If you’ve got a PS4 but you’ve been putting off upgrading to a virtual reality system, hold out no longer! We’ve got a deal for you.
Argos is selling a cracking bundle that gets you the Sony PlayStation VR headset, a PS4 VR Aim Controller, and the Farpoint PS4 VR game, all for just £374.99. That’s £49.99 less than the £424.98 price you’d pay if you bought the items separately.
Of course, you’ll still need to own a PS4 for the PSVR headset to work.
We gave the PlayStation VR headset a rare 5/5 score, praising the device’s amazing selection of games, simple setup, comfortable design, and the impressive value for money. Here’s our verdict:
“PlayStation VR is simply the best virtual reality headset you can buy right now. It’s cheap while not compromising on performance and quality. The headset is simply stunning and incredibly comfortable to wear, and the games already available are some of the best VR experiences I’ve ever played.”
“Compared to the Oculus Rift it offers a far more comfortable gaming experience at a much lower price point. Against the Vive it may not offer the level of detail and immersion, but is pretty darn close and doesn’t require the installation of additional sensors in your home and will not demand as much space for many games, either.”
“Don’t think of PSVR as the “cheap” alternative to what the PC has on offer right now. It’s definitely worth investing in a couple of Move Controllers to enjoy the true experience in all games, though.”
We weren’t massively impressed by Farpoint as a game, but Games Editor Brett Phipps reckons that the Aim Controller is a “VR game changer”. We gave Farpoint a 2.5/5 score, praising the VR controller, the satisfying feeling of shooting, and the good amount of movement options.
Here’s our verdict:
“Farpoint is a dull first-person shooter made enjoyable by a simply brilliant controller. The only reason to buy this game is to experience it with the Aim Controller, and I’m almost tempted to recommend that VR enthusiasts buy the bundle for the Aim alone. It’s simply that good.”
“It’s a real shame that Farpoint hasn’t delivered, however. PSVR is screaming out for another big-hitter to give early adopters something to dive into, but its short and uneventful campaign, weak design and dull visuals mean it won’t live long in the memory. We can only hope that future VR shooters take full advantage of the excellent Aim Controller.”
