Sony's Project Morpheus VR headset: First impressions

 

The headset felt secure thanks to a sturdy yet comfortable halo-like ring that snaps into place around the head.

PSVR review: Sony knocks it out of the park with its first VR headset and makes a headset everyone can enjoy. This is the best and cheapest you can buy.

Amazing games already available ; Simple setup ; Movies look great in the headset ; Comfortable to wear even with glasses ; Better value than Oculus and Vive

Processor unit needs to be unplugged to power down ; PS4 console desperately needs another USB port to charge all the controllers ; PlayStation Camera still fiddly

PlayStation VR is simply the best virtual reality headset you can buy right now. It’s cheap while not compromising on performance and quality. The headset is simply stunning and incredibly comfortable to wear, and the games already available are some...

PlayStation VR review

 

PlayStation VR is the headset that may bring VR to the masses.

Good game library at launch ; Great headset security ; Achieves that “full VR” sensation ; PlayStation Network filters out broken games ; More affordable than Rift or Vive

Makes a mess ; Not as powerful as Rift or Vive

Even with everything it does to make virtual reality more accessible and affordable, PlayStation VR isn’t for everyone. It’s still several hundred dollars, requires a fair amount of set-up, and there are still only a handful of games that run smoothly,...

Sony PlayStation VR review: Great games outweigh limited specs

 

The PlayStation VR is surprisingly comfortable and capable, despite its limited hardware. And surprisingly, it has better games than the Rift or Vive. But it's still an expensive and risky purchase for most people.

Comfortable and well-designed ; Decently immersive VR ; Solid lineup of launch games ; Cheaper than rival VR headsets

Lower-res and narrower field of view than competitors ; PS4 hardware isn't as fast as typical gaming PCs ; Still expensive for an untested market

Good on Sony for actually delivering a decent VR headset that comes in much cheaper than the competition. It's even more impressive that it managed to get a fair number of developers on board for the initial push. Nonetheless, the PS VR is hard to...

Project Morpheus

 

Preview: Two more Project Morpheus demos for you to get excited about

Morpheus still impresses and with the roster of games growing every month, we could see the PS4 headset giving the Steam VR-compatible HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift a good run for their money. VR can work on a console after all.

PlayStation VR (2017) review

 

Integrated stereo headphones ; Streamlined cables ; Adds HDR pass through ; Slimmer build overall

No performance changes ; Limited efficacy of camera and Move controllers

We were very impressed by the PSVR when we first got our faces in it over one year ago, and it remains unmatched as an entry point for high quality consumer VR. The upgrades here are all welcome improvements, that, to be honest, probably should have...

Sony PlayStation VR

 

The Sony PlayStation VR headset brings powerful, compelling virtual reality, with motion control support, to the PlayStation 4.

Immersive VR experience. Works with non-VR apps and games. Motion control support. Low cost of entry compared with PC-based headsets.

Requires PlayStation Camera, which is not included. Slightly less powerful than its main competitors. Some motion-tracking hiccups when playing in brightly lit rooms.

Graphics-intensive, device-tethered virtual reality has been chugging along for a solid year, but it's still a fairly expensive novelty with few must-have experiences on any system. That said, the PlayStation VR offers the best balance of price, power,...

PlayStation VR review: now on sale, but is it better than life?

 

No, but PS VR is immersive, affordable and a dump truck load of fun

Affordable price ; Good selection of games ; Immersive experience

Key accessories not included ; Glasses can cause light-bleed ; More powerful VR systems exist
