Ouch, I had a feeling it would be at least $500.

Considering many are still struggling to get the $500 console, which is required to use the VR2, I don't see this selling as well as Sony hopes.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't interested in it, but I absolutely won't be an early adopter. I just picked up a Meta Quest 2 a few months back, and plan to play that for a while.

Does anyone know if Sony confirmed backwards compatibility with the older PSVR games? I would assume they work, but wouldn't be surprised to see Sony strip it of backwards compatibility.

So far the Horizon game is what has me most intrigued.

It’s not backwards compatible, but that doesn’t bother me. I’m just going to keep my PSVR too.

I think $549.99 is pretty reasonable for the specs. Current VR headsets that match or exceed this are $1000+. When the PSVR launched, it cost $50 more than the PS4 (just like how this is $50 more than the PS5). (PSVR was $399.99 vs $349.99 at that point for the PS4). This is a day one purchase for me if I can get it. I’ve had money saved up specifically for it for years.

PSVR games are not backwards compatible with the new PSVR2,

Looks like they’re only available via direct.playstation.com, you have to register and be selected (criteria unknown), and it’s one PSVR2 per Sony ID. Nice pushback against bots, but now I’m legit concerned that I won’t be able to get one.

Oof, I didn't expect it to be cheap, but at that price I'm very likely not getting one at launch.
An announcement of an Astro Bot sequel might have helped to convince me I need this day one though. How did they not think to have a sequel ready for launch?

The games aren't currently compatible but word is that many will be patched to work. Either way I'm registered and excited for this.

PS4 VR always makes me nauseous, I think due to the blur effect when moving (ex: Farpoint was really bad). Does newer VR technology reduce the blurring/nauseating effect?

Farpoint is probably the only game that I experienced this with, and maybe a little bit of the Robinson project. Most games don’t have that effect.

Too pricy for me at launch, but will get down the line for sure. Not into being an early adopter

Unfortunately some people will never be able to handle VR. Sometimes the more you play the better it gets but I know people that can't handle it at all. Better resolution, fps, etc definitely does help. It also could be the style of games. My wife can only really handle the diorama style games where you manipulate what's in front of you but stay stationary. Anything with movement, even the teleport and snap movement is too much for her. If you are sensitive you can start with stuff like Moss, Ghost Giant, and Statik and see how you do. Then move to stuff with snap and teleport movement and then to full motion FPS games.

So I guess I am screwed when it comes to pre ordering.

Sony did say they plan to have 2 million of these ready to go in time for launch, so hopefully it won't be that hard to find for the people that really want one. I think scalpers might back off a bit because it's still a niche thing anyway and no guarantee they'll be able to resell it.

Yeah, I agree. I just want to make sure. Sony is going to pump the market full of PS5s this holiday season. GameStop even has some reasonable bundles you can get same with the Source (Canada thing) it's not nearly as hard to get one now.

PS5 is in stock (not Canada) on PS Dierct right now - MW2 Bundle. They're easier to get online but I still have yet to see one in a store to buy.

I think $550 is a fair price when you compare it to other VR headsets and the current state of PS5/XSX pricing. It's still a niche item but for those that like VR it's going to be great. I'm definitely interested but am going to wait until there is a larger game library for it.
