Sony is teaming up with Best Buy and GameStop to give gamers a taste of PlayStation VR before its release.
There are currently more than 30 GameStop and Best Buy stores offering in-store demos of Sony’s upcoming VR headset. There will also be more locations offering opportunities to try out PlayStation VR in the future. Sony plans to add close to 300 demo stations to stores across the United States and Canada starting on June 24.
Sony will be offering demos for games such as SUPERHYPERCUBE, EVE: Valkyrie, PlayStation VR Worlds, and Battlezone. More games will be available closer to the launch of the Headset.
Sony’s Vice President, John Koller posted his hopes for the demo phase of Playstation VR on Sony’s PlayStation Blog. “The excitement around PS VR has been enormous and once you try it, you’ll understand why. As all of you would expect, it’s our goal at PlayStation to deliver the best and richest VR gaming experiences, and we can’t wait for you to put that headset on and be transported into these worlds.”
PS VR is set to release worldwide on October 13th 2016.
