Best Playstation VR deals in August 2017

Best PSVR deals: We’ve rounded up all the best discounts and deals on the PlayStation VR so you can rest assured you’re getting the best price possible on both the headset and accessories.

Virtual reality could be the biggest change to home entertainment since the TV. The ability to completely immerse yourself in your favourite films and games might sound prohibitively expensive, but, with PlayStation VR, it needn’t cost an arm and a leg. Here you’ll find the best PSVR deals around.

What is PlayStation VR?

PSVR is currently the only virtual reality system for a games console, and Sony wants to take advantage of its immersive capacities to revolutionise how we see, feel, and play games. Though the headset works on the PS4, the more powerful PS4 Pro has the internal grunt to make it the best place to play PSVR games, allowing for better performance and frame rates.

With a beautifully curved headset that feels premium and comfortable on the head, the PSVR offers a premium VR experience at a relatively-affordable price when compared to the likes of the top-end HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. All that led us to give the PSVR a top five-star score in our review.
