Here are some unboxing pics of the new PSVR bundle package



The main box everything comes in. Thin cardboard shell which contains two other none descript plain white boxes. The larger box has a clear plastic band around it which I assume is there to help pull the larger white box out. It's very tightly packaged.




The smaller of the two white boxes contains two move controllers, two individually packaged disks (on Playstation VR worlds and the other a Playstation VR Demo disk) along with the PS4 camera, various cables and two white instruction booklets



The larger white box opens into compartmentalized smaller packaged blue boxes and a large blue Playstation booklet.


Digging deeper

There are two small boxes on either side with a separator in the middle which looks like another box but is not.


The smallest of the boxes holds nothing more than a single power cable while the other box contains the Break Away box and another power cable which looks to have an inline power brick. Everything is individually housed in its own protective clear plastic bags. Some of the components also have clear stickers directly on them which will need to be removed.


The breakaway box is a lot smaller than I thought, it is quite tiny and light. The breakaway box looks to be two parts combined with the smaller of the two section being able to slide back from the main part and exposing cable inputs or outputs ... IDK, I've yet to hook this up.




The Headset

The headset sits at the bottom in a foam insert which adds some shock absorbent for shipping. It's wrapped in a fairly thick gray film which you can't see though or really make out the shape of the headsets features.


once the protective film is removed you are greeted to the headset itself. Its very pleasing to look at. The edges are rounded and smooth, very pleasing to look at and not at all intimidating. Its covered in clear stickers you will have to remove.









The lens has a protective film over them and will need to be removed. You could not put this on and not notice the protect film over the lens. Interestingly enough there is a fair about of debris trapped between the lens and the film. I think i see an actual chunk of wood trapped between the lens and film and there are a number of other particals of ... stuff trapped on both lens.

First impressions

The box bundle was a lot heavier then I thought it would be when grabbing the bag off the counter top in the store but not as large as the pics id seen posted online. I was expecting to get a box about the same dimensions as say a RockBand bundle with the guitars and games and drums in but the box was a lot smaller. I was a bit disappointed as the price point makes my mind think BIGGER BOX NEEDED TO JUSTIFY

The headset has more heft to it than I thought it would, not heavy but also not light and cheap feeling.
The headset looks to have a coarse fabric which could perhaps absorb moisture but it has lots of thick padding everywhere. There are dials and buttons and other stuff on it which I have no idea the use for.

My personal views

I have been saving my VR cherry for a Vive or Oculus passing up google cardboard and other VR setups as not to taint my first experience with VR. That said I am not new to 3D and own several 3d tv's which we use as much as possible. I also have a 3d vision ready PC, Fuji W3 camera of taking my own 3d pics and video which I do a lot of. I am thinking its going to be a blend of that experience with reduced image quality.

I really wanted to get a vive but honestly, my PC now is as old as dirt requiring me to do some fairly expensive upgrades to work as I would want it to. I expect the visual quality to be much lesser and are bracing myself and expecting the worst with PSVR ie subpar graphics and a general lack of visual content as the PS4 simply does not have the HP to push wonderful VR. I also have to remember I have two children who care less about HD graphics and content and are able to just enjoy the experience for what it is. PSVR is also 1/2 the price of a vive before I even start adding up PC upgrades to run it as I would want ... MAXED OUT.

Kind of a band unboxing and little summary but it gets the info out there for you guys. Enjoy

I'm off to hook all this stuff out and try VR for the first time

Congratulations on your purchase buddy... I envy you smile.gif

Wİll you buy the PS4 Pro or stick with the original PS4??

I just read a review of Driveclub VR and they were complaining that the graphics are really bad compared to the original game... Though the experience is smooth. Which makes me believe that PS4 Pro can make the game look better in VR.

Thanks iARDAs, im pretty excited

I really dont think ill buy a pspro, I expect a subpar experience even with the pro so upgrading would not take me from OH COOL BEANS to HOLY CRAP MY MINDS BEEN RIPPED OUT CANT TELL THE DIFFENCE TO REAL LIFE but that said I do like the smell of new electronics so later down the line perhaps. Ill see how the kids react to it and honestly that reaction is the biggest factor to my getting a pspro.

the ps4 pro wont change the resolution...all vr looks worse because all vr has a screen right up on your face. The PS4 Pro wont change it that much.

Oh the resolution can be the same but better ttextures will certainly help though... We shall see lol rolleyes.gif


So PS4 Pro is coming on November 10th here in Turkey as well. Will pre order right away.

PSVR though is avalable in January for us. So gotta wait more.


ALL PSVR games in 2016

To sell the VR they should really update PS4 games for PS4 pro,might be able to match PS4 graphics on VR using ps4 pro.

Driveclub VR not going to PS4 Pro which is a bit daft imo

I played DriveClub yesterday and I have to say, the graphics are quite bad. The resolution is so low, and there is no antialiasing, It is basically sub-PS3 graphics. I haven't played GT on a PS2 in a while, but that's sort of where DriveClubVR is right now on an OG PS4.

That sucks really. But how was the immersion? Was it so good that you forget about resolution?
