Outline

PlayStation®VR combines the PlayStation4® system and the PlayStation®Camera to create a virtual reality system that only PlaySation® could bring to life. Once the player places the VR headset on their head, they are enveloped in a powerful 3D world that responds in real time to their head moves and turns. Images can be displayed in 360 degrees, and a uniquely developed 3D audio technology creates a rich, immersive soundscape. By using a controller to explore the environment and interact with virtual characters, the player will feel as if they actually exist in the world of the game.
