Ha. We made a Trump joke. Are we cool now? No? Well, that’s fake news right there. Sad! What isn’t sad – or fake, for that matter – is that the latest update for the PS4 has greatly improved the tracking on the PSVR. Happy! Nah, doesn’t work, does it?
According to iWaggleVR, the latest update makes using the PS Move controllers a little less painful by improving the Z axis. If that’s not immediately clear, here’s the low-down: there are three axis’ that the PS4 camera tracks on the PS Move controllers, the X and Y axis’ for up and down, left and right, then there’s the Z axis, so forward and backward movement.
If you’ve played one of the many PSVR titles that gives you some virtual hands to play around with, you’ve probably noticed that they tend to move forwards and backwards of their own accord, even when you’re holding the controllers completely still. We’re not able to verify this claim just yet as the guy writing this article has been elbow deep in baby poop, but rest assured that once his hands are clean (scrubbed with bleach) we’ll be giving it a go to see if it’s as dramatic as iWaggleVR shows it to be.
Have you noticed an improvement with the PSVR tracking since applying the 4.50 firmware update? Or have you also been fighting the waves of baby dung? Keep it clean(ish) down in the comments section below.
