How to buy a PlayStation VR
Do you want to replace all your worldly possessions with a virtual reality headset, specifically one made by Sony for the PlayStation 4 gaming console? October 13th is your lucky day — that's when the PlayStation VR ships and hits store shelves.To be clear, there are reasons to hold off on PSVR, whether that's for a few months or a whole generation of hardware. Sony promised 50 games by the end of the year, but only around 30 of these are out at launch. The Move motion controllers are distinctly subpar. Sony has promised that the upcoming PlayStation 4 Pro will give PSVR a performance bump, but it's not coming out until November 10th. VR in general is an unproven, experimental format. And even if it's cheaper than the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, the PlayStation VR still costs several hundred dollars.But as we noted in our review, the headset also has a lot of strong points: ease of use, incredibly comfortable hardware, and some good launch games. It hits a sweet spot of accessibility and performance, and is probably the best option right now for mass-market VR gaming. So if you want to get a PSVR, and you didn't preorder earlier this year, here's how to buy one.
