I'm not sure if we have a VR thread or not. I did a search and it brought back quite a few Individual Vr related threads, but nothing official. If I missed it let me know and I"ll lock this one and post there.

Found this sweet painting app call Tilt Brush. Reminds me of dreams.

I think Vive is getting delayed. It's September and we don't have a date or price yet. If it was coming this holiday we'd be able to pre order by now.

Both Morpheus and OR are coming "Q1 2016"
So yes.

So yes.
makes sense to launch along side that at least somewhat closely.  VR won't be much use without games after-all.

Everyone's hoping for bad stuff apps though.

Sony brought Morpheus to Fan Expo this year.  You had to download an app, do some fancy with it, and then get a ticket for it.  Weirdest line system I've ever seen.  So I didn't do it :(

Morpheus is coming "first half" of 2016. not Q1. so its most likely Q2.

I see quite a few places listing Q1.

GAF has a thread wondering if PC supporting PSVR would benefit Sony.  

Everyone seems to contend that PC gamers would buy it, would not buy any PSVR games.  
Which doesn't make any sense at all to me.

It would benefit Sony, They wont sell the thing for a loss. People that want it for PC and PS4 will by a PSVR before Oculus or Vive because it would work with both.

If you have a PC strong enough to run VR, you most likely are primarily a PC player.

The only PSVR games they'd buy would be exclusives, just like the only PS4 games they buy are exclusives.

If it comes out at $399 and they are targeting the enthusiasts, yeah I think PC support would be smart.

However if they go for the mass market price of $199 then it needs to be exclusive. With this strategy they'd be making money off software and expanding the VR market, not off the hardware. OR and Vive cannot go this low.
