US hardware, US plug sockets. HMMM cold


Are you for real? adaptors are £2 at the most.
What is going on with some of these comments? Allow me to shed some light on a few things:

1. Amazon Global Shipping program means you prepay the import charges, Amazon state that if import fees are higher, THEY WILL PAY THE DIFFERENCE. This means the price you pay at checkout is the total you pay including all import fees. Amazon also state that if the import charges are less they will refund the difference to you, though I do not know if this has happened for anyone yet, this is an added bonus.
2. The reason this is being cold voted has nothing to do with people not understanding the Global Shipping program, it is almost certainly because it was only £200 to buy exactly the same way two weeks ago. Plus the deal on eBay yesterday for the UK v2 (without GT Sport) for only £224. I do not know anyone with a time machine myself but if you do, then go for one of those.
3. My understanding about the mains lead is it is a 100-240V with a figure-8 mains input, so it is as simple as using either a US-UK socket adapter or swapping the figure-8 lead with a UK version, which means likely cost to 99% of people is zero to adapt this, but for those who need to buy one, definitely doable for under £1.

I for one bought a PSVR in the eBay 20% off discount the other day. (After carefully thinking about it all we were saving is VAT really ) but I bought one solely for Resident Evil 7 and Skyrim (will be my third different version/edition of Skyrim I’ll own too haha)
PSVR is, unless you have an amazing/powerful pc to use a Vive or a Hive with, the most logical choice for an entry level VR gaming.

I for one can not wait to scare myself playing Resi and shoot some arrows at some dragons!!

Shame the technology uptake failed and Sony will probably abandon it!

oh dear. Is 1.5million sales and 500million dollars of hardware sales alone not enough?
If you say so. Still gonna get cold. Wouldn't trust customs either, could say the same about your name. Are you for real.

I don’t think you understand how Amazon’s customs deposit scheme works, it’s designed to make the customs process easier, it’s more likely you’ll receive a refund if anything.

Joey Deacon had a profound and positive impact on me, my work, and the people I work with in academia. What is your point?
Well maybe, but I wouldn't put it as my user name as other people may find it insulting.
I'm not the only one that sees it as cold and possibly for the same reasons.

Judging by the severe lack of games and that most of the available games are just “experiences” then yes.

Check out some online articles and Youtube videos about the subject, not just my thoughts.

If you think “big” sales numbers mean its a surefire hit, please feel free to research the Sega Dreamcast which sold a total of 10.6 million units worldwide. It had a generally bad selection of games and was dropped overnight by Sega like the proverbial Hot Potato. Alternatively lets talk the “next big thing” and remember the X-Box kinect...

Numbers mean nothing, if the company dont want to support it, they wont. Ironically big sales numbers just show they already have your money so they dont need to keep pandering to your future needs or requirements.

Thanks for this, yes I think far too often people vote cold based on historical pricing. As you say, the eBay deal has gone. I have received a customs deposit refund from Amazon twice before, amounted to a few pounds in both cases (both occasions imported gaming hardware).

Oh well, it looks like the lurkers almost snapped them up.

It's a great piece of kit and the lowest price at the moment but haven't voted either way as I got the same bundle a few weeks ago for £60 less
Good price.

There's some pretty uninformed comments on here, what happened to checking facts before you post? You're just gonna make yourself look stupid.
Sex toys
This will be 199.99 by the summer due to lack of sales so far.

'However, thanks to a ‘Black Friday’ deal from Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe (SIEE), the PlayStation VR has now become the number 1 selling product on Amazon in the UK.
This chart-topping success isn’t restricted to Amazon’s ‘PC & Video Games’ category, but the site-wide sales charts governing all products available via the online retailer.
Today’s launch of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR has been met with a rapturous response from the PlayStation VR community also, with the retail edition currently sitting in sixth place on Amazon’s PC & Video Games sales chart.'

A strange definition of the 'uptake failing'.

Heat form me. Looks good. My friend just bought everything psvr and speaks very highly of it. I'd like to try it for myself. Agree with some of the comments above. VR is indeed the next evolutionary step in gaming. While it can't be applied to all gaming yet it's certainly coming on leaps and bounds! I can't wait for the next itiration of VR!

I've been around long enough to remember the Dreamcast. It was actually Sega's arrogance with the Saturn and it's pricing strategy that pretty much killed off their hardware division. Dreamcast had, and still does, have a massive selection of amazing games.

You say that numbers mean nothing, but that's in response to you saying it's not been well adopted. So which is it?

I've had Ps Vr since day 1. It reinvented gaming for me which was becoming stale. It has a very good selection of games now, many are short but that was intentional as Sony / Devs didn't think people would / could spend hours in the headset. Resident evil, farpoint, dirty rally and Skyrim proved them wrong.

It's clearly not for you, but don't make nonsense up just to rubbish something you're not interested in.

Unfortunately this was only the case due to the massive discount involved. It no longer occupies any form of top selling position. Discount any product enough and it can achieve similar sales status.

PSVR has failed, numerous online reputable sources support this.

I'm holding off buying until PSVR-X is out in June 2018, that's going to be a game changer.

There's no such thing as a PSVR-X, even if it was a real thing it wouldn't come out in 6 months time.

You said "Shame the technology uptake failed"

The actual data shows otherwise. It was number one until they ran out of stock. The lower price was obviously the sweet spot for a lot of people. The same happens with pretty much any 'new' technology.

Maybe you regard 2 million sales in a year as failing, I don't, though I'd like to see a link to the numerous reputable sources that state this.

How do you know the 'PS VR-X' is out in June 2018?

There's over 2 million psvr units already sold and the platform is supported, to me it's about cross platform gaming with Hive and Oculas Rift users where everybody wins and this is the direction it's headed, on the store there are 161 games and 24 experiences which clearly shows that there are more games than experiences.

Sony has been making and marketing head mounted displays for years with three version of their HMZ head mounted TV displays before the PSVR so to say Sony wont support it when they have a known track record is a bit of a mute point. Let's agree to disagree.
