Finished Moss the other day. Was much longer then I thought it was going to be based on reviews/comments but I guess I was doing the free DLC levels without realizing they weren't already part of the original release. :D

No Man's Sky VR Update hits August 14th with "substantial" online play added as well:

 

 

It's currently 10 bucks used at Gamestop and the update is free. All impressions so far on the VR have been extremely positive save from some saying that the some of the  flight aspects are intense and induced motion sickness in some instances.

No Man's Sky is showing as $20 used on their website for me...?

Think the $10 used was wrong, New is $10 but it was converted to used quite a while ago. I got a used copy a month ago on Ebay for $8 before the prices started to climb, interest must be going up with this new update announced because it's hovering around $20 now.

I grabbed this at Walmart when it was down to $9 after hearing about the VR update. Very excited to hear the positive comments so far for the VR play

So looking at PSVR and cheapest bundle I can find is Doom bundle at $225 with camera, no move controllers.

Have about $400 in gamestop credit, would need to be bought from gamestop.

 

Was tempted to buy used/refurb PSVR, but don't trust gamestop refurbs. Rather get it all new and have peace of mind.

Am I better off waiting until later for better deals?

 

Gamestop has to have very little stock of PSVR and mostly have refurbs in stock.

They have $350 bundle with 2 games, 2 moves and camera.

We're less than four months away from Black Friday. I think you should wait until then. Last year there was a bundle with Move controllers for $250. You'll want Move controllers.

Stock might not be an issue if Sony sends out new bundles for the holiday season. Maybe Iron Man will be released in time for a bundle with Move controllers. But I'm wondering if Iron Man will even make it out this year.

Agree to wait. There will be absolutely be at least one new bundle and it will also absolutely be on sale for $250. And one of the bundles will have something brand new.

Yeah I would never get a PSVR without the move controllers.  You will be missing out on some of the best games if you don't get them.

Best I can find at gamestop is $225 for doom bundle and move controllers is $100 or $60 used. So $325+tax or $295 with used ones.

Could also buy refurb for $150, but rather get it all new. Also heard older move controllers batteries dying out and new ones have micro usb.

You definitely want new move controllers. Even new the charge they keep isn't more than a gaming session or 2. And yes, the new Moves have a micro usb.

No Man's Sky supports VR today. Reports are unsurprisingly that the game is pretty blurry but many have been so impressed by the experience in VR that the expected hit in fidelity isn't a deal breaker. Will post impressions later today if thread isn't dead.

I didn't even know there was a physical edition of the Penn & Teller VR game until I saw it on Amazon.  Didn't see it listed anywhere else - is this an Amazon exclusive?

So far it appears Amazon exclusive, but it isn't actually in stock yet and the latest update Amazon sent me is that it will ship next week.

TL:DR on No Man's Sky is that it's had major QOL improvement, even more features added, a very, very blurry VR conversion with most control options available (move, DS4, etc.) and so many bugs added that 3 hot fixes have been deployed in the last 24 hours. Unless you are dying to get back into the game I'd recommend waiting until there's a reasonable performance and graphics patch along with a few critical bug fixes.

I played No Man's Sky for three hours yesterday, and I thought it was great. It felt like my first few hours with Conan Exiles. I have to build towards getting basic tools, and I need to keep myself alive with resources. I was hoping to find another Survival game I would like, and No Man's Sky seems to be it. I'm playing on Survival difficulty.

The VR controls feel good. I'm playing with movement and turning set to Smooth. I think they did a nice job at making the Move gestures immersive. The only thing that was kind of difficult was flying my space ship, but when I switched flight controls to Normal instead of Inverted it became easier. Which is kind of odd since in non-VR games I use inverted controls.

It was my first time playing No Man's Sky, so graphical downgrades weren't apparent to me. And I was so in to the gameplay I was probably overlooking the graphics anyway.

Little Witch Academia: VR Broom Racing Kickstarter campaign has added a physical PSVR copy as an option, though you have to pledge at least at the 9000 yen (about $85) level, and shipping pushes it over $100.

For those interested, it's also likely that LRG will have copies for sale on their site after production. They've been coy about giving a direct answer (usually something like "it's possible that we may have some leftover copies"), but to-date I can't think of a single Kickstarter game they, or anyone else, have done that's stayed Kickstarter exclusive. At most you may be missing out on something like a slipcover or manual.

I backed digitial. I do bet LRG will have some physical copies available soon after KS fulfillments and I'm kinda surprised LWA kept it locked into the $85 tier.

Check your local Walmart (put in your zip code).  The ones near where I live sell it new for $9.98.

About to go live with that No Man's Sky PSVR stream in a few minutes (link).

 

Edit: Archive:

 

 

It works really well in VR, though there are a few controls things that are a bit confusing at first. The game runs really well in VR with the caveat being that the resolution at mid to long range distances are pretty low along with the draw distance being pretty low, so you have to focus more on what's immediately around you. Flying in the ship can be a bit touchy at first since the flight stick is very sensitive.
