    Me personally not. I don't care about VR. It's a nonsense like move or kinect was to me. What's your opinion on that?

    How can you claim it's a nonsense then?

    VR is the single most immersive experience I have ever had. Using a VR headset for the past couple of months in Asseto Corsa, PCars, iRacing and it is fantastic. It's the future of sim racing, maybe not this gen but certainly 2nd or 3rd gen. I would advise you not to discount it before you try it.

    While I'll probably never use VR (mainly because of the price) I find it a very interesting idea and would love for GTS to support it.

    I have no interest in VR. But I might be interested in any benefits that come from it. Many feel that VR is hampering GTS development. In my ignorance of such things I believe that VR might help PD as they over reached on PS3, hence fluctuations in frame rate, poor AI ect. Love GT and Sport looks fantastic already.

    And have you played with VR 10 or more hours yet? Or just tried it for a few minutes?

    I own a HTC Vive. I've gamed in VR for 5 hours at a time. I've raced several races in a row with both practice and qualifying sessions. I've had it for two months now and have spent countless hours in VR. Why do you ask?

    ...I am genuinely interested in VR for sure. Imagining No Man's Sky or Fallout 4/Elder Scrolls in VR just makes me giddy like a little kid again. Of course, GT fits the bill pretty nicely as well too.

    Only thing remaining to consider is the cost factor - for PC it takes a substantial rig to have a smooth VR experience, and for Playstation ecosystem I'm waiting on the fence to see whether or not Sony would ditch the hardware just because of a poor initial sales.

    So I'll have my answer sometime next year, or maybe after that. We'll see.

    Because I don't believe that It doesn't have an effect on your brain after a long time using.

    Comparing things like Kinect and Move to VR gear is a pretty poor comparison, as the former are merely extensions of control pads that do little for purposes of immersion. Being able to virtually 'sit' in the vehicle, however, does.

    If your opinion is that it's nonsense and it affects your brain then I doubt anything will convince you otherwise. IMO VR is the future of gaming.

    Brilliant, absolutely brilliant. You start a thread asking for opinions with your own opinion seemingly set in stone based on nothing and then take the hump when people express their opinion and challenge your own!

    I want PSVR. Badly. I've been playing racing games for so long, I'm used to the motions. But this will be a great new experience based on the few demos I've tried.

    I don't have any problem with your opinion. I don't want to argue. I said my opinion already and now is space for the others.

    Potentially:
    • Immediately discontinue using the headset if any of the following symptoms are experienced: seizures; loss of awareness; eye strain; eye or muscle twitching; involuntary movements; altered, blurred, or double vision or other visual abnormalities; dizziness; disorientation; impaired balance; impaired hand-eye coordination; excessive sweating; increased salivation; nausea; lightheadedness; discomfort or pain in the head or eyes; drowsiness; fatigue; or any symptoms similar to motion sickness.

      • Just as with the symptoms people can experience after they disembark a cruise ship, symptoms of virtual reality exposure can persist and become more apparent hours after use. These post-use symptoms can include the symptoms above, as well as excessive drowsiness and decreased ability to multi-task. These symptoms may put you at an increased risk of injury when engaging in normal activities in the real world.

      • Do not drive, operate machinery, or engage in other visually or physically demanding activities that have potentially serious consequences (i.e., activities in which experiencing any symptoms could lead to death, personal injury, or damage to property), or other activities that require unimpaired balance and hand-eye coordination (such as playing sports or riding a bicycle, etc.) until you have fully recovered from any symptoms.

      • Do not use the headset until all symptoms have completely subsided for several hours. Make sure you have properly configured the headset before resuming use.

      • Be mindful of the type of content that you were using prior to the onset of any symptoms because you may be more prone to symptoms based upon the content being used.

      • See a doctor if you have serious and/or persistent symptoms.

    Regular displays aren't operated by head movement, and do not immediately involve our vestibular system. Sure VR set makers had to overcome what could be initially interpreted as a natural/ physiological reject of such device.

    So just the usual health and safety ass covering all companies include for any piece of tech these day then? What's your point?

    The OP was suggesting some brain altering effect ;)

    Feel free to classify the warnings as the "usual precautionary" legal stuff. The vestibular system feeds the central nervous system by the way.

    I'm fully aware what it is. And they haven't banned human transportation by boat yet so I'm not too concerned about VR. Don't worry though as you can see up thread I've got my tin foil hat ;)

    The similarity states persistences and possible delay of respective symptoms. Shortcut taken; VR is as armful as taking a boat.;)

    Of course it's brain altering; isn't that the point?

    Interested in GT Sport VR?
    Absolutely. :)

    Not too worried about health concerns personally.
    You get the standard health warnings on start-up.
    You also get 3D warnings if your TV is 3D compatible.

    Least of my concerns TBH.

    But looking forward to seeing what this is all about and how it alters my experience.
    I assume I'll be considerably slower for a while until I adjust to the new FOV though.

    No interest whatsoever because I know I wouldn't be able to use it owing to motion sickness, which I get badly from normal first person games.
