So, what is/isn't required for this? I see it comes with a camera, and also can come with PS Move Sticks? Are the Sticks required for all games?

No controller can be used. Some require the sticks though

I had a much longer in-depth response typed out, but then my internet messed up, so I'll make it short and sweet.

*Get move controllers (the best games require/are improved by them, and they're more immersive)
*Most games use the DS4
*Until Dawn, Skyrim, and Arkham are all excellent choices, but there are many decent VR games (most are digital only though)
*the camera, the box, and the headset are the only required items. Beware that the camera does not necessarily come with the headset.
*I'd recommend the version 2 headset (this comes with the Doom and Skyrim bundles)
*I'd also recommend the AIM controller (although compatible games are currently limited)
*If you get sick within the first couple of hours using it, get rid of everything. It's unlikely to get better.

@whitefire basically covered it.

Required: PSVR processing unit, the headset, PS4 camera (PS3 camera won't work), and a bunch of cables (processor power, 2 HDMI, 1 micro-USB, and the special dual-HDMI kind of cable that connects the headset to the processor).

The Move controllers IMO are necessary. They are only required by a few games (the DS4 works for nearly everything but reaching the controller out and pressing a button isn't as immersive as the Moves representing each of your hands). They really do make a difference and since they're just the old PS3 Move's you can try to get 'em cheap at pawn shops or from people who don't have PSVR's.

I've never used a PS Move thingy before so correct me if I'm wrong, but they don't have an analog stick, right? So that means your only way of getting around in games like DOOM VFR is to point somewhere and teleport there instead of just being able to walk there? That alone makes me think the Move controllers are inferior, at least in that game.

The move don't have analog sticks. But with the way everything works, it's different.
On some games, you look where you want to walk and just hold down the button on one of the move controllers, and to turn, just press one of the two buttons to turn left or right.

Also, some games also have it set up where you hold a move button and you move the move controller up to move back, hold it down to go straight, left, right etc.
Your thinking about it in a normal sense, but in vr it's totally different.
Also a couple of games I have played, I hold the main button on both move controllers and move both controllers left and right to turn, and then look where you want to move and hold down the button.
It's very intuitive, and many games have lots of setups that you can work with.
I got both of my move controllers used from gamestop for $24 each.
Also what's very nice about them, is that with move, in vr you can control each hand in many games, so like shooting games, you can shoot at two different locations at once, but not with the DS4.
It really helps with immersion, plus you don't need the DS4 to operate thr main menu on the ps4 to change games or settings, or send messages, etc as you can do all of that with a move controller

Edit, to answer your question, just about all games where you move around have both an option for teleporting and smooth movement. And yes you can have smooth movement with move controllers.
Bit also, if you are new to vr, I would never recommend you to use smooth movement right away, as I would almost say that it's a sure fire way to get sick. You have to work up your vr legs first

I can only speak for myself, but you don't move around (in the traditional way) in a lot of VR games at all, so it doesn't really make a difference. The move controllers are best used when an analog stick wouldn't be used anyway.

How much space do you need to have a good experience with this? In my game room I don't have much room at all between the tv and couch.

My couch is around 6 feet from my PS4. It's a little tight but still very enjoyable. Just try to put your camera as close to chest height as possible (maybe eye height is even better, but that wasn't easily doable for me). Mine is on top of my Wii U.

Basically went all digital for VR. I am letting these go for next to nothing.

Many games can be played seated and a swivel chair is best but if you sit on the edge of the couch 6' away you should be good for 80% of the games. PSVR mostly keeps action in front of you, unlike Oculus/Vive.

My best advice is to put the camera on TOP of the tv. Maybe that's normal but I originally tried to hid it a bit under the tv. Once I put it on top and calibrated, I had no issues with tracking.

Impossible for me as my TV is mounted on the wall too high for the camera to reach. :(

The sweating is a big problem for me as well. I have to turn the air conditioner way down or play when it's cold outside.

Try Arkham and Until Dawn. Those are two games that game me virtually no motion sickness (Skyrim gave me a little and Drive Club gave me a moderate amount). If you get motion sickness with those, I don't think PSVR is for you, unfortunately.

You can also download two demo compilations for free on PSN. That should help you as well.

What I did was hook up a nice fan to blow on me while I play, I find that helps a lot. I also limit myself to short bursts on games that hit me harder. I was able to do like 2 hours on Farpoint for some reason with zero issues at all in one run, but Dirt Rally got me messed up in 20 minutes.

I must got lucky. I have done several 8 hour vr sessions, and played all demos and Skyrim and the only game that got gave me nauseous was RIGs. And that was after I turned off the dimming thing when you turn.

But I do notice that in Skyrim, and solus project, I need to keep the movement speed somewhat down, or I will start to sweat, but that's about it.

But I'm sure if I turned off all the vr handicaps, turned on fast movement with smooth turning, I would get sick as a dog. I'm still building up my vr legs. I'm slowly turning off handicaps and speeding up stuff

If you can do 8 hours VR sessions, you're not lucky, you have super powers.

I did get Until Dawn, however I see how it would be a lot better with Move Sticks...

Lol
The reason I know it's like 8 hours, is I usually watch my 2 year old and it's harder for me to find the time to play vr until he goes to sleep. And then I play, and a few times I have played until like 4am. With a couple breaks to the bathroom or to get something to drink.

Even if you don't like Batman I think you'll find some things to like. It shows off a lot of VR tricks and different play mechanics that are really enjoyable. It's easily one of the best experiences on PSVR, just a short one.

I love batman, but I didn't like this experience because it was way too limited, and confusing on what exactly you're supposed to do. They could have done so much more with this, but it's a very short limited"experience" that should have just been a free download.

I'm going with Mortal Blitz and I just tried the demo of Thumper and it was great, so I'm buying that too. I also added Weeping Doll to the cart because it's only a buck, even though I haven't heard anything positive about it. Now I'm gonna look for a few non-VR games to add to the cart.

I've always been interested in Archangel but not at that price. I think it came out at $40 then dropped to $30. If there was a physical release that I could resell/trade after I'd have it already.

$17 isn't that much though if it's as good as they say. Reddit seems to have a very good opinion of it. i do wish they'd offer a demo.

There is a demo, in the demo disc version 1 or 2, can't remember which, but one of them has it. I didn't like it. You can download both of the demo packs from the store also.

Robinson the Journey got me sick at first. But after a while I could go for hours with no issues. It is possible to acclimatize yourself to full movement in VR but not everybody can. Vertigo, however, still gets me a lot.

Wasn't thrilled with Archangel. It's kind of poop.

Superhot is excellent. Rhombus of Ruin is good too and very little motion for those that get sick. I loved Robinson the Journey but it causes sickness for a lot of people.

We're less than a week away from The Inpatient. I just tried to pre-order it from Best Buy because I have the GCU membership now but haven't used it on anything yet. But they won't ship it to me, it says it's only available for store pickup. That's kinda lame.

That's strange, Sony happen to have prime? I checked on my prime and it's available with prime discount. Seems like BB would do the same

It's from the makers of Until Dawn but different. I'd imagine it's a psychological horror with some jumps.
