Tetris Effect doing a free demo on PS4 right now.  I guess if you didn't play Tetris to death in 1989 it's cool, I don't think it's a $30 game by any stretch of the imagination.

This forum needs more threads about Arcade 1Up cabinets.

I just started playing around with the player made sons and level designs in Beat Saber, witch has put so much more life into the game. I feel  a lot are even better than the ones that came with the game.

Rick & Morty - Get Swifty is a great example

Pure Imagination was great level design.

Gillette has a good beat and flow.

It's pretty easy all you do is download an app and inside the game if gives you an option to instantly download hundreds of different songs and maps. Sorry PSVR

No, if they can make a cardboard controllers that go around your feet and hands where you play as a robot destroying a city than there is no reason they can't also throw together a google cardboard and some crappy games.

Nintendo will get into VR when the technology is cheap and light enough. They will then produce their own headset that is way less powerful than everyone else's; but that's ok because  they will make there own Astro Bot like games with Mario and everyone will buy it. Until then Nintendo is not touching VR.

Did you look at the link?  Nintendo IS doing VR... it'll be released before Easter I believe. 

Now it's a labo kit, so atm we don't know if it'll be just a specific game or if they'll start adding support for additional games.  VR code was found in the last system update so that makes me hopeful that it'll be more than just a labo one off.

That's not VR, that is a VR hack. Google cardboard came out within like 3 month of the DK1. Nintendo decided they want to go into the cardboard game so why it has taken this long to come out with the oldest cardboard trick that you can do with a phone tablet is the real question.

It's not a hack at all.  Comes with lenses like google cardboard so it's not a hack.  You might not like it, but it's not a hack. 

It's taken them so long because, unlike other companies they understand that the software is the most important part.

My point was that Casto was so against it, calling it a gimmick and yet even Nintendo is dipping their toes. VR is the FUTURE baby!

Beat Saber looks so ---fracking--- dumb.  I say this as someone with commercial DDR pads.

Have yet to have anyone over to try VR that does not love Beat Saber; young, old, man or woman. It also plays really well never dropping below 90 FPS.

My daughter and I have spent countless hours questing together in rec room.  I guess it's not really countless; I just fired up Oculus on my laptop and it says I've played 104 hours on there.  Anyway, it hasn't gotten old yet...

VR is a blast.  I've been working on writing a minigame for VR -- first person game where you pilot a paper airplane around shooting paperclips at stuff.  If I ever get it to a reasonably playable level I'll just drop it out there for free.

Looks like the long-rumored Valve VR headset is going to be a thing: https://store.steampowered.com/sale/valve_index/

Given the disappointment around the recent Rift S announcement, one hopes this one will be more promising.

I have given up all hope on humanity. No but a part of me thinks the rift and vive came out before their time. Especially the vive, I mean do you remember what it was like getting the full motion control room scale right out of the box having never seen anything like it before and it all worked pretty flawlessly, just requiring the best graphics card on the market. They have just been  trying to make it more accessible, less cost, and less friction for everyone else to get into it ever since.

I think foveated rendering technology is the key to move onto stage two of VR. It will allow less powerful hardware to render bigger scenes. Until that gets locked down it will just be a lot of spinning wheels with these HANDs that come out.

Their real website isnít working, but I saw a demo of these on Wednesday.

https://www.linkedin.com/company/fluiditytech/

They think itíll be huge for VR control.  Reminds me of that crummy 3rd party Epyx controller that every system in the 80s had.  Anyway, always neat to see an astronaut.

 :cheers:

No Man's Sky getting a free VR update

https://www.theverge.com/2019/4/2/18285578/no-mans-sky-vr-preview-sean-murray-interview

I paid like $10 for this game right after they did the big update.  Didn't seem like a whole lot of game there.
