    Already have a camera and one one move controller. Need to get a 2nd one at some point, but no one seems to have them new anymore, and rather not get a 2nd hand one.

    Got two moves (new) online from gamestop today.

    Anyone seen the new thrustmaster Joystick for PS4 only out recently.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,662 ✭✭✭ Doge




    Looks identical to the older T.Flight HOTAS X just with a blue colour scheme.

    The older one supports War Thunder, I have used it with my PS 4.

    I hope they dont do the same as Logitech did with the G27 racing wheel and not support it anymore.

    I want to use mine with Eve Valkryie.

    According to Reddit it's a decent bit better for the stick, dead zone is half what the X is and as well as the active area being better, also ye it's blue.

    Sony are *considering* bringing PSVR to PC according to Masayasu Ito, Chief Executive of the Product Division and software design department of SCE, in an article on Japanese news site Nikkei:

    http://www.nikkei.com/article/DGXMZO98760930T20C16A3000000/?df=2

    "Since Playstation 4 shares a lot of its internals with PCs, the possibility is there. At the moment we are focused on games and we are not ready to make any announcements at this stage, but I’d say there will be an expansion into various fields."

    Translated version here:

    http://segmentnext.com/2016/03/28/sony-considering-playstation-vr-pc/


    That would make the PSVR even better value for money for people who have PC's as well as the PSVR.

    Who's making it, they closed the developer Evolution Studios.

    If the PS4.5 is real and required it's going to be an expensive october may start saving now, goning to be an expensive october without the 4.5 even.

    PS4.5
    Headset + camera
    Flightstick
    Wheel.

    Can't wait for some war thunder VR, be more interested in that than in Ace combat.

    If that is indeed a PS4 running that, and it there's no/little pixelation in the headset, I'm sold. Imagine the possibilities for cockpit games...

    Just Pre-Ordered on Amazon. Highly doubt I'll get it launch day now but surely before Christmas?

    Had my heart set on the Vive but just cannot afford a new gaming rig on top of the price of the Vive so PSVR is what I've decided to go with.


  • Registered Users Posts: 26,961 ✭✭✭✭ boneyarsebogman


    If VR becomes the next big thing then I could potentially see PSVR coming out on top. Not because of graphics and performance, but because of the price point. PS4 costs (country dependent) around €400. PSVR with camera and controls included is about €500. Even altogether that costs half of what it would to get the best experience on the Vive/Oculus, where top notch PCs could potentially cost the full price of PS4 & PSVR.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,926 ✭✭✭ jonerkinsella


    I was gonna pre order but I decided that I'm gonna wait to see what Argos comes up with first. Argos normally has fantastic deals at that time of the year.

    I'm holding out for E3 before I pull the trigger on anything 4.5 of VR related purchases.


  • Registered Users Posts: 26,961 ✭✭✭✭ boneyarsebogman


    Has there been any inclination as to the price point for games on it?

    They won't be able to charge full whack for the early VR games as they will be just tech glorified demos and nothing more. Just like the first Move games on the PS3.

    The only full proper game with VR support announced so far is Ace Combat 7 and that can be played without VR if you want.

    Theres far more than that: Eve Valkriye, Gran Turismo Sport, War Thunder, project Cars, Drive Club, RIGS, Trackmania turbo, Ark: Survival Evolved

    Trackmania Turbo is going to get VR?

    Holy sh1t. That's pretty much a guaranteed purchase for me. That game is absolutely bananas - Trackmania. I'm sure Turbo will be madness too.

    Moto Racer 4 will have PSVR Support:
