Is there psvr support in the latest patch?

No and there is not going to be any VR support on the consoles for PC2.

PS4 isn't powerful enough and the Pro doesn't really pack enough of a punch either so it's unlikely that it will ever happen

Add to this, Sony won't allow PSVR support for the Pro version only.

It is really a shame that the Dev's don't see the console Market as the Bigger PAY DAY vs the PC market.

If they were to properly develop a dedicated PSVR version.
even just 8 on-line drivers with slightly reduced graphics
It would be the Killer go to VR racing sim.

Even PDI and SONY sort of missed the Mark with GT Sport.
It has a VR mode, but it's Off Line with One AI car.

Get 8 On-line drivers, with slightly reduced Graphics Levels.
And you've got the Market all to yourself.

It would be lovely, but the console just isn't powerful enough to do that. The X might be able to do VR at a push but the PS4 couldn't

You are so sure? Remember, the post you replied to said limited entry field. How much of the PS4's capacity is held in reserve so 24 cars CAN be rendered and raced? How much is wasted on ultra high-res resources that have no need in a limited-res PSVR? How much is used for Livetrack, which any PSVR user would be quite happy to do without in a PSVR situation?

This emphasis on 'full game or nothing' doesn't take into account how much compromise PSVR users would HAPPILY put up with to get any sort of VR experience at all. Let's be honest here... If a PSVR experience limited me to 8 cars, no Livetrack, no dynamic weather, no time progression, and a handful of lower res tracks, I would still be playing it in preference to the 2D full experience. And, I suspect, so would many others.

But then there are plenty of us who wouldn't bother with VR without those features. If I want a limited experience with watered down physics, no dynamic weather and no live track then I probably wouldn't bother as they're features that are what make the game better than all the competitors. I can go out and buy GT Sport if I want a watered down racing game

The driveclub VR is pretty decent if you really want to race in VR on PS4.

Yeah, right. You are honestly telling me, if you had 8 opponents with fixed weather and track conditions and a PSVR, you wouldn't play it at all? Have you ever played PC2 (or PC1 if it had VR) on a VR headset? I would not make predictions about what you would do if you've never raced with a headset. The immersion is far beyond anything 2D. Ask anyone over on the PC forum. Ask them if they had to make a choice between no Livetrack, no dynamic weather and fewer opponents or no VR at all, what they would choose.

Yes I have. And seeing as livetrack and the dynamic weather are possibly the games 2 best features, I wouldn't sacrifice them just for VR. I don't want to spend all my time driving round on a bone dry track, I want to see the weather change, the track get wet and the strategy that goes along with it

You are talking as if you couldn't go back to the full 2D game. No-one is talking about making PC2 PSVR only...

You want Livetrack and dynamic weather and 30 opponents, play it on your TV. But I guarantee, you WOULD play it SOME on your PSVR if you had one. And so would a ton of other people who couldn't care less about Livetrack, but care greatly about driving in VR.

Yeah I have to agree. If there were anything in pCars like DriveClubVR, I'd play pCars in VR exclusively.

I dunno, seems like pure speculation to me.

I would prefer VR support at limited res.,etc..than having no VR at all!

Add to this, Sony won't allow PSVR support for the Pro version only.

However, SMS (and Sony) seem perfectly happy with making the game seriously graphically compromised on PS4 compared to PS4Pro. Grid size at max seriously hurts a normal PS4, but not so much for the PS4Pro. So, I don't see the problem here. If PSVR is pretty unacceptable on a PS4, but better on a PS4Pro, how is that any significantly different to poor graphic performance in 2D on the base PS4?

It's just a question of degree.

Sony themselves have already violated their own rules by enabling 1080P supersampling on the PS4Pro only. That the PS4Pro is more capable doesn't seem to have worried Sony. VR games with compromised base PS4 performance is common. Sony make no rules about how WELL PSVR is supposed to run on the base PS4. Just that it run at all...

I think, even if restricted as much as GTS (one player car, one AI) that if Livetrack were disabled, even the base PS4 could run PSVR no worse that the blurry Driveclub VR, and the Pro ought to be able to do as well as GTS's PSVR.

Remember, Livetrack is simply a layer added to the basic game. Take it away, take away the track evolving, it is still a blast to drive around in hundreds of cars on dozens and dozens of tracks in awesome lighting. Is it as good as the full game... no. Neither is GTS's PSVR mode. Doesn't stop it from being an awesome experience, no matter the limitations.

Thing is probably they would not even recover their costs to make this stripped down psvr edition. If it were a decent business opportunity I'm confident Ian would pursue it

SMS are probably not interested in PSVR support because they don't see any business value in it. Which is fine with me. If they can't see a way to make a return on their investment into adding VR support then why should they.

The game does run nicely on a PSVR if you connect one to a PC
