    If I get the PSVR for my first generation PS4 is the difference in fidelity between that and the same equipment on the PS4 Pro great enough to bother me?

    From what I understand, the biggest difference in regards to VR is frame rate. I could be wrong about that though

    I'm getting the PS4Pro for this because I would like the best experience possible especially when experiencing VR but I'm a long way away from getting my hands on a PSVR.

    Here's the thing. Do you have the money right now to buy a PlayStation VR? Personally, I'd say go for that first and then think about getting a PS4 Pro. That way you get the VR goodness without waiting. Without experiencing it on a Pro I can't comment as to how much better it is, but it's not exactly bad right now!

    $400 for the core bundle or $500 for the launch bundle.

    I believe the core bundle is just the headset and everything needed to connect it to a PS4. The launch bundles includes everything needed to play -- camera and Move controllers -- as well as a demo disc of like 10 VR games or so.

    The launch bundle is going to be hard to find for a little while most likely, unless you want to pay a $200+ markup on eBay. You can get the core bundle and but everything else seperately, but that would add like $160 or so.

    What kind of games are available for this kind of tech? I doubt these include FPS's, maybe sports like tennis and stuff like that?
    Tough would be awesome to frag people on VR

    I'm really torn on this subject. On the one hand, I want to dive in head first. Love new technology, hate the other headsets (terribly uncomfortable), but the fact that you literally play the games with the corpses of other stuff Sony got us all hyped about and then abandoned to the ether hurts my enthusiasm. What if I drop $400 and just get launch games???

    The difference between standard PS4 and PS4 Pro should be the resolution. A lot of people claim that the PS VR looks grainy, that's because the standard PS4 has to take a resolution hit to produce two images at once.

    The PS4 Pro has the same CPU as standard PS4, but it is overclocked, so while it could increase framerates, that's not the main benefit of the Pro; which is the GPU that has been doubled in power over the PS4. Standard PS4 caps out at native 1080p, while PS4 Pro caps out at native 1440p (double of 1080p, AKA "2K" res -- which then sees checkerboard upscaling to 4K res). So I'd imagine that PS VR games will also see a resolution increase and hopefully eliminate the complaints about the grainy imagery, perhaps bumping it up to 1080p per eye and thus native 2K res.

    Is that worth an additional $400? If money is no issue for a person, then they'd already have a PS4 Pro on pre-order, if money is an issue, you could probably skip the Pro and enjoy PS VR anyway.

    I doubt there'll be any difference in resolution, because like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, the PSVR uses built in screens for lenses, rather than say, your phone on the Gear VR and Daydream, or your television. So the headset, regardless of which version of PS4 you're using, will retain that same 960x1080 per each eye resolution you're seeing today.

    I'd assume the only difference would be framerate, as the_moesiah already mentioned. Maybe, <i>maybe</i> a higher level of detail, the way Rise of the Tomb Raider allows for <4K plus the same LoD as the current PS4 version, or 1080p with Ultra PC graphic settings. On the PS4 Pro, that is.

    I'm probably gonna stick to my normal ps4, the resolution itself its not a reason to chance my ps4. Thanks
