VR For the Masses
The Oculus Rift and HTC Vive are two incredible pieces of tech, but there’s no denying that the price of admission is a little steep. Not to mention you’ll need to be running a pretty powerful gaming PC to even handle these premium VR experiences. While the PSVR may not offer quite the same quality experience as its competitors, it’s managed to effectively deliver VR to the masses at a more reasonable price.
With over 40 million PS4 consoles having been sold worldwide, that’s potentially 40 million players who are eligible and ready for PSVR. There’s no upgrade they need to pick up or exorbitant price tag to come to terms with. Coming in as the cheapest of the three VR headsets, PSVR has managed to open virtual reality up to a huge new section of the gaming demographic and will help to shift it into the mainstream.
