  1. So in the video you just popped the lenses right off, but then just casually say the lenses are FIRMLY glued in place, but don't actually list that as a negative. I'm confused.

    Are the lenses glued in place and difficult to replace?

  2. All I can say is I love it PlayStation VR it's so damn sophisticated you're actually inside the video game for real you start tripping out I was playing a lot of games wow The only downside they should've made it in 4K resolution I know everybody will agree with me they should have it in 4K resolution right now it only has 1080 P 0LED display sorry everyone I have an iPhone 6s Plus it's made in China it's a piece of shit because the spelling misspells all the time

  3. Austin Evans says it feels really light, but you say its the heaviest of all VR headsets. I trust that its the heaviest because you weighed it, but i also trust that it feels light because of its size it may feel lighter than what you may think its gonna be

  4. I think the last statement is an example of a poor excuse, as all the modern devices on the market are complicated pieces of hardware and are difficult to reassemble without any guides. I guess what we see here is that Sony's engineers have put a lot of effort into building a device that is easy to manufacture and repair.
