Heat added, great deal biddy X)
Don't but one! You'll be sick!
I've seen someone use one of these on their PC for Elite, looked great.
Does this come with the 500gb or 1tb PS4?
Going the same way as 3D TVs??

Because Argos choose to do a 10% off £30 minimum spend promotion code across the whole Argos eBay store? No, I don't think this means that at all. X)

I'd view this more as an alternative to a telly. It's still a bit above what I'm willing to pay mind.
Verry good buy! HOT
3D is unlikely to be around for much longer. I can't say I have used it very much on my TV, price of 3D blu rays generally too high. It's never been up to the level of 3D that I saw at Disneyworld 10 years+ ago. Until someone can come up with 3D that doesn't require ridiculous looking glasses it is never going to be mainstream.

Well 4K will die too then as they cost more than a 3D Bluray.

3D is fine on my tv though for what it is worth. I've heard great things about PSVR with 3D blurays too.

However, this headset really shines with the games.

Weird how it costs more than the console that it needs to run it.

Not when you look into how much the headsets cost on PC it isn't. Also, Samsung Gear VR with a Galaxy s7 costs just as much as this but isn't as good. If anything, PSVR is the cheapest even with the console price factored in.

​the have but that requires you to sit in the exact right spot which is even worse. I don't mind the glasses. I bought this in release day I have used it for about 40 hours in total still amazing and really cool to play around with I am just waiting for a real rpg to be released.

I think the problem is that the 3d we get now (outside of VR) in cinema and Tv is more like a box 3d it does not jump out the tv and cinema screen and that is the 3d that people want now it's more like a tunnel 3d which gets boring after a while and doesn't add the the experience

​4k will die eventually when 8k comes out. 3D is dying, 4k is on the up at the moment as the TVs that cost thousands a couple of years ago can now be bought for hundreds. The 4k Blu rays will have to be reduced in price eventually but at the moment they are just too expensive for most people.

Very good! But I think your real eye was caused watching too many films like this:

https://images-eu.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/519t+0a20wL._AC_US218_.jpg


even though I'm a PS4 owner I have zero knowledge about the vr side of things.
is this compatible with standard PS4? do all PS4 games work on it? cod etc...
is it basically like playing games on a huge TV?
how are the controls mechanisms & what space range does it require?
apologies for all the questions but i fancy a new gadget and want to make sure it's justified.

Although it may seem expensive, it's still currently the cheapest VR experience you can get for gaming by a country mile when you compare it to the Oculus or the Vive.

It's great that for the SRP of £350 the PSVR comes supplied with a pair of VR controllers and the required camera just like Oculus Rift and HTC Vive do. Oh, wait...

​It is a matter of opinion. My mate has VR and it is enjoyable. Played Res evil and that was good. But i personally don't think it is worth £300+. But just an opinion and I am cheap. Bought the ps4 when it was £180 hehe

Aren't those sets around £500 though? Add to that the need to have a suitably high-powered PC, surely the PSVR option offers better value once you've added everything up.

It is compatible with the standard PS4. You will need to buy a Playstation 4 camera on top of this mind. (Around £40ish). There are games specifically made for it.

I think you can play non VR games on it in cinema mode to simulate a bigger screen but I personally wouldn't bother as it does have a lower resolution compared to your TV output. However, you can watch 3D blurays through this so that's one benefit.

The way it works is you feel like you are actually inside the game. Things are literally right in front of you on VR games. On Until Dawn VR for example, I had pig carcasses hanging in front of me and it feels like they will hit you.

A lot of games work using your standard PS4 controller but some require the purchase of the Playstation move controllers. Most work well without those though.

You don't need the amount of floor space that Kinect would require for example, but do make sure you have some room as you will need to move around (basically turning around not jumping around like a prat X) ). Hope that helps.

I don't own one either. £300 is a bit too expensive for me too, so I get where you are coming from.

You poor sod. Nobody deserves to be put through that. Nobody.

have been eyeing psvr since last year, got payable TCB around 30 quid, please give me a reason not to buy this.. 300quid without controller and camera still expensive for me(cheaper than rift n vive).

This doesn't include the cost of the Playstation camera or the PS motion control wands, either...
JOIN US! Then buy Werewolves Within and never leave VR...
So want but know I'll puke. I've been having trouble with modern FPS games. Couldn't play more than 15 mins of Alien Isolation for example. Real shame.. Tried some fixes but nada, still get motion sickness.
MisterMadHatter

Aren't those sets around £500 though?


Oculus Rift (inc. camera & superflous Xbone controller) & Oculus Touch set = £598 SRP
HTC Vive (inc. 2x camera for true room-scale VR & VR controller set) = £759 SRP
PSVR & old hat PS Move set & generic PS4 camera = £460 SRP when purchased separately.
Impending SteamVR-powered headset from LG = TBA

Add to that the need to have a suitably high-powered PC


You'd be surprised how low a price PC is now required for VR gaming, i.e. it's very far from being the super-expensive uber PC that uninformed people and console brand cheerleaders would have you believe. Suffice to say that a PC will also do much more than any console can so it's not an apples to apples comparison.

If its top quality that you want then, as with most things in life, you pay your money and take your choice. PSVR is an overall good product for its price and when it's, officially or otherwise, able to run on PC then that'll further increase its worth. If Oculus Rift is officially supported by Xbox Scorpio, as many are assuming will be the case, then its worth will also further increase.

surely the PSVR option offers better value once you've added everything … surely the PSVR option offers better value once you've added everything up.


It depends on how one considers it. If you're focusing solely on upfront costs then, yes, PSVR will be cheapest. However, when one factors in the longer term financial commitment then a good chunk of money will be clawed back by PCVR gamers due to the cheaper game prices on PC. Also, if you want the best from PSVR then you'll also need to buy a PS4 Pro.

Then what happens in circa 3 years' time when PS5 arrives because there's absolutely no guarantee from Sony that the PSVR sold today will be compatible with it. That's not an issue with PCVR. So, to respond to your assertion, it depends on what one means by "better value" because there's more to 'value' than price. Value is very much a subjective matter.
