So, that's real then, eh? Question is whether it'll be a failed gimmick or whether it'll actually take on. Looks disorienting to use. Still, people chided Wii motion controls and condemned Kinect not to survive, but they're obviously still kicking. So, how much time until there's a wacky Kojima game on this VR headset?

I remember saving these two images in relation to Kojima and VR...
He posted these images on his Twitter account way back at the beginning of this year, so he's definitely been looking into VR it seems?

One is obviously Kojima trying out the Oculus Rift DK1...

The other is Snake's long time Japanese VA playing MGSV:GZ with some kind of Sony device on his head!
(maybe it was a Morpheus prototype or something similar?)

So who knows what the future holds for Kojima and VR??? :mrgreen:

Isn't PSVR garbage compared to Rift and Vive?

Basically all the HMD's are the same more or less...I'll spare the details...

If I didn't have a PC / HMD already (Oculus) etc., and I only had a PS4 I'd totally go PS4 VR!
They have some great content coming, and it's more affordable/easier to use (technically) than PC VR.

What I'd call garbage is the so called VR of Google Cardboard...that shit is junk...TOTALLY NOT VR IMHO!

Of course the PC is where it's at for VR now, and in the future, as it's an unlimited platform already...
The PS4 / Xbox One's life cycles are supposed to last for 10 years...In less than half that time they will be obsolete compared to a PC.
So they will miss out by default on the tech/VR advances made during that time, and those advances are going to be HUGE.

I haven't actually tried Gear VR, but it is "technically" an official Oculus VR headset...
As to why you got a headache there are many possible reasons for that (see spoiler below) which is a general fear / problem associated with VR.

*WARNING VR NERD SHIT INCOMING*

Spoiler:
I'd say Gear VR is better than Google Cardboard based on what I know about it's specs etc., so I say it is "technically" VR, but not VR for my own reasons.
Just like how I feel about 360 videos / photos being called VR (it's NOT, but it is better to view them in VR due to scale/depth), anything without Position Tracking to me isn't really VR.

To me an HMD (Head Mounted Display / VR headsets) MUST have Positional Tracking, otherwise when you lean/move around it doesn't translate that, and your brain freaks out which makes one ill.
Now you can still get "sick" (headache, or other symptoms) with Positional Tracking due to low frame rates, as it also causes a disconnect between what you are doing/what your brain expects.

If you drop the frame rate in VR to the point of "stuttering" frame rates you feel drunk basically, and that will make you sick (like when really drunk). Which is why solid frame rates matter in VR.
I can tolerate very low frame rates, but once it hits "stutter mode" (below 20 FPS or less) I even start to get sick.

I've also been "sick" while earning my "VR Legs" (a term us VR heads use), as it's the only way to explain the mental disconnect your brain has to go through/develop when it's new to VR.
Think of Neo from The Matrix...most gamers may want to, but simply can't just do a 4 hour VR gaming session for their very first time in VR...(Load up the training program Tank!) we all can't be Neo on day one of VR lol!

I experienced 2 weeks of "side effects" ranging from AMAZINGLY vivid dreams, motion sickness while watching TV (which has never been the case for me even on a boat/plane/car), etc.
I felt it was very strange, but luckily I had done my research on VR, and read about similar experiences, and the "side effects" went away once my brain adjusted to VR.

On a side note : Having an HMD correctly setup for your IPD (Interpupillary Distance) matters as well to help accurately simulate what your eyes see, and an incorrect IPD can make you sick also.
These days (nearly 2 years of VR) I'm Neo, and don't get sick. I've played an 8 hour session (with breaks every 2 hrs) in VR, but you have to learn / earn that status (Your VR Legs).


For "proper" current VR people should stick to experiencing it through the BIG 3 of HMD's : Playstation VR, Oculus Rift, and Valve's Vive. :mrgreen:

Yet another recent image of Kojima + VR...

This time he's again using the Oculus Rift CV1, and him checking out a mysterious project at DICE (Makers of : Mirrors Edge / The Battlefield series).
It really makes me think that Kojima is working on VR support for his new project, or that he certainly will make a VR compatible game soon...I'm so HYPED! :mrgreen:

NOTE : I've renamed the thread's topic, since I've basically been posting ALL Kojima VR images related to the PSVR, and other HMD's in here lol!
