RUMOR: Sony to Reveal PS4 VR Headset at TSG


I hope this rumor turns out to be true since I already preordered a PS4. That & I won't have to worry about not getting The Elder Scrolls Online with Oculus Rift Support if the PS4 version also has Virtual Reality Support.

I wonder if they will have Oculus Rift compatibility for the PS4, It would be a smart move if they could make their brand as a cheaper alternative to OR, while allowing it to work with the PS4. This way MS can't sign a contract with them to exclusively work for X1.

Very interesting. Oculus Rift has been looking very promising lately.. A PS4 version could be awesome. Instead of MS's idea of IllumiRoom to simulate peripheral vision for FPS games, you could literally have peripheral vision in a game. Now the only problem is the eye strain involved with OR and I'm guessing Sony's VR.. headaches:

Half-Life 2 sounded amazing from what he wrote, but you'll most likely have a headache after the first hour that won't go away.

 

oh.. and we have this:

The game is so realistic that players are warned not to lean on virutal objects. lmao! XD I can imagine myself leaning forward and spilling my glass of water all over my laptop. XD

Thats a shame. It looked like it was going to be integrated into the kinect initially. I was really excited for it too. It was probably the main thing that got me excited about the new Xbox. Maybe next, next gen. :(

Yeah, but imagine in a generation or two it might become so much more and better, almost Holodeck like. I see this eventually becoming just straight projection with no TV involved. I also see competition arising from the concept. Sony will definitely be in the fray. In fact within the next 4 generations of console gaming, I predict Nintendo becoming strictly handheld, keeping its titles 1st part on that platform while licensing it out 3rd party for consoles, and perhaps even taking the lead on this holo tech as a 3rd party peripheral, while Google enters the console gaming market with Driodsole! XD

I'd imagine Amazon's console would be totally digital and all purchases would be download only. I don't see them spending money on hard copies so they will have to wait for the right gen to put that into place or at least close to it. They could be the company that makes it the standard. I could see Amazon and Google teaming up for a console on this one. Google would fund the hardware, while Amazon would manage the store and acquiring the intellectual property licensing. They would split the profits evenly while each would do what they do best in contracting. I wouldn't be surprised if Google had Samsung build the hardware for them. Samsung is behind the tech of Illumiroom after all.

This headset should be interesting. If Sony allows third parties to make this accessory, then Oculous Rift could be a potential alternative to the official Sony brand. Along with Valve supposedly making their own VR hardware for their Steam Machines, Xbox One seems like the odd man out.

I skimmed through articles today that had Xbox One rumored to get its own VR. 

 

Now if you really want to talk about The Odd Man Out that would be the Wii U as VR would probably be hard to use with a mandatory touch screen.

I think this accessory is far better than Kinect or Move. Its geared toward gaming and not a gimmick. The only question is how much will it cost? Will there be tiered models? The allowance of 3rd party would be big, because Turtle Beach would make one with their headset quality included.

      Holy cow there seems to be a subscription crate for everything now. AC Filters, Clothes, Bras, Candy, etc. I actually just signed up for Umai Crate. It seems to be the most unique and best value. Its just a box full of different Japanese instant ramens. I'll report if its any better than the cheap shitty ramen you can get at the grocery store. For $25 a month, the box seems to be full of 7-9 bags/boxes/cups of various types. If I'm not impressed with the first box, I'll cancel it and feel like it was worth trying something interesting. I watched a few youtube unboxings and taste tests and it seems to be pretty well received, even in the comments on their facebook posts. I recently had authentic ramen at a local hole in the wall and it was amazing. I always thought ramen was just that shitty Nissin stuff. Some of the videos I watched, its def a little more complex than just pouring hot water into noodles and a tiny spice packet. Some of them have multiple packets to enter in before and after water is added. And apparently there are suggested fresh add ons you can buy separately at the grocery store. Things you obviously can't dehydrate like hard boiled eggs.

      Being in the grocery business for over a decade and a half you see a lot of product flops, successes, bait & switches, and other flat out BS. In one year I watched Kellogg's decrease the size of their cereal box contents by .5oz-3oz multiple times. They kept the box height the same and made them marginally slimmer each time to make it less noticeable. When Eternal water first hit the shelves it was from "Natural Springs in Norway". One day a coworker noticed it tasted different, and then noticed the bottle now said "From a municipal water source in California". I've seen Edy's Ice Cream downsize their containers, and then return them to the old size a year later calling it "Now 20% more!" Nah, you just gave back what you took. The biggest scam of the century is Halo Top ice cream and everyone that's copying it. Halo Top is just jet puffed ice cream. Breyers makes their version, and now Ben & Jerry's is going to make their line of it. You're paying for deceptive portion control. The only reason they are "low calorie" is because there is less ice cream in the cup. Since a pint is by volume and not by actual weight, most people fall for the this trick. You're paying the same, if not more money for the ice cream version of a bag of chips half filled with air. Don't support this crap. Just get regular ice cream and eat less per serving. On a final note, Breyers doesn't even call their product ice cream anymore. Its "Frozen Dairy Dessert". WTF I'm glad I have access to Blue Bell. Its still a half gallon, and its still ice cream. http://www.mouseprint.org/2013/01/21/breyers-converts-ice-creams-to-frozen-dairy-desserts/

      I've owned 3 cars now. My first car was a 1993 Nissan Maxima. It had 110k miles on it and it served me well until 215k miles. An alternator and a break hose were the only major repairs I've ever had to have done on it. Then I got a 2004 Mazda3 which also served me well from 11k miles to 80k miles, a fuel purge sensor was the only major repair I ever had to do on it. I'd still have it if some kid didn't pull out in front of my and total it. With the insurance check I should have just put a nice down payment on a brand new car... but at the time I didn't want a car note so I got the only thing I could find... a 2004 Ford Mustang. It had less miles than my Mazda so I figured it was like I just had this car all along since it was the same year. Wrong, its been the biggest POS I've ever owned. I've had to have the power steering pump replaced twice, major exhaust work twice, serpentine belt, entire ABS system, read axle, front calipers, CV joint, motor fan, and the transmission that was put in to replace the already busted on they tried to sell the car with, is about to go out again... to top it all off the paint just started crumbling off the car and now its rusting. I bought it with 65k miles and now it has 116k miles. Now that my college loan is almost finally paid off, I'm looking to get a brand new Honda Civic or VW Golf. The Civic is a car I've always wanted since wanting a car, but the Golf is very nice and has more horsepower. I'll never buy another ford car again. I remember when my exhaust system basically fell off the car because the manifold cracked... the muffler shop I went to basically said "Yeah this is pretty common at 90k miles for this car" which I was pretty much at... wtf. Screw Ford. I've never had so many catastrophic failures with a vehicle.

      I'm sick of winter. This crap needs to end. Another day of driving on snow/ice covered roads in zero degree temps that are so cold the rock salt wont melt anything. Its like every road is made of gravel and my car is bouncing all over the place. At least the tall hill roads are getting treated with strong as hell rock salt of a different blend to ensure melting and to prevent accidents. But all other streets are complete ass to drive on.
