    Same for me, although I got out the cam recently for the Until Dawn "cheap shots" :)
    I will get the VR set anyways, so I'm glad I can dust of my move controllers again as well

    Not sure how long this has been up but I noticed that the PlayStation VR headset is now available for pre-order on Amazon for £350.00

    Time to blow the dust off my PlayStation Move gear.

    There are also a few articles floating around the web which loosely mention that Sony is looking into PC compatibility for the headset as well
    :woot:

    I saw an article earlier which stated that the new Star wars battlefront VR version will be a completely different game from the original. Assuming games have to run at 60 fps or else not get certified by Sony, then I can't see many current titles getting to VR without serious overhauls and I expect some sort of downgrade in order to hit the right performance targets. It may be VR but maybe not quite what we were hoping for.

    ifixit.com posted a tear down of the consumer version of the Oculus this week which shows off some of the tech behind the VR goggles.

    Oculus Rift CV1 Teardown

    Some interesting tech has gone into the construction of the Oculus

    I'm really interested in vr but will definitely need to try it first. Hopefully they'll have it at egx again in September. And I can get to try it :)

    I kind of agree with the fad comments however that didn't stop millions of people buying a wii or kinnect 2. Granted they were both cheaper but still. I'm still surprised at the amount of money people spend on replacing phones every two years. Also people spending lots of money monthly on 600 "free" minutes when they use it for half the time. So who knows.

    If Sony manage to keep positive buzz and have a great ad campaign word of mouth does wonders.

    I understand the criticisms @HERMAN_JELMET about under supported products. Conversely though surely Sony should be commended for pushing new experiences? Ultimately Sony won't know which products will resonate with customers. They are rarely compulsory so people don't have to buy into it if they don't want to?

    Resurrected from the dead like Count Dracul after centuries of dormancy.

    Quick question, Can you use the older square PS4 camera or do you need the newer rounded one?

    The old PS Eye? Nah, that was PS3 (as were the move controllers admittedly) and not precise enough. The new one has two cameras for depth perception.

    Haha! :)

    Just trying to think what other "killer apps" used the camera on day 1.

    Have to say, I'm little envious of your square eye now I've seen a picture, the new fangled one is a bit of a pain TBH! The lead is really stiff which makes positioning the camera a bit of a pain and as it is rounded, you can't really take it off the stand and mount on top of the telly without using a big wedge of the sticky stuff.
