64g seems plenty for now as the games aren't more than a few gigs. I have even heard that you can even fit everything currently available on the 64g one. Though who knows how big game sizes will get going forward.

Astrobot (the full game) is like the killer app to me as far as the PS VR goes. The free Playroom VR gives an excellent sample of it. In fact it's still probably my most played game because of the kids, despite being free (and yes, I know they'll end up blind).

I'd do the Sound System, those last for a long time (lightning permitting) and are more an actual investment, VR is continually upgraded and the next best thing will probably be available before you know it.

Yeah, Astrobot is fantastic, really wish that wasn't first party (alas, the PS4 easily has the best Traditional Gamepad integration of any VR.)

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

Is it purely a sound system or a receiver for the TV? If the latter, I'm no expert, but isn't that sector going through some changes with the HDMI standards and passing through hi res videos? If it's just sound, then yeah speaker technology is pretty constant (if not expensive).

Also depends on which VR. PC VR, I'd agree, wait a bit. PS VR, the PS5 should be backward compatible if you're even going to upgrade to it soon, and it's got some decent deals right now.

Speakers solely for gaming on a high-end gaming PC.

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

Ok, I may be hooked on Pokerstars VR on the quest. Was playing on full table last night full of your typical characters you'd run into at a real casino table, lol. One guy sounded high as a kite and provided some pretty funny commentary. Being able to buy and use drinks/cigars/random trinkets is pretty fun as well.

Sideloading custom songs in Beat Saber Quest is surprisingly pretty easy, the app that guy created that essentially recreates the APK file is pretty slick.

It feels like that wouldn’t be as fun, as the levels are pretty well synced to their music. Is that not as noticeable as it seems like it’d be?

They vary but most are in pretty solid sync, ie: this absurd one and


The stages themselves work as visual synthesizers. If you change the color of your sabers + blocks in the mod, i believe it also modifies the stage colors.

I also sideloaded Quake onto the Quest. That was... weird. Really cool, but difficult to play and the scale was off (felt like an ant) but really cool just the same.

I saw a 64gb Quest in stock on the website at my local Wal-Mart last night. Got there and they’re like “oh that’s never right. We sold two this morning.”

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

I have been trying to find a 128gb Quest, but no luck. Walmart and BestBuys are totally out of stock and what makes it worse is the fact that they cannot back order one for me as its Puerto fucking Rico. Such a double standard for shipping and buying to this island. US citizens, but they don't get treated the same as say people in Hawaii. Sure its not a state, but it's a fuck lot closer to the mainland than that state.
