Really good day one price. Heat added.

Heat for the price, shame Sony won't hurry up and make some more move controllers so people could play the game!

Agreed, it is a bit bonkers. It's been weeks now.

Have this for the Vive. It's pretty much the same as playing squash for me!

Not sure how it'll hold up on the PSVR with the less expansive tracking? I mean, I'm pretty much running side to side when it gets going on the Vive! Good game.

Remains to be seen I guess, Americans seem to like it so far. If it's as good as table tennis on Sports Champions it should be pretty good though.

Yeah. Looked up a couple of reviews and they suggested the tracking was actually not bad in larger areas. Although, they did quantify that by mentioning a couple of dropouts, but only a couple. Which is quite impressive as their tracking method is their weak spot.

You get pretty much zero dropout on a well set up Vive. I have 3m (wide) x 2m (deep) play area and use most of it for this.

Must get round to someone's house with a PSVR so I car try it out. If it warrants it, I'll get it as well as the Vive!

I think pretty much the whole area the camera can see. It's definitely not a game for a small space or for sitting down:

Great game on the vive, one of the first I bought and still go back to play every now and again, well worth the price (if the PSVR tracking holds up!).

Re playspace, on the vive I think its 1.5m by 2m needed to play - the larger your space the harder the game as the computer hits it back to within your playspace.

I don't think it does yet (def didn't last week), but I know they are working on the multiplayer update right now.

I really like this for vive, it's simple but fun, very tron like.

I got this last night and was great fun, I was a sweaty wreck after half hour. I'm in a relatively small room and worked fine for me, I did read you can optimise the room size, but haven't seen the setting myself. I was playing in roughly a 6'x8' space.
