So I've got a PSVR that I bought with the pure intention of playing the "YET TO BE RELEASED" (end rant) Star Trek Bridge game. I also picked up the Stern Pinball arcade game (which is a lot of fun) and decided to try it with the PSVR headset on. I adjusted the view position on the VR headset to show the image downward to recreate the same viewing angle you have playing pinball in real life, and to my amazement, it's AWESOME. Not sure if anyone else has tried this, but do it!

Quoted from InfiniteLives:

hows the input lag between button press and flipper flip? that always killed virtual pinball on consoles for me.

I notice no lag whatsoever on my PS4 Pro. I have noticed lag previously on virtual pinball for the PC, but that might have had more to do with my specs than the actual game. My only complaint is I wish they'd release more tables.

Quoted from klr650:

Is Farsight still working on this? I thought they ran out of money and abandoned it. The PC version hasn't been updated since Dec 27, 2016.

Allegedly they're still working on it and have been actively posting via Facebook that an update would be coming soon. The problem is their definition of "soon." I picked up the game for $15.00 at Walmart, so I guess I really can't complain but I wish they'd at least release the GB that was supposed to be included.

It's wasn't intended to be played like that, but does work. And as you move your head the table moves up and down as if you were moving your head up and down or side to side if that makes sense.

Quoted from Williamson:

I don't believe that Oculus's VR exclusivity on Stern Pinball Arcade has expired yet (hoping maybe a year after release?), so the effect of playing it with PSVR is of having a large TV screen in front of you. When you move, your view of the screen moves, but your perspective of the table doesn't change.
Pinball FX2 VR, however, plays in true VR, with everything in 3D, and you can move your head to look "behind" things on the table. Recommend giving it a shot if you haven't yet.

Yeah, like having a large screen in front of you, but you can adjust the screen to be looking down at it to simulate the position you'd have looking down at a real pinball table. Not 3D like you've stated. Sorry if I was confusing about that.
