So - have mine now setup! couple of questions:-

 

1 - The image on the TV isn't full screen and is a little fuzzy, is that normal?

2 - any tips of glasses clouding up?

3 - did anyone manage to make it through the kitchen in one sitting lol?

 

thanks,

jason

Go to settings on the PS4 and set the output res back to 1080p it sets it to the 720p by default or something.

What were you playing? Do you have an aversion to a type of movement in VR or (hopefully not) VR in general?

first experience of VR. I played VR worlds demo (driveclub, wayward, london heist) tumble and the kitchen. I want to throw up. I really hope this doesn't mean I am not able to use it, as the experience truly blew me away!

I had a slight headache the first time I used it, but not had any problems.  I've seen people mention getting their "VR legs" so hopefully it will be something you adjust to over time.

@bluejmc2005 Driveclub could be the culprit, although it might just be too much VR intensity in one go.

 

Golden rule: Don't go back in for at least 24 hours, and ease yourself back in. Avoid fast-movement games for a while.

 

You'll be fine.

Not seen any love (or hate or anything come to think of it) for Stardust VR.  The new game is a bit nausea inducing but seems better than the BattleZone demo, but the main game is fantastic in VR. It's the same as it was but in full 3D with just enough scale to make you want to look around without feeling uncomfortable. Loving it.

Yep, the old Stardust game is fantastic in VR (I used to play it in 3d anyway - but this is much better). The new tank game made me feel bloody awful - that was launch day, and I've not gotten back to it, so my new VR legs might have improved matters. I remember driving over bumps in the ground - it was those bloody bumps that made me feel dreadful... Looked pretty though.

 

Might take the plunge with Windlands later on.... fingers crossed..

Have you configured your IPD measurement? Settings > Devices > PsVr

 

take a picture without the headset on and set the cursor to the centre of your eyes.

 

without that an extended play will potentially make you feel squiffy as the depth and everything will be well off.

that's the 70cm calibration thing, right? I've never done it.

No i have not done that - thanks for the tip. Head still hurts now but sickness wearing off! Im wondering fi the fact i have a high subscription for my glasses may be part of the issue. I dunno - I want it to work for me because I was truly blwon away but it. the Kitchen is unreal!

Also, just to check, you're wearing your glasses inside the headset, yes?

The glasses shouldn't matter, but the IPD measurement will, unless you're a freak like @SeanR and by freak, I mean lucky that the default is about right for you

Took the plung and got Windland. Slightly concerned by the bespoke vomit warning as the game loaded - it even suggests not playing if you haven't gotten your VR legs yet.....

 

Had 10 mins of play and I'm off for a 30 min recovery nap.... its almost designed to balls you up.

So now we know why there's an age rating on the psvr.

@nakamura just bought his daughter around and she had a go on job simulator

 she was so engrossed in washing her hands that she lent forward to get more soap and fell straight into my tv.

you'll be pleased to know that both my tv and headset are fine, even though they took quite a whack.

Yep, it's way way way too much for me to handle any time soon. Just had a chat with PSN support - they've just refunded me, no questions asked.

 

Stick with Tethered.

My father had a go on my PSVR at the weekend and kept complaining that everything was really blurry. Turns out he needed his reading glasses on rather than his usual glasses. Strange, but makes sense really

Dunno. The focal distance is about 8ft, so normal daily specs or driving specs should be better than reading specs. E.g for anything less than 2 feet I can see/read fine without specs IRL. But inside PSVR I can see shit. Put my varifocals on for middle distance and all is well in VR land.
