    For a bit of fun I recorded my brothers first time in the rift. First up Oculus Dreamdeck followed by a spot of Project CARS - watch the volume at the start of the second one.

    So the MFs at Oculus cancelled my order without explanation, but a bit of searching shows that they probably thought I was trying to circumvent launch region restrictions (which is entirely correct as I was shipping it to a forwarder in the US).

    Then again, no big loss as I haven't even finished DOOM E1M2.

    I bought a PSVR

    GT Sport is phenomenal. Iím dying to try a Ďrealí sim in VR now, with more than one car on the track. For now, solo hotlapping is just fine. GTís VR showroom is fantastic; 1:1 scale racing cars in your living room!

    Wipeout Omega Cillection in VR is just insane. They really pull no punches here - no limits to the detail or how many vehicles are on track like in GT; the full game is here and available in VR. You can limit your FOV and restrict other sickness-inducing settings if you want to, but all these comfort measures are buried in an options menu. The default setup is pretty much how they intend it to be played and itís the craziest. Even the menus are a firehose to the senses. Itís easily a must-have VR game.

    Iíve also had a go at a few demos (Last Guardian is awesome) and mini games, but by far the coolest is the Star Wars Battlefront X-Wing VR Mission. 12 year old me is just endlessly creaming himself until he shrivels up like a sultana when he hops in the cockpit and goes shooting TIE Fighters that are suddenly as big as houses.

    In the not too distant future Iíll be picking up Rez Infinite, Dirt Rally VR, Tetris Effect and, erm, Drunkn Bar Fight on the PlayStation Store.

    If you can, spend some time with GT Sport getting acclimated. Dirt Rally VR was one of the first things I fired up on my Rift and I nearly vomited after about 15 seconds of it. I'm fine with it now, but that was a rough intro.

    Does it work for old people? If I hold my phone's screen a few inches away from my eyes it's all a blur

    Yeah Swervo, I’m taking baby steps at the moment. There’s been one or two times where I stopped *just* in case! I’m waiting for Dirt Rally to go on sale again so there’s plenty of time.

    Edit: I just checked the PlayStation Store and Dirt Rally and it’s VR add-on went on sale TODAY… ho-hoo, ha-haaa! *nervous laughter*

    I did about 6 laps of off-roading in GT, flying over jumps and performing lurid Scandinavian flicks, and it seemed fine. Negotiating tight corners while looking thru the driver’s side window is great fun! And hot damn, you can be so much more accurate. It’s incredible how much it improves your driving.

    These headsets have lenses in them that make the screen appear as though itís a few feet away from you, so donít worry. Theyíre compatible with glasses, too.

    PSVR will look blurry, but thatís because itís a single 1080p screen shared across two eyeballs, and youíre only directly seeing about 50% of that (the rest is filling your peripheral) so all images are massively scaled down.

    Blur might be intrinsic to VR devices for now, but it has nothing to do with Ďold peopleí vision or how far it is from your face.
