Thank god walmart had their pick up dispensary right as you walk in the door. Didn't have to venture too far into that place. Tho the girl did have to run back somewhere to grab my order for some reason......
Come to think of it. She didnt even ask me for ID or to see my confirmation email. Told her i was picking up an order, gave her a name, she saw that name, and said let me go get that for you!

Should have just mentioned another name. Lol. That's a big fail on their part.

Played thru the RE demo again w/ these on. The 3D audio definitely works as advertised. Demo was definitely less creepy 2nd time around, tho I did a little more exploring this time before going downstairs w/ the courtyard key, and this time one of the witches popped up before I even went downstairs, which didn't happen the first time, so that still got me :LOL:

The headphones themselves so far are very comfortable. Kinda wish they'd block out a LITTLE more outside noise, but its not horrible. I do have the volume turned up to almost max. That demo really isnt a good showcase for these headphones overall audio quality, so I think i'll play some Valhalla now and see how that goes. I do have it sitting on the miles morales icon on my home screen right which is playing some music w/ decent bass, and it sounds good, but nothing earth shattering.

Played some Valhalla w/ these. These things are definitely decent, but still probably cant compete w/ higher end brands. Which, for $100 I wouldnt really expect them to. They wont replace a good surround system, but they're good for what they do. Unfortunately there is no way to play sound thru the headphones and a surround system simultaneously. Which kinda sucks, but oh well. I'll break them out for games that would really take advantage of the 3D audio system.

That's the exact problem I have. Only wya I can do so (splitting sou d between headset and surrou d sound) is by using a hdmi w/optical splitter. The only key advantage is the option of changing the chat and game volume (which is a plus for me). Thanks for the update.

Sony announced their next gen PSVR headset today!!



..............but it wont be launching until 2022.


I do like the improvements they're discussing so far tho.

“We’re taking what we’ve learned since launching PS VR on PS4 to develop a next-gen VR system that enhances everything from resolution and field of view to tracking and input,” Nishino said. “It will connect to PS5 with a single cord to simplify setup and improve ease-of-use, while enabling a high-fidelity visual experience.”

Nishino said that Sony is working on a new VR controller that will “incorporate some of the key features found in the DualSense wireless controller, along with a focus on great ergonomics.” The current PlayStation VR system supports the DualShock 4 and PlayStation Move controllers, a technology that dates back to the PlayStation 3 era.
That single cord connection is going to be HUGE. It's one of the reasons I don't bust mine out that much, I just hate setting up that rats nest of cables just to play a game for a couple hours and then tear it all down again.

I agree with the cables. Especially with a 3 year old that likes to run around the house and not give a damn. :rofl: Looking forward to it. Glad they finally jumped on the ball instead of putting it off for a while since AR/VR/MR is becoming a huge market right now.

Finally got one and set it up on Monday. The controller alone is amazing. Played some Astro and it is an amazing controller demo platformer. LOL.

Then I booted up some Miles Morales and will be working on that for awhile. Got the Ultimate edition as well so Ill swing back into 2018 Spiderman after.

I was the same way. LOL. My friend told me about the Walmart drops. Apparently they were doing 10 minute drops cause it was going out of stock and erroring out almost immediately and then would return in 10 minutes one minute after going live. I started at 2PM on Thursday and didnt get one until the 2:50 drop. I also read you want to scroll down a bit so the add to cart and error/out of stock button line up so you can just mash. So I did and it worked. LOL.
