i'd rec getting an hdmi extender/adapter cable so that it's connected to something that can twist and flex

Got my replacement cable today and looked into this. Yeah basically need a USB and active Display port extension cables and you put them at the computer plug-in side and not the headset side.

So computer -> extension cables -> 1ft link cable that original went into computer w/power cable -> headset cable, which works as long as your power cable plugin is closer to where you're using your headset and not your computer which is on my setup.

Going to get 10ft extension cables to give some additional slack to the headset cables so they don't stretch and get twisted as much. While my second Index cable died because the actual display port cable on the headset broke off at the end, the first time it died just from twisting the cables so much the signal got damaged across the headset cables.

Also my PSVR headset cables died a few years in as well and I ended up wasting like $400 on a new PSVR which I barely ended up using.
VR Headset cables are just really really bad for constant use and moving of VR. Honestly this has definitely pushed me more towards Oculus.
I'm definitely not getting PSVR2 at launch. Will probably pick one up a few years down the line if the exclusive software is there.

Ok, set up the new Index cables with the extra 10ft slack extensions and worked like a charm. No issues running extensions (though I used the good cables recommended by reddit so was like $50 between displayport and usb 3.0 active cable extension) and having an extra 10ft slack should hopefully prevent the cables twisting and pulling and getting pulled out and have the cables last more than a year.

Good call naff on the extensions.

The device was inspired by Sword Art Online, an anime series featuring a VR game of the same name, accessible with a helmet called NerveGear, which stimulates the user's five senses via their brain.

Damn Luckey even has shitty taste in anime.

Got one too, but I probably won't be in a position to pull the trigger on it though.  :fbm

Nice, grats!  I got my email for the preorder link but am holding off until the VR2 headset can also play the VR1 games, soon as that happens I'll grab this.

The locomotion mode looks nuts!  Would really like to try that out.
