    Seen a few articles stating April release

    The few videos I've seen look awesome

    I think this tool has so many possibilities ...I could climb the Eiffel Tower ...swim the English Channel

    Ride stages of the Tour de France ........visit space

    I saw a demo of the walk where a guy you walk across tight rope Between buildings



    This was based on the film of the true story that's being released as a movie.....

    I'm in the very very excited camp about this technology, games and other possibilities that it has.

    I wonder if you're wearing the VR headset will other people be able to see what you're seeing in the TV

    Mooted prices are around $500 bucks. Will start building up my PayPal now!

    I could even see the possibility of people with anxiety and depression being able to use to overcome these conditions by creating worlds that can tackle these conditions and illnesses.

    Exciting times indeed.

    Do you ever check to see if a thread was already existing or do you just default to start a thread every time you post?

    you'd think microsoft will have something as similar and/or better in the pipeline.

    i remember seeing some video several years ago of MS showcasing VR for the xbox

    Doesn't look like gaming is the prime function of it though?

    Gaming is part of it. They briefly touched on that. But it would be part of it. Not just VR, but VR brought off the screen into the living room itself as hologram. No plugs and wires. Etc.

    It's ok, it was an error on my end (browser not showing the video). All good now.

    On the topic of VR and gaming itself.

    I wonder if it'll really ever take off tho. This has been tried before countless times by other gaming systems and all failed.

    Same with the wii in a way, and kinect and move, etc. It's just too gimmicky or impractical to be a staple.

    If there's a REAL future in this, I'd actually think MS's hololens has the idea -- ie, Star Trek's holographic combat/simulation room. Holograms > VR imo.

    You are the last post in the other thread which pretty much became a PSVR specific thread.

    Hololens is AR not VR. and Hololens only has a FoV of a 15inch monitor from 2ft away, and its battery life is worse then the DS4
    Someone on Neogaf measured what the FoV would be like and its this
    [​IMG]

    Not this Bullshit MS showed last year[​IMG]



    Ill get the PS:VR if the price kits that were leaked are correct with a bundle [PSVR, PS4 Camera and 2 Move remotes] $428US and the PSVR alone for $299US

    it needs both the PS4 Camera and move remotes to use, But i have both so i would only need the PSVR

    Yeah to be honest the Hololens looks like a POS and couldn't see much commercial success with it.

    I think it looks interesting but I don't see it being a thing for 10+ years

    Yea the Hololens has soooooooooooo much potential, it is a fair way off and I think it will leave vr in its skid marks soon enough.

    I sold my move controllers with my PS3

    But these can be had cheaply from eBay, I already have the camera so I will just get the head set

    I already have $250 neatly tucked away in my PayPal account .....So will be good to go when it's released

    I personally think it will revolutionise gaming
