Here’s where you can try the PSVR ahead of launch in the UK

Sony’s virtual reality headset, the PlayStation VR, is almost here, but those of us in the UK will have a chance to test it out before launch.

GAME has announced it will host several demos of the headset at various stores around the UK as part of an extension to its ‘The Future of Play Tour’.

Six more stores have been added to the schedule, giving customers the chance to test out some of the PSVR launch titles.

The demos will be taking place at the following GAME stores:

Sat, Oct 1 to Thurs, Oct 6

Newcastle Metro
Fri, Oct 7 to Thurs, Oct 13

White City

Those interested in trying out the tech can sign up by visiting the official site, but you have to be 12 or older in order to take part.

GAME says there will be “limited, additional opportunities to try PSVR” for those who turn up without a booking.

The PSVR is set to launch on October 13 and will cost £349 in the UK and $399 in the US.
