Previously known as Project Morpheus, PlayStation VR is Sony's answer to Virtual Reality devices such as the Oculus Rift. As one of the industry leaders in the gaming world, the fact that it wants to get involved in the virtual reality revolution is very much unsurprising, but PlayStation VR looks like it could be a very strong and solid start for Sony.
PS VR Hands-On
Several experts and gaming enthusiasts had the chance to sit down and test out the PlayStation VR, and they were pretty impressed by what they experienced. The headset itself was very light, comfortable, and incredibly easy to put on. It's even noticeably more comfortable than its PC rivals.
PS VR Quality
The quality is remarkably close as well. PlayStation VR is half the price of the HTC Vive, but if you expect a corresponding dip in quality, you'd definitely be surprised that the difference is pretty much close to no difference.
As we'd expect from a modern VR device, PlayStation VR features full positional tracking, which senses where the user is in real time. This allows users to enjoy some immersive 3D games in a full 360-degree environment. Users can also interact with their games through the standard Dualshock gamepad, which has certain motion-control functions built in.
PS VR game - Rigs
Rigs use a form of 'tank controls' where the left analog stick is used mainly for movement, while the right stick handles orientation on the horizontal axis. To aim your mech's weapons, players have to turn their heads physically to be able to look at their targets, which can take a little bit of getting used to.
PlayStation VR has officially launched on October 13, 2016, with a registered retail price of $440, making it the cheapest of the big-tier VR headsets to make it to the market.
