Engadget Review

The bottom line: Our quick verdict on the PlayStation VR

The PlayStation VR is surprisingly comfortable and capable, despite its limited hardware. And surprisingly, it has better games than the Rift or Vive. But it's still an expensive and risky purchase for most people.

Pros
  • Comfortable and well-designed
  • Decently immersive VR
  • Solid lineup of launch games
  • Cheaper than rival VR headsets
Cons
  • Lower-res and narrower field of view than competitors
  • PS4 hardware isn't as fast as typical gaming PCs
  • Still expensive for an untested market
