PlayStation VR

 

Sony has entered the world of virtual reality with PlayStation VR. Sony's headset represents the cheapest of the current “big three” on the market, and is the only one currently available to console gamers.

PlayStation VR review: now on sale, but is it better than life?

 

No, but PS VR is immersive, affordable and a dump truck load of fun

Affordable price ; Good selection of games ; Immersive experience

Key accessories not included ; Glasses can cause light-bleed ; More powerful VR systems exist

Sony PlayStation VR review: Virtual reality for the masses

 

We can't count the amount of times someone has said 2016 would be the "year of VR", ourselves included if we're being honest, but we're 10 months in now and it's been anything but. Setting up the PS VR has proven a troublesome project, especially with...

Incredible gaming experiences, sturdy and robust headset, works with existing technology, cheaper than equivalent rivals

Set-up can be long and frustrating, tracking issues can occur, screen lower resolution than rivals, games can be pricey

Setting up the PS VR has proven a troublesome project, especially with Camera placement and calibration, and that is worrying considering it will invariably attract plenty of less tech savvy customers. But the pay-off at the end is a superb virtual...

Hands-on: Sony PlayStation VR review: We dive into the deep with Sony's Project Morpheus - Pocket-lint

 

When you say virtual reality to people, they usually say one of two things: if they are old enough, they talk of fond memories of watching The Lawnmower

Sony PlayStation VR review

 

It looks like 2016 is living up to its billing as the "year of virtual reality," with products at the high end ( HTC Vive and Oculus Rift ) and in the mobile arena ( Samsung Gear VR , Google Cardboard , Google Daydream ) offering VR options across the...

The PlayStation VR is the most accessible, affordable and user-friendly full VR option on the market. Sony has promised support from a long list of developers down the track but the immediate launch games are pretty solid as well.

Its single-camera tracking system occasionally feels lacking and you may have trouble when you turn around. The PSVR's graphical fidelity is occasionally noticeably lower than what's possible with HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.

While the motion tracking trails its PC VR counterparts, Sony's PlayStation VR otherwise crams a solid and satisfying virtual reality experience into an existing PS4 game console.

Sony PlayStation VR review

 

Proper VR for the masses that just misses out on greatness

Very comfortable ; Much more affordable than its rivals ; Incredibly smooth, fluid and immersive VR ; Some of the early content is amazing

Some inconsistencies to head and controller tracking ; Relatively small play area ; A lot of the initial games are very short ‘experiences’ ; Some odd design decisions

The PS VR is capable of delivering incredible experiences, but some teething issues mean we can’t yet recommend it without reservations

PlayStation VR review: The best case for consumer-friendly VR yet and cheaper than ever

 

Sony proves the PS4 is more than capable of bringing VR to the masses

Despite the cable nightmare, the lower-resolution screen and expensive games catalogue, I couldn’t recommend picking up PlayStation VR more. It’s an absolute blast and, if you can afford the £350 price tag, a must-buy for any avid PS4 fan and gamer....

The Sony PlayStation VR Review

 

Relatively Affordable ; Comfortable ; Best HMD for Glasses ; Vibrant Display

Fragile Mechanical Adjustments ; Confusing Bundle SKUs ; Expensive Content

Sony’s PlayStation VR is a great product the get into high-end virtual reality for more palatable price tag than the PC-connected options.
