    I'd say so, I'd guess that all major retailers that have demo consoles, which normally come from Sony, will also have demo VR units. The real question is when will they arrive for demo and what will they smell like after a couple of hundred sweaty dirty grubby smelly children have had their heads all up in them?

    Yeah I'm still on the fence about VR and while Im convinced it's something I really want to experience - I still don't know what it's going to be like after long gaming sessions. Currently 3-4 hours a night on my regular PS4 monitor and I think my vision is starting to deteriorate (after 8 hour days of viewing monitors at work as well) so will be looking for feedback on longterm usage - not specific to ps4 so should be easy to find.

    Though if it's an optional peripheral like the G29 that I have then it'd be good as an optional 'nice to have' when the wife is out and sprog asleep.

    smelly children sweat is one thing, it's the old ass filthy gamers like me I'd be worried about!

    Speak for yourself crow, the sweat coming from my 42 year old forehead has the same aroma that I imagine angels tears have, sweet and liberating with just a hint of freshly baked cookies.

    Not really a game, but BandaiNamco has an app to watch Virtual Idols perform on stage.
    idolm@ster: Cinderella Girls Viewing Revolution

    Honestly, looks like a lazy job since they are using the same sort of engine from the mobile game and not the new engine that Platinum Stars is running on.

    And Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 will be getting a VR patch in October.

    PSVR's Cinematic Mode is like having a personal 226-inch screen.

    As PlayStation VR nears ever closer to release, Sony revealed a new feature of the headset that essentially transforms its display into your personal 226-inch TV.

    Coined "Cinematic Mode," the PSVR can turn movies or games running on your PS4 into an ultra-widescreen affair.

    The information was originally released by PlayStation's Japanese blog, demonstrating the feature with Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and Robert Zemeckis' The Walk - a film we can only imagine induces ungodly cases of vertigo in VR.

    Users have three screen sizes to choose from with Cinematic Mode - a large resolution simulating a 226-inch screen, a medium-sized 163-inch display, and a smaller setting of 117 inches.

    Sony sets the medium as the default, likening the largest setting to sitting front-row at a movie theater. The smaller setting, however, can easily adjust to the viewer's head movement - perfect for if you decide to lie down after a few hours upright VR viewing.

    Massive screens, small wearables

    In addition to playing back your games and Blu-rays in virtual reality, Sony added that the PSVR will also support 360-degree video and photography played through the PS4's media player.

    In theory, Cinematic Mode could also function as an emergency screen, such as when you need to play Persona 5 but TV in the living room is busy showing the big game. It could possibly also serve as a way to take your PS4 out on trips without lugging a cumbersome rectangular monitor in tandem.

    Will see how this pans out, and will hold off on any tv upgrades.
    But wearing a headset for hours on end will be interesting. And on top of that a pair of headphones.

    I hope there's a wireless solution for the headset. There's a lot of wire coming in and out of the external box.
    If the wire to the headset is long enough no problem but still don't like the idea of having a wire across the living room while using the headset.
    Will the Neo do away with the extra box?

    Dunno, it almost makes me want to wait to see if in a year or two they can come out with wireless VR headsets, but then again is it even possible to transfer that much data without a wire?

    We have wireless keyboard, mice and headphones but these devices dont transfer much at all, where as a VR headset is doing gigabytes of data

    price is attractive for PSVR

    you could buy PSVR, PS camera and probably the new Neo console and still have change left over for what vive costs. And a lot of people that go for vive are going to need a new graphics card as well.

    big bonus for Sony.

    Also sounds like its fairly easy to get PSVR working on a PC

    FFS need to invest in a steering wheel too. I'm going to stop looking at this thread.

    don't need to, but the steering wheel has always made a driving game more immersive, VR hasn't changed that
