Virtual Reality is the new benchmark in the modern Technology

Published: 08 Mar, 2017

With the PlayStation VR, the world of virtual reality has made its way to consoles in a big way. Previous headsets have not only been expensive themselves, but have also required expensive gaming PCs to have enough power to run them. The PlayStation VR is different. Not only is the headset itself much cheaper than its competitors, but it also only requires a PS4 console to run. Frankly, it's remarkable that such an affordable solution is as capable as it is. It has its problems – the most notable of which is the fact that you'll need to buy a PlayStation Camera if you don't already own one, and then shell out for PlayStation Move Controllers on top of that to get the full experience – but by and large PlayStation VR proves that not only is console VR viable, but it's actually enjoyable, too. Over a week's time we tried close to a dozen games on the console, from Rocksteady's impressive (but short) Batman: Arkham VR to the laugh-out-loud funny Job Simulator to the tear-jerking Wayward Sky and even a horror game – Until Dawn: Rush of Blood. Some of these titles were more fun than others, obviously, but all of them made the same point: PlayStation VR doesn't suck. Before we go on talking about PlayStation VR's finer points (and foibles), let's get the basics out of the way.
