Found 29th Dec 2016
Ours got an hours use xmas day, same Boxing Day and not at all since, so has been sold to cex for £365. My son was blown away by it at a demo event, but announced he didn't think he would use it enough with the current games available to justify the cost. Plus neither his Dad or myself could even complete a lap of Driveclub due to motion sickness.
How did you get on?

no vr sickness for me, I'm keeping mine, glad the price of games has gotten reasonable.

Virtual reality is still just a novelty at the moment. It's going to take a long time before it is a comfortable experience. My brain feels like it's going to explode after about 15 minutes.

You.ll be able to buy it back for peanuts in 6 months time

youve only had it 5 days lol

ive had mine since realease! i probalay spend 5 hours a week on it atm,

fantastic experience, loads of great little games to play - its all about the future with psvr!!

resident evil 7? in vr? yes please!

It is a comfortable experience, and yes its early days.

the potential for vr is insane, and not just from a gaming point of view!

The potential is always going to be huge. The same for any technology at the moment however it is definitely not a comfortable experience for the majority. There is a few people I know who can last maybe an hour at a time comfortably. It is way off its potential in my opinion as it stands. For the price tag it's an expensive novelty at the moment (again in my opinion).

I bought one for my 12 year old daughter for xmas - she felt a bit queasy after 20 mins on her first go but since then she has been fine. My other 8 year old daughter has played it regularly and has not had any sickness issues.
We all think its stunning (myself included) - it can only get better as more bigger software houses release games imo.
I recommend playing kids playing the cat and mouse game on playroom VR as mine love it.
Overall I think it's worth the money and glad I got it for her.

And there are numerous health warnings against kids under 12/14 using these oO I take it you know better than the health experts and doctors- even the warnings on the manufacturers website (and presumably in the instructions ) ? Have to admit I don't .

Yer i full agree with you, 1 of the reasons psvr is doing so well though is because of its cheap price point into vr.

Really - so what? Age restrictions are subject to your own discretion and I decided they could use it - you can wrap your kids in cotton wool if that's your decision.

I'm not a brain surgeon but it was their professional body that warned against developing brains being subjected to this form of VR . Don't believe me - Google it and make your own belated decision .

Thanks for the opinions. I think what my son missed most was having his mates to yawp at while playing a game. Maybe he will fare better next time around if some of his friends have also picked one up.

Thanks for the warning but I did read before I bought it and made my decision. It's just companies covering themselves imo

I would like to sleep with them on

Each to their own ive given my kids a shot of vt but i wouldnt let them play it for prolonged periods as i think theyd get dizzy but theyre only wee

I've been very impressed.
Batman was my fav although a little short, but OK for the price.
I found 'the Kitchen' demo as a great way show-off the PSVR to friends/family.

Overall, it's a great device, although expensive to get all the stuff you need, ie camera and Move controllers.
At the moment, it's the same as when a new console comes out, not that much to get stuck into.
I'm waiting for Resident Evil 7 as the main 'big' game for VR. After that, it will depend on if the support keeps up. That's what will decide if it makes it big or just a fad. The potential is definitely there though.

I remember VR setups 20 years ago. Feeling ancient!

I will wait for V2 to come out then buy V1 at cut price

Just checked cex and cash buying price has dropped to £325 from yesterday's £365.

Like a lead balloon.
