As ResetEra is launching, here's a first draft of the PSVR OT. I'll be refining it and adding content as soon as possible.
For an invite quote the reserved post underneath the OT. A discord link invite should show up.
Do I need a PS4 Pro for VR to work?
No. But most games look better on it. But they should run just as fine on the regular PS4.
Should I get the aim controller?
If you can afford it and find one, absolutely.
I'm new to VR. What games should I start with?
It depends on your taste. But don't jump into Resident Evil 7, Farpoint or one of the driving games right away. Start with smaller, less intense experiences and build your VR legs. Once you get used to VR, you can start looking at more intense games.
Static experiences that are part of PSVR Worlds, Statik, any of the gallery shooters like Pixel Gear and even Batman: Arkham VR are good first experiences. If you don't mind horror and like roller coaster, you could try Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, especially since it's free with PS+ in November.
I'm having trouble with tracking, help!
1- Avoid having any reflective material in the room, or at least visible by the camera.
2- Avoid having any light sources, the darker the room, the better it is. Also this might help with with light bleeding.
3- Leave your PSVR on a FLAT surface when it is booting up for at least 30 seconds to a minute. This is the most important part, this solves wobbling and drift. Drift/Wobble again? Take it off and flat surface again for 30 secs. Do not turn off your PSVR and on again everytime you're facing problem, it will just reset the calibration, so just take it off and leave it on a flat surface.
4- Drift/wobble? Leave it on a flat surface again
5- If you have any tracking issue, calibrate it. Make sure your PS4 is not booted from rest mode. Do a restart/turn off and turn on. This is VERY important too.
6- For standing experience, you probably want to adjust the camera for a wider field of view. For sitting, try to sit as close as possible and adjust the camera to a lower place, seated head level. Camera should be set up left lens as the center point, this is very important, focus ONLY on the left lens. Try to be as center as possible from the camera point of view. Standing experience try to have at least head level camera and better if it's higher, pointing down. Stand at least 4.5-5 feet away from camera.
PS4 should boot up from powered off/restart, DO NOT start your VR session from a PS4 rest mode. Leave your PSVR on a FLAT surface when it is booting up.
I'm looking for a new game. Which one should I get?
- Check this thread! We ran a survey and this is Era's favorites!
Oops, ask it in the thread and I’m sure someone will be happy to help.
