Why would you sell your launch headset?  You won't get very much for it and you'll want it as a back up in case your new one ever kicks the bucket.

if he offloads the V1 headset then it's a free upgrade to the V2 headset so I mean

Free upgrade?  I sincerely doubt anyone is going to pay $299 for a used PSVR headset.  The fact that it's a v1 model won't increase the value.

If he got it on QVC deal, he only needs to get around 90 dollars for the V1 headset to be a free upgrade for him.

Yeah he said right in the post that he got he $90 qvc bundle

Oh yea, I'm an idiot.  Even still, if it works, I'd keep it.  A lot of people have reported problems with their headset after a while and if he ever needs to get another one, he'll have to pay for something he already has.

Still waiting on Knockout League to go on sale, it seems that game never goes on sale.

Damn Raw Data for $16.  I might have to jump on that.  I remember finding the demo very fun but thought $40 was expensive for it.  $16 seems like the lowest I remember ever seeing it.

The new deal this week:

 

Guns’n’Stories: Bulletproof VR - $13.99 - 30% Off - $11.99 - 40% Off - Ends 2/6

 

New demos:

 

Eden Tomorrow

Despite how generic the store page looks, the demo for Eden Tomorrow was decent. Kind of like the ambition of Robinson: The Journey with the budget of the first Unearthing Mars. Supposedly it was released on the 17th, but it's not available to buy on the store yet. I'd probably pick it up for sub-$10.

 

Anyone have any thoughts on Guns N' Stories? Similar to Cold Iron or no?

 

I shouldn't complain about a free VR experience, but I can't believe this is 12GB. It's two songs performed in concert in 180° 3D -- not immersive VR. You get three camera angles; one medium length, one "close-up" (the preferred) and one from a distance with zoom ability. Hikaru is beautiful to watch though, and I love the concept of her singing only to you, but unfortunately the scale is off and she looks a little diminutive. However, when she gets off the stage and walks towards you during "Simple and Clean," I did tear up a little.

Yes this is the cheapest Raw Data has been. It is, however, the third time that it’s hit this price.

Just played the Raw Data demo again to see if I wanted to buy it before the sale was up.  It was pretty fun and the teleportation movement was actually pretty easy to use and get used to quickly.  I remember it was one of the first things I ever tried when I got my PSVR and it was weird to me, but now, even though I haven't played a teleportation game, it still felt really easy to do.

 

Graphics in that game are pretty damn bad though lol.  Jaggies galore.  But the game was fun and that's all that matters.

I tried launching it after midnight last night (PST) and got a message saying that the trial was over.

I can confirm mine is over too. Not sure if it only lets you launch it once or what.

 

I got in a couple of games yesterday. Not really my kind of thing. Multiplayer games are so damn repetitive. The entire novelty lies around using the Aim again. Time to put it back in storage.

Anyone played Ace Combat 7 yet on PSVR?  I'm curious to hear feedback if so.

There's a demo on the Japanese PlayStation Store:

You only get to play for a few minutes.  I think it ends after completing the first mission objective.

 

I really enjoyed it but the full game only has 3 VR missions so I'm gonna hold off for a deep discount.

I still need to check out the free trial before it ends tonight.

Damn I had no clue that AC7 was only 3 levels in VR and not the whole game.  Yeah that is a hard pass for me.

 

I do have a japanese PSN account so I may check out the demo though.

 

EDIT:

 

Downloading the demo right now.

Jesus I couldn't play Ace Combat 7 in VR for more than like 20 seconds.  I got the VR sickness feeling almost immediately as soon as you take off and start to turn and shit.  Fuck that.

Hopefully ac7 will be at redbox to rent and complete all the vr material

That was my experience with Dirt Rally VR. I got about 45 seconds of driving in before i had to quit.

Yeah I've played through the feeling and know that it's a bad idea lol.  So I just took it off and that was that.  

 

I also feel like it had partially to do with how many jaggies that game has.  Even when I was in the hangar just looking around, something felt a bit off and I think it was all of the jaggies.

Reminds me that I have one from getting Tekken Dark Resurrection (I think) when it was only available there. Time to dig up the password.

I'm sure that was a bit of it. Also the fact that the framerates are all over the place and my body in the actual car just seemed to be randomly floating around and not moving with the bumps in the road. I might go back someday but i deleted it off my console the same day i bought it.

Played some Raw Data for the first time yesterday.  It's pretty fun and the accuracy of the guns was pretty damn good.  I enjoyed shooting the pistol by "holding" it like a real pistol and having my off hand up under the bottom of it.  I felt like I could get head shots pretty reliably that way.  The game definitely shows it's age and the graphics are very jaggie. 

 

And man playing a game like this makes me wish that there were some updated PS Move controllers with an analog stick on them.  Pressing the buttons to turn like 45 degrees or whatever works, but when moving quickly it's pretty easy to become a bit disoriented.  Like being able to just strafe by pushing an analog stick to the right or left would make this game a lot more enjoyable and easier to control.

I called up QVC yesterday when I noticed the bundle was back in stock. They were able to approve a new order with the same price of $89.96 after mine was canceled. After tax and shipping, it came out to about $115 and I just saw it was updated to shipped status!

Now to sell off my launch release headset.


Thank you so much for posting this. Due to your post I contacted them and my units have shipped out.

Also just played it, after taking off the headset I was drenched (it was pretty gross). :p but I really thought the game was a lot of fun.
