While the headset itself won’t be releasing until October, gamers across the US can give the PS VR a try, starting tomorrow, June 17. Between Friday and Saturday, demos for the new virtual reality system will go live in over 30 different Gamestop and Best Buy locations. Starting June 24, Sony will then expand that to roughly 300 locations.
The demos will include the compilation game PlayStation VR Worlds, EVE: Valkyrie, Headmaster, Battlezone, and SUPERHYPERCUBE. Sony plans to add even more games to the list in the months ahead.
“The excitement around PS VR has been enormous and once you try it, you’ll understand why,” John Koller, VP of PlayStation Brand Marketing, says in a post on the PlayStation Blog. “As all of you would expect, it’s our goal at PlayStation to deliver the best and richest VR gaming experiences, and we can’t wait for you to put that headset on and be transported into these worlds.”
While you can head over to the PS VR website to find the location closest to you, Sony provided a quick list of each city included in this weekend’s round of demos:
- Los Angeles-CA
- San Francisco-CA
- West Palm Beach-FL
- Grand Rapids-MI
- New York-NY
