PSVR on the PC
« on: November 26, 2018, 08:51:25 pm »
So, have any of you guys played around with the pc drivers for PSVR?  I'm just trying to get some more info on the device before I dive in.  I know it's a bit of a hack, but I'm just wondering how playable it is.

You need two PS3 cameras.  You get next to no movement for your efforts.  You would be better off with a Samsung VR.  It would be cheaper too.
If I had only one wish, it would be for three more wishes.

I've been tinkering with various VR solutions for a few years now, mostly OSVR (including an elaborate setup using Vive trackers and base stations and open source software cobbling it all together).
When you get a hacked-together solution working it's pretty magical from a technical standpoint, but as soon as you actually want to DO something in VR, the hassle of getting it all configured just right (and then breaking the next time SteamVR updates) makes it feel like it's not worth it.

I picked up a Dell branded Mixed Reality headset earlier this year for around $199 (similar Mixed Reality headsets are on sale near that same price point right now)... and it just works.

Since most of us here on this forum are already probably in the 'build it yourself'/hack it together camp, all these alternative solutions look really attractive, but when it comes to actually USING it, VR is so exhilarating that it's really worth it to just have an out-of-the-box working product.

Hmmm wish we could get some PSVR exclusives on the PC using the Vive

Thanks guys but my intention was never going to be to use a PSVR and a pc as a primary VR method.  I'm probably going to get a PSVR to use on a ps4 and I was wondering if it's serviceable enough to potentially play some indie titles or whatever that aren't released on the ps4.

Used a PSVR a couple times and the resolution was way too low to be effective.
