On Sunday I purchased the PlayStation VR system, more commonly known as PSVR. I’ve been thinking about buying PSVR for a few weeks now but this weekend was great timing as Sony was having a sale on almost all their PlayStation products. Their Skyrim bundle, which comes with the headset, the camera, two Move controllers, and Skyrim VR, normally retails for $450 but is currently discounted to $320. On top of that, I had a $110 credit at EB Games for some games I traded in. After tax, the bundle was just shy of $250. When the PSVR was released less than two years ago, the price was $548.
I haven’t had time to try many VR games but I tonight, I did try the Star Wars Battlefront: Rogue One X-Wing VR mission. I tell ya, it was thrilling to be seated in the cockpit of an X-Wing. The game even predicts that you’ll be just want to sit and look around, as it doesn’t force you into gameplay until you’re ready. You can just look at all the controls for an hour if you want to.
Anyways, the library at work has a good selection of PSVR games so I’ll have lots to play over the next few months.
