PS4 Pro vs Playstation VR

PS4 Pro vs Playstation VR: Which should you buy? Head-to-Head

Should you buy the PS4 Pro or Playstation VR headset? With a hypothetical £350 ($400) in their pockets, Brett Phipps (@InverteBrett) and Ced Yuen (@CedYuen) go Head-to-Head over which of Sony’s new gaming hardware they would buy.

Brett says…

I would definitely get the Playstation VR (PSVR). Virtual reality is absolutely incredible and literally provides a whole new dimension to gaming.

Unlike the PS4 Pro, you don’t need a super high-end 4K HDR TV to get the most out of the Playstation VR — it’s just plug and play!

Having said that, you do need to have the PlayStation camera to use the PSVR and the optional Move controllers make a huge difference to how immersive and interactive games are. If you don’t have either, be prepared to spend another £100 on top of the headset itself.

Ced Says…

If you are a proper, hardcore gamer – there’s really no choice. The PS4 Pro is the most powerful console you can buy and will make games (new and old) look and play better.

It’s true you’ll want a 4K HDR TV for the best experience, but you’ll still see a significant upgrade in graphics and smoother frame rates even if you’re gaming on a normal HD TV.

The best part is developers get to choose how to allocate all the extra power, so the Rise of the Tomb Raider for example doesn’t even support HDR, but instead offers better visuals and lighting.
