What about the games?

Right now there is a short roster of games for the Playstation VR due to how early the product is, however there are some exciting games in the launch line up that are a definite source of excitement.

  • EVE : Valkyrie
  • Until Dawn : Rush of Blood
  • RIGS Mechanised Combat League
  • Battlezone

What’s the catch?

There isn’t much of a catch, as long as you have a PS4 and the Playstation Camera, you are good to go. There are other accessories that could be required like the controllers, but right now those aren’t deemed essential to the experience (at time of writing). So at most, the set up should only cost you the price of the device €399.99, and the price of the Playstation Camera if you didn’t have it already (59.99)
