This is the new model, released 24/10/2017

I got the £250 black Friday deal I haven't opened it yet or the game would argos let me take it back and swap out for the new one?

Wonder if these are all the V1s that people hav returned in favour of V2's

That's What I'm thinking

google the EAN 711719952169
Its V1 but it only matters if you are lazy and require HDR passthrough.
Get a V1 and a HDMI splitter

Are you 100% sure? If so, I'll definitely bite.

This is not a new model, even V1 bundle was released the same day, Argos is still selling the old V1 model

Is there a significant difference between V1 & V2? I have the standard PS4

Just picked one.
It's zvr2

Not much, I personally would prefer V1 with a game at £250 rather than this, No visual improvement

This exact one from Argos?

Going to collect mine from Argos tomorrow morning. If it’s not a v2 headset they can keep it - but am encouraged by Chrzan’s post:)

Hi all,

Just picked mine up from Argos, this deal and it’s indeed the new headset CUH-ZVR2. Had the staff take it out the box then realised it was above the HDMI part on the outer box so check it is CUH-ZVR2 before committing/signing for it if delivered:

This should get loads of heat, unfortunately missed out on the £10 voucher for over £100 spend as that ended yesterday! Mine came today!

if it quotes 5 days it may be quicker as mine said 5 days but was ready after like 2 days. Gone for Skyrim VR as to me the best title available and most expensive to buy (£35+)

Mines a pressie from the OH and I am not allowed it until Xmas day!

Excellent deal from Argos as many of us can get up to around 7% off vouchers through employee schemes and there is the Argos card for 12 months BNPL which is good. Heated!

OP I would suggest adding CUH-ZVR2 to the listing as that what makes it a great deal

I'm not sure HDR passthrough and integrated headphones are worth £50 extra.

Yes. You can return within 28 days no questions as long unopened. I took mine back and got a refund then purchased V2 bundle from Smythes.

You will have to return the game which was part of the bundle and i'm not sure if they'd let you have it as part of the new bundle. They may say it needs to be 'returned' and they are out of stock! But maybe they'll be flexible or it will be in stock anyway....hope that makes sense!

And a lighter cable attached to it. And easier to sell on in the future maybe. But notfor everyone I agree.

Depends on your set up for wires I suppose. Also the deals from BF are not available. I don’t think there will be many V1 deals left as most places have probably cleared stock

If I reserve this deal from Argos, will it definitely be a V2?

Tried reserving, says VR available for collection not delivery, Skyrim available for Delivery not collection, fml

I think the V1s have been discountined. It’s highly likely it will be a V2 but check the box for CUH-ZVR2 on the rear of the outer box near where it mentions HDMI

How do these compare to an Oculus Rift? I tried an Oculus this week at a friend's house, no better visually than my GearVR but the hand controller element was cool which the GearVR can't do. The teleport thing instead of walking in games is hopeless though, I guess there's no way to counteract that without people puking. From my testing of the GearVR and Oculus Rift, VR is a cool but very niche product. The immersion is fantastic and I'm sure if my parents tried it they would be amazed, however the games aren't that great yet. Teleporting around whilst playing SkyRim well I'd prefer to just play it 2D and be able to walk about normally. VR has a long way to go yet. I rate it better than 3D but hmm it needs to get a lot better, the resolution needs massively upgrading, I'd say that 4K wouldn't even be good enough, 8K would be a decent starting point, anyway we're quite some way off that for PC gaming currently.

Only certain people get sick when using smooth locomotion in VR. I used smooth locomotion like normal from the start of Resi 7 and didn't feel sick after three hours of playing. Skyrim, Doom VFR, Farpoint etc. can also be played with smooth locomotion.

There's a HMD being developed that has 4K for each eye and 200 degree FOV. 8K isn't that far off :).

Thanks. 8K is really what's required from what I've read on the subject of VR. Also I notice that Kickstarter attempts to solve the peripheral vision issue with VR. So things are going in the right direction.

The DOOM VFR that comes bundled with this is appearing as the HTC Vive version and not the PS4 version? Anyone else seeing that?

Collected earlier today - v2 all round so I’m well pleased. Thanks Argos!

Better cable management,not swapping cables everytime you want to play the vr..better position of the volume and visor adjustment,better padding for the back headrest,so yeah the price is worth it..oh and it's lighter a little bit

I'm still not convinced :). A lighter cable would be nice, though I like where the volume control is on the V1 and having the choice to use different headphones. The padding seems fine to me. I think £20-£30 would be reasonable for me (a bit more than the price of a switch box).

Version 1 in Argos Dudley. Taking it back once the white stuff is off the ground.

Thanks OP. Picked mine up this morning in Newry with a copy of GT Sport. It was the V2 version. Have to wait till christmas to play it tho. Also got a copy of Resident Evil 7 VR for £20.
