PS4 Head tracking

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know if the PS4 cameras head tracking capability works on F1 2018, similar to TrackIR. I’ve seen it work on other games but would like to know before I waste my money buying it and it doesn’t work

thanks

I have seen it working on YouTube via VR headset but they have used 3rd party software so I believe it is doable under that situation only, could be wrong or patching may have setup supporting it since but I've heard no news on that since so imagine a 3rd party software is still needed.

I've only seen it work on PC when somebody runs it thru another program to convert the picture into VR...You can play the game on the PSVR headset but it's not in VR and there is no head tracking so you still have to use look left and right buttons to look to each side...occasionally I'll do a 5 lap race with the headset on...but you've got to play with the headset screen size and FOV to find the right settings to make it look and feel close to real...but at the end of the day your still looking at a flat stationary screen except its a little closer and a little bit grainy...I prefer my 43" Vizio TV because the picture is much clearer and alot sharper

given that you meantion PS4 camera but do not mention what platform you are on, this works for PC only. that is the cheap option.

and there are instructions to do the above yourself using a modified PS4 camera.
TrackIR also sell for $250

Hi,
     Thanks for the reply, I know about trackir but I was wondering if you could do something similar with the PS4’s camera, as you can use head tracking on other PS4 games using the camera (VR camera), I just wanted to know if anyone had tried it before I decided which route to take. I guess it’s the pc route then ??
