Playstation VR should optically track both rotation and orientation of your
head; as well as two move controllers. It is basically a lower resolution
but more comfortable Oculus experience that will focus on forward seating
and standing experiences (in contrast to the Vive's focus on "room-scale"
out of the box).

The reviews sound promising though so I'll definitely try to check it out -
thanks for the heads up!
