Almost every booth here has some kind of VR demo and a huge lineup to try it out. Today we dived into the PlayStation VR helmet, a $399 accessory for a $349 game console. While that sounds like a lot, especially if you’re not entirely sure what VR is or why you should care, Sony’s offering undercuts the current «best-in-class» by a few hundred dollars.

The biggest question is whether this price cut is accompanied by a performance drop, which is pretty easy to answer.

First, at one point or another, I’ve held just about every VR headset on my skull. To say I was excited to finally get my hands on a PlayStation VR is an understatement. Part of the excitement is that the headset will be the most affordable form of virtual reality for consumers, financially speaking. If you already own a PlayStation 4, your $400 headset and $40 camera are VR ready.

As I waited in line, waited in line like a kid waiting to get on his favorite rollercoaster, I was told that I could experience Rez Infinite, RIGS: Mechanized Combat League, Job Simulator, or Playroom VR. It turned out that I had no choice in this matter and instead it was based solely on which station finished its demo first. For example, I hoped that I would find myself in the world of Rez Infinite. Instead, I got a demo of RIGS: Mechanized Combat League. I just heard about it for the first time yesterday during the PlayStation VR, and it looked like the virtual equivalent of Rocket League. But before we talk about the game, let’s talk about the headset.
