HTC Vive hits back following "VR is dying" claims

OtisBDriftwood

3 weeks ago

@FortysixterUK PSVR has been on the market 2 years, Had supply constraints during that, VR is going to be big whether you can afford it or not chap. PS5 will have the power to push PSVR next to the PCVR so they don't get borked ports or no games at all. Developers will jump aboard as the tech is too damn exciting to abandon.

VR is the only exciting thing in gaming, RE7 alone was worth it as not only did it show how much better playing a game can be in VR, But it pretty much made it impossible to go back to flat TV gaming in comparison. PSVR is held back by the base PS4. PS5 they will have the power and new motion controllers to make PSVR much more mainstream. It's going nowhere.

FIFA player uses GDPR to find out everything EA has on him, realises he's spent over $10,000 in two years on Ultimate Team

OtisBDriftwood

3 weeks ago

@witchdrash But to fund EA knowing full well it has scripted momentum, Thus making the money spent pointless because you are still at the beck and call of the momentum, Which i'm sure was one of the reasons he wanted the GDPR. So it's open to debate if he got entertainment because clearly the momentum was affecting his gameplay. Shocking waste of money on what is a football videogame with digital characters.

Giving £10,000 to play a football game is absurd, Regardless of disposable income. No wonder EA never change it's ways, Pro clubs is a perfect example of Momentum aswell. God help people paying £10,000 and still being at the beck and call of momentum. Their gold ronaldo still getting caught up by a 81 rated CB.

Been looking forward to this for while. I'll do what i did with RE7, I'll shareplay it so my friend can watch me play it while i'm in VR, Giving me that little sense of co-op while he turns the lights out on the companion app probably!

Dead Space vibes from this.

The moves work fine, It's basically the Skyrim button layout, It has to be played in co-op with a buddy. The levels are fantastic and the puzzles are. It's a taster of what could be possible. Replaced Arizona for us as the better zombie killing fun, The physics are also brilliant, Killing zombies with there own limbs!. Enjoy this VR segment though so hopefully it sticks around as theres a few games coming out soon.

Why next-gen consoles shouldn't focus on 'true 4K'

OtisBDriftwood

I'm all about VR so it needs better CPU because VR is minimum 60fps and PSVR2 shouls be 120. Couldnt really care about 4K as flat TV gaming isn't as good as it used to be for me, I feel i have seen everything there is to offer, Graphics are diminishing returns territory.

Loved Dead Space 1/2, Remember being scared shitless so only did 1 chapter at a time and getting to that save point was such a relief. Didn't get 3 as the co-op put me off and MT.

Hoping The Persistence on PSVR this month can give me that Dead Space/Event Horizon fix as it seems of that mould.

Best gaming purchase for many years, Every genre already covered.
Horror = RE7
Shooter = Farpoint
RPG = Skyrim
Platformer = Moss
Racer = Wipeout
Zombie fix = Arizona Sunshine.

It's got too the point where the visuals are that good in Farpoint, Me and a friend did it co-op and it has made games like Farcry 5 look a major stepback, As you're not there in person like VR gives.

Great article, VR has in some way ruined normal gaming on a tv, As VR makes it feel a huge stepback going back to TV gaming. RE7 proves that, Skyrim proves that. Farpoint is top tier shooting and makes Halo/Destiny feel ancient considering you can actually see you're co-op partner in VR.

But saying that all my genres was covered already..

horror..RE7
Sci-fi...Farpoint
Zombie fix...Arizona
Medieval fantasy....Skyrim

It's why i havent bought a game yet this year, None grab me like those games did. We need more from big devs.

Pro clubs is shocking, The scripting seems way overboard this time. The catch-up of the defenders are insane against a 90 pace/acceleration forward.
Barely any teams have been made in comparison to 17.
Everyone just runs the byline and crosses it in still
No rain?
No handballs?
No new camera perspective.

Cant speak for any of the other modes.

In this day and age, Why do we still only have 2 football games to choose from.

Sony should bring back this is football.

After playing Farpoint in VR, Recently playing and completing Arizona sunshine in VR with a friend, Both with the aim, We really feel it's such a backstep now playing these shooters traditionally. Destiny 2 is great graphically and feels good to play, But feels no different than Halo 3 way back when.

Nothing feels new in these games anymore, They are just more of the same.

Honestly ME3 was the beginning of the end for me with this series, Way too many issues with that game regardless of metacritic score.

But like everyone else, Love for the series meant i bought MEA hoping things have improved etc, Turns out it was actually worse the ME3.

Shocking how this series panned out, ME1/2 are right up there with fave games of all time.

Ahh well, Got that Dragons Dogma remake coming this year for PS4.

What's Phil Harrison up to these days?

OtisBDriftwood

1 year ago

@captain-T-dawg Comes a point in gaming as you get older, Where these great games of today( and rightly so great) reach a point of nothing new. Graphics themselves have reached a ceiling and look superb, But 4K,HDR still don't put you in there like VR does. After experiencing R7 in VR, It doesn't matter what resolution you run it at on a TV, It will never be as good and immersive as it is in VR.

And what people forget is, PSVR hasn't even been out 1 whole year yet, And look at what games we are getting already.

OtisBDriftwood

I'm all in with VR, PSVR has transformed gaming for me, Made it interesting and more importantly fun and immersive so i disagree and agree with phil.

The setup itself can be annoying with the breakout box, Wires, Tracking etc, And tht will surely improve over time. R7 & Farpoint prove that when VR works, It's unmatchable when it comes to immersion.

And thats just PSVR, I can only imagine how great the Vive and Occulus must be.

And yet part of the reason why i don't venture this site much is EG disdain for VR, Maybe they just love playing yearly iteration games in 4K or something.
