PlayStation VR sold like crazy, thanks in part to its amazing collection of games. Create the best Batman experience, see what it’s like to live the life of an eagle, survive the zombie apocalypse and ride hundreds of high-performance cars are just scratches on the surface.
While you’re taking a break from gaming, you might be wondering what else your glowing headset can do. Here are a few non-gaming things you can try to get the most out of your PlayStation VR.
- Watch some impressive 360-degree videos
- Turn your living room into a theater
- Relive memories with your photos in VR
- Check out adult content
- Experiment with other operating systems
- See your future
Watch some impressive 360-degree videos
Free apps like Littlstar and Within have some amazing videos to watch on PlayStation VR. It’s best to sit comfortably without taking your head off — you’ll want to look around while the video is playing.
This is a great opportunity to plunge into a world that is not usually seen. Some of the best options will allow you to venture into the wetlands or dive into the sea for a truly immersive experience. To help you decide what to watch first, check out the best VR videos to watch on PSVR.

Turn your living room into a theater
One of the best parts of PlayStation VR is the near-total absence of the «doorway» effect. The crisp picture is very good for watching regular movies and TV shows on apps like Netflix and Hulu.
Put on your headset, make popcorn and sit in your virtual theater. The screen is huge, the sound is as loud as you want, and the floor isn’t sticky.

Relive memories with your photos in VR
PS4 Media Player is a powerful application that retrieves media from a connected USB stick or, if you have one, a media server. Check out all your vacation photos from last year, and even take a look at any 360-degree media you’ve created or uploaded.
Just turn on the VR mode in the media player options menu, relax and enjoy. Keep in mind that any movies or TV shows you have on your USB storage device or media server can also be played internally.
Check out adult content
Porn has driven the entertainment industry forward for years, and that hasn’t stopped with VR. Like Rift and Vive, you can watch adult videos on PlayStation VR.
A great setup guide has already been written, so if you’re of legal age, go crazy.
