PlayStation VR PS4 is more than just a fabulous virtual reality headset. It is specifically designed for PS4 use. It comes with a relatively affordable price, compared to its competitors. As it does not feature the highest quality technology capabilities as its competition, it is much more sensible option. However, I am taking a guess that the PS will be almost practically leading the industry pretty soon. The device is very consumer-friendly. The plastic headset has the classic look like its competitors, but it has a perfect curve, and looks like a device from the movies about future. Fabulous bright lights on the PlayStation VR PS4 will definitely amaze you and make you look like a character from cartoons. Instead of these black ugly and uncomfortable straps, this model is equipped with a sturdy headband with ample cushioning. Also, there is just one cable coming out from the device, and it will not be a reason for awkward feelings while touching your body as its competitors. Manufacturers put a lot of attention and effort in details, and this is what one should expect from a company that has been in an advanced technology industry for over three decades. The thin rubbery material around the lenses will let your face feel extremely comfortable, and it will not be a problem for a redness, irritation or sweat. It has two lenses sitting atop a 5.7.-inch

We can easily say that 2016 was the greatest year for virtual reality technology, with a number of major VR platforms being launched.

PlayStation VR Camera is a Kinect-like camera for the PS4, but has a whole set of innovative features, and promises lot more in future. The camera itself is very nice looking, and the sleek black look gives it a unique design. It comes with a base that is easily adjustable to be mounted on top of almost every HDTV. Comes with a 6-foot cord, that might, or might not be, a problem for people who have the PS4 placed at a distance from the TV. It definitely is one of the best options available on the market due to its very high quality four microphones, and dual cameras, for those who want to stream the game and at the same time interact with their audience. There is a rather interesting feature of facial recognition, and in order to set up the account on your PS4, it will ask you to input facial recognition data for logging in, which consists of slightly tilting and moving you head in every direction, so that the camera will get the best possible view. This whole process is for better facial recognition, and the camera does a perfect job at recognizing your face, even from the distance. The abovementioned four microphones also have a functionality, which is voice commands that can be used to control the entire system, and also voice chat with others. PlayStation VR Camera will recognize when you will say “PlayStation”, and it will begin the voice command function.

A real plus point for the PlayStation VR PS4 is that you can use both, PlayStation VR Controller Move, as well as the DualShock controller in order to easily control your VR experience at your convenience. If you don’t own the Move Controllers already, then I recommend buying these new fully improved and redesigned controllers, either in a pack of two or single. There are also controllers such as gun shaped ones, which will work with action games coming up real soon. The PlayStation Camera tracks the PlayStation VR Controller pretty well; however, you have to make sure that your setup is tight. Possibilities are limitless with two hand controls, for example, you can reload guns flawlessly, or hold the hood of a vehicle open while doing some stuff inside, and so on. One disadvantage though, is that it does not feature finger tracking, but to make up all that, they are relatively small, lightweight, and less unwieldy compared to its competitors.

The rubber headband feel very comfortable on your head, and it is flexible so it is very easy to slip on and off the headset. Despite the fact that it does not fold symmetrically, it is very compact to store and transport conveniently.

PlayStation 4 VR Headset feels so comfortable on your head, that you will not get tired of wearing it even if you are planning to use it for several hours. Even though you will feel warmth inside the headset over your ears, it will never be a reason for you to sweat, because it does not create a full seal,
