Yes, the graphics in the Moss games, some of the best on the PSVR.
I got stuck on two of the boomerang Mouse puzzles in Moss 2. I will try to solve them on my own without tips, but if I can't figure it out, I'll check the tips and move forward with it finally. Overall though, I like the game and that garden castle area looked cool. I bet it would look much better on PSVR2.

What is disappointing is Hitman 3 on PSVR1. The controls when aiming, I'll have to see if they finally updated it, as it was a disaster as the tracking kept drifting off target. I couldn't complete missions hardly. The maps are fun to explore, but the pop in for that PSVR1 game is horrible. I would walk up to a bare empty shelf and by time I reached it, about 50 bottles popped into view within a couple yards distance. I ended up playing that one in 2D and it's a decent stealth game. The Suburbs map is really cool with the houses and sidewalks, streets, park and trees. You can go into a bunch of houses.

Cool, nice going to complete the Moss games. They're really nice games for PSVR2 to have at launch. I look forward to seeing what that team does next for PSVR2.

Saints & Sinners I would finally be able to play as I never bought the PSVR1 wands which the game requires, but since PSVR2 automatically includes the needed hand controllers, that's great.

Yeah, in concept Hitman looked fantastic but the gameplay let it down. Im debating if I should play it flat now.

I liked the trailer on the store.

The Walking Dead 2 is out so I think I might do that one next once I finish Tchia. I just hope this doesn't have the "days" mechanic where you get few enemies and good stuff when you start but every time you go back the days pass and you get more enemies and less good stuff. I ****** hated that. It was otherwise I really good game.

For 59.99, I'm surprised Call of the Mountain didn't offer more variety compared to mostly climbing from the sound of it.

Absolutely worth playing flat, for the Formula One mission, the beach town mission, and the suburbs most of all. Sadly, the maps in the Hitman 3 game itself aren't as good as the prior maps in the previous games. A lot of maps to free roam through with all 3 games connected.

I bought all 3 games to be able to see them all in VR on PSVR1. But in the end, because of the clumsy aiming for VR, I switched to 2D gameplay 4K 60 fps on PS5, and it looks so much better with no pop in either.

As someone who finished & 100% Horizon, it definitely offers more variety than climbing. Though I would argue in spite of its looks will be more impressive to somebody with no previous experience with VR, such as myself. It also cost 40 for me as it came with the PSVR2. I just assumed anyone buying it would have gotten it with the hardware.

Thanks. I saw videos where you can craft items with string, talk to people, go in a boat, look at the creatures crossing past and fighting each other, and battles with bosses, but then I was thinking about the title including the word Mountain, and can picture most of it takes place on the mountain.

Just got a survey from Sony about my satisfaction with the PS VR2. For everyone that gets it, please emphasize how thrilled youd be to get 3D Blu-ray support added.

Absolutely! I will mention these:

1. 3D Blu-ray Support
2. Need Half-Life Alyx
3. Need an Astrobot PSVR2 version.

The plastic wire coat is starting to pull away from the usb-c connector end bit exposing the metal wire encasing underneath. My guess is it's this after a month and a bit. Within a year it'll be kind of screwed? Wasn't expecting that to be shoddy, honestly. It's kind of an essential bit of the hardware. The bit that connects into the PS5. My main gripe with the hardware so far in an otherwise decent experience.

Dang sorry to hear that. I’m surprised that’s happening so soon and am curious if this is widespread. I’ll be sure to avoid any sort of tension there.

And more compatibility with VR1 games. I find it baffling that Sony didnt at least ensure all their 1st party PSVR1 games played on PSVR2. Especially Astrobot Rescue Mission.

Cool thank you for posting that request to Sony! Sony is out of touch with their 3D fan customers, considering they abandoned supporting blu ray 3Ds and their 3DTVs back in 2017. Sony eventually gives up on their products when they're no longer big profits.

That sounds frustrating.
If it was a cord that I had that was exposing the inner wires, I usually tape it up with thick coats of black electrical tape from most hardware stores. It's tricky though depending on where it's breaking. If it's at a stress point, then it's going to need relief/support from that stress point in some way.

One of the issues I had with the original PSVR was with getting regular disconnections from the USB port at the front of the PS5. There were times I couldn't even get it to turn on since it kept telling me it was disconnected even though I had it plugged in. It's concerning to hear that there may be a quality control issue with the USB connector on the PSVR2.

Also, it's not exactly fair to single out Sony when it comes to 3D movies. Every TV manufacturer stopped including it after their 2016 models and only a handful of 3D blurays have been released in the US since then. That said, they do have a track record of abandoning their own products (see PSVR and Vita) which is why I'm still waiting to see how PSVR2 pans out.

Sony were once the leaders of the "3D Worlds", offering stereo 3D gaming, 3DTVs including the Sony Bravia, as well as 3D blu ray movies. Eventually, they felt profits weren't enough to continue to support the niche audience remaining, and dropped support entirely instead of just occasional releases like Warner Bros. did with blu ray 3Ds for a good few + years after most of the other big studios gave up 3D blu ray support.

In fairness, 2017 was the last year of production for 3DTVs, but ViewSonic and other 3D projectors were still offering new 3D/2D display players years afterwards to watch blu ray 3Ds with.

Then Sony even supported blu ray 3D playback with their PS3 and PS4 as well as PSVR1 later on.

It's mostly a matter of all or nothing for Sony at this point, who have not budged or hinted at any chance of blu ray 3D support for the much improved PSVR2 on PS5. I think they wrote off 3D, despite the fact that almost all PSVR1 and PSVR2 games are stereo 3D, a fact that they don't mention in any of their marketing. That was a major selling point for me, but I had to research PSVR1 to learn it indeed has gaming in stereo 3D VR. I didn't know that.

When there are no considerable profits, Sony just doesn't care it seems. As a business, that is understandable but as a giant corporation, they've abandoned a loyal segment of their fans. Even a limited run release of a new blu ray 3D movie released in theaters by Sony would be welcome, as Disney Japan offers to this day on blu ray 3D for pre-order import.

Had Sony offered blu ray 3D support on PS5's PSVR2, that would help motivate me to consider it sooner, but nothing at this point.

I think it's a much larger segment than many people believe (including the manufacturers). Just take a look at the PS VR2 FAQ topic on Sony Playstation's official blog and all of the comments there. I think 80% of the comments are requesting 3D Blu-ray playback. It kinda surprised me. I can only imagine how many people didn't buy the PS VR2 at launch because of the missing feature.

Thanks. Yes, that's hopeful to see 3D fans really want blu ray 3D playback, considering the PSVR2 is a stereo 3D gaming device that can easily play blu ray 3D if Sony allows it as they did with PSVR1.

Why remove a requested 3D feature, Sony? There is still time for them to add it by some miracle.

3D fans are a passionate bunch. No doubt about that.

Also, price cut imminent...?
