Oooo damn, now to wait for the price and a few reviews. Something tells me this will have a waiting list.

I'm sure it will!

KitGuru reports Redditors' speculation on the spec:

The angular design also hints at a much wider FOV compared to current-gen headsets, as the outward kinks line up with where the large lenses would be... Some Redditors think they’ve figured out quite a bit about this headset already. Chances are, it will have dual Fresnel lenses, which are improved to directly tackle foveated rendering, god rays and the screen door effect. Beyond that, it seems likely that the display will be 1440×1600 at 90Hz.


Teaser photo is probably from the bottom of the headset.

Glad to see these new headsets using "inside-out" tracking.

Setting up cameras is just tedious.

If the reviews are good and it comes in at £800 or below I will get it. The main reason I didn't get the Vive was due to the dithering they were doing with the updated hardware and the reason I will never get a Rift is Facebook.

Well, I tried VR on my PlayStation.

Started with PlayStation World's and tried the sea diving. The Shark stuff was genuinely tense, I liked that really cool. I then tried the weird ball hitty thing, the game like but not like pong, was pretty cool too. Then tried the streat boarding down hill game and again thought it was cool. It's really fun. The sea bit was the best of the 3 the fish seemed like they were by you at the start and that you could reach out to them.

But while it was fun it paled in comparison to the half hour I spent on Astro Bot, my god that is strawberry floating ace, like truly amazing. I loved playing it, little things were so strawberry floating cool, like leaning forward and looking around a wall, or leaning down to look under some platforms. Everyone NEEDS to play it, it's a strawberry floating marvel.

Really gled that you're enjoying your steps into VR, Pedz! I feel that non-VR people genuinely don't realise - quite understandably - just how impressive Astrobot is; personally I'd rank the experience towards the top of those that I've had in videogaming.

Rez Infinite is on sale for £12.49. On PSN here

Buy it.

EDIT - Tumble VR is also on sale, and definitely worth the £3.29 they are asking for it...but really just buy Rez.

HSH is bang-on with his purchase advice.

Of course, Polybius is another essential PSVR shooter.

Hmm...of course I don't have the connection with Polybius that I do with Rez, I'm not saying its not good...but if you had to choose between them? I mean its not really a choice is it.

Also I think Polybius will go on sale for quite a bit cheaper than it currently is at some point, buying a copy of Rez on sale is always a good idea.

Also worth pointing out all the other games I posted deals for are only on sale for the next few hours.

Its definitely worth buying Statik right now.

If folks have both of 'em in their PSVR collection, they'll never be short of excellent shooty action :-) .

Just in case you change your mind (or when you do have money to spend)

Do you have a copy of the first DICE Star Wars Battlefront on PS4? If not you can pick it up 2nd hand for a few pounds normally (think its available new from TheGameCollection for £4 at the moment too), its a must have to play the XWing VR Mission which is free DLC.

The 3DRudder is arriving for PSVR on 17 June... move via your feet!

Your 3dRudder grants you full motion control: speed-up, slow down, stop exactly when you choose to. Your hands can finally focus on shooting, looting, hitting just like they would in real life. You are fully immersed in a new, thrilling virtual experience. You run the game.


It seems quite costly at £119 and, as an add-on for an add-on, I'd imagine it could have a fairly niche audience. Even so, perhaps it'll deliver a cool new way of enabling movement in VR games?

It seems that the product is made by the 3DRudder company rather than being a Sony product; it has been available for PC VR for some time now (around two years, I think). Reviews seem to vary, with some folk finding it to be a great tool for movement in games whilst others have found it to be rather clumsy.

I'd imagine that games like Skyrim and Doom could benefit from the device but, as with any game, it'll need the developer to patch in support code.
