How is a PS4 supposed to drive 2 1080p screens at at least 90fps when it can't even do 1080p at 30?

 

What I know the PS VR uses a single screen and then splits the image for each eye. Its also not native 90FPS but rather a lower FPS which is then manipulated through fancy software to create the illusion of 90FPS.

There is a breakaway box that has additional processing power for it. Also, it's only one 1080p screen just split and it'll do 60 fps, 120 fps, or 60 made to look 120. Based on what settings you choose and what console you have. I.e. Ps4 pro vs ps4.

It has it's own processing box and only supports the new PS4 Pro if I remember correctly.

Am I misinformed, or is the PSVR msrp $399 for the core and $499 for the bundle with the camera and controllers? I don't know where the $699 is coming from unless that includes a ps4 as well.

It supports both the regular and pro ps4. However, Sony has implied that the pro is the more enjoyable experience.

i think ps will cause a lot of motion sickness because of the low fps

 

From the recent reviews that I've read at least, there isn't much of a problem with low fps. The larger problem seems to be flaky tracking on both the headset and move controllers.

Pretty sure its not 700$. If it is then its already failed.

A little bit deceptive, though probably unintentionally: the link leads to the CANADIAN PlayStation site, with the MSRP being 699 CANADIAN dollars, and that price also being the price for the full bundle with headset, camera, controlers, and a "game". The headset alone is also listed there at $549, which is the price in CANADIAN dollars that they said from the start. While Linus and plenty of other users may find Canadian currency pricing relevant, there are also plenty of people (like myself) who will remember the announced price of 400 US dollars and think Sony is ripping us off with the much higher price here, while also comparing it to the prices of the Rift and Vive in USD ($600 and $800) and thinking it's incredibly overpriced for lower quality hardware.

 

TL;DR: please state that the price is $699 Canadian dollars, because it matters and people will assume it's US dollars otherwise.

PSVR has been on pre-order SINCE FUCKING JULY

 

ALSO MISLEADING TITLE. YOU'RE LOOKING AT CANADA. WE ALL KNOW THE CANADIAN RUBLE IS WORTH JACK SHIT.

 

also, your OP is misleading.

The cost for the PSVR is 399$. That is the MSRP of the VR headset. But you also need a PS Move Camera (70$) and optionally a PS Move Controller (100$ for a pair)

its 960x540 per eye, making it 1920x1080 total.

Also its 90-120Hz.

 

they use some fancy pre-emptive frame doubling to increase the FPS.

Fully maxed out early 2017 Dell XPS 15, GTX 1050 4GB, 7700HQ, 1TB nvme SSD, 32GB RAM, 4k display. 97Whr battery :x 
Dell was having a $600 off sale for the fully specced out model, so I decided to get it :P

 

-Crapbook

Fully specced out early 2013 Macbook "pro" with gt 650m and constant 105c temperature on the CPU (GPU is 80-90C) when doing anything intensive...

A 2013 laptop with a regular sized battery still has better battery life than a 2017 laptop with a massive battery! I think this is a testament to apple's ability at making laptops, or maybe how little CPU technology has improved even 4+ years later (at least, until the recent introduction of 15W 4 core CPUs). Anyway, I'm never going to get a 35W CPU laptop again unless battery technology becomes ~5x better than as it is in 2018.

Apple knows how to make proper consumer-grade laptops (they don't know how to make pro laptops though). I guess this mostly software power efficiency related, but getting a mac makes perfect sense if you want a portable/powerful laptop that can do anything you want it to with great battery life.

i mentioned USD because its the most internationally used currency. I can come back with GBP or EUROs if that pleases you more, or perhaps russian rubles.

The break out box doesn't do any of the processing for the headset, it takes the image generated by the PS4 for the headset and prepared it to be displayed on the television.

 

The PSVR uses frame doubling to meet the 90 FPS minimum for VR titles, and the native FPS for frame doubling has to be 60 FPS. You'll basically have 60 doubled to 120, 90 or 120 native on the PSVR and they'll dumb down the graphical fidelity to meet those requirements.

Low quality graphics, and it has a mode where it renders at 60FPS, and then extra frames are interpolated to hit 120Hz refresh.

No, that's literally not how it works. Also, it can run real 90FPS, it just depends what the dev decides. It can even do 120FPS, but good luck getting enough performance for that from a PS4.

The processing box adds no real performance. It just splits off the signal to the TV and does the interpolation for 120Hz. Also it runs on the regular PS4 as well as the Pro.

Do you have 4 eyes? It's 960x1080 per eye.

So how much it gona cost for a complete PS VR system (console/IO included) in Brazil?


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

don't think there is any numbers for Brazil yet.

 

you should go by US MSRP then just convert it over to your local currency.
