VR porn is a real game changer.

Once i adjusted it to the middle, everything looked good.

This is my first experience with VR, and I must say, I really like it. Love how immersive it makes the games.
Careful with glasses, people have scratched the lenses when they bring the unit to close to the face. There's some 3rd parties making bumpers that fit inside to protect the lenses from hitting glasses.

Try the Driveclub demo and make sure you want it first. It has blurry/poor graphics.

Dirt VR edition just came out and is reportedly a much better VR racing game. On sale @ Playstation Store until tmw.

Dirt VR is his gateway drug. It's why he's looking for Drive Club I think.

Dirt is awesome but man is it ever a challenge. I like it, but wow.

Yeah, I thought about it while it's on sale but I don't have the time, space, or money to devote to building a racing rig right now - which I think it needs to do it justice. Needs seat, force feedback wheel, pedals, shifter, etc. Maybe when Gran Turismo Sport VR comes out (but hopefully its not just a tacked on DLC portion).

Yeah, as Russ stated dirt rally was the gateway, now just looking for more and more. Driveclub is a bit easier and I am pretty awful so hoping to start there haha

One of many who is too boring; thinks that there should be rules regarding grammar in custom user titles, and also makes moderators wonder if there is a charachter limit here. I mean come on- you would think that would be a limitation in the software

From my experience, Dirt Rally does an exceptional job of preventing instances where significant nausea would occur

Sadly, I haven't touched my VR since it came out.

I had left mine alone for a while, but currently playing Mervils. Cheesy as hell zelda-style adventure game.

So this thread has not been bumped in awhile. Following Resident Evil 7, I have not jumped into VR for awhile.

Curious if anyone has picked up Robinson, Star Trek or any of the new releases.

Star Trek is not released yet.

I watched Gravity 3D Blu Ray last night in bed with PSVR. I use it as a bedroom TV more than for the VR functionality but that was actually the main reason I justified it to myself for purchase in the first place because I could save the $500 I would spend for a TV and mount, etc. otherwise.

The upgrade to the visuals in cinema mode with the last update is awesome. For somebody like me that isn't a resolution savant, it's perfect. A modest quality bump is all I wanted.

Ya, May has Star Trek and Farpoint coming out now. I've already got my Farpoint preorder in because I just felt I needed something new to clutter up my basement and annoy my wife with.
