PlayStation VR review


PlayStation VR is the headset that may bring VR to the masses.

Good game library at launch ; Great headset security ; Achieves that “full VR” sensation ; PlayStation Network filters out broken games ; More affordable than Rift or Vive

Makes a mess ; Not as powerful as Rift or Vive

Even with everything it does to make virtual reality more accessible and affordable, PlayStation VR isn’t for everyone. It’s still several hundred dollars, requires a fair amount of set-up, and there are still only a handful of games that run smoothly,...

PlayStation VR (2017) review


Integrated stereo headphones ; Streamlined cables ; Adds HDR pass through ; Slimmer build overall

No performance changes ; Limited efficacy of camera and Move controllers

We were very impressed by the PSVR when we first got our faces in it over one year ago, and it remains unmatched as an entry point for high quality consumer VR. The upgrades here are all welcome improvements, that, to be honest, probably should have...

Sony PlayStation VR


The Sony PlayStation VR headset brings powerful, compelling virtual reality, with motion control support, to the PlayStation 4.

Immersive VR experience. Works with non-VR apps and games. Motion control support. Low cost of entry compared with PC-based headsets.

Requires PlayStation Camera, which is not included. Slightly less powerful than its main competitors. Some motion-tracking hiccups when playing in brightly lit rooms.

Graphics-intensive, device-tethered virtual reality has been chugging along for a solid year, but it's still a fairly expensive novelty with few must-have experiences on any system. That said, the PlayStation VR offers the best balance of price, power,...

PlayStation VR is pretty damn cool


It may not have the state-of-the-art tracking technology found in the HTC Vive, but the PlayStation VR is accessible, user-friendly, well-supported and above all, affordable.

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.

PlayStation VR Review: Serious Fun for a Sane Price


PlayStation VR delivers compelling games in a comfortable, easy-to-use headset that won't break your budget.

Striking design ; Games created by well-known companies ; Fairly easy setup ; Relatively affordable

Camera can be very exacting ; Not as visually sharp as competition

When it comes to the best virtual reality experience on the market, the crown still belongs to the Vive with its room-tracking capabilities, with the Rift delivering a solid stationary experience. However, PlayStation VR offers a value and ease of use...

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: 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

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.
