PlayStation VR has launched worldwide, is compatible with over 40 million PS4 systems sitting people’s homes and there are 30 games ready to experience. There will be close to 50 games available for the headset by the end of 2016, with more titles and many VR compatible games on the way in early 2017.

These include Resident Evil 7, Star Wars Battlefront – Rogue One: X-wing VR Mission, Star Trek: Bridge Crew and more. There are more games and experiences in the works too, as there are over 230 developers and publishers currently working on PSVR titles.

The majority of games do not require PlayStation Move Controllers, just a DualShock 4, but the PS Camera is a must for your headset to work. And there is another peripheral on the way which you can add to the collection, the PSVR Aim Controller.


For those you expecting your PSVR to arrive today or are planning to pick one up, below you will find some links which should help you get things off and running. Should you encounter issues with calibration, the camera, controller, head-tracking or other bumps in the road, we have a guide which will hopefully help you sort those out.

You will also find a review, a list of launch titles, and other interesting PSVR-related links below.

PlayStation VR is now available worldwide. In the North America the standalone headset will run you $399 in the US and CAD$549 in Canada.

In the UK and Europe it will run you £349.99 and €399.99, respectively.
