, that's been my experience of most 360 videos I've seen. As a result, I spent all day "researching" (i.e. watching a shitload of videos) on various PSVR apps (YouTube, Hulu, Littlstar, Within, Jaunt), trying to find the best content. There's also a pretty good playlist on YouTube, but it's a little bloated. 
 
Compare Virry VR to something like National Geographic's 3D 360° videos (available for free on YouTube) and there's no contest. The only problem is that streaming video always looks like crap compared to the downloaded stuff. I wish there was a way to force it to buffer because it feels like I'm watching everything in 480p.
 
A few highlights you may have already come across:
 
Invasion! (CGI)
Asteroids! (CGI)
Allumette (stop-motion)
Evolution of Verse (Within app)
The House VRX (Hulu; 8 episodes)
Escape from Calypso Island: A 360° VR Adventure (The Rock Presents)
Interrogation VR (Funny or Die)
Conan 360° videos
SNL 40 360° videos
Super Mario Bros 3D 360° VR: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year (YouTube; fan-made)
Pac-Man in 360° (YouTube; fan-made)
Five Nights at Freddy's 360° (BlackBoxTV)
 
I probably watched about 100 videos in all. Not surprisingly, a lot of the best ones are tied to movie properties (and of those, most of them are horror). Since there's no master list anywhere on the web, I figured I'd compile them here for reference. (Let me know if there are any glaring omissions worth checking out.)
 
Alien Covenant: In Utero - A 360° Virtual Reality Experience
Annabelle: Creation VR - Bee's Room
The Conjuring 2: Experience Enfield VR 360°
Crimson Peak (Beware Crimson Peak)
Fifty Shades Darker: The Masquerade Ball - A Cinematic VR Experience
The Hunger Games: Virtual Reality Experience
Insidious: Chapter 3 360° VR
IT: FLOAT - A Cinematic VR Experience
Kong VR: Destination Skull Island
The Magnificent Seven: Western VR Experience
Mr. Robot: Virtual Reality Experience
The Mummy: Zero Gravity Stunt in 360°
Nerve: VR Dare - Climb Across the Ladder
Ouija: Origin of Evil 360° VR
Pete's Dragon 360° VR Experience: Elliot's Flyover
Rogue One Recon: A Star Wars 360° Experience
Stranger Things: Virtual Reality 360° Experience
Star Wars: The Force Awakens 360° Experience
The Walk: Virtual Reality Experience
The Walking Dead 360° Experience: Negan Under Attack
 
Speaking of which, I'm not sure how it escaped my detection before, but the PSN store has Spider-Man Homecoming: The Virtual Reality Experience. It's about a 5-minute game in the same vein as Arkham VR. At the price of free, it's kind of hard not to recommend.
 
I've also been eyeing a few other "experiences" on the PSN store, but after getting burned on Ghostbusters VR, I'm hesitant to try any of them.
 
Justice League VR: The Complete Experience
Kismet (fortune teller app)
The Martian VR Experience
Passengers: Awakening VR Experience
Stranger Things: The VR Experience (a playable version of this is supposed to be on PSN, but it doesn't seem to be available in the US anymore)
 
Last but not least, I've been viewing trailers for upcoming PSVR games this year. These are the highlights so far:
 
The American Dream: A Samurai Punk Virtual Reality Trip
Blood & Truth
Dragonflight
Golem
The Inpatient
Rick & Morty: Virtual Rick-ality
Torn
Transference
Xing: The Land Beyond
 
I've been inside virtual reality all day. I'm going to have strange dreams tonight.
 
P.S. Don't even get me started on VR porn...

I've noticed the same thing, man. From the moment I unboxed it, I inspected little scratches which I tried to buff out with the provided cloth. I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that it didn't come with plastic covers on the lenses (mine also came with the Skyrim bundle). Another thing I noticed is a small visible green dot on the left side (out of my right eye). Every time the screen is blank, my eye always goes to it. I think it might be a missing pixel or something. I've already contacted PlayStation support and they offered to exchange/repair it via mail. The only problem is that it's a 3-4 week turnaround and I don't think I could live without VR for that long.

Has anyone else played The Invisible Hours? I just finished Chapter 3/4 and I’m really enjoying it. It’s like watching a murder mystery playout. I really hope there will be more games like this in the future.

I beat it and it was excellent. If it weren't kinda slow I'd go back for the plat as there's a couple of story threads I never closed. The Ubisoft game Transference seems like it's going in that direction though its going to be much trippier and less about everything happening in realtime.

The storyline is fantastic, although the gameplay (constantly rewinding) is pretty tedious. I would recommend going back and closing all those threads, as well as everything having to do with the spirit radio and that hotel room...

I never said it was encyclopedic and it even says on the page itself that it has 35 minutes of video for eight experiences, so that's a weird leap of expectations from what I said.

 

360 video is generally very bad in VR because most of the cameras and footage are not high quality, whether that's due to current 360 camera tech or just cheaply made videos, and that most of it is streaming to add further video quality issues. I've even gotten slight nausea from some of the video apps because it was so bad that I couldn't take it anymore. It's pretty much only the locally downloaded/streamed stuff that looks good and Virry VR stands above all of the apps and Youtube VR for that reason. Then there are the CG experiences like Invasion and whatnot that are actually made for VR, so it looks good for that.

Other than that, it's a standard relaxation experience for VR.

Yeah, I'm not sure what the hell I was expecting. At least a damn giraffe.

 

I don't mind taking a chance for $2, but it bothers me to think that anyone would pay full price for that. On the bright side, I revisited the live feed and got a couple of cool scenic shots of deer, rhinos, monkeys and a couple of exotic birds (all in one frame). Oddly, once the 15 minutes are up, you're not even given the option to pay premium to view more. You're just barred from accessing the "live" section from now on.

 

Anyway, for anyone who's curious, I thought this was pretty comparable to the whole experience (except in 3D). 

 

Also, any of the National Geographic 360.

 

Live and learn.

If I still had my copy, I’d send it to it. Gave it to my friend that bought my older headset. Though it’s not sealed, it’s in perfect condition. Considering it’s available digitally I have no use for it. Maybe someone else is similar.

The Martian VR Experience
Passengers: Awakening VR Experience
Stranger Things: The VR Experience (a playable version of this is supposed to be on PSN, but it doesn't seem to be available in the US anymore)
 
Last but not least, I've been viewing trailers for upcoming PSVR games this year. These are the highlights so far:
 
The American Dream: A Samurai Punk Virtual Reality Trip
Blood & Truth
Dragonflight
Golem
The Inpatient
Rick & Morty: Virtual Rick-ality
Torn
Transference
Xing: The Land Beyond
 
I've been inside virtual reality all day. I'm going to have strange dreams tonight.
 
P.S. Don't even get me started on VR porn...
 
Spoiler

 

Can we get some of this info in the OP?

I've noticed the same thing, man. From the moment I unboxed it, I inspected little scratches which I tried to buff out with the provided cloth. I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that it didn't come with plastic covers on the lenses (mine also came with the Skyrim bundle). Another thing I noticed is a small visible green dot on the left side (out of my right eye). Every time the screen is blank, my eye always goes to it. I think it might be a missing pixel or something. I've already contacted PlayStation support and they offered to exchange/repair it via mail. The only problem is that it's a 3-4 week turnaround and I don't think I could live without VR for that long.

 

When I cleaned up the lens before I returned the Skyrim VR bundle (decided to keep the GT bundle from Walmart for $180), I noticed there was a dot on one of the lens which I couldn't wiped it out.  Seems it's some dirt inside. Didn't notice scratch though. I didn't inspect the lens when I first opened it.

The GT Bundle (V1 headset) has absolute very clear lens when I inspected it.

There's a new free VR app on the store called Snatch VR Heist Experience.

 

Based on the Crackle Original Series Snatch, this six-minute immersive experience transports you into the middle of a safe-cracking diamond heist alongside stars Rupert Grint (Harry Potter film franchise), Luke Pasqualino (“Skins,” “The Borgias”), Lucien Laviscount (“Scream Queens”, “Honeytrap”) and Phoebe Dynevor (“The Village,” “Dickensian). Snatch VR Heist Experience was an official selection showcased in Venice Film Festival Virtual Reality, the festival’s first-ever competitive section for VR works.

I tried out The Illusion, which says it's a VR documentary about some soccer player on the page. It's actually just a trailer for the documentary, which is crazy.

Yup, I'm going to send mine back. All the marks on the lenses keep bothering me (I know they were there when I first got it). I already got the return box from PS, but I'm procrastinating and trying to take in as many experiences as possible. I have like a hundred non-VR games to get to in the meantime, but I've become inseparable from VR over the past few weeks. Maybe we just need some time apart to re-evaluate our lives.

 

I finished playing through DOOM VFR. Really fun (hard) game; I didn't get sick once, even though I died like 50 billion times. It even includes some "classic" levels, which actually did succeed in making me nauseous for some reason. But I still plan on getting through all of them. The whole thing is kind of short (actually, really long by VR standards), and besides the odd "teleportation" travel, it really does feel like the real life Doom experience I've been waiting for since, like, 1995.

 

Also, the other day, I downloaded Gary the Gull, another dumb/fun app you can get for free on PSN. It kind of plays like a cartoon but there is minimal (and I mean minimal) interaction. Lasts only a few minutes. I'm getting the most out of my VR headset.

So... who has tried this? 

I know it's free... but is it worth the time?

It's basically a six-minute promo for the show (which I haven't seen...only the movie years back). It's a great example of 360 3D video, but that's about it. The "interactive" element is totally lame (a quick safe-cracking sequence thrown in at the end). I guess it's worth approximately six minutes for free.

Just after I decided to open my copy. To mock me, no less.

Thanks for that.

 

I was ordering some other shit on Amazon and added that to my order.  I hope they put out a left handed patch shortly because I am lefty and don't know how much fun it would be playing it with 2 move controllers and having to aim with my right hand, or aiming with my left hand but it not matching what is going on in the game.

Thanks for the heads up. I checked Gamestop, and they have it for $19.99 as well. Pre-owned is lower than that price. If a store has one in stock.
