PlayStation VR – The New Gaming Experience
Virtual reality (VR) has been around for a while, and recently PlayStation has introduced a gaming headset for avid gamers. However, the concept has been around for a while.
The earliest references of a VR headset came from a science fiction short story titled “Pygmalion’s Spectacles” and as the name suggests describes a goggle based virtual reality device that contained holographic recordings of fictional experience.
Fast forward to 2017 and PlayStation has introduced a headset that lets the user immerse in the fictional experience of gaming.
As PlayStation says on their website, the device “draws on the creative heritage of PlayStation” and puts you right in the centre of innovative games. However, it is only available for PlayStation 4 (PS4), and certain select games.
5 PlayStation VR Games
Listed below are 5 games that are PlayStation VR ready.
Batman Arkham VR
Instead of playing Batman, become him. Think like him, act like him and solve crime like the world’s greatest detective in Batman Arkham VR.
RIGS: Mechanized Combat League
RIGS: Mechanized Combat League throws you into explosive battle arenas where mechanized combat and futuristic sport collide head on.
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
Immerse yourself in the rotting walls of an abandoned southern farmhouse and experience the survival horror game from a different perspective in Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.
The game is the first blockbuster game to be playable entirely in virtual reality. However, the experience has not always been a pleasant one for a gamer/reviewer.
PlayStation VR Worlds
In PlayStation VR Worlds, the gamer has the opportunity to immerse in 5 different experience. It can be as a member of London’s criminal underground in The Heist, or descending into the depths of the ocean in the appropriately titled Ocean Descent, or feel the exhilaration of an illegal street race in VR Luge. You can also explore treacherous nebulas in Scavengers Odyssey, and finally enter the futuristic version of dodge ball in Danger Ball.
Ace Combat 7
If you are not one for ground combat then why not take the experience to the skies with Ace Combat 7, and experience the fight like never before.
Gaming will never be the same
The introduction of PlayStation VR is set to be a game changer in the gaming sphere and I’m sure there will be more platforms following suite.
