I am tempted but I also think the price is still very high. I mean Skyrim is how old? Yes it's the VR version but surely that could be DLC or even free DLC for owners of the game? At least Doom VFR is around the £15 mark

Agree, I bought it at full rice on Xbox and PC. Will wait for the price to drop significantly before buying. Pleased that they’ve supported Oculus but could have priced it more reasonably or released it as an add-on for those that already own the non-VR version
It might be the same game, but it is a totally different experience in VR.

I've put hundreds of hours into Skyrim on the Xbox 360, then again on the PS4. But I've still put another 70 hours into the PSVR version, and am nowhere near finishing it.

To expect it for free is a bit ridiculous but I understand the point about a discount for existing buyers. The problem I guess is that you can get the original for a fiver anyway so the discount would be negligible.

This is AAA game for VR though so I'm happy! Precious few of those on PC at the mo
From what I've seen, it's basically the same game as the normal Skyrim, just first person VR. So... my point is, if an user can create a mod and offer it for free, why are they charging so much for such an old game? It's not like they've got a new skyrim story or anything.

Doom VFR is less money but is a unique game to Doom. Not just a port of the original... yet they charge £12 to £20.
Like @gb1999 said, it's supply and demand. Not many AAA VR titles out there so they can get away with it for now.

VR finds itself in a strange position. Players demand AAA games, but due to the limited player base, developers are reluctant to throw a tonne of money behind a game that wont sell that well.

The obvious solution is to either get a big company to finance them ( a la facebook), who will develop games at a loss with an aim to attract further headset purchases, or develop older games for VR.

If this works out for bethseda, we may see more developers retrofitting games for VR, which in turn will see more people interested in getting headsets. Eventually, there will be a big enough market for developers to make new VR AAA games.

So it stings to pay for skyrim yet again, I have now purchased my 5th copy of Skyrim, and I am happy to support further VR development. I guess the alternative is cheap, short, indie games that wont keep me interested for long. I paid about 30 for a bunch of VR games that had avout 4-6 hours play time. 1.99 more for an older game with hundreds of hours of gameplay? That sounds like a bargain.
Wow Facebook bankrolling developers to make VR games... That's an interesting idea....

This sums up my views as well. Normally I won't spend more than a tenner for a PC game, and will happily wait a couple of years for it to drop in price. But as I love VR I'm happy to pay more in the hope it really catches on and eventually delivers outstanding original content that is on the scale of games like this.

Do Facebook have a bad history with that or something?

They do own the Oculus Rift, so it wouldn't be out of this world for this to happen.

Of course then everything they make would be 'Oculus Exclusive'.

I played 61 hours of Subnautica, all in VR. Why wouldn't you? It's a far better and more immersive experience than playing on a screen. I'll be doing a full playthrough of Skyrim in VR too.

Seems like a novelty to me in it's current state. But hey, props to those putting the hours in lol

Have you tried VR in its current state?
It is very good for early generation stuff.

I have no problem spending hours in Skyrim in VR.

They have tried do that and they have been exclusives... They haven't produced anything of real quality..which can be said for VR in general..

I do love my VR but at the minute it's really just a £1500 Guncon.

I mean don't Sony and Microsoft give huge incentives to developers to make games for systems before they're even out so they can be released on the console launch? Doesn't make too much sense to make a Playstation game when only 2 million playstations are sold when you can wait a year and release it when there are 20 million playstation owners to sell to. Facebook paying devs might be similar so they can sell more headsets. I guess It actually makes less sense for Facebook to do it though since they don't get a cut for all game sales like sony and microsoft does, for most VR games it'll be Steam taking the cut for doing almost nothing these days.

Oculus only sell these exclusives on the Oculus Store .. Wilson's Heart, Robo Recall etc... (you get it free with touch)

They have tried and failed, Sony have too, VR in it's current incarnation is not going to be mainstream... and I'm it's biggest fan
This is still janky but it's fantastic. A lot of special edition mods seem to be working already as well.

Where is the free VR mod for Skyrim VR? Vorpx has a commercial implementation that is of much lower quality. Bethesda are one of the only AAA developers that has put the time and resources into both building new games and porting existing titles into VR. Time they could have spent on more profitable projects. VR is still early tech and that always comes at a premium. They are clearly learning as they go as although it's not without issues Skyrim VR works far better than Fallout 4 VR and Doom VFR did at launch.

I'm holding out for Skyrim: Toaster Edition
great deal, very happy they seemd to have made a brilliant vr port. I've bought too many games in the oculus sale to get this now but will definitely pick it up at some point

Thought as much. All I'm saying is - that doesn't exactly put you in a great position to judge whether VR is a novelty or not, versus people who have used it for 100+ hours.

try lone echo, elite dangerous and pCARS2 in vr then you will be in a position of authority to judge... (possibly skyrim vr too but i have not played it yet.........)

some game genres once you play in vr there is no going back.
