A more affordable option than the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR is tethered to a PS4 rather than an expensive PC gaming rig, but the downside is less power, and so potentially, less immersion.
The PlayStation Camera tracks nine light points on the headset so room-scale VR is technically possible, but as Sony has opted for one sensor instead of two, the tracking is not as good as on the HTC Vive.
Although, at present, PlayStation VR content is more gamingfocused, the headset’s huge sales figures (745,000 units since its launch in October – well ahead of the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift) makes it a serious proposition for the mass market. Price: £350.
