This is a surprisingly generous offering, and should give you a diverse range of experiences to see what the device is truly capable of.

Releasing a demo disc such as this also gives us the idea that Sony may release virtual reality demos on the PlayStation Store in the future.

PlayStation VR is set to launch on October 13, 2016, and could well be on display at Sony’s PlayStation Meeting later today.
