I look at the move controllers as an extra hassle that "might" have a return on the investment. Games like Superhot obviously use them in really great ways but Skyrim for example was perfectly fine with the DS4. Tracking is also an issue for me even in the best cases because I have a low tolerance for inaccuracy I don't think I've ever had a session that was an hour long or more where the move controllers didn't have an issue. Still buying Beat Saber day one though.

Weird. I'd have said that Skyrim VR without Move is kind of pointless since it's a worse version of the remaster. If you're not dual-wielding spells and weapons while picking up items freely from the cursor, it's not doing much with the VR part of the game to wow you.

I loved Skyrim more for virtual tourism than anything else. I had never played it and beat the campaign and a few guild quests with the intention of going back eventually. The combat model kind of just got in the way for me.

Yeah I mean I'm glad I have them and all things equal, if someone asked me, I'd recommend to get a bundle that includes them so you can't be left out from any experiences.  But if it cuts cost and the difference makes people willing to pick up PSVR, I say grab it without the move controllers and then decide later if you want them.

 

I agree about tracking with them it can be very odd sometimes, but usually when I just wiggle them it seems to fix itself.  It's happened with Super Hot and also with The London Heist on the one disc.  But in games like Job Simulator I feel the tracking on it is pretty poor.  The tracking on I Expect You to Die was pretty good though.  

 

Hopefully the tracking on Beat Saber is perfect though.

I was going to wait until Pro day to get a used copy at GameStop, but since Astro Bot came back in stock at Best Buy, i used my 10% off birthday coupon and $10 reward to get it for $26.

Tetris Effect is pretty great, maybe not 90 metacritic or 40 bucks great but good enough to get at 30 bucks even for casual fans. If you hate Tetris this game isn't likely to change that though.

My closest GS has Astrobot preowned. You guys are really selling me on it. I might have to pick it up this week. 

 

Have to say it's one of the best games i've played in VR. Platformer in VR, perfect mix.

Just stay away from the playroom, you'll be in there with the sets you unlock for a hour+ without even realizing.  :lol:

This will be a great way to use up some credit. I have like $150 credit left from trading in my VCR Xbox One and I never shop at GameStop because other places seem to have better deals. I’ll be getting all three if I can find them

Edit: I forgot to ask, where did you see this? Also is it for used or “new”?

Thanks for the heads up. I already have an aim controller so was waiting on a good discount for Firewall. Anyone actually play it? For $10 and the ability to resell it's a pretty safe bet, just curious if anyone here had impressions

Wow how is Firewall only $10?  That is a steal.  However, you NEED to have PS+ to play this game right?  Since it's online only?

Hmmm maybe I'll buy it at $10 just in case one day I get PS+ again or get a trial.

Thanks to purbeast for mentioning (and Moonbathing for confirming) that Firewall is online only. It prompted me to look up a video review. Although the guy gave it a 9/10, I realized that it just wasn’t my kind of game. I like shooters but rarely play online. If it goes plus I’ll definitely give it a try though

It's by far the best aim supported game on PSVR but incredibly dumb the game requires plus, even for bots. Moreover it really is an MP focused game so it's smart to know whether that's your kinda thing or not.

Just to clarify, Firewall has always-online DRM even for single player, but PS+ is not required for single player.  Single player is a solo terrorist hunt training mode where the maps are populated by lots of enemies (not a full structured 4v4 match with all bots).

It looks like they "fixed" the ad (with hilariously awful typography), Firewall is now going to be $19.99.

Didn't Star Trek and Werewolves Within have always online drm too? Yuck, I expected this type of scummy crap from Ubisoft but why is a Sony published game playing us like that? It's sad to think in 20 or 30 years when people want to experience the very first vr systems some of these games will be nothing more than paperweights.

It probably was a price error, but it makes me think back to the Power Pass last year. "People are excited. Scrap it."

That's pretty funny the way they slipped that 1 in there like that.  While they were at it, they should have used a different font and color, too.

At that price, everyone should own Astrobot. You will get more than $20 worth out of the game, easily.

There's a free beta that's running a couple of months for a Moba/Hero Shooter called Megalith:

 

https://blog.us.play...-beta-tomorrow/

 

I played it and it's a great gameplay loop and pretty fun but looks like MP could become a ghost town quickly or even DOA unless the PSVR user grows a bunch and/or they add a solid campaign of some sort.

I live near this store, and it sucks. They can never find the clearance deals, and the department managers are no help. I went in looking for one of these yesterday and they said they don't have them. They even had the 17.3" Acer Predator laptop with the GTX 1070 for $399 last week with 4 available on brickseek and said they didn't have any (brickseek went to 0 after two days).

And this Dell G3 Laptop for $249 (still showing 2), told me they didn't have it either. https://brickseek.co.../?sku=822934571
