Re: The VR Thread (Oculus Rift, Vive, Playstation VR)

This blog says you can check the box; the new headset is model CUH-ZVR2 . The older headset is CUH-ZVR1

But yes, I think mattysemo247 is correct that only the Doom and Skyrim bundles have the new headset at the moment. Even if you're ok with the first gen headset, there's really no reason to get the "standalone" headset + camera box when the GT bundle is the same price

Re: The VR Thread (Oculus Rift, Vive, Playstation VR)

I got the PS VR Grand Turismo bundle for Christmas and Im loving it so far. My favorite thing to do is watch VR youtube videos. Its so cool to be at Disney World or hangliding some place I will never get to go. The technology is awesome even though it's "not quite there yet." It's exciting to think about where VR will be in 5-10 years.

HTC is refreshing its Vive headset with a new Pro model today. The original Vive debuted nearly two years ago, and the new Vive Pro is clearly designed to address some of the complaints of that earlier headset. HTC is increasing the resolution of the dual-OLED displays to 2880 x 1600 (1400 x 1600 per eye, and 615 ppi), a 78 percent increase from the 2160 x 1200 (1080 x 1200 per eye) resolution in the current Vive. This resolution increase should help with clearer text rendering and overall graphics, and the bump puts the Vive Pro beyond the Oculus Rift or Windows Mixed Reality headsets.

Alongside the resolution increase, HTC has also redesigned the Vive Pro’s headstrap and added built-in headphones. One of the complaints of the original Vive was that it was difficult to adjust and heavy, and you had to plug in headphones, creating another cable dangling to potentially upset your VR experience. The Vive Pro’s headstrap includes a sizing dial so the headset is a lot more balanced, and it hopefully won’t feel too top heavy at the front. We’ll be testing it out later today to find out if this redesign has helped with the comfort, and whether the headset feels lighter as a result.

Re: The VR Thread (Oculus Rift, Vive, Playstation VR)

We got our son the PSVR for Christmas which he loved the IDEA of and we even got him the AIM controller with the game Farpoint which he likes and is very cool, however the game does not even have the option for subtitles and being deaf, it makes the game almost unplayable since you need to be able to hear instructions to follow some of the steps. He went from being so excited to being so sad and disappointed that he couldn't really play the game unless I was sitting next to him and having to tap his shoulder for him to take of the headset so i could sign to him what he needed to do. He was all teary-eyed asking why "they not have words(subtitles) in game?" over and over. I felt so bad for him.

Does anyone know of ANY PSVR games that do offer in game subtitles?

Re: The VR Thread (Oculus Rift, Vive, Playstation VR)

So I did this at Walt Disney World this past week:



Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire at The Void. Basically a walkthrough VR experience. You put on a sensor vest, wear a headset, walk through a warehouse in a completely immersive VR environment. Including blasting Stormtroopers, solving puzzles, etc.

Completely enveloping, 360 degree visual and audio immersion. This was a freakin' Star Trek holodeck. You moved from environment to environment that was mapped to the layout of the building.

I cannot believe how impressive and seamless this experience was. I did it with 7 friends (two groups of 4) and everyone raved. Your teammates all look like rebels in stolen Stormtrooper outfits. At one point you have to pick up blaster rifles from a virtual rack and open fire at enemy Imperials.

The whole thing lasted about 10-15 minutes. It was the best $36 I ever spent.

Re: The VR Thread (Oculus Rift, Vive, Playstation VR)

This is at Downtown Disney in Anaheim too! Was wondering if it was any good or worth it.

Worth every penny. This is some serious next-gen interactive entertainment.
