    So I'm curious guys.

    Did anybody here preorder PSVR? Or are you crossing your fingers and stalking Best Buy and Gamestop to try and find one once they come out?

    I wasn't able to preorder one, so I'm curious as to how long it'll be before you can actually find it in stores after launch.

    I don't pre order for the basics reasons, no money for that, not available for pre order in my country and to see first how it will and then try it, maybe it has issues as the Samsung Note 7 has.

    But yes I am hoping to get my hands on one of those.

    Never Pre Order, usually wait till the bugs are fleshed out before diving into any type electronics.

    I've pretty much put all my eggs in one basket at this point. Crossing fingers i win one from VRheads. Otherwise, it will be hours of window shopping and watching others enjoy their new PSVR devices lol

    Did not preorder. It will be fun driving around the city looking for one...haven't been in a brick and mortar store in quite awhile.

    WOW, I did not expect such a unified reaction against pre-ordering. That's kind of amazing. I totally get it, everyone has been burned by a pre-order.

    Nope.. Waiting to see how the thing is received and will need to get some cash in line to splurge on something like that.

    Haven't pre-order. Hope to try it out next week! Then, the quest for a PSVR will begin. At least it will give me more time to save

    Of course! I preordered the PSVR. Can't wait to have it. I don't understand the "avoid first version" logic. Yes, it will have issues and yes, the second one will be better but… guess what? the third will be even better, and so on. Besides, the second version could appear years after and (surprise!) it could have its own issues too so…

    I always buy the first version of the devices I want. Sometimes, second revision is better (anyways, I usually buy the "new" iPhones, not the "s" versions), sometimes are worse (e.g: consoles), You just don't know so... enjoy!.

    Definitely preordered. This is the first time in my life where I was able to buy a console-like product months in advance... I'm usually always playing catch up.

    Farpoint, definitely! 'EVE: Valkyrie', 'RIGS' and 'Robinson: The Journey' are in my list too. However, what I'd really, really want is a RPG game like Skyrim, Dragon Age, Dragon Souls… That will be awesome!

    I think most didn't pre order not waiting the PSVR 2, but the second wave of PSVR in order to receive a more polished firmware and hardware which usually comes just weeks after the first wave when the huge problems are revealed and corrected.

    I didn't preorder, intending to watch for reviews from a cautious distance. Then I happened upon an in-store demo and now I'm kicking myself for not putting in even a tentative preorder back when they were available.

    Just keep a close eye on all the stores. It's looking like more and more are freeing up as we get closer.

    Awesome, congrats. This thing is going to be a bash. Do you have any other VR rigs? And did you have a chance to test PSVR in-store?

    Just the Google Cardboard. And I didn't have a chance to see it... The closest store to try it is a 3 hour drive away.. so I'm taking an awful risk :b Being Batman, flying an swing, and throwing things at a fake job are just what I needed to push me over the edge :b

    You'll love it. Comfortable to wear and great display with minimal screen door effect.

    Fantastic.. Every day the hype gets higher and higher. October 5th will open the embargo for reviews for the coming games to hold me over I suppose.

    How do you feel about the reviews? What you were expecting?

    They're aligned with what I expected. Some people love it, some people like it but emphasize it's flaws.. I know what I'm buying into. I don't have unrealistic expectations for it. Ultimately, games will decide it's success. There's a few games I'm VERY excited to play (Job Simulator, Batman and that demo disc.). I'm just happy to be on the ground floor and see how it evolves. Luckily haven't tried Vive or Oculus, so I won't feel like PSVR is a downgrade.
