With a nice set of headphones and with cinematic mode set on "Medium," it provides a great experience with one caveat: it can get uncomfortable to wear that headset after a couple of hours.Of course, this is a problem with VR gaming and every other use as well.And if you guessed you can't see that entire "Large" screen without moving your head, you are right.
Unfortunately, that "Small" screen moves with you as you turn your head, which makes it poor for gaming. The Medium seems to hit a sweet spot for gaming, but the Large can be great for some games that don't require you to take in all of the screen at once. All of the virtual reality headsets suffer from the "screen door effect", which is essentially the ability to distinguish individual pixels on the screen because your eyes are only a few inches from the display.So if you switch the HDMI IN from your PS4's cable to another HDMI cable, you can actually play XBOX ONE, XBOX 360, Wii U or any games from a console that has an HDMI OUT port. One caveat here is that the VR processing unit must still be hooked up to the PS4 via the USB cable to help control the cinematic mode, and, obviously, your PS4 must still be turned on.Let's not forget the meditative experience available in virtual reality.It may sound repetitive, but Play Station VR supports virtual reality video.We've covered film designed specifically for VR, but what may be even more exciting is the prospect of home video and 360 degree photographs.
