What is this VR you speak of? Back in early 2012 through to late 2015 this was the question that most people were thinking and to most was something from a sci-fi film. Oculus was starting to make waves then entered Playstation with their vision who showed us the future of VR. At the time VR headsets were expensive but Playstation committed to a price that was almost half the price of entry into this new platform let alone needing a monster PC to boot.
As soon as I see the PSVR with that Sony quality design/build and to not use a strap to apply pressure to your face I was SOLD. I tried the Vive just under a year to the PSVR launch and was so blown away I counted every day until I could get my hands on my PSVR. Would I be disappointing with the resolution? Would it be a gimmick to put down and gather dust? Would there be no games like my Eye Toy and Move Controllers that Sony dropped so quickly? To answer…….NO! It was the best piece of gaming I had since the generation and generation of consoles. This was not only the next step into immersion it was a giant leap of a VR kind!
PRESENT AND FUTURE
Skip a few years and here we are with many headsets and the PSVR selling millions. To me the PSVR is still the best headset for comfort, I rarely get tracking issues and to think it all works with 8 year old controllers, 5 year old hardware is excellent and if you had all this prior like me…………didn’t add extra cost to VR entry.
