    Google might be planning a game console

    Movie streaming is one way. Streaming movies only needs speed, not low latency. No amount of upgrades to internet tech can solve that problem for out of the way customers.

    13 years.....Time to call it quits

    It's not just this forum. It's forums in general. The only forums still going strong are those forums that turn up on google when you have a tech problem that say "We already answered this, no we won't link you to it, Google it." I''m pretty sure Web forums are getting phased out in favor of...

    Google might be planning a game console

    Streaming only is a terrible idea. It's not as though the entire world lives close enough to a major node for this to be feasible, lag-wise. Then there's people who live in places with iffy relationships with games in the first place... China, for instance. I could be eating crow in 5 years...

    (UPDATE: two new patents!) Sony files patent for wireless PS VR headset

    Which one, by chance? Gotta say, though. It was difficult not to just respond "Sounds like a personal problem." There could be a lot of improvements to VR tech in general, but "I can't stand stuff on my head" is pretty rare. Most people forget it's there until they pull on wires moving or...

    Astro Bot....

    Loved Robot Rescue, so Astrobot will be great when I can get it. It's on my wishlist.

    Just bought a used PSVR

    Cool. Glad it worked out for you. I no longer buy anything used that's that expensive (especially electronics). I suppose if I ever bought a car, I'd have to buy used, but that day hasn't come yet and may never. I bought a used PS3, and the person didn't pack it properly, so it bounced around...

    The Persistence does all it can to help alleviate VR sickness

    Don't get motion sickness, so I can't quite empathize with this, but it's good that games do things to avoid it. More options are always good. Of course, I think most people with motion sickness can cure it by slow exposure.

    Could we see Dragon Quest VR on PS VR?

    I kind of think Squ'eenix doesn't get VR. Know what I'd love? Mervils-like DQB VR game with optional first person mode that became more like Minecraft. I'd pay good money for that if I had money to pay. EDIT: Sorry, went by the second vid. Didn't realize this was an in-person group thing...

    Editing posts

    I rely on the edit button because I always forget to I also tend to post my gut feelings about stats and then go check them afterword, so I can post accurate ones. I really rely on the edit button.

    Sony expects to see a lot of new PS VR game releases this year

    VR will always be at least half a generation behind... Just the nature of it. VR uses more resources. I doubt we'll see 4k VR games, though an upgrade that' s more along the lines of Vive or Oculus Rift CV is possible. Maybe some other upgrades. Also, what happened to my avatar? It used to be a...

    Dreams will let you build and share your own PS VR games

    Back when LBP1 came out, they didn't quote deliver on their initial promises but LBP was still pretty awesome. LBP2 basically delivered on all the promises they made for LBP1. I expect something similar here. It'll still be great, and people will create lots of amazing stuff for it, but at least...

    Skyrim VR

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PmUWZN2NBBI Skyrim is hitting PSVR. I'm excited. Despite a slow launch, this is a good year for VR fans like me. Farpoint, Bridge Commander, and Skyrim.

    Ad-based redirect

    I just had an ad redirect me to a purchase page after I clicked "Forum" on the main PSU page. If that was the advertiser's fault, I'd get new advertisers. That's not cool. It's that "Sexy Brutale" ad.

    Still waiting for Youtube 1.9

    Who has the 1.09 update for youtube on PS4 (that brings PSVR support with 360 videos)? I saw news about it and got really excited, but it still won't download. Still stuck on 1.08. Some even say they're stuck on 1.07. Does anybody here have it?

    Brought PSVR to a party

    A friend and I brought our PS4s + PSVRs to a party. It was a huge success, except for one girl who got really angry at her fiance for playing and complained loudly "WHY DO BOYS LIKE VIDEO GAMES!?" which made me a bit angry, especially since the sex distribution was pretty even that night, and...
