That's not what causes VR sickness. It's a subconscious decision made by your brainfailing a double check test. Your brain is constantly checking the horizon viewed by your eye and felt in your inner ear. At its simplest form if you tip your head to the right. Your brain "sees" the horizon tip with your eyes and "feels" it with your ears. As both inputs say tip you feel fine. 

 

In VR if the game tips the horizon but your head is straight your brain gets a conflicting report. Eyes are saying tip, ear is saying straight. At which point your brain starts to freak out. If you have a continued conflict of inputs eyes vs ears then our bodies conclude one thing. That basically we've eaten something poisonous and that's why are eyes and ears are conflicting. Effectively the body things we've ingested something poisons. At which point the body defends itself by making you vomit to get the poison out of you. 

 

Nature, fuck YEAH!

Battlefront. It's just going to be a free downloadable VR mission for it. Bit cheeky of Sony to push it like it's a full game but it's meant to be really good.

 

I played this back at Gamescom and it was absolutely amazing :D

Surely Big Pharma have missed a huge opportunity here for including industrial quantities of travel sickness drugs in PSVR bundles?

You really need something you can angle towards you otherwise you have to sit bolt upright on the sofa which gets a bit uncomfortable after a while.

Eve Valkyrie is in the £40 bracket of games?! Seems rather expensive based on vids I've seen, is it really that substantial? 

 

It looks to me like the sort of game that would be in that bracket even without the VR.  Not 100% sure of the size of it though.

Yeah good point, only had a quick look, there may be something out there that would be more similar without costing too much though.

Someone linked to a Playstation magazine that came with an extra VR supplement earlier in the thread. Just put that under the back legs of the table.
