New bundle for the EU. Includes Astro Bot, Skyrim, Doom VFR, Wipeout and VR Worlds (all digital codes). That’s a pretty big and pretty good collection of games. Still doesn’t include the Move controllers though. 

 

Comes out Monday or Tuesday depending on the country. No word on the price though.

So i wasn't able to pull the trigger on a PSVR during Black Friday. However, I notice the Gamestop sells refurbed headsets for $149. I have the camera already and the games I currently have dont require Move controllers. Might be a good, cheap route to take without the high investment cost

Remember that first gen sets don’t pass HDR, if that matters to you. You’d have to switch cables to get that working. They have the mute power and volume on  the cord. Second gen has controls on headset itself. And hopefully they don’t switch the boxes during refurb since I think that is the part that would matter for HDR. Again, only if that is something you utilize.

The V1 and V2 boxes are not compatible with the other headsets, so there’s no worry of getting stuck with a V2 headset and V1 box. 

 

Personally I’d probably wait for another sale. They happen quite frequently. For an extra $50 you’d get brand new hardware, guarantee of V2 headset and a couple of games and you could sell a camera.

Picked up Dirt Rally and Battlezone today. Dirt Rally is totally intense. Dont know if I can go back to playing in non VR mode. I suck thought as it's much more difficult than Dirt 4. Any tips for assists? Battlezone is pretty fun also.

I don’t think Dirt Rally is that much more difficult than Dirt 4. The physics are similar, except for dry tarmac (which I think D4 does better). The stages in DR are definitely more difficult though. The auto-generated stages in D4 just don’t achieve the gnarly, unpredictable state that the hand crafted, true to life ones in DR do. 

 

If you’re playing with a wheel, I think one key is feathering the throttle to try and keep grip as much as you can. (I suppose that advice works for a controller, but I’ve never played it with one). Flooring the pedal for more then a second or two is bound to bring you trouble. 

 

I must say the game rewards sinking time into, though. Its goddam hard, but it’s fair and a blast when you get a feel for it.

As soon as I got this I haven't had as much time to play lately and it got added to the pile. Be curious to see what anyone here thinks if they give it a shot for the first time.
