I just came back from Gamestop – tested the PS4 VR system.
#1 The games were very immersive. Unfortunately, you MUST be seated and every game basically feels like a rail shooter.
#2 Getting the fit of the headset just right took a little bit – and even then – if your face touches the display, you must wipe it with a microfiber cloth (included) because it will be incredibly blurry.
#3 I played a total of 10 minutes and my SINUSES ARE KILLING ME.
The motion sickness came and went, but my SINUSES ARE FKKKKKIN KILLING ME suddenly.
#4 $400 for the barebones system + $50 for the camera + MORE MONEY for the MOVE controllers…
I didn’t like the MOVE controllers because they feel totally unnatural.
As for the games – specifically Valkyrie – I was immediately reminded of Colony Wars – only with 1080p graphics and a whole lot of stuff going on in the background. Unfortunately, it was kind of hard to enjoy the experience because the PS4 controller didn’t feel immersive enough. I’d have preffered to be able to play with my Playstation Dual Analog Flight Stick… but that’s obviously not going to happen.
I really think I’d rather play with VR on flight simulators with my SAITEK HOTAS setup.
But because I need to see my hands – I’d be better off just using my monitor setup and my home-made cockpit.
