PlayStation VR Launch Games List Phil Williams October 13, 2016 Gaming, Sony, VR Today is an exciting day for PlayStation. The PlayStation VR is finally here, with an arsenal of games releasing with it. For many gamers the price tag of owning an HTC Vive, or Occulus Rift has been holding them back from exploring this new world of Virtual Reality. Now PS VR has made it a lot more affordable. The Vive & Rift have been out for a while now. Will the lower costs of owning the PS VR be the deciding factor in this building Virtual Reality war? The launch price for the PlayStation VR is starting at $400. Or for an extra $100 you can pick up a bundle that includes 2 Move Controllers, and the PlayStation Camera. You probably thought the move controllers died when they pretty much failed with the PS3. PlayStation is bringing the technology back for its new virtual endeavor. We have a lot of games here to check out. I thought it would be nice to compile all of the games descriptions, best videos, and launch prices all into one post. I’m not looking forward to putting this article together. PlayStation has done a great job of seeing that they launched with a lot of variety. Please let us know what games your excited about, what you think about PS VR, or your predictions on this developing VR war in the comments below. #1. 100ft Robot Golf Video Source – GameSpot 100ft Robot Golf is a real time golf game where you get to control impossibly large robots on their quest for par.
