    It costs the same as the original PSVR does

    PSVR when launched you needed to buy the separate camera and move controllers which jacked up the price to 500 bucks.

      This isn't a good thing. Considering it can't be used for pc or anything else, that price is a joke

        Well it worked for the first PSVR and nothing's changed.

        I actually believe it will be much easier to make this work on PC than the OG PSVR, since there is no shitty camera that you need to have drivers for, now its just the controllers and the headset.

    Maybe they should start producing more PS5s instead of releasing more hardware. You know, so people can actually buy their fucking headset.

      They'll just jack the price up to $800-900 because they know people are willing to buy it at that price just to get one, so it doesn't matter if they make more or not.

        The industry would either fucking die or become some Gucci shit, and the latter would make millions of people violently angry. I kinda wanna see it.

          As much as we want this to be true, it wont happen. People are already blowing that kind of money on a PS5, it's all just an experiment in supply & demand. They know they can get away with it and nobody will say a word, people will continue to spend it just to get it. Just how these things work, if people are willing to spend $800, why charge them not $500, start pricing it at $800. Once the PS6 comes around, they'll have it at that price point, do the same thing with supply, but this time the price will be jacked up to around $1200-1300 and people will still buy it, and it'll just keep getting worse and worse until they hit a breaking point, but that is many years from now, many.

    why is VR so expensive if every new controller has motion controls?

    • 4 weeks ago

      having a gyroscope inside a controller is not even remotely the same as accurately tracking the position and rotation of an object in 3d space

        >Some flashing IR LEDs , probably cost 10 cents or less per piece in bulk
        >2-3 USB IR cameras, also not that expensive when there aren't shortages
        The Oculus Rift does it this way and it works. Since the open source driver for that is coming along (Tried it, had a fairly glitchy time in beatsaber but opening my camera streams showed off how shit the connection was on 2 of my cameras so I'm waiting for better USB extension cords) you could probably make it accept more generic video and light sources.
        So in terms of hardware I would say it's not that much of a spike if you already had the cameras and just had to add a bunch of LEDs to the controller (in addition to the controller's cheap gyroscope and accelerometer).

      The tracking rings do seem particularly bad for doing the things you actually want to do in VR games.
