Cool PS4 VR for 3D

The Playstation VR will be coming out October 13th. How many of you HMZ fans will be getting one to watch 3D movies on?


I plan to try and get one, as I am a big fan of the old Sony HMZ's and have owned everyone of them. I think watching movies on the VR will be much better than the HMZ's due to the larger screen and 1080p resolution.
Not only can you watch movies, but you can watch 360 Youtube videos and movies as well.


I plan to buy this and use my Sony 9.1 surround headset to enjoy movies on the big screen!

3D items I own:

Sony 46" LX900 active 3D set

Sony HMZ-T3 (Cushion pads and light blocker mod)

LG LW6500 passive 3D set

PS3 & PS4

Sony BDP-S570 BD3D player

JVC-GS-TD1 (with Cyclopital base extender)

Fujifilm W3

Sony Alpha 55 (for 3D panoramic photos)

Quadcopter + Zenmuse and GoPro Hero 3 (Filming...

I'll be interested to hear your review. Will they only work with a PS4 or are they backwards compatible with the PS3, as well?

I heard these can now be used to watch 3DBDs. Is that true? Any reviews?

Yes, the latest ps4 update lets you watch 3d Blu-rays using PSVR. Don't know how it is as I don't have a PSVR as I find them too expensive.

I had HMZ3 which I returned after a few weeks due to screen door effect and comfort issues. Plus, I knew that PSVR was coming soon. : )

PSVR is definite improvement over HMZ. Unlike HMZ, it is very comfortable. I can wear it for hours with little issue. The screen door effect is much less noticeable as well. The black level and color look very compatible to HMZ. 3D effect is about the same as HMZ3. It is not wireless and needs PS4 to run however. Still, I would take PSVR over HMZ without reservations. The head tracking is also nice bonus when watching a movie on larger screen options.

I have the PSVR and like it very much, however is there any video glasses that give better PQ? Not limited to 3D, as most of my viewing is non 3D

this is the reason that I bought the PSVR. Yes, 3D is pretty awesome, I have watched a bunch of my 3D movies and loved every minute.
Here is one example, I have Jaws 3 3D, it is unwatchable on my Sony 930D 3D 4K HDR, I was pretty upset, then after I got the PSVR I put the movie in and BAM, it works.
Now, it is not even a 1080p image but it is acceptable until Sony releases a new VR HMD. And who knows how long that is going to take. I am very happy..........

Just another tidbit of information, I wear glasses, and you can keep them on while wearing the PSVR, you cant with the Vive.

It's only 720P right? I see there's a few 4K VR viewers out now, not sure what their connection interface is, maybe connect to PC and play movies in full resolution. Reviews suggest the screen door effect is gone with 4K resolution.

This line intentionally left blank.

Specs are 960x1080 per eye.

I watched Dr. Strange via the PSVR and the 3D was very good. The screen door effect still exists but I didn't notice it after a few minutes. Zero crosstalk. The biggest drawback is not being able to use surround system. 3d viewing requires headphones, which certainly provide complete immersion but, personally, I do not care for headphones.

And you don't know what is going on around you...the dog came by and sniffed my hand...scared the hell out of me.

I saw Jaws 3 3D in the theaters when it came out. That movie's unwatchable regardless of 2D or 3D presentation.

You def have to use the headphones? There's no way to output to a receiver? That is a deal breaker for me....

No it's not true. I have watched and just double checked that you can watch a 3D movie in PSVR and still use your AVR for surround. I just did it.

Was it a Blu-ray disc?

Yes. 3D Blu Ray discs. Assuming that is what you are talking about. I have everything running through my AVR. The output that goes from the PSVR to normally a TV goes to my AVR. That carries both the video and sound. My AVR outputs the video to my projector and the AVR does it's thing.

Regardless if I am playing a PSVR game or watching a movie, my sound is handled by my AVR. I wouldn't have it any other way. I refuse to wear the headphones unless it's late at night and I don't want to wake the family.
