The demands of this headset are high, meaning the user will have to have a sufficiently powerful (and expensive) PC. However, it’s also one of the best on the market and, thanks to a string of recent price drops, is more affordable than it’s ever been.
This headset works with the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro consoles. Black Friday saw some huge discounts on PlayStation VR bundles, giving users everything they need, including games, to get started.
Oculus are giants in the VR industry, and their recently launched Go headset is one of the most innovative on the market. It gives the user everything they need to experience VR contained in one headset. They don’t need to connect it to a PC or console, and they can enter immersive virtual reality worlds on the move.
Headsets such as the HTC Vive require the users to be constantly tethered to their PC, which can be cumbersome. However, some companies have developed wireless adapters that can be used with the device. They’re incredibly convenient and improve the VR experience.
The Oculus Rift only comes with two sensors, meaning it isn’t capable of full room-scale VR out of the box. Adding an additional sensor allows users to explore wider spaces and experience VR with more immersion.
