    Has anyone got one?

    I had been toying with the idea for a while and on Saturday I thought fuck it so I traded 3 old consoles in(SNES - N64 and Gamecube) and ordered one!

    Never played on one but the reviews all seem really good.

    Can anyone recommend any games?

    Yes but I must admit I rarely use it. To me it's become a dust gathering gadget.
    On the plus side it's a great idea and some of the games are very good (Resi Evil 7 - had to stop playing in VR though due to motion sickness, Farpoint (better with gun accessory), Job Simulator (probably my favourite), Bravo Team (again ideally need the gun accessory). Astro Bot looks amazing but not tried it get. Not really got many others.

    Is it one of those things like a Wii where the novelty wears off/

    it will definitely get used, if not by me the lad will. He currently spends half his lift playing fifa on the switch.

    I read somewhere about a football VR game...?

    Not sure. There are some football mini-games but not really tried them. Have a look on the Playstation Store as most of the available games/experiences are there.

    Yep similar to the comments, it’s very very good but if I play on PS4 I tend to want to pick up the pad rather than mess around with it all. It’s a great bit of kid so if you are convinced that it would be used then it’s worth it. You will also need the wands etc so it’s not cheap. Skyrim is good but not really for kids

    It sounds like the thing on the Xbox where it picks up movement. Used that a few times.

    Nah this is much better than the Xbox connect. The connect definitely had a shelf life like Wii etc

    Really interested in PSVR, solely for Resident Evil 7 as I've heard it's scary as fook with the VR?

    I'm looking to 'try before you buy' type deal, so I'll try CEX perhaps!?

    The PSVR is quality - it amazes me every time I use it, the detail in Gran Turismo when you are sitting in the drivers seat is fantastic. Only issue with it all is... it makes me sick

    Yep that game is freaky as fook on VR especially when he chases you!
