Yes it's annoying. I use the HDMI Coupler method when not using VR and quickly forget about the problems.

Speaking of 'biting point' I'm playing Resident Evil on it at the moment.

It's scaring the living sh*te out of me. You won't be disappointed!

​Just bought a new 4K HDR TV and have run into this issue.

What a stupid oversight by Sony.

Might sell my VR and wait for a improved model

still no good games And there doesn't seem to be a lot coming out anymore...

Seems like VR is to gaming what 3D is to TV. Pointless and will be dropped as a flop.

VR is great but its just too low resolution, you really need 4k per eye at 90fps and the latest games to really get immersed. Seeing as the very latest most expensive gaming graphics card cant handle a single eye at 4k/60fps, we will be waiting at least ten years until this become to the average consumer at anything near a reasonable price.

always seemed extremely likely. accessories like this are ALWAYS poorly supported. Why design a game for the tiny amount of people who own one when you could build for a console thats popular?

I've ignored this gadget as a novelty item and nothing more. Technology is not ready and it's more an experiment to test consumer interest.

Nothing wrong with either tech. It's all the negativity from people like you that puts off other people from purchasing and expanding the user base.

Both 3D and VR just need to naturally progress and improve over the next 10 years and they'll be exceptional experiences. But both are already perfectly enjoyable right now.

​I find it very strange that they don't just duplicate the image over, rather than rendering two separate images...it would be much less taxing on the CPU, and we could all be enjoying much better graphics too.

If they made PC drivers it would be worth it.

One problem with this Glorified Electric Hat *tm* is that it doesn't come with those glow-in-the-dark maracas type things, that people use as controllers (perfect for an ice cream simulator). You gotta pay more for the cyber-maracas. Next they'll be fitting folk for robo-boots.

No need, you just need an hdmi splitter and an hdmi switch.

Split the hdmi signal that comes from the PS4, before it goes in to the PSVR and send one hdmi to the hdmi switch at the tv end, then send the other to the PSVR. Then take the output from the PSVR and put that in the second input on the hdmi switch and connect the switch to your tv. Now, when you want to play HDR games then you can bypass the PSVR box completely by viewing through input 1 on the hdmi switch, when you use the PSVR you can flick to input two.

Admittedly, it's a bit of a faff and you need to get a splitter and switch that supports 4K HDR (and 3D if you also have a 3D TV), but it's a workaround you can do for around £20 or less.

3D TVs were made for well over 5 years and 3D blu rays are still available for every major new release, not exactly a flop.

Not true at all. Immersion has nothing to do with resolution. PSVR games are certainly low resolution, but the likes of Kitchen, Rush of Blood and Resident Evil 7 prove immersion is fully creatable with the tech available. Sure, it would be even better if it was high res, but not essential for immersion.

VR is true 3D, so it needs two separate images to be rendered. It would just be flat 360 video otherwise and that would suck.

Ah sod bought one hopefully they start bringing more games out later

In the meantime, Rush of Blood is a tenner on the store at the moment.

Hot but can see it dropping more as not sold as well as they thought

Highly recommend Rez Infinite!

Wrong. Andrew House said their internal forecast was 1 million units sold by mid-April (to the New York Times), it was less than 80000 units away from that forecast by late February.

Had a go for the first time the other day, I can see that VR is definitely the future, but just look how few big games are available on all of the high end VR devices. The likes of EA, Take Two, Ubisoft etc aren't designing any AAA titles yet. I agree that it is really to test consumer interest at this point, like the original eye toy for PS2 did for motion gaming.

There are worse ways of spending £300+, it is quite interesting and fun, but if you don't have much money then I wouldn't bother. Lower tech VR will probably get big first in the next 5 years on smartphones, tablets and possibly the Nintendo Switch. High end VR like Vive, Oculus Rift, PSVR, Hololens will be big in 10 years. The possibilities are amazing, imagine starring in your favorite movies as the character themselves, it will be fantastic eventually.
Though I do worry about the Psychological consequences, especially combining VR, Mixed VR, Augmented Geo Location Reality and social media...

They also predicted no stock worldwide shortage never happened I will bite in 6 months but still goin way of 3D TVs Kinect etc never going to appeal to casual gamer but means cheaper for me x

I think the VR will fall flat on its backside. Not many games out and far too expensive for many people to go out and buy. It will go down the same route as 3D TV

You would lose the 3D, which require two slightly different camera angles.

The 3D aspect of VR is pretty much its cornerstone.

Cheers. I believe to complete your setup, you'd need to make sure the VR box is completely OFF...as if it is powered, the PS4 knows and still downgrades the signal, regardless of whether your on input 1 or not? But yes, not a huge deal...put the VR in a switched socket or better, on a remote clicker.

Not sure about a HDR 4K Switch and Splitter though for £20...can you recommend any? Ones that are confirmed to work seem much more expensive.

Can you link me to a switch that does 4k HDCP 2.2 (needed for HDR)? All the ones that claim they do 4k do this at HDCP 1.4 which is exactly what PSVR does....

I've tried about 3 switches

Not to mention the tech being developed that tracks your eye movement and only optimises resolution in the part of the screen you're focusing on. It's a bit like in the new AMD graphics chips where 3D objects hidden behind other 3D objects don't get rendered, thereby saving the GPU for visible objects only.
