It’s finally October so we know what we’ll see everywhere from this point on: pumpkins and… PlayStation VR. Sony has kept its word and we’ll see the virtual reality bundle hitting stores this week #realitymagic
When, more exactly? Tomorrow, October 13th. From the 50 games promised for the platform, about 30 will be available from the get-go. Fortunately, the majority are pretty fun to play so you won’t be in for a disappointment. From the top of our heads, we recall:
- Thumper – a twisty race on a colorful track that takes you to almost alien spaces
- Batman: Arkham VR
- PlayStation VR Worlds – series of experiences that will show you exactly why this environment is great for gaming
- SuperHyperCube – a modern take on an arcade game; you have to put the cube in the hole and it’s easier said than done
- Until Dawn: Rush of Blood – not so much a horror than as a shooter
Now, Sony PSVR isn’t the best headset on the market, but it comes with a pretty good price for what it offers: comfortable hardware, user-friendly sessions and the best chance you’ll have at playing cool games in VR.
The launch bundle is going to hit at $499 – headset, video& audio box, PS Camera and two PS Move controllers but keep your eyes open for less costly offers that include fewer accessories (if you have some of them already).
