Once everything is set up, there will be games to take you into different world.

More than 230 developers and publishers are apparently working on titles now, and the few we know about include a robot sports game “Rigs”, a horror title “Until Dawn: Rush of Blood”, a physical game “Tumble VR”, and a multi-game made to let you experience much of what VR can do in “PlayStation VR Worlds”.

Not to be left out, DICE and Lucasfilm are working on a new version of “Star Wars Battlefront” to let you be properly immersed in Star Wars the way only a video game can.

Rigs looks very interesting.

Entertainment will also be delivered through the PS VR system with a “cinematic mode”, which takes advantage of our brains and the trickery of seeing a screen up close and in focus to simulate a large virtual cinema screen to watch photos, videos, and more, while 360 degree content will also be made available for use on the headset.

Now for the price: $549.95.

Yep, it’ll cost a little over $500 to grab the PS VR in Australia, though remember that this price doesn’t include a PlayStation 4 console which is needed to make this headset work.
