Lets say Horizon VR is a killer app - you're still at $599 plus tax for a system and one game that isn't back compatible with older VR titles.

It's funny that some people seem to think Sony thinks this is a mass market price point, it's cheaper than other VR solutions that have more limited specs. It's supposed to be a niche thing, it's always going to be that's why they aren't putting VR in every game or making this out to be the next big thing in gaming.

Personally, I think it's a waste of resources and they shouldn't bother with it, I'd rather that money went towards making more traditional console games but I know they are smart enough to know that this is going to be a slow roll and even though it's a good value for what's included it's still very expensive and most people won't be buying it.

Jim Ryan said VR was a strategic opportunity to capitalise on the potentially huge VR market.

This isn't that. All they have done is make sure it stays a niche product.

$550? Good lord, they know they can milk the s*** out of PS fans. This gimmick should be $399, MAX.
Honestly it’s a lot of tech for what it is, no oculus quest pro, but similar-ish. I’m sure they’re gonna lose a lot with each sold. Maybe it’ll get a minor revision like the last.

Sony's first party has made 2 games in the past 3 years for PSVR 1. Not sure why anyone would buy this. But since I think this is a joke, I will bow out of this thread.

Dang, I didn’t know it was only two games….astrobot was one of them, no?

Hopefully there’s another to showcase what’s possible with the tech. I feel the horizon Game may be a on rails shooter. Sucks too that their one studio (who’s name escapes me atm) that was gonna focus on vr isn’t any longer

That strategy only works if software sales are booming, and they don't. Beat Saber for example only sold like 4 million across PSVR, PC, and Quest. The estimated revenue was a rather small $180 million. That game is one of, if not the biggest selling VR game.

I don't think the money is there to take big losses on the hardware.

Platform holders do tend to be terrible at supporting their side hardware. Xbox supported Kinect poorly. Sony supported PSP & Vita poorly.

There's a ton of content coming for this.

PSVR-2 looks a lot more attractive to me over what Meta provides. I don't have a powerful PC which is what I think I would need in addition to the VR hardware. This makes PSVR cheaper for me since I already have a PS5. PSVR is expensive but doable for me. Mainstream appeal is another matter entirely, just speaking for myself.

Better off just getting a Quest 2 for 400 for the larger storage model. It's untethered (makes a huge difference) and does all the processing in headset. You can even tether it to your computer if you want. That price point is nuts, imo.

Hdr is pretty awesome, I'm not gonna lie. It's still reaaaly niche. I say that as someone with a Quest 1 and 2. It's cool, but like a lot of devices that require set up or special conditions, it just sits most of the time. I've got quite a few games too.

Billions of colors vs millions of colors is significant when trying to duplicate a sense of reality.
This is without counting the better blacks and brighter highlights.

Niche or the competition is dated?
It's like putting a Lambo down because it's so advanced and expensive vs a more affordable and less capable Dodge Neon.

If Sony markets this right it will be more successful than the 1st.

Like a dog you finally caught your own tail?
You done it for years.
Hence the beginning of this place you being a mod I was and been very vocal about.

Only xbot mods can post negative non Xbox news and criticisms.

People that actually play on multiple current gen devices aren't allowed to do such if it's against Xbox.

Really pathetic tbh
