For people who are thinking of buying one and have no idea what to expect
1 August 2017
Okay so if you're thinking of buying a VR, and come here to look for reviews, primarily you are going to find two types: Those from tech savvy people who complain that the graphics aren't great and that there a number of technical faults, but despite this for the money it is a great piece of kit. And then there are those who are completely in awe, and pretty much say that the whole thing cannot be described and must be experienced first hand to understand what all the fuss is about. Prior to buying my own headset I found both types of reviews very unhelpful. You see when VR headsets were first announced, I assumed it would be like simply playing a first person game up closer than usual with the ability to turn your head and look around. What I did not expect was to be transported into a 3D environment with surroundings that looked like you could actually touch them and amazing 3D sound. It is seriously like being inside a movie with the action happening around you. It is true that the graphics might not be as good as those you're used to playing from the TV, but if you are still able to get as immersed as I did, you will not care. As for getting nauseous, I imagine that is going to be different for everyone. The worst thing can sometimes be moving forward whilst your feet remain stationary outside of the game. I actually found walking on the spot to simulate movement, actually helps a lot. Also if there is ever a chance to turn around using the control stick, do not do it, instead actually turn your whole body. The more real physical movements you can synchronise with the game, the less nauseous you will become. Also it is advisable to only play for 30-45 mins at a time. Strangely enough, I feel that time does feel longer when you're in there. Overall if you are thinking of getting a PSVR, I highly recommend that you do.
