    Didn't have this COVID thing either. All in all, not too bad sales wise given the conditions;

    Agreed, Covid, Ukraine and both effecting the Chinese economy. The downside to global economies being so closely linked.

    I'm not spending $550 for more beta hardware that will trickle out games at 10 a year. The system without any head trickery can barely get games out the door. I understand the price because of the hardware. I just don't have any belief the software will be there to show off the hardware much. VR is such an afterthought at this point. And the games are so limited. Everything tends to be on the rails and held by the hand.

    Maybe when it comes down to $300 and has a decent library in a few years.

    New patch for GT7 bring a track with corners you cant see until you go past them, a BMW M2 thats just a slower M3 and the Sierra Cosworth RS500 that is super nostalgic but handles like an overloaded barge.
    Possibly a bump in AI logic as in a race last night two AI controlled cars span off while entering corners too fast at Spa.

    I play with a controller on PC for most 3rd person games. No issues playing the latest gow on PS5.

    They should have planned native PC support at launch through SteamVR. It would be the best general PCVR headset, and might have even gotten a few additional PS5 purchases from people that already have PSVR2. I have no plans on buying a PS5 and would get Xbox if I wanted a console now, but if I had PSVR2 on my PC and got bored of PCVR, I would have considered buying a PS5. I have a G29 FFB racing wheel that I bought for PC, and I'd carry that over to a PS5 also, if I had a reason to buy one :p

    But nope, they tie it to a single console, don't allow PSVR2 to work with PSVR1 games, have it priced as-much as the console and make it a $1000+ entry, and then there's the gamble that enough PSVR2 games are released to make it worthwhile.

    I have a hard time buying into VR. I tried several years back. It's just not ready. But I agree, if this was compatible with PC it would make me more interested than I am. I've just seen too many promises of "this version will be better and have more support" with various technology to buy into it. But I hope they follow through. I actually enjoyed nvidias 3d glasses/nvision more than I have any VR stuff. That was a fun piece of hardware to tinker with.

    Im the same with DCS Flight Sim, all the VR guys swear its the best thing but to me its not ready, immersive yes but minecraft graphics or pedestrian framerates for me take away the enjoyment. Im happy flying on a 32" 4k screen at 100fps while being able to seee the HOTAS and keyboard.

    After sometime not being able to play due to baby and what not I am so happy to be back to my PS5.

    I gave up PC gaming because it was consuming way too much of my time and also it can be pricey considering my new family member.

    Played a few rounds of BF5 last night on the couch and I forgot how smooth it is on the PS5. The vibration on these new controllers is so cool too.

    Also, can anyone recommend a good wireless headset for the PS5? or is the official one good enough?

    Feel good. Wanted to share my vibes.

    I have the original headset and I’m quite happy with it :). It if you need a better one, just go with the
    SteelSeries Arctis 7P+ - Wireless Gaming Headset :D has full PS5 support I think

    Thanks. I ended up getting the original. They work very well and I'm happy that we can change the EQ as well. They are very comfy too! stick nicely without giving me pain.

    Good choice:) they are quite good, and I am very happy with the performance, the only drawback is that they are not loud enough in some situations.
