I'm addicted to Horizon Zero Dawn. I have no words to describe how amazing it is. Concurrently, I feel more comfortable with a PS4 controller; never thought I'd see that. Plus the PS4 has so many exclusive past, present, and future. Overall the PS4 PRO is great. If you had any inkling to buy one, get it. It's worth it, especially if you have a 4K screen. Thumbsup

Have any of Rockstar's money suits bothered to look at the stats for VR?

HTC Vive 0.10% (-0.02%)
Oculus Rift 0.09% (-0.02%)
Oculus Rift DK 20.00% (-0.01%)
Oculus Rift DK 10.00% (0.00%)

Why are they releasing a game for a dead technology or at least a tech with no interest? The only possible thing I can come up with is HTC and Valve are paying Rockstar to make LA Noire into a VR game for Vive as a way to boost sales.

I doubt it, if you cared to frequent VR spaces, you can see things are healthy enough, growing and those coming in are blown away. But whatever, you just want to close the door.
Don't you know that new tech is supposed to already be at 100% adoption with Triple A games on day 1. kx should stick to star citizen threads.

Is that how your mind works? I DID NOT post that or any hint of it.
right
What you post and what you think you post are diametric opposites.

In your quest to prove me wrong, I will simply let a real video game professional speak about VR:

"I was very excited when I first played with the Oculus DK2 — the technology was limited, but you could already see what the ambition was. The hardware has increased iteratively; but you need an incredible amount of horsepower and very well optimised low-latency engine to drive VR. Neither Unreal nor Unity are particularly well optimised… The big players who have the tech that could make a difference don’t see the demographics on VR yet, and the people won’t buy it without the killer apps." (https://techcrunch.com/2017/08/26/this-vr-cycle-is-dead/)

Note the use of killer app in final sentence. That's the only thing that will drive VR tech. Everything hinges on that.

HTC Vive 0.10% (-0.02%)
Oculus Rift 0.09% (-0.02%)
Oculus Rift DK 20.00% (-0.01%)
Oculus Rift DK 10.00% (0.00%)

Those are sad, indefensible numbers. They cannot sustain VR profitability and no developer is going spend tens of millions to develop a game that only a small percentage of gamers can play. That's not good business cents.

No Man's Sky?

Don't know anything about NMS photo mode but I do know the PM in ACO looks almost identical to HDZ's PM.

Here's a screenshot I took with the game's photo mode of a large capital in Horizon Zero Dawn called Meridian. At least now I know which game inspired UbiSoft to add a photo mode to ACO.

screenshot 2

Apologies for the less than 4K quality.

My one chance to play KB/M on PS4 evaporated when the only authorized PS4 KB/M accessory did not work out of the box after an hour trying to set it up. Worse, HORI never responded to my repeated inquiries to assist me (and they still haven't). So I gave up and decided to continue playing with a controller (maybe that was Sony's intention all along?).

The only saving grace has been Horizon Zero Dawn. Not only is the game amazing on so many levels, but it is an excellent game for controller training. HDZ ease me into the controls pretty smoothly and repeats several times what I need to press. I like the on-demand difficulty switch. During particularly nasty boss fights it is nice to change the difficulty from Normal to Story (Carebear mode) on the fly.

"Frequent VR spaces" is typically visited by people who gush about VR tech, the same as "3D printer spaces" are frequented by people who gush about 3D printer tech. However, feelings are irrelevant to the stats, and the raw numbers say VR tech isn't growing. In fact, the numbers show the opposite.

https://techcrunch.com/2017/08/26/this-vr-cycle-is-dead/ - One veteran games industry developer who works for a top tier games publisher ... now tells me flatly when I ask about the current status of VR: "Come back in five years." ... "this VR cycle is dead."

Derek Smart is foaming at the mouth. I read a couple of his tweets. The guy sounds like he's having a pride-induced organism from his "I told you so" righteousness. It's palpable and toxic. However, it's like watching an episode of Jerry Springer. I think he's two steps away from throwing a chair.

Video games are unplayable with a controller. There, I said it!
Well, highly dependent on the game and how it is programmed. If it is well programmed, using a keyboard is often better, However, there are exceptions...

Good point. Correction: Final Fantasy 15 is unplayable on a controller. However, Wipeout Omega Collection isn't overly difficult. Speaking of which, fantastic game. It's Wipeout as I remember it on the PS1 only with insanely better graphics and modern electronic music. Controls feels familiar. When I bought it last night (my first PS Store digital purchase) it was on sale for $15 versus its regular price of $40.

Couldn't agree more about Horizon Zero Dawn being a great game. I've only seen it not played it, as a PC gamer. It's probably only 2nd or 3rd game that made me consider buying a console. The Last of Us, Red Dead and Horizon, seem to be amazing looking games. I guess Red Dead is getting pretty old and not sure how it holds up these days. At least at one time, it sounded amazing.

PC gamers would have modded the shit out of those games, well if it was possible. Party2

Absolutely. The Complete Edition is at the top of my buy list. It comes with the Frozen Wilds expansion. Being PS4 Pro enhanced means it has full 4K support, with high-resolution textures, at the max framerate at whatever the device can handle. I saw videos, and it looks incredible. That said, the blasted controller is rage-inducing, nightmare fuel. I'm going to save up enough funds to buy an authorized Keyboard/Mouse PS4 controller.

I bought Final Fantasy 15 for $20 at Best Buy yesterday. I was very happy with that!
