PlayStation VR Accessories

I’ve been scouring the internet for PlayStation VR accessories that can be bought now and their lowest prices.  This is a complication of the useful and the weird and wonderful things I have found.

PSVR is so close now!  I expect your mind may be wandering down a similar path to mine.  How to set your gaming space up.  How to store the HMD and how best to look after it.  I hope this page might give you some inspiration.

I expect there will be more accessories to come.  When I see more I will keep adding them.  Don’t forget also my list of PSVR games and PSVR peripherals.  If you would like updated about any of these lists, then please follow me on Twitter @miss_molotov.

17/10/2016 – Added Navitech Rugged Black Backpack for PSVR and Pro

12/10/2016 4:40 – Licenced case added at GAME.  Universal stand added.  Snakebyte range of accessories added.  Cleaning kits added.

The most useful looking part looks like the lens protectors.  Though the lenses are glass not plastic, so I am not sure how necessary they are.

Gameteach Anti-Fouling Mask

These anti-fouling masks I wrote about in my post on unusual PSVR accessories.  At the time of writing I could only find them for sale on Amazon Japan, but I have now found them for sale to us in the UK!

They’re washable and designed to protect your PSVR from grease and dirt.

PlayStation VR - Gameware Clean


Green Screen/Chorma Key Screen
3m x 3m Green Screen

It was mentioned in the RIGS live stream I believe, that streaming video of yourself playing PSVR along with the game play is possible.  Though I don’t think it is mentioned in the official FAQ.

If you want to give it a crack, a green screen is a good idea.  This allows you to film yourself but not the background and the room you are sitting in, which looks much more professional.

A lot of screens are only 1.6m side, which I think may not be big enough for an averagely sized person to full extend there arms.  This one is 3m x 3m which should be tall and wide enough for most people to film a seated experience.

There is a tutorial here.

Amazon £10.29

Jackie Batman shaped hygiene mask for VR.

An Unusual PlayStation VR Accessory: Hygiene Masks

I’ve found some quite weird and wonderful PlayStation VR things, during my daily trawls for PSVR news.  Hygiene masks are the latest.

PlayStation VR Washable Masks

Amazon Japan are selling masks designed to prevent getting dirt or grease on your PlayStation VR, costing ¥ 1,296 (approximately £9.50), or £11.53 at Play Asia.

PlayStation VR Mask Front

PlayStation VR Mask front of packaging.

Made by GAMETECH, it’s features are described as:

  • It protects firmly from the dirt of the PSVR headset, such as sweat and cosmetics.
  • Stretch firmly fit there. When using the headphone does not get in the way.
  • It is ideal for use of the headset of a plurality of persons. In addition, you can use always clean and washable.

(please excuse the Google translate English).

‘Plurality’ suggests that it is designed to be used if sharing the headset with multiple users.  It’s  reusable and can be washed.

PlayStation VR Mask Back of Packaging

Back of packaging of PlayStation VR mask.

It resembles a sort of half length balaclava.  But unlike a balaclava it has ear holes as well, to allow for using headphones.

PlayStation VR Mask on head.

View of PlayStation VR mask on a head.

As with most items of apparel bought on the internet.  I suspect it looks less weird on the model that it does in real life!

Breathing looks a little problematic too, with it covering the manikin’s nose.

PlayStation VR Mask on Head

Disposable Headset Protectors

Disposable solutions appear to be more popular, which brings me on to ‘dirty sheet set VR‘ as Google translate puts it’s so eloquently.  I think a better description is stick on disposable headset protectors.  Also made by GAMETECH, costing ¥ 1,728 (£12.70).

Stick-on headset protectors

GAMETECH disposable stick-on headset protectors designed for PlayStation VR.

More discrete than first the mask, this set comprises of two types of pad.  A protector for the forehead which fixes inside the headset and another pair of protectors for the nose area.  These must be the most likely places for skin to touch the inside of the headset.

Closest UK Equivalents

Should this idea appeal to the more hygiene conscious of you, the closest I have see for sale in the UK are Jackie disposable virtual reality hygiene masks for VR (£11.99 for 50, or £20.99 for 100).

This mask is composed of non-woven fabric and has loops at the sides to hold it in place around the ears.  It quite closely resembles a surgeon’s mask, but for your eyes instead of mouth!

Jackie Hygiene Mask for VR

View of Jackie disposable hygiene mask for VR on it’s own.

I can’t say it looks like the most comfortable contraption to wear on one’s face.  Might make playing a game feel more like going to the dentist’s for some work.

Jackie Hygiene Mask for VR on Face

Shows how the Jackie hygiene mask is designed to be worn.

It has the advantage over the PlayStation VR mask of being completely disposable.  However it won’t do much to help if you or your friends suffer from greasy hair.

Jackie Hygiene Mask for VR with Headset

Mask shown with VR headset worn on top.

Saving the Best for Last

This mask is the wackiest, but definitely has the most style.

It strongly reminded me of a certain PlayStation VR trailer by Rocksteady:

I remember after seeing it many people saying ‘were can I get the ears!’

Well, here, sort of.

This Batman shaped hygiene mask really will help you to ‘be the Batman’! (£19.99 for 50)

Jackie Batman shaped hygiene mask for VR.

Front view of the Jackie Batman shaped hygiene mask.

Okay, well it doesn’t quite look as cool as the one in the trailer.  But this one will keep your PSVR clean as well as being a Batman mask.  You can’t say that for the one in the trailer now, can you?

Jackie Hygiene Batman Mask Side View

Side view of the Jackie Batman hygiene mask.

This one actually looks a little better with the headset on top.  Certainly less clinical.

What do you think.  Will you be donning a mask for reasons for sanitation or will you be making your friends put one on before they can borrow your headset?  Or does an excuse to wear a Batman mask bring out your inner child?

Super Stardust Ultra VR Not Looking at all Like I Expected

EB Games in Australia  have got physical copies of Super Stardust Ultra available for pre-order on their website already:

https://www.ebgames.com.au/ps4-217245-Super-Stardust-Ultra-VR-PlayStation-4

I had imagined that it was going to be similar to the original Super Stardust game, perhaps with some kind of 3D globe.

Along with the pre-order listing EB Games have posted some screenshots of the new VR game and how wrong I was!

Instead of seeing the ship from a top down position like this:

Super Stardust™Ultra_20160614192456

Super Stardust Ultra PlayStation 4 [screenshot taken from my own console]

It appears you play from inside the cockpit. Much more akin to Battlezone, but in a rocky Super Stardust type environment rather than a Tron-esque one:

217245_screenshot_01_l

Super Stardust Ultra PlayStation VR [screenshot linked from EB Games here]

These types of cockpit are starting to feel familiar in VR games.  It has some similarities to both RIGS and Eve Valkyrie too:

217245_screenshot_02_l

Super Stardust Ultra PlayStation VR [screenshot linked from EB Games here]

The only thing that appears to elude to the shape of the original ship at all is the ship icon on the lower right area of the HUD:

217245_screenshot_04_l

Super Stardust Ultra PlayStation VR [screenshot linked from EB Games here]

The only other hint that this is in fact a Super Stardust game is the familiar end boss of the planet Logi:

217245_screenshot_03_l

Super Stardust Ultra PlayStation VR [screenshot linked from EB Games here]

After logging one to many hours in a day playing Resogun, I have often fallen asleep and dreamed about shooting alien ships in the first person.  Looking down the perimeter of the central cylinder and trying to see around the curve.  I can’t say I have ever had those kinds of dreams about Super Stardust.  But I reckon if I did, they would look just like this.

I can picture how the game mechanics could be similar to the original Super Stardust.  Though looking at the screenshots none of the weapons look like the original rock crusher, gold melter or ice splitter.

Can it feel like a Super Stardust game from this perspective?  Will it translate well?  Will it become a completely new game in it’s own right and will it be any good?

I am very thankful it will be a cheap upgrade to the original game, so won’t cost too much to find out.  Given that it will be an upgrade, I surely won’t be able to resist.

So who is making this game?  Could a VR Resogun be on the cards?  I certainly hope so.

Eurogamer reported last year that Housemarque were working on a Morpheus version of the game:

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2015-housemarque-testing-super-stardust-ultra-for-morpheus-vr

However the stereoscopic test they have shown looks nothing like the VR screenshots shown on the EB Games website.

I hope it is Housemarque.  If anyone has the skills to pull this off and keep it fun to play it’s our Finnish friends!

Update 26/06/2016

Housemarque kind pointed me in the right direction.  This is not their game, the VR game is made by d3t Ltd.

d3t have written about the process of porting Super Stardust to PSVR:

Though it still looks like more than a plain port to me!

Update 19/08/2016

PlayStation Access have uploaded a video of Super Stardust VR gameplay!  Though they made the same mistake as me and have credited  it to Housemarque.

Pricing of PSVR Games Annouced

Sony have sent out  press release in the last few minutes, with the European and UK pricing of RIGS, VR Worlds, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, Super Stardust, Hustle Kings and Tumble VR.

Firstly, there is going to be a VR Super Stardust and it’s going to be available as a day one game!  Well that’s pretty damn exciting in it’s own right.  This needs further investigation.

Update 25/06/2016:  Screenshots and more information about Super Stardust VR.

Also really good to know that there will be an upgrade available, rather than buying the whole game again.

The only game that costs as much as a standard AAA game is RIGS.  So I think VR games are looking surprisingly affordable.

Rigs – EUR 59.99 (GBP 49.99)
VR Worlds – EUR 39.99 (GBP 29.99)
Until Dawn: Rush of Blood – EUR 19.99 (GBP 15.99)
Super Stardust – EUR 19.99 [or EUR9.99 upgrade] (GBP 15.99)
Hustle Kings – EUR 19.99 [or EUR 9.99 upgrade] (GBP 15.99)
Tumble VR – EUR 9.99

Perhaps VR Worlds looks a little bit on the expensive side, when our American friends seem to be getting it bundled with their PSVR, camera and controllers.  However it does contain a good range of experiences, so it seems silly to miss out on it, when it could well point you in the direction of which full games are worth in vesting your money into.

No word on the pricing of Resident Evil VII as of yet.

 

Radial-G: Racing Revolved- Thoughts Before Playing

I am a huge fan of anti-gravity racing, especially WipEout.

So much so, one of the only things that’s cheers me up about hurtling towards the point of decrepitude is that I might live until 2048.  It wouldn’t be physically impossible for me to live until 2097.  Other humans have lived that long, though I think it’s unlikely.

Imagine, living long enough that anti-gravity racing actually became a real thing?  VR seemed impossible a few years ago, but here we are.

So Radial-G’s line ” If you loved F-Zero or Wipeout, you’ll definitely want to be involved with this!” on their Kickstarter page made me truly excited.  I am a little sad I didn’t see it while it was still active.

A friend sent me a link to the trailer and I instantly feel in love with the idea:

Radial-G is exciting because it’s a new type of anti-gravity, revolving around a a cylindrical track instead of moving along a flat plane.  I love little twists like this.  Bringing new challenges to old, loved ideas.

This game sounds like it should be fun as it is.  There is a standard PC version.  But sadly my neglected PC became too ancient to play it while I had my nose stuck on my PS4.

But this is really a game designed for VR.

When you’re in the zone racing in WipEout, it’s already an engrossing and immersive experience.  So  I’ve been bouncing about wondering what VR could add to that experience.

I love whiling away the hours in a meditative state, completely engrossed in a psychedelic joy ride.  Thoughts pure, clear and sharp.  Will VR take this experience to a new level?

The dark environment, neon features, and speed boost gates remind me of WipEout.  While the long tracks undulating up and down remind me of XGRA.  Another game I loved.

I hope that revolving around the track will add new depth to game play.  I’m interested to see what additional challenges that presents.

The sound track of WipEout was another major selling point.  I was already a huge Prodigy fan, but it introduced me to The Chemical Brothers, Fluke and FSOL as a child.  All of which became life long favourites.

From what I have heard on Soundcloud, Radial-G has not let me down in this area.  It has a nod to the 90’s with more current touches.  There’s some classic sounding synth patches mixed in with some solid beats.

While it has modern elements, it hasn’t been over come by monotonous dubstep bass lines or tedious Skrillex-esque hooks.

It pains me to admit it, but they have done a much better job of finding (creating?  Who made this?) new music than I have recently.  I even prefer it to the Formula Fusion music at the moment!  And they had a large community working on that soundtrack.

I literally grin ear to ear every time I hear it.  I am going to have serious trouble not looking like a nutter if I manage to try this game.

My only slight concerns are that I hope it plays better than the Android app Radial-G: Infinity and this one dodgy review by UploadVR.

The android app was a little clunky.  It sort of plays like Amplitude, where you have multiple tracks which you can jump between.  I also found the drift on this intense.  After about a minute of play I ended up looking completely behind me to keep the view looking forward in Google Cardboard.  This made me feel oh so sick.

Radial-G is very different though.  You are not travelling along a straight track, you are moving 360 degrees around a cylinder.  I will also be very surprised if Oculus/Vive/PSVR suffer from the same drifting problems as Google Cardboard.  I think that would be a top priority to sort out.  I have also read many thing about Radial-G being one of the least nauseating games to play.

The UploadVR review was interesting.  The thing that surprised me most about it was their comments about the steering mechanic.  It had not even occurred to me that you wouldn’t really be able to steer.  If I understand correctly, you can shift left and right to move to hit the correct gates, but there is no freestyle steering.  This idea again reminded me of Amplitude and the Android game.

This is my  biggest concern.  I have been pondering it a lot.  But I do wonder if it will actually matter.  That doesn’t necessarily mean it will be easy or less involving.  Things like Audiosurf are consuming!   It feels a little odd comparing a racing game to audio games, but I think you take my point.  The mechanic does not detract from the enjoyment of the game.

They also complained about the game being slow, which Radial-G addressed directly:

A fair question I thought.

I will reserve my judgement for when I have played it.  These comments have not managed to dampen my enthusiasm!

I sincerely hope that I get to try it today.

This photograph shows everything included inside the box.

PSVR_in_the_box

PlayStation 4 Camera

The PS4 camera is required to use PSVR.  The camera is used for head tracking, so the PlayStation can work out which way you are facing.  It’s also used to track PS Move controllers if they are being used.

The camera does not come with PSVR and needs to be bought separately.

Sound

PlayStation VR features 3D sound.  I am very curious about how this works and may write about what I have learnt another time.

PlayStation VR comes with a pair of inner ear headphones, so you don’t need to buy anything extra to deal with the sound.  However, many people (myself included) were not too thrilled at the prospect of using in ear headphones.  Imagine sharing them with your buddies when you want to show them PSVR?  Yack.

It was later confirmed by Shuhei Yoshida that any pair of headphones with a 3.5mm stereo jack will do the job.  Including the PlayStation Wireless Gold headphones (breathe a deep sigh of relief).

I wondered if this would have any impact of the ability of PSVR to produce 3D sound.  So I asked Mr. Yoshida:

 

Pricing

Pricing has been confirmed at GDC to be £349 in the UK, €399 in Europe and 44,980 yen or $399 USD outside of Europe.

360 video of the annoucment by Eji Warp.

This official video was released shortly afterwards:

It costs $499.99 for the bundle with two move controllers and the PS4 camera.  There are no official bundles in the UK.  ShopTo was the first to make their own, though last time I checked it saved a whopping 8p off RRP.  Although certainly cheaper to buy seperately.

Pre-ordering

Amazon appears to be the only company that is not taking limitless pre-orders.  On March 16th 2016 when pre-orders went live 5 minutes early, opening at 10:55am.

Shorty afterwards they stated:

Due to limited stock we are only able to offer one unit per customer per address. We do not currently have a release date for this product. Based on our initial allocation we cannot guarantee release day delivery if you ordered after 11:45 GMT, Wednesday 16 March, 2016. You will be notified via email of the expected delivery date closer to the time

Amazon has since changed the message to:

Due to limited stock we are only able to offer one unit per customer per address. We do not currently have a release date for this product. Based on our initial allocation we cannot guarantee release day delivery. You will be notified via email of the expected delivery date closer to the time. We will be fulfilling customer orders in the order in which they were placed. This product comes with a UK plug and therefore may not be suitable for use outside of the UK.

So it appears they sold out their entire allocation of PSVR units in 50 minutes.  Not quite the 5 or 10 some other websites claim.

Getting one for release day seems iffy now, but it is unknown if Sony will produce more units to meet demand.

All the other UK shops selling PSVR are still taking pre-orders.  Though GAME has been threatening they are just about to sell out since the very first day they went on pre-sale.

Initially the Sony website said it would only be available through GAME and Amazon, but there appear to be more retailers selling it now.  Possibly why Amazon was so popular, as they have mess up so many pre-orders for so many people, many wouldn’t touch them with yours.

I have made a list of retailers I know of over here with more information about pre-ordering. Ordered by name (written on 06/04/2016 onwards).

Release Date

No release date has been confirmed at timing of writing.  All we have been told so far is October.  I will keep you posted!

When I pre-ordered, originally it said it would be delivered between the 5 – 7th of October.  This date dropped off the order later on and was replace with the message:

Delivery estimate: We need a little more time to provide you with a good estimate. We’ll notify you via e-mail as soon as we have an estimated delivery date.

October is somewhat later than the other mainstream VR headsets are being release.  Given that both of them are now being delayed due to ‘unforeseen shortages of components’, perhaps they was a wise move.  Before delays with Oculus and Vive even happened Andrew House president of SCE (now SIE) stated:

 To make sure that we are able to prepare and deliver enough units of PS VR and a wide variety of software titles to consumers worldwide, we have decided to launch PS VR in October 2016.  For those who are looking forward to its launch, we would like to thank everyone for their patience and continued support.  We are beyond excited to deliver to consumers the amazing experience that PS VR offers.

Games and Developers

A list of confirmed PSVR games can be found here on Reddit.

So far there are 230 developers and publishers confirmed to be making games for PSVR.  Though I do not  believe all of these are exclusive to Sony and a good percentage will be working on multi-platform titles.

In March 2016, there were currently 160 PSVR titles in development.  With this number expected to grow!
