    Good VR starter games

    The VR headset itself is great especially the 3D sound with headphones. I have small ears so the earbuds that come with it tend to fall out if I'm playing a pretty active game, but we also got a nice set of over the ear headphones that fit nicely over the headset. Your head can get pretty warm in the whole rig if you're playing an active game, but it's a good set up. The two games in this bundle both just use the regular controller to maneuver the character while you observe the area. Astrobot Rescue Mission is an extension of the PS Room and VR Room where you are playing through levels to rescue all the little bots from where they were scattered. Each level also has a chameleon for you to find which is what prompts you to look around everywhere including over the edge of the play area where your astrobot is moving, around walls, and even behind you. The chameleons unlock bonus challenge levels that range from races to timed boss fights. The overall gameplay reminded me a lot of Little Big Planet and what a 3D environment in that game would be like. Definitely a fun game that you can easily come back to without having to remember what you were doing or where you were trying to go. Moss is more of an in depth fantasy adventure. The graphics are really nice and you go between seeing the narrative in a book to jumping into the book and helping a brave little mouse named Quill. Again, you control Quill with the regular PS controller and you also help her by manipulating the environment like moving giant blocks out of her way and manipulating enemies to help her. There's mini puzzles to figure out how to get Quill to the next area as well as action when Quill needs to fight or dodge past enemies to move on. Overall it's a good VR setup and two really great games to get you started. I'm definitely looking forward to having more time and a better space to play these games.

    Brilliant design and great display

    My experience with VR has been amazing to near awful. My HTC Vive is simply amazing for room scale games as well as motion based games. My Samsung Odyysey + WMR is great for simulations like Project Cars 2. The Oculus Rift I had just wasn't that great. The display's colors were off and the brightness caused a lot of eye strain. I also got motion sickness from the Rift. The PSVR is simply the best for shooters due to the Playstation Aim controller and Firewall Zero Hour. The tracking could be better though I love how quick and easy it is to setup the system. The screen resolution (1080p) isn't very good though you will hardly notice it when battling enemies online or when soaring as an Eagle in Eagle Flight. Just a fantastic system for a fantastic console. For $200... This is a no brainer... BUY BUY BUY! I recommend the following VR games: Eagle Flight, Firewall: Zero Hour, Farpoint, Resident Evil 7, The Persistence, Moss, and Astrobot. Take it easy for the first few weeks with the VR system because you need to get your "VR legs." Try less intense games first like Eagle Flight or Beat Saber before running into zombies in Resident Evil 7 or blasting mechs in RIGS.

    Great VR experience at an even better price

    I have been waiting for a good VR experience to become more affordable. I have wanted for some time to "try it out". Until recently, I would have had to shell out 2 or 3 grand for a gaming pc and a ton more cash for the VR equipment. For someone with full-time job, wife, children, etc...; time and money are both precious commodities. Now here is SONY to the rescue! A great product with awesome build quality and many excellent VR titles, the PSVR is the perfect way to test the VR waters and not break the bank. The experience is not perfect for the following reasons: 1. The headset is wired back to the PS4, so there is not the freedom of movement. 2. The headset does not have the resolution of the BIG BOY/ BIG MONEY pc VR rigs (Although it looks AMAZING!) 3. There is no whole room sensors/tracking Having said that, PSVR provides an AWESOME experience at an even better price. A TERRIFIC VALUE! Thank you SONY!

    VR is fun

    So far I've only played Skyrim in VR, so I can't say much about the bundles games, but the VR is so much fun. There are a few cables you have to connect from the VR box and your PS4 which is a little of a pain on cable management, but not a deal breaker. The headset has a long cable (not wireless) which is fine, but it's not easily extended without a special cable. Same thing with the camera cable. Not a dealbreaker, but not ideal which is why I give it 4 stars. You can simply use a longer HDMI cable if you want to place your setup elsewhere in the room away from your TV, thus extending out where you put it, but I prefer to keep the PS4 at the TV in the room I have it in. Since the headset is difficult to extend, this limits running that cable under the carpet or overhead to where I want to sit.

    I was on the fence about getting PSVR but with a Black Friday sale and gift cards, the system would only cost me $50 out of pocket...so I decided why not jump in. And my word, I am sad I waited so long. It really is something that you need to strap on your head to understand how cool it is. I have pulled it out when friends come over and people are amazed by their experience. When I started playing Moss, I would just stop in every new section of the world to just look around, blown away by what I saw around me. If this is the start of VR, I can’t wait for where it goes in a couple years. Is it perfect? No. Is it probably as good as the PC units? Doubt it. But as a first generation VR set that you can literally just plug-in and play, it is worth the money.

    I bought this black friday. I'm glad did. I had no idea how fun and immersive VR made you feel. You feel like your in the world, which connects you to the characters more. Just try London heist in VR worlds you will get what I mean. Everyone needs to experience VR. This a great beginning to VR and its only going to get better . Looking forward to the imagination of developers in the VR game space. There are so many possibilities. Not just for games with action but games with calming relaxing experiences. It is only limited by the developers imagination. VR is not going anywhere. And this is a great beginning. This is a amazing bundle also. Both games are awesome.

    If you have a PS4, and you’re even considering VR, this is the bundle to start with. The headset is comfortable enough for long (multi-hour) play sessions, although if you have glasses, be careful: you could scratch the lenses of the headset if you’re not careful. Motion tracking is good, not great. Expect very minor, occasional jumps in head tracking that you aren’t expecting. So far I’ve only played through AstroBot. If you like platformers, like Mario, then you’re going to love this bundle. Downside, you don’t get the Move Controllers, which are roughly $100 outside of this bundle. Plenty of games don’t need them, but then again, plenty do. Just depends on what you want to play.

    VR the Experience

    PSVR is a great way to experience virtual reality. Sure the image is not a clear as 1080p but you get lost in the world you are in anyways. Moss and Astro Bot are two great games that immerse yourself into the worlds they create. PSVR bundles has other games that comes with them. I would have preferred Borderlands 2 but it was not out when sale was on for $200. Remember you have to have a playstation 4 to use the vr headset, it does not work without each other. VR I hope is here to stay. It's so immersive. The controls for move controller is somewhat awakard at times but when the ps5 comes out maybe they will have a VR 2 with an analog stick. Either way, buy now and experience what VR has to offer.

    A Really Great Product, But Not For Everyone

    This is the 2nd PSVR that I've dealt with, the first one also from Best Buy. I don't know if Sony did a slight redesign of the headset or not, but this one feels much better than the 1st one. It's more comfortable on my head and I sweat much less while wearing it than before. The headset display is still not quite as clear as watching it on the TV directly. Motion sickness hasn't been a problem for me personally, but others watching the TV while I played have experienced symptoms. It is still imperfect technology, but Astro Bot Rescue Mission is the best full application of the concept PSVR symbolizes for Sony! Moss is also a nice little game, sweet story, well executed!

    We bought this for our kids along with PlayStation 4 Pro and I tried it and I just could not believe how amazing this technology is! While in a game I could stop and look behind me I was completely surrounded in 3D world, totally immersed! I though WoW if we accepted this technology as every day tool we would not need to build office buildings or even schools you could just put this on and go to that work conference room meeting! It’s fun to watch kids pointing at ceiling behind then and all around room. Absolute buy we stood in line for Avatar at Disney for 3 hours for a 2 minute experience and this is every bit as good right at hone!

    Expensive but cool

    This is a pretty cool addition for your PS4 if you are getting bored with traditional game play. One drawback is that you might need to buy expensive accessories depending on the games you purchase and you need to sit far enough away from the TV to really enjoy the experience (only because of how the camera tracks you). The headset is comfortable even after hours of game play but does lack a way to focus the image (outside of moving it around as sony recommends). I would rate this 5 stars if you could adjust the focus. Ultimately, it's a great buy if you don't mind spending as much money as you did on your console for a new experience.

    I wasn't a believer in the whole VR thing. Didn't think it could be THAT big of a deal. I was completely wrong! I took a gamble and grabbed this bundle over Black Friday for $200, which turned out to be an incredible deal. I would've paid $300 now, knowing how fun this thing is. My only major gripe with it is the cord. If you're standing up/moving around you can accidentally step on it, moving the headset & skewing your vision of what's happening. Overall though, it's an amazing experience! Also, Astro Bot & Moss are both great games showing off how cool VR can be.

    I fell off of gaming a few years back due to being a full time student but now graduated AND with the black Friday deals on the ps4 and psvr, I decided to see if I was missing anything. Oh man was I missing out! VR takes gaming to a whole new level. I don't think I will every go back to flat screen gaming! I wear Ray Ban Wayfarer prescription glasses and the headsets fits very comfortably. The PS4 Slim handles the included vr games with no problem. I can see how this hardware is easily worth the full cost of 300 bucks. Oh and don't forget the move controllers!

    Virtual Reality gaming is incredible! This PSVR really puts you INSIDE the game world in a way that traditional "flat" video games on a TV just cannot match. The feeling of actually being inside the game world is incredible. The Astro Bot and Moss games included with this bundle are an awesome way to get introduced to VR gaming. Astro Bot is just so much fun to play and always puts a smile on my face every time I play through the levels. Moss is a wonderful adventure game with a charming little mouse character. Highly recommended!

    I bought a PS4 because I wanted the Spider-Man bundle. I loved the graphics! I thought the VR bundle would add to my gaming experience. The headset I had to get used to. I can only play for a half hour to an hour the most. I lobe Astro Bot! It is such a cute and simple game. A perfect game for me to learn the VR landscape. I’m very happy with my purchase!

    Astro Bot is amazing. Haven’t got a chance to play miss yet but will. First time using it I got a little nauscious after about 30 minutes but that was expected from what I read about VR in general. Wish I held off for a little longer just because the Borderlands bundle came out for only $50 more. (Reason for the 4 and not 5 star) Astro Bot is a blast to play and pretty challenging. Time to start building my VR library.

    This completely surpassed my expectations. The last time I played VR was years ago, and it was nowhere near as polished as it is now. Sure, the VR can be a little grainy at times, but the responsiveness and depth to some of these games can be overwhelming. If you have a PS4 and were on the fence, I can definitely recommend picking one up, as it has absolutely scratched my VR itch. Works with YouTube/Hulu as well for a few VR videos.

    I bought this as a gift for my man and he loves this thing. The head set is adjustable so it fits everyone in the family. Nobody got motion sickness, nobody fell over like you see in the YouTube videos. I got the bundle so it came with Astro Bot and Moss which were perfect games for someone learning the system. Doom for the VR is a little more advanced. Anyhow, overall it was worth it.. Great buy. Im happy with my choice.

    IMO the definitive PSVR bundle, includes what are easily 2 of the best titles available for the platform today in Moss and Astrobot. Astrobot is the killer app VR needed, to me the jump was the equivalent of playing Super Mario 64 for the first time, its that big of a jump for the platforming genre
