So apparently Skyrim VR is meant to be really really special. It's breaking sales records for Sony.

VR ain't going anywhere it looks like. Genuinely tempted even though I don't like Skyrim. An open-world fantasy RPG seems like the ultimate thing you want to have in VR.

Doesn't look like Skyrim is going anywhere either.

I'm intrigued by VR. But not £350 intrigued.

Just picked up PSVR today, £250 in game with GT Sport (skyrim had sold out) but traded GT in for some PSN credit.

Also despite my criticism of it early on I did sign up to Game Elite earlier this year. To be honest I haven't been able to fault it for value I paid £30 for it which I have already made back in reward points from purchases and trade ins they had a couple of stupidly good offers early days which netted you double trade in value and extra points to to the extent here I had gone from £12 loyalty points to £45 in half a year, because of High trade in values back then I still also had £30 credit.

So with the lower price and £75 worth of points seemed like a good time to jump in.

Let me know what you make of the PSVR. Tried it before and the FOV bothered me but I really do want to get into some VR.

Vive is really good but you need all that room to use it.

Hmmm just seen the £250 deals. Getting nearer. Just need the games now and I could be tempted. Skyrim can do one.

Almost grabbed a PSVR headset this week with the deals going on. Had to pull myself back as ultimately its just adding to the backlog. I'd rather play what I have than keep buying more expensive hardware that I may not use that much.

Oh and here's a guide to playing Skyrim in VR...

Its nice that they found a way around that awful teleport movement system, and that new map looks cool.

Think I'm going to go for that PSVR deal later this week.

GAME have got Headset + Camera + VR Worlds + GT Sport + Twin Move Controllers for £300

The usual bundle is everywhere else, but I kind of feel like the Controllers are essential, you know?

You're a pc owner though, wouldn't you want to get a Vive? There's a pretty big quality difference.

If you haven't demoed PSVR it's a good idea beforehand so you know what you're getting

There is also a a £400 price difference.
I was interested in the Vive, but given I couldn't be sure how much I will use it PSVR seemed a really good entry point.
Guess the only thing while I haven't checked the model number I assume they a clearing off the original model VR Unit.

Yeah got the Pro, and did have a bit of an influence.

Spent most of Sunday with the unit now, and have it setup largely how I want, working out camera placement was biggest issue, but really happy it tracks
pretty well, even move controllers which I heard can be a little twitchy, the immersion is great once you get it setup to eliminate the blur, played a little bit of until dawn,
gt sport some of the demos, and a couple of the VR experiences.

So Far I'm Impressed, best of all its by far the most comfortable Headset I have used, both the oculus and Vive Made wearing glasses impossible, but they really have nailed it
glasses sit nicely under the unit with no added pressure on frames, which is a big win for me.

There's just no games for Vive or Rift that interest me though really. Whereas PSVR has a few decent exclusives already and a few more on the way early next year (Bravo Team, The Impatient, Moss, Blood and Stone), I just can't justify £400 for the Rift and £600 for the Vive either, way above my station, PSVR seems like a perfect price/quality compromise.

Never had the chance to demo PSVR, nor will I, so will just have to buy it and hope it doesn't make me leak out of both ends.
