New PlayStation VR – 10 Important Facts Before You Buy

Want a new PlayStation VR but unsure about what games to buy? Sony’s included a demo disk of the greatest PSVR games

The new PlayStation VR launches in exactly one month and, to help whet people’s appetite for the future of Sony hardware, the Japanese company has announced that it’ll be bundling a demo disc in with every PlayStation VR.

At the moment, all launch-day new PlayStation VR bundles will come with a copy of PSVR Worlds, but going forward every new PlayStation VR will come with a meaty demo disc containing trial versions of 18 virtual-reality games. If you like the games enough, you can even buy them directly from the PlayStation Store and get playing the full game within minutes – if your internet connection is fast enough, that is.

Every new PlayStation VR owner will be able to play:

  • Allumette
  • Battlezone
  • DriveClub VR
  • EVE: Valkyrie
  • Gnog
  • Harmonix Music VR
  • Headmaster
  • Here They Lie
  • Job Simulator
  • PlayStation VR Worlds
  • Resident Evil 7: Biohazard – Kitchen teaser
  • REZ Infinite
  • RIGS Mechanised Combat League
  • Thumper
  • Tumble VR
  • Until Dawn: Rush of Blood
  • Wayward Sky
  • Within

It’s unknown exactly what size slice of gameplay you’ll get from each demo, but we imagine it’ll be substantial enough to get a flavour for the different experiences PlayStation VR can offer. Including a demo is also a really smart way for Sony to help push PlayStation VR to new audiences through the power of its 40-million-strong PS4 install base.

Now it’s time to start wondering if Sony will do the same with a slew of 4K HDR game demos for PS4 Pro.
