I don't get why everyone says the move controller batteries die at a rediculous rate? They have lithium ion batteries, the same as your phone, and dual shock 4. If you left a dualshock sit for 6 months, I doubt people would say it's useless. Seems like a bandwagon situation. Used controllers are to be worried about, but new move controllers? They've sat in a warehouse as long as most items.

 

Extended storage, especially under-charged, will degrade Lithium battery capacity, that's exactly what the unused, even new, controller will be.  You'd better to use it than store it.

It's not an issue for everyday use phone or occasionally use devices as degradation due to charge cycles will be more significant.

I was too .  However,  I ended up getting a preorder, so I thought what the heck.  Worst case, I can probably sell it during Christmas time and get most of my money back.

Out of curiosity, is anyone not upgrading to the Pro but still getting VR?  Has Sony said if it's necessary?

The PS VR is designed for the original PS4 and the Pro is absolutely not necessary for the VR, but should make a bit of a difference performance wise. The real kicker is that even with the Pro you will still need to use the external box to hook the VR up. I'm getting the Pro and VR, but one of the main reasons I am getting a Pro is to have a second PS4 so my girlfriend can play more Fallout 4 and whatever else she wants to play, while I can enjoy more time with all of upcoming releases and maybe even my massive backlog!

just fyi for anyone that preordered at BestBuy and also got in on all those GCs on eBay

 

BB won't let you change payment info to GCs. only another CC. you'll have to return/rebuy it with the GCs

Keep in mind the $500 PSVR bundle comes with "PlayStation VR Worlds" that retails separately for $40. The Core package only comes with a demo disc.


I hadn't been keeping up with announcements, didn't realize they released official pricing on the stand-alone Worlds disc - it is one of the things I was wondering from the start, since I already have a camera and move controllers. $40 is disappointing, was hoping for no more than $30.

Yea I already had a camera and 2 sets of move controllers so I got the core.  With GCU at least Worlds is $31.99 + tax.

 

Also, no Pro here.  Luckily the pro comes out after the VR so unless the 'experience' doesn't cut it, I won't need a pro until they come out with some sort of LE version of the Pro Console.

I like how the only TV ads for this thing so far are from the Taco Bell contest.

You don't watch enough TV then. They have tons of ads showing people freaking out, gasping in awe, and crying playing this.

 

Edit: Or maybe I'm thinking of the Samsung Gear commercial? I watch too much TV...

I tried the VR demo on BestBuy with original PS4, definitely not impressed with the graphics quality, even on resolution wise, while the VR LCD should be 1080 each. I asked the guy a few times if there is anything to adjust for focus or anything (I have close to 20/20 vision despite 30 years on using computer extensively) that there is none.

My Lumia phone with a $10 "VR gear", aka a phone holder on your head, looks better than that.

 

The only thing interested is I can see my controller on the screen when I look down to my hands

Definitely will wait to see any comparison on commercial game with original PS4 and Pro before buying anything.

Just a heads up, the repackaged move controllers coming out with the headset will be revamped a tiny bit as they will have the charging port the DS4 uses versus how they used to use the DS3 style port

That's good to hear, I was wondering how long they'd stay silent on new controllers. Didn't make sense to leave them in PS3 mini USB.

Gonna try to catch one of the Best Buy demo events here they have over the next 2 or 3 weeks to see if I still want mine. Still worried about the comfort of me buying a glasses wearer (I know lots of larger headphones are annoying to wear for extended periods, like Beats or the Premium Gaming Headsets).

 

Also finally found where the hell my PS Move controllers were packed. Didn't realize you had to keep them charged.....so I'll have them charge tonight and see how long they last. Luckily I had a PS4 Camera I got ages back for like 20$ at Walmart

I am going to speculate that the "Worlds disc" will be heavily discounted before (or by) the holidays.

I was wondering how they call Resident Evil Biohazard in Japan and Asia? (where vii is VII)

And just found out... Biohazard Resident Evil (where Z is 7), kinda creative.

But why did they mess up the game name year ago.

 

Update: found my answer and one commenter made a prophecy LOL

I do challenge them to come out a Resident Evil game subtitled Biohazard, just so they can come full circle (which means Japan gets Biohazard: Resident Evil).

I did the VR demo at Best Buy and while the resolution is not great the VR experience is very immersive. That's more what I'm interested in personally, even if the graphical quality isn't amazing how good of a job does it do drawing me in to the experience. Whatever the ocean demo is where you are in the cage where the shark comes after you was what I tried out. It was pretty great.

What a misleading topic.  The only deal so far is for a camera.  This topic should have been titled Playstation Camera deals.

 

Seriously.  Why is this topic even still going?

Looks like here's the list of exclusives from last year.  I"m sure it's increased since

Am I missing something, or is that just a list of PS VR titles? No mention of exclusivity there. I know that Adrift, for example isn't exclusive.

Yes you are right.  I"m not sure which are exclusives.

Anyone ever play a game on PS3 in 3D before? It was pretty cool at the time but it made almost every game look worse because everything had to be rendered twice. One of the biggest reasons for PS4 Pro even existing is to make PSVR games look less bad. Sony just couldn't emphasize this at the reveal because they don't want people thinking they have to get a Pro to use VR.

I see that Amazon has finally put up listings for Drive Club VR, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, and Battlezone (at $59.99! hope that's just a place holder).

 

Does anyone know what other retail VR games there will be at launch? I know of the ones above as well as PS VR Worlds, RIGS, and Batman Arkham VR.

$60?

 

All 3 of those games won't sell unless its in the $30-$40 range.

 

I'm so tempted to buy a PSVR headset but so far I only want to play RIGS and Resident Evil 7. I need MOAR. I hope Skyrim gets support because if so then I'll buy the PSVR day 1 without a second thought.

Dead or Alive Xtreme was going to get a VR update at launch, but now it's postponed.

Thoughts on playing PS4 games with this? We only have one TV so naturally we sometimes conflict on who is watching/playing at that time.

Obviously not the sole reason to get it but it would be a nice factor for me to pull the trigger on it.
