So vr golf anyone? Nice in theory but actually trying to complete a golf swing wearing that unit with all the associated cabling? Think I'll be passing.
I've played Everyday Golf on the Vive which does it extremely well. The Vive headset is so much better than the PS one though admittedly, but it doesn't feel like it gets in the way on there.

Have been on the lookout for a cheap entry into PSVR. Cash Converters came through with a version 2 headset as well. The Move controller pricing just topped off a great bargain hunt.

I still had the official Move charging stand from the PS3 days laying around because EB wouldn't take it.

Wondering whether or not the step up from PS4 to PS4 Pro will have a huge affect on PSVR ?
Anyone done this ?

Never saw the point in upgrading as I don't have a 4K TV

Here are 20 moments in Blood & Truth that will make you feel like a true action hero:

  1. You can dual-wield a weapon in either hand and fire them!
  2. You can still grab ammo from your chest pouch and reload them, but for true heroics do it in slow-motion as you jump through a window or off a building.
  3. Reloading normally is for chumps! How about throwing your magazine in the air and catching it in your gun?
  4. Some weapons have extra interactions, which improve their performance. For example, put your hand over the hammer of the revolver to fan it and get a faster fire rate.
  5. Flick shut the revolver and sawn-off after loading them so you can fire quicker.
  6. Use your teeth to pull out grenade pins!
  7. There is so much fun to be had with grenades! You can ‘bake’ a grenade by pulling the pin before you throw it to get a slightly shorter detonation time.
  8. Roll grenades and bounce them off walls and they will detonate instantly if you hit your target.
  9. For ultimate style points, catch an enemy grenade and throw it back at them! Even better, activate precision mode and shoot the grenade before it lands to take them out! Awesome!
  10. You earn mods and gun skins by collecting Stars. These are awarded for mission scores, hitting hidden targets and finding collectables.
  11. We have silencers, extended magazines, sights and laser pointers that you can attach to the weapons in your collection!
  12. The gun skins are just for fun, but you can seriously show off by customizing your pump-action shotgun in hot pink or your revolver in classy gold!
  13. This deserves a special mention because nothing says action hero quite like the thunk of a grenade launcher. Particularly when aimed at a 4×4 or attack helicopter. You’ll unlock the grenade launcher when you play through the missions, but you can also unlock a sub-barrel grenade launcher mod for the assault rifle and semi-automatic rifle. You can quickly switch between the gun’s normal fire mode and grenade launcher with the Triangle button.
  14. If you just want to show off, hold down Triangle and flick your wrist to spin your gun on your trigger finger. Brilliant with a 9mm pistol, awesome with an SMG, totally off-the-scale with a pair of sawn-off shotguns!
  15. There are so many things you can do in the middle of a gun fight. Try turning up the car radio while taking out an enemy’s tire.
  16. Stagger an enemy with successful rapid fire and watch them clutch onto their injured limbs. Activate precision mode and land a lethal kill shot.
  17. Try out your music skills by cross fading and adding samples on the DJ decks in the casino!
  18. Getting headshots in precision mode will extend the time you are in it — so make sure you’re accurate!
  19. Give a thumbs up or your best hand gestures as you put a bullet into a gas canister.
  20. Knock down enemies in run ‘n’ gun sequences by driving your fist into their skulls, or for extra style, try pistol-whipping.

But serious, this is a fantastic game. Its almost exactly what I wanted out of VR. Probably my longest non-stop VR session i've had.

I'm about an hour and a bit in. At one point it dragged with 3 "shut up and listen" scenes in a row, but that action scenes more than made up for it. I'm still a bit fumbly, constantly accidently putting the gun in my left hand when I am trying to use it to steady the gun but boy is it fun. Aiming is really nice, the guns feel nice and best of all absolutely no motion sickness at all. I played standing but I think it's probably better to be seated.

I do have two videos up at

if anyone is interested. Nothing special, just me playing the game. There is a lot of nipple rubbing. The 16 minute clip is the first mission up until I failed it and caused the game to crash.

Have Blood and Truth ready to go this weekend, currently working through Astro Bot Rescue Mission, which has been the standout PSVR game by far. Grabbed Super Hot cheap off PSN and still waiting for Moss and Beat Saber to go on sale. Playroom VR was an enjoyable multiplayer game and did some great things with the TV players working with or against the VR headset.

After being skeptical of the tech and its place in gaming, the PSVR is right up there with the Switch as my best gaming purchase this gen. I appreciate games that respect my time and VR is great for quick jump in and out sessions. Accounting + (for those that enjoy the Rick n Morty style humor but even weirder) was a standout in this regard, cheap and short experience that didn't over stay its welcome. Just in Time incorporated was another short and sweet experience.

Have only had 2 games give me motion sickness, Farpoint and Driveclub VR. Shame about Farpoint because i was really enjoying it up until the 3rd or 4th world when the action ramps up and now i cant last more than 10 minutes without getting dizzy.
