Any ideas on watching on PSVR ? Is this possible ?


Apparantly an app is expected to be released at some point today for PSVR - keep an eye out! ;-)
App is live on the oculus go as well. No content to test though have to wait for a game

Today’s game is on ITV the app is for BBC games.
Will I be able to see what inside the refs head after yet another bad decision?
Am I missing something? Is this just a gimmick?
Headache material just watch it on the tv

Headache material just watch it on the tv


I was in a local shopping centre with my niece just before Christmas, and there was a a VR exhibition in the middle of one of the walkways. Anyway, I paid for both of us to have a go, and I have to say it was one of the worst experiences I've ever had. It was hot, sweaty and causing my head to seemingly want to explode. I lasted until the end and felt ill (I'd only been wearing it for 10 minutes). My niece was already waiting for me. She lasted about 6 minutes before she too felt ill.

IMO, these things are just a gimmick. Unless technology improves to the point where these are headache free and don't cause the wearer to feel like their head is on fire, I won't be joining the VR crowd. Personally I think this will go down the way that 3D did.
Dear god why. I'll leave it until they strap a go pro to each player

Not surprising. If they're not setup correctly you would feel very ill after a short time. I had motion sickness for 48 hours after using the DK1 oculus rift because I never set it up. I never made that mistake again.
Can't see the point in VR for a football match but VR works amazingly well for some games like sim racing.

Which VR headset and game did you try
I own a Oculus rift CV1 I don't get any headaches
Its only gets hot when you move around too much

Maybe they didn't set it up correctly or was using a old headset?

Unless I can watch it like if I was in the stands, I don’t care

PSVR app here. Enjoy!



Strangely the HUKD thread that mentions only the PSVR app is hotter then this thread for all the ops.

Sounds pretty grim, I can appreciate why you'd walk away with that opinion. You'd likely find it a more pleasant experience using your own HMD in a home environment.

Sweating is an issue in particularly active games (e.g. Audioshield, Beat Saber, Box VR) but in many titles I can easily spend upwards of 6 hours without discomfort.

I don't think it will go the same way as 3D as the interactivity and immersion is already so far beyond what is possible with a traditional display. I'm very positive about the future of VR and It should gain new fans as the technology evolves and improves.
