LMAO, 2 million sales out of 70 million PS4s is pathetic. PSVR is the Kinect/Move of the current gen.

The VR headset released a year ago at $500.

I imagine you thought the same thing about PCs, Smartphones, Tablets, Consoles and every other form of new tech that came into existence in your life?

2 million sales for a 1st gen device means VR is doing just as good and in many cases better than even the best selling early smartphones.

@DarthBuzzer Kinect 1.0 sold over 12 million in one year and a life time total of over 25 million on the 360 alone (not sure about PC).

So what’s your point?

My only issue with consoles ever trying stuff like VR (They did this with motion controls too) is that the tech is discarded the moment a new console comes out because of how consoles are designed. With a PC VR headset I feel more secure in my purchase because the damn thing won't quit working in 2 years.

I can't wait for the valve knuckles controllers to be released I think they are going to be a game changer.

What are people even buying PS VR for? There's no good exclusives made for it.

Resident Evil 7
Doom VR
Skyrim VR
Gran Turismo Sport


Of all those games you listed, 1 is exclusive....


I'm no playstation fanboy, but if they already have the PS4, then getting the VR on that console will be better for them than getting it for PC, in which they might not have a strong enough pc
Perhaps a one sided CTF in Overwatch? 1 team captures the "flag" X times. Then flip roles

You can't compare the two. Kinect was built on decades of existing motion sensor technology. It's just a motion sensing input device, and there have been many many consumer products like that in the past.

VR is a brand new medium in it's 1st consumer generation. Every form of tech in it's 1st generation takes more than 10 years to have mainstream appeal.

The thing with the PSVR is that it's basically just a specialized monitor with head tracking. Someone has made it work even with an XBox I think (though without head tracking).

So worst case scenario with PSVR, someone will hack a way to make it work on PC.

Usually though you're right. Console manufactures are quick to jump on a bandwagon and then they forget about it as soon as the initial hype dies down. In this case I'm sure they're glad they found a way to salvage the PS Move technology from years ago since they no doubt had a ton of that s*** lying around.

Is "mixed reality" the AR/hololens stuff?

Microsoft is using the term incorrectly, but probably because they wanted to be searchable and right now if you search "Mixed Reality" their VR headsets pop right up at the top, where if you were to search for VR you'd get Rift, Vive, PS4 VR and THEN maybe Microsoft's stuff.

Really, their "mixed reality" headsets are not remotely mixed in any way shape or form. Maybe they'll work it that way in the future, but at the moment, they've just got two cameras on front to help tracking, and that's it.

I think they had a demo of a 3D VR movie of a kid knocking over some cups and you could sorta "project" that over your floor (not really projecting, just doing the "augmented reality" thing where you put video images over the live video in the background). I don't know if that shipped with the first gen headsets or if that was just something they showed to people who were testing it in the early phases.

At the moment though, Windows MR headsets are using Steam for games and nothing on steam uses a pass through camera.

12M forced with the console until MS removed and discontinued this waste of space.
