would be amazing! I just got the ps4 vr for black Friday. Was playing a demo where you're in a 20 foot mech, think it was Battle Rigs. Anyway was thinking how incredibly immersive that would be to play Battlefield in vr. Anybody tried vr and thought the same?

    I know this is the upcoming trend, but as soon as VR gets here (for the majority of games) I'm out!

    Only if I can still use conventional controls and dont have to stand up and wave my arms around. Then it would be awesome. Looking at Skyrim on PS VR on you tube reviews and that is not how I want to play VR.
    Only problem for me is VR gives me terrible motion sickness.

    The only problem with VR is you need to feel like your moving with the game, otherwise motion sickness sets in. I definitely think VR is the future of gaming. At least it will be once motion sickness is solved and fast paced first person shooters become viable.

    Current VR games are slow and clunky. Most of them teleport you around the game in order to avoid motion sickness.

    It would be awesome being immersed in BF1 VR without any of the gameplay being dumbed down. Or losing your lunch.

    You know, when I first heard about fallout VR I was actually pretty excited. Then I saw that it was just a disembodied gun floating around and that kinda killed it for me. Somehow felt less immersive then just playing it on a tv. Not to mention that it was also awkward and jarring.

    If that’s the sort of experience I could expect from battlefield VR I think I’ll just stick to playing it normally. Maybe in a few years, when the tech has had time to bed in, it will be a worthwhile experience. At the moment it seems to be a gimmick.

    I dont' get the excitement. Let's say VR gets super realistic in coming years (which I don't believe) we should stay away from it. Imagine young people have this all-encompassing experience (based on the idea that they enjoy it) except the act of taking a life itself. What a horrible idea! Unless you're in the armed forces and it's your job of course. Luckily a FPS like BF1 has a lot of unrealistic aspects. It better stay like that. The concept of 'killing' in leisure circumstances should stay abstract otherwise we really enter dodgy territories.

    Or it goes the other way and we end up with a surge in the number of PTSD sufferers.

    VR is not hitting sales expectations. It will go the way of 3D TV unless there is some serious investment. Why would Sony do that after the very poor sales so far?

    You're wrong. VR is only going to get better. Immersion is the main goal of entertainment and VR is the path of least resistance at this point.

    Sony put a brave face on it. Best estimates is that they have sold 1m units worldwide. The AAA game studios will not invest in a total games market with a maximum market size of 1m. Its just not worth it.

    I hope it IS successful - but there is a along way to go to get momentum needed so that it becomes more than a gimmick. Immersion is great, but I can assure you that it is NOT the main goal of entertainment companies. Making money is the main goal of entertainment companies.

    There is a gun controller for vr now and I would like to try it out with a game called Farpoint.
    I was going to take the vr unit back yesterday since most of the games caused me to be dizzy and a little queasy. I was a bit upset because some of the demos I tried were very cool. Well I tried using Dramamine yesterday an hour before trying it again, and it worked, no motion sickness. Even when doing barrel rolls in Eve Valkrye!.
    Anyway I am a fan of 3d with certain movies , and a fan of vr with certain games. I don't want to play everything in vr but I hope it sticks around for awhile.

    I find VR pretty passée on the whole (possible bias from the awful arcade VR games you got in the 90s admittedly) but Total Immersion gaming would be incredibly interesting. I'm thinking along the lines of the holo-deck in Star Trek.

    So is that holi deck worth checking out?
    There is this demo on one of the free demo discs that got me to thinking about bf in vr. Can't remember the game right now but at the beginning a plane flies over and around you and I thought it would be very cool in a fps game.

    One of the biggest driving factors in the success of 'gaming' is the fact you are immersed in an artificial experience whilst SITTING DOWN. Whilst is sure would be fun to play an FPS VR, I would never be doing it for hours like I do now online gaming. However, VR has massive potential for educational roles, therapy, medicine and most definitely porn IMO.

    I was on vacation in the Black Hills in South Dakota a couple years ago, and there's a place you can play a zombie shooter in 7D (I think it was). I took the kids to it and it was pretty cool, even if you're not into zombies. Id rather see games go in that direction personally, but I'm admittedly just against goofy headsets. It would be very expensive to get the experience they have into your home, but I could do without a couple dimensions to cheapen it up. Don't really need the wind or chairs that move in six directions.

    How about Real-Reality where a bunch of you fat pimple-faced punks join the actual Army and go kill the enemy? How bad do you want total immersion? B)

    Ah sorry bud but I was talking about the actual TV show (think it was in Next Generation?) rather than a game.

    Hey no problem.
    Well for anyone who hasn't tried vr yet, it's at least worth checking out. It isn't for everyone. But there are some cool games and some not so good.

    I',m assuming that this means you have served IRL.

    Based on your BF performance, I guess you must have missed the combat training part. What were you doing? Flipping the burgers for the real soldiers?

    For anyone that has experimented with VR games for a while, does the motion-sickness effect begin to diminish as you get acclimated? And if it does, do you have to go through that phase each time you play a few rounds in VR?

    Just curious - not sure I want to make the investment for something I won't enjoy.
