Why you should or shouldn’t buy Sony Playstation VR

Our Rating

TETHERED to my space ship, inspecting the dials and gripping the controls, I readied myself for battle.

My flight crew regaled me with stories of my last death as the machine burst forward, barreling down a tunnel and ejecting into space.

Joysticks moved me left, right, twisted my ship on its axis, spun it around, and made it skim an asteroid.

That’s when my legs began to wobble. My eyes told me the horizon had moved, yet my brain told me I was still standing in my lounge room wearing a headset and clutching a game controller.

Sony launched its first virtual reality headset for the PlayStation today, and it’s quite literally a game-changer.
