Curious how well it performs. coming from sony and it’s rich game
integration it’s expected to have many more game titles under the hood on
release than other platforms.

Did anyone go to test it out yet?

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

out of the box).

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