Any of you PSVR owners play the WipEout Omega Collection? I am hearing reports that it is the best VR game ever made. Am I going to have to buy a playstation and a PSVR for this?

Yes,  yes and yes.

If you like Wipeout! then imagine actually being in the ship, looking out at all of that colorful futuristic scenery, while traveling at 400+kph.  Loads of tracks and ships, every one playable in VR.  When I first tried it out, it literally sent a chill up my spine. It's that good.  I was even able to set up the racing rig to work with it (with some tweaking and extra hardware.)

PSVR has it's system seller now.

Wipeout is a Playstation exclusive that will never come to the PC will it? This sucks I need to try it. Picking up a PSVR is not really a problem, I can just add it to my HMD collection but having to buy an actual PlayStation is what is not cool.

Wipeout in vr is fantastic.  It also received a permanent price drop recently so now is the time

I bought skyrim pc vr but stopped playing it until the mod stuff calms down.  Looks good and with the right mods people are saying best title so far.

I use VR 90% for simracing only (Project Cars 2, iracing, Dirt Rally, Assetto Corsa). It's mindblowing when you think you're sitting in a car. Of course steeting wheel, pedals and all the stuff is needed for the real imersion.

Wow, two years since I started this thread and it's still going.  So here's my two year VR retrospective: VR is still ---smurfing--- amazing.

Also just got Beat Saber and it totally rocks.

Beat Saber is not really doing it for me. I am just not getting any satisfaction from slicing the boxes, you don't really see it you are just focused on the next ones coming up. I will have to try it more but not really having any fun with it.

I did just buy the Oculus Go.

Oddly enough my one complaint for the game (besides the currently limited number songs) is the opposite.  I find the close boxes obscure further boxes making it harder to figure out what pattern of swings is needed. Makes Expert mode little more than a guessing game.

That said, I find the game is best once you get the patterns down and you start feeling like a jedi slicing everything in perfect time with the music.

How is it?  I've thought about getting a standalone unit to try and have debated between the Go and the Mirage. The latter seems to offer more feature-wise (6DoF vs 3DoF), but reportedly has a more limited software library.

I don't know it will be here tomorrow, it is more just a portable movie/media/porn player. I am hoping the lenses and resolution will be better; they are better but I am hoping it will make a difference. For $200 who gives a shi.. there is literately no reason not to pick one up given the specs and convenience.

That's unfortunate.

I will admit, even with well-developed "VR legs", it's very rough with all the comfort options turned off.  Was it doing this to you, even with the cockpit locked in the up and down orientation and the blinders active?  It's not a great way to experience it, but it should make it much easier to stomach.

I went back to it an hour later and was able to finish a race with the blinders on the small setting, but it was definitely uncomfortable.  I'll try it again with the view locked to cockpit. 

No problems at all with Drive Club.   :dunno

Drive club is such a mess, that it's not surprising.  Wipeout! is greasy-smooth, with a good amount of visual detail, so the immersion level is higher.  If you were playing with the view locked to the ship, I would try turning that off, and removing the blinders.  It's actually easier to play that way, but you feel like you are in a gyro-controlled, auto-leveling ball inside the ship.  The "queasy factor" is also greatly reduced.

First post!

I was lucky enough to try the Oculus dev kit v2 and I was pretty much blown away by the 'presence' of being there. Shame I don't have the stomach for it, any time the camera moved I'd get nauseous :/

I've heard that you can build up a tolerance but I dunno, sometimes when I haven't played an fps in awhile I get the same sort of feeling (some games, not all), it's such a pain as it's one of my favorite genres.

I still want a headset though, to experience one of my fav games ever in VR, Rez!

Yeah you can build up a tolerance to it.
You can also do things to help like eat ginger biscuits or take a motion sickness tablet.

I played Beat Saber for the first time this weekend and I may need to buy a fancy rig and a Vive HTC Pro to play it some more.  Think Guitar Hero but with light Sabers and in VR.  It is insanely fun.  I really hope there is a future with VR games and this isn't a passing fad.

You can actually instal custom sabers, and there is some in the shape that I imagine Mike A wants to hold (personally deleted them)

Anyone that is on the fence about VR system... If you own PS4, Game Stop (and supposedly others) have Skyrim package that includes latest version of the headset, move controllers, camera and of course mentioned Skyrim game for "only" $250 (I know I wish I waited!).

And just to rub it in Howard Casto's face, I'm still using my "gimmick" to this day, well after year of owning. Still considering it the best way to play games. Didn't care too much about Beat Saber, but Fallout 4 in VR is fantastic!

 Well, I couldn’t manage to download any Princess Leia videos and have them work in Littlstar, but I have seen some horrors on YouTube.   Vaginal rejuvenation and “that’s a hemorrhoid, I got that after the baby came.”  All in glorious 3D.

Played some more Wipeout.  I still get drenched in sweat but not queasy.  Even managed 15 minutes of Resident Evil.  I still like Driveclub best.

 :cheers:
