    That's a shame. You should flog it, especially if nothing shown of Touch tickles your fancy. While there's still value in it.

    I'm in.

    Rez, Battlezone, Star Wars mission, Drive Club and some other I probably haven't thought of.

    If memory serves correctly then there's going to be/is a new camera and move controllers?

    Edit: Got a Pro on order as well.

    Expensive few months.

    The new camera and moves have the same functionality as the old ones. I picked up 2 moves for 30 at CEX.

    Also looking forward to Star Wars VR Mission but as it is a Rogue One tie-in I think we'll probably have to wait until December for it unfortunately.

    I've got a trial booked at their live demo tour next month in London. I'm sceptical to be honest, but willing to be impressed!

    We've got a launch rift at work and while it's cool, it's almost a novalty item and no one really bothers with it anymore. The only thing of worth I've really played on it is Elite, that in VR is brilliant.

    How do you book a place? I've seen this tour mentioned in a few places but never with a booking link.

    What games are people getting? I like the look of battlezone
    Im going to try the demo disk first but I'm swaying towards battlezone and eve at the moment.

    And also Batman as it's only 16 quid. Driveclub is also a definite but will probably give it a few weeks.

    Does everyone have their US account set up so they can download the 18 demo version?

    I think there's been work done on the wheel force feedback for DriveClub for the VR version, which is good because using a wheel with the standard game is awful.

    Got mine pre-ordered with Shopto along with RIGS and VR Worlds.

    I did have Arkham VR pre-ordered too, however I've only just realised that it's disappeared.....it's not for sale on Amazon either.

    Not sure what happened there?

    I tried the PSVR at a little demo thing-a-ma-jig, and it's really good, and great fun: Farpoint in particular stands out as a really damn good shooter, if a little simple in demo form.

    THAT BEING SAID, I sympathize with the concerns people have. I would definitely feel a little more confident if there were a couple more proper, 100% games out for it. As it stands, I going to use the months leading up to it's release to internally debate whether it's worth picking up.

    Yeah I totally get that it's a gamble but i'm just ready for something new. I have come to terms with the fact that it will probably be obsoleted within a couple of years, but I intend to enjoy it while it lasts.

    And as someone else mentioned it's idiots like me that pave the way for better and cheaper technology down the road.

    I've only had a quick go on the Rift, so it's encouraging seeing the mostly positive reviews of PSVR.

    It's released in a little under three weeks. Whether you'll be able to pick it up on 13th October is a different matter.

    Is DriveClub VR a retail release?

    Can't find it on ShopTo.

    Anyway, I haven't preordered one but have been dropping plenty of hints.

    Hopefully get one for christmas from the wife.

    It does have a Playstation Move/Kinect whiff about it.

    Similar situation, but I may keep it, still undecided.

    Not sure about 250 profit though, seems a bit high. What are you basing that on?

    It's tough to call.

    Pre-orders have sold out - Amazon and Shopto have no more stock and are limiting PSVR to 'one per customer', so they are going to be tricky to buy probably until 2017.

    It all depends if they take off and become the 'must have' thing for Christmas. If Sony manage to successfully market PSVR to kids and it's top of a lot of Christmas lists.....they could go for big money on eBay.

    Anyone who's interested, GAME are demoing it and you can book slots now.

    Got mine booked for Friday 7th October at 11.00-11.30 am.

    Can you book online or just local store? I'm tempted to save it for a big wow on release day but the sensible part of me is saying I should try before I fork out the cash

    It's on the Sony VR website. Saw a Twitter link for GAME and there are a few other places where it's being shown.

    I wear glasses so I definitely want to try it out. Battle zone and PSVR is also at the Play Expo at Event City near the Trafford centre that weekend.

    Thanks. Just booked one in London on the 9th. Not sure I'll go though and ruin the surprise

    Apparently GAME are still claiming they'll be able to fulfil preorders on release day. On the downside that would mean dealing with GAME...

    I told myself I wouldn't pre-order, kept up the pretence for a few weeks and then caved. Amazon are currently estimating they'll deliver it by Monday 18 November. Hopefully my neighbour will be able to take the delivery.

    I've pre-ordered it with VR Worlds, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood and Super Stardust. I'm actually really excited about Rush of Blood, despite the fact it looks nothing like Until Dawn - horror plus light-gun action plus roller coaster in VR sounds like a winning combination.

    Has anybody heard any news on Elite being released for the PS4?.

    The thought of Elite+psvr+pro enhancements is gaming nirvana to me.

    Yes, the developer did say that it is coming to PS4 but that the Xbox One version was a timed console exclusive.

    I have no idea how long that runs for but it's been on Xbox for a while hasn't it? Probably timed quite nicely for PSVR.
