#14011043 Official Playstation VR Deals and Discussion Thread

Posted by plus1zero on 13 June 2018 - 06:17 PM

Enthusiasts should get PSVR then. It is quickly becoming the only VR that matters.


If you’re an enthusiast you should get a PC VR headset. The PSVR is an incredibly good value and by far the best compared to the stuff like daydream/Gear but it doesn’t compare to full room VR.

#14008221 Days of Play 2018 - 11 days of PlayStation deals and new limited edition PS4

Posted by plus1zero on 10 June 2018 - 07:56 AM

well then, I will let Linus Tech convinces you. The HTC Vive Pro is the most advanced VR experience currently and it is still disappointing while insanely expensive (you look at $1000+ for the best VR gear for a merely acceptable VR experience)

...why would I let Linus convince me of anything? The Vive Pro is extremely overpriced and a .5 upgrade. Also considering you said you played with PSVR for 5 minutes and didn’t enjoy low res Skyrim on console because you couldn’t play it on your OLED sounds like a personal problem. You’re already playing lower res Skyrim than what PC is capable of. Try PCVR and then we’ll talk.

I own a Vive and I owned a PSVR awhile back. There’s a huge difference when Roomscale is involved. If you’ve never tried it, it’s irrelevabt because it’s not something that can be explained.

Also, the Vive Pro is the same resolution as the $400 Samsung Odyssey btw. Point still stands PCVR isn’t 10x more expensive. There’s a $399 Rift bundle with $50 GC on slickdeals right now.

don't bother with PSVR.  I picked it up today for a price mistake at Target, set it up and regretted it.  The resolution was so terrible (I missed playing game on my 4K HDR OLED TV) that I could describe to you as being surrounded by 1 giant CRT monitor.  The image quality was so blurry that it took the immersion out.

 

I tried all the demos on PS Store as well as the Skyrim VR.  God, that was the fugliest Skyrim experience I have ever had.  It just like playing Skyrim at the lowest setting with the lowest fps.

 

This generation VR is a gimmick (same goes for the Occulus and HTC Vive since they are just slightly better but 10x times more expensive).  I think we are 10 years away from a good VR experience.

Have you tried the Rift/Vive? It's anything but a gimmick. 

Also Skyrim on Rift/Vive is a night and day different experience than PSVR. For one, you're not limited by the 180 degree FOV. PSVR is very good for console VR, but PCVR is much better. It's also not 10x as much, Rift bundles can be had for $400, Vive bundles can be had for $500. And there are WMR headsets for $200 or so.

Not to be mean, but I'm glad you were stopped from flipping, though the person who stole it is also an ass.

Why do you care if he flips an old game? 




#14002634 $500 TCL P Series This Saturday

Posted by plus1zero on 31 May 2018 - 06:45 AM

I’d second this. While I didn’t purchase the TCL. I highly considered the p605. And was about to pull the trigger and read a decent amount of people with issues. It seemed like it was playing a lottery and most people had to exchange sets to get one with none/less issues. The Sony 900e was on sale for Black Friday sales so I got it for $999. So for me personally I’ve been extremely happy with my 900e. Purchased in Nov 17 and haven’t had a single issue. The only complaints I’ve seen in reviews on the 900e seem to be with sound, but it seems fine to me. I’ve been considering getting the Sony HTCT800 sound bar, especially now that it’s on sale at BB. But I’m not even sure I need it.


There’s a Samsung soundbar in the Walmart thread that’s like $35 if you can find one

Got some good and bad news regarding a used vita today. Found someone on the Facebook marketplace selling one for 60 bucks. Was dead but whatever, it charged up fine.

ANYWAY the good news is it has firmware 2.2 on it. Henkaku will be loaded after I clean this thing with alcohol a few times because on the camera roll was a homemade sex tape of two skinny rednecks🤦🏻‍♂️ Guess the good outweighs the bad.

Maybe. Any of y’all want a slightly crusty vita?

Made a few rounds to the local pawn shops today and got a few dual shock 3s for cheap and a few games along the way. Love the cash same as credit promo, made a nice little profit for about an hour of work

I mean there’s clear evidence the mainstream media lies often. Not accepting their word as gospel and looking what might be a cover up shouldn’t ostracize someone.

I dont think SH was a conspiracy at all FWIW. At the same time if I was a celebrity I would keep political views to myself. Why these people think it does more help than harm to make half of your fans mad at you is a good thing is beyond me.

Posted by plus1zero on 31 March 2018 - 02:33 AM

We just sold our TV and were at Best Buy just now looking at the P605. I’d like to wait for the new models, but I’m so tempted with the 605...I noticed some ppl saying the corners of the display are dim. Do you notice that?


I had one briefly and didn’t experience that, but the HDR wouldn’t turn on or turn off properly for me Switching to the dashboard a lot.

Posted by plus1zero on 28 March 2018 - 11:29 PM

Why was it only $165? I'm thinking of doing the same thing but I wanted SOT. The VCR trades for $150 plus the $25 trade active offer should gross $175. Debating if the S is worth the xtra $ though since I am only gaming on a 22" HD monitor with 8,000,000:1 high dynamic contrast ratio (which I have no idea how that compares to high dynamic range but anyhow....).


Those old contrast numbers were always so bizarre lol. You won’t notice a difference unless you have HDR. Lot smaller and more sleek though

Tempted to pick up a Vita.


Do it. Lot of good stuff on that system and with the Switch’s success, Sony could have had a sure fire winner on their hand had they not treated this like a step child. It still does most standard things better than the Switch.

To be fair, they told everyone who voted for Trump to Fuck off, not just the “alt right”. What did they expect would happen when they told 63 million people to Fuck off ?

Also, it appears they later backtracked that comment but the damage was already done.


How delusional do you have to be to voice politics in a position like that? If I made a game/movie/album etc I wouldn’t say a word on politics. I mean what good comes from it? You might make 10 people buy your game because of it, but you’re going to alienate thousands.
