The Hottest Topic—PSVR

The deserved protagonist of GDC 2016! 2016 is called as “the first year of VR”. Early before, two of three VR giants, Oculus Rift and HTC released their VR products, Oculus Rift and HTC vive, which stirred big waves in the industry. As the last chapter of the trio, PSVR definitely becomes the protagonist of GDC this year. The $399 price make all VR lovers cheer. Although it requires PS4 to cooperate and is released formally in October, people’s passion on it is amazing: the pre-order on Amazon shows “sold out” in just several minutes! Besides, right after the announcement of PSVR, its exclusive games release new screenshots and details.
