    I got invited to the closed beta test of 3 On 3 Freestyle, and it's seems like a lot of fun. Something new to play until it lasts.

    It's not NBA 2K17, but it's something entirely different and way playable. Nice!

    Installed that last night as well. Was able to play the original one on the PC back then. Will try it again on the PS4 :D

    A surprise System Software Update is up for download. Version 4.01, 312.1MB. Purportedly for VR, but no real word. But go get it anyway.

    Finally!

    Just got Rise of The Tomb Raider, which was released locally just today, after being an Xbox One exclusive for almost a year now. I'm a big fan of the previous Tomb Raider, and I was excited to finally get it. Been waiting for it for a long time now, and was considering buying an Xbox One just to get the game (and a few others). But my patience was finally rewarded.

    It comes with a nice freebie (while supplies last): a pair of dog tags, one of which is actually a hidden 8GB USB flash drive! If you want one, you better hurry because I hear supply is severely limited.

    PSVR Worlds came in free with PSVR. I also ordered the base version, no camera. I had to buy the PS Move/s separately. Only 6 Games were released last night: Until Dawn- Rush of Blood, Battlezone, Drive Club VR, Thumper, RIGS and Rise of the Tomb Raider. Tomb Raider went out stock immediately. No Arkham VR yet. The good news is that the games are slightly cheaper than your normal PS4 games. Price range is from SGD39 to SGD64.

    Yes but I preordered 2 months ago. If you preorder now you might need to wait for a couple of months. Stocks are fairly limited.

    Am thinking of buying Drive Club VR so I can try racing, but then I can prolly just wait for Gran Turismo haha. Was previously hoping for a patch for current owners of Drive Club so we can try/play it in VR.

    saw a review of Drive Club VR where uhh they weren't able to finish the review because of motion sickness. It was that bad according to the reviewers.

    I tried the PS VR in ITech, I noticed that the "display" is not "retina" levels, but text is still readable. Tried the space ship game, but it uses the Dual Shock instead of the move, so the experience is just like you're playing in an Imax theater.

    No Drive Club for me then. Haha.

    Actually my main purpose of getting the PS VR is for Cinematic Mode lol. Hope I enjoy it as much as I hoped I would :))

    Oooh, real sweeeeeet.

    I tried it before, and I'm sold.

    But after all these years, I think I've given up on being an early adopter. Age, I guess. I think I'll wait for Version 2, thanks.

    I read somewhere that the Playstation VR's Cinematic Mode works even on an Xbox One (or on any gaming system with an HDMI output), but without the head tracking. That's kinda ironic but a cool thing to try! :) Might be a good reason to buy one.
