The PS4 Pro, PlayStation VR’s successor to the Xbox One S, is now available for preorder, and while it doesn’t come with a built-in headset, you can pick up the $100 headset right out of the box for $199.
If you want the most out of this one, however, you’ll need to wait a little while, as the PSVR has now been pushed to an August release date.
That’s just in time for a holiday season that’s shaping up to be a bit of a disappointment.
With that in mind, we’ve been testing out the PS VR headset over the last few weeks and have been blown away by the performance and the quality of the hardware.
With a price tag that’s nearly $200 less than the Xbox Scorpio, the PSVive Pro offers an excellent VR experience, and the only real issue we’ve had with the PSVS is that it can’t be used on Windows or macOS.
But that’s not to say that the PSVEts lack of power isn’t a good thing.
The headset supports 4K and 60Hz native refresh rates, so you can have your headset in its native resolution and still have it look great.
And as mentioned, you don’t have to worry about the headset overheating or not working properly.
The PSVS also supports up to six controllers, and that’s all you’ll get, as well as a separate PSVR controller with USB Type-C, a headset mount, and a headset dock.
If that’s what you’re looking for, the PlayStation VR Pro is a great option for someone looking for a new, affordable headset.
There’s also a lot of VR content to choose from, so it’s not impossible to find something to get you started.
That being said, the only things that are definitely lacking are the HDMI ports and the wireless charging.
But if you’re going to wait for the PS Vives to launch, you won’t have that much time to try the headset out before the holiday season.
