Hi GalacticMistake, sorry to hear you're having problems. To the best of our knowledge, this isn't something we're able to fix and has been anecdotally traced to hardware or setup issues in the past. We've been trying to get an official response from Sony on the issue.
We did investigate adding an orientation reset to the 'options' reset but were advised against it as it essentially allows people to play in any direction, rather than facing the camera as the system is intended to work. To the best of our knowledge, no first-party game (like Rigs, for example) uses this kind of reset behaviour.
So the advice is "let people sit the wrong way because they cannot reset" instead of "let people decide if they want to sit the wrong way"? It seems to me no one would choose to sit not facing the camera (what you end up with now if you experience the drift), and even if someone choses to... it will be their choice and not something enforced, they'll ruin their own experience, right?
Thankfully I don't have the drift issue much, only once in a while, but still annoying to need to reset the VR set to "fix" the problem.
After reading Burggins post above: If I experience drift again I'll check my lighting at that time. Never thought that could be something, but I do have different lighting at various times.
