    PS VR Discussion Thread

    Guys and Gals,

    I've decided to start a PS VR Discussion thread to discuss anything PS VR for those that have one or are thinking of buying one.

    I started a thread about VR Pinball (using Pinball FX2 VR) and my plans to build a PS4 version of a PinSim but that soon started going off topic a bit (not that I care), but I thought I would start this thread so ANYTHING PS VR can be discussed from now on without worrying about going off topic.

    I don't give a sheed how off topic or not this thread becomes. I'm just going to post stuff in it I find interesting as I find it.

    I'll start off with a link to my initial thread: http://www.aussiearcade.com/showthre...-amp-Real-Pins. Tune into that thread as @hotty and I will be starting the build asap on that.

    I'll post more soon.

    Discuss on!




    What you Need
    If you don't own a ps4/Pro and want a PS VR here's what you need:
    - PS4 Pro 1T (you can get away with slim, but Pro was made for VR) ~$498-550
    - PS VR ~$550
    - PS4 Camera version ~$90
    - PS4 Move Controllers Twin-Pack ~$120 (unless you have 1 or 2 ps3 move controllers, as they're the same controller). You can get away with 1 move controller but some games (such as Batman: Arkham) use 2




    Racing Games
    I've been asked what Racing Games are on the PS VR.

    - Driveclub VR is available.

    - Project Cars is not.

    - Gran Turismo Sport is not.

    - Dirt Rally VR was just released the other day (it's under $20 if you already own Dirt Rally). I've only tried Rally X and Hill Climb modes atm and they are unbelievable in VR!!! Pikes Peak is kicking my a$$! For those into Pikes Peak, you're able to drive Pikes Peak either using Ari Vatanens Peugeot 405 T16 Pikes Peak (Climb Dance anyone?) or Sebastien Loeb's Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak cars!

    If you have a racing rig... OMG!!

    No other racing games are out... yet...




    3D Bluray Movie Playback in VR
    Beta Testers are testing future firmware update 4.50 which will add 3d Bluray movie playback in the VR in Cinema mode if you have old 3D bluray movies lying around gathering dust





    Screen Drift
    There's a bit of an issue with the PS VR where the screen drifts to the left and you have to constantly re-calibrate to get back to centre.

    Sony haven't taken ownership and people are hoping they do and fix it through a firmware update, but in the mean time apparently the fix so far is to try this: https://www.reddit.com/r/PSVR/commen...WM&sh=1aede465

    My local JB hifi are selling the camera for $39 now.
    Am still after the move controllers, I refuse to pay $120 for the PS4 move controllers!

    I haven't noticed the screen drift issue but admittedly have only spent an hour or so playing VR since I got it. The only game I have so far is until dawn rise of blood. Will be getting resident evil very shortly

    You may have your camera set up PERFECTLY if it doesn't happen to you.

    My Son has all the above, and I have tried some of the demo VR games etc.

    WOW.... simply wow.
    The sample disc that came with it was immersive.

    If you really want to get immersive, if you haven't already, download from the store the free version of Joshua Bell recording a violin performance recorded with a Sony 360 deg camera. It's pretty sweet.

    https://www.engadget.com/2017/02/14/...c-performance/

    If only we could get 360 deg recorded movies (other than pRon which isn't available on PS)...

    Do any bands record their shows in 360 deg yet? I remember watching at a mates house (I think it was either Beastie Boys or Metallica) their show was recorded with different camera views so you could switch cameras while watching it. I think I have a Jamiroquai concert recorded that way too. 360 would be sweet!!!

    Edit: not what I meant but it's a start: http://www.gamespot.com/articles/psv.../1100-6447115/

    Hmm. Tried the YouTube vr vids. Not a fan. Beside the 4k vids looking like dial up quality (but that could be cause I didn't have time to play with any video quality settings if there are any), what I disliked the most is that all the videos weren't recorded in the right perspective. Anything close to you made you feel like you're an ant looking up. The Joshua Bell recording I mentioned above was filmed in proper proportions.
