The Sony PlayStation VR headset, in just three months since its official launch, has gone on to become the most successful VR headset available on the market. Despite it not being rich with features as the HTC Vive, nor as flashy as Oculus Rift, the people has somehow seen that it’s truly the first consumer-friendly VR headset to come out
5 Things about the PS VR
With that being said, here are 5 important things that everyone should know before buying the PlayStation VR:
It may be surprising to hear that PlayStation VR is so popular despite its hefty £350 price tag, but compared to the likes of the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, Sony’s in demand VR headset is priced shockingly low. In fact, according to Alphr, you can actually purchase a PS4, PlayStation VR and all of its added accessories and games less than the price of a HTC Vive.
PlayStation VR doesn’t work with PS3
A lot of you seem to be asking if PlayStation VR would work with the PS3. Cutting straight to the point, NO. The PS3 just isn’t powerful enough to be able to output video to PlayStation VR’s screens, let alone rendering a full 3D VR environment.
You don’t PS4 Pro for PS VR
For everyone’s knowing, Sony has built the PlayStation VR to work perfectly with the original PS4. So if you’re thinking about purchasing both with you already have a PS4, consider purchasing the PS VR only.
PS VR outshined Vive and Rift
According to DailyStar, Sony’s VR headset was so popular that by the end of 2016, it managed to nearly outsell both the HTC Vive (420,000) and Oculus Rift (355,000) combined, selling 745,000 units since its October 13, 2016, launch.
PlayStation VR is incredibly comfortable
Sony’s headset may look like a pretty bulky piece of device, but it’s actually the most comfortable headset on the market. By shifting the headset’s front-loaded weight to your forehead, instead of the front of your face, the display floats directly in front of your face, allowing you to play comfortably for hours.
