Sony PlayStation VR review: Great games outweigh limited specs

 

The PlayStation VR is surprisingly comfortable and capable, despite its limited hardware. And surprisingly, it has better games than the Rift or Vive. But it's still an expensive and risky purchase for most people.

Comfortable and well-designed ; Decently immersive VR ; Solid lineup of launch games ; Cheaper than rival VR headsets

Lower-res and narrower field of view than competitors ; PS4 hardware isn't as fast as typical gaming PCs ; Still expensive for an untested market

Good on Sony for actually delivering a decent VR headset that comes in much cheaper than the competition. It's even more impressive that it managed to get a fair number of developers on board for the initial push. Nonetheless, the PS VR is hard to...

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.

Review: PlayStation VR

 

Virtual reality soothsayers have approached the technology as though they are treading on sacred ground and ushering in not only a new era of spatial computing but a new level of consciousness. Conversations that start with talking about dumb little...

The PS VR is a truly transformative piece of consumer hardware. Virtual reality tech has existed for decades, but price has always held it back from the real-world users. At $399 for the headset and around $800 for the entire package, PlayStation VR...

PlayStation VR Review Kirk Hamilton

 

I've been using Sony's PlayStation VR for the better part of a week and have played a handful of the games that will be available at launch. I've been impressed by some things, turned off by others, and made nauseous by a few. Throughout that time I've...

PlayStation VR review: High-end virtual reality goes mainstream

 

High-end VR's first chance at mainstream success has finally arrived after years of demos, teasers and sizzle reel-filled trailers.

High-end VR is now more affordable than every before ; Extremely comfortable ; Looks cooler than most VR headsets ; Likely that the best games will come to PS VR first

Cheaper than the Vive and Oculus but still expensive ; Visuals are often marginally worse than competing headsets ; Control scheme is often confusing

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.

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...

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
