There are two types of people in the world: those who play racing games in cockpit view, and those who prefer a behind-the-car chase camera. I’ve always been firmly in the latter camp, since I tend to play arcade-style games like Outrun and Ridge Racer where judging the arc of a drift is important. But I do admire those who play racers from the first-person perspective, and sometimes wish I were able to enjoy the more immersive experience it affords.

Virtual reality might be what makes this happen for me. It’s not like I want a chase cam when driving an actual car — spatial awareness and depth perception makes it easy to judge corners and surroundings in real life. And in VR, you get stereoscopic vision and the ability to look around yourself without even thinking about it. I’ve played a fair few driving games on the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive at home, but my experience with Driveclub VR at Tokyo Game Show has been the best yet.


I did a quick Ctrl + F for “pro” and I didn’t see any mention of the PS4 Pro. All I saw was:

It’s one of the best-looking games on the regular PlayStation 4, but can only manage 30 frames per second, far beyond the minimum you need for VR. On PS VR, it runs at 60 frames a second reprojected to 120, which does feel smooth enough — there’s an obvious graphical hit, with several of the game’s effects being dialed back or removed, but it still looks like Driveclub.

What are the chances this was being shown using the Pro?




  • Game modes: Online virtual reality multiplayer race modes and an action-packed single player career are joined by drifting and time trial challenges.
  • Tracks: New and classic Driveclub tracks are brought to life through the power of PlayStation VR, including five all-new Urban locations.
  • A closer look: More than 80 cars are recreated with immaculate detail for players to explore up close with Inspection Mode.
  • Cruise control: A little time to kick back, open the throttle or just coast and explore any track, in any country at your leisure in Cruise Mode.
  • Virtual passenger: An immersive thrill ride through exciting replays of hot laps as players watch themselves handle their greatest challenges from a unique viewpoint in Passenger Mode.


Update to previous post:

We’re proud to announce that Driveclub VR will be available exclusively for PlayStation VR on October 13 this year. The game will be available as both a physical Blu-ray release and a digital download via PlayStation Store. The digital download via PlayStation Store will be priced at $39.99.

Because Driveclub is and always has been about the community that surrounds it, we’ve also included a digital upgrade for existing Season Pass owners as of September 28, 2016, priced at $19.99.

The majority of the game was completed by Evolution, with the remainder carried out by a dedicated team comprised of Evolution Studio veterans, several of which now are also members of the WWS Immersive Technology Group — so you can be assured that Driveclub VR is in safe hands.

And in other PS VR news:

If you’ve been waiting to get your hands on Sony’s PlayStation VR, read on for some good news.

Best Buy — the home of the latest in virtual reality — will open early to sell the immersive gaming device.

In just two weeks, about 350 Best Buy stores across the country will open at 12:01 a.m. ET Oct. 13 so you can buy and experience PlayStation VR.

That means stores will open at 11:01 p.m. Oct. 12 in the Central time zone, 10:01 p.m. Mountain time and 9:01 p.m. for those on the West Coast.

Find the store nearest you and plan accordingly.

If you can’t get there for the early openings, fear not. There will be limited quantities of PlayStation VR available at each Best Buy store nationwide the next day, as well as on

Some will be available the next day without a preorder?!?!?!

And Target has some preorders up right now!

This looks… actually kinda fun.


I’m getting PSVR fever. And the only cure, is more YouTube videos.

Anyone remember this game? It’s rumored to launch with the PSVR.

Also, here is a full list of everything coming and it’s massive:

Who here is getting one at launch again? And what’s your address? And what hours are you not at home?


I toyed with selling my core unit preorder, but they’re currently only selling on ebay for a little over $500, which hardly seems worth it to me. So I’ll more than likely have it next week.

Looking forward to Batman and Rez. The Assembly and games like it look cool. Farpoint is intriguing. I’m hoping Ace Combat is awesome.



Good review, thanks for posting. So what is the tally? Who is getting this thing at launch other than me, smurf and cod?


I don’t have a preorder. I have the money set aside (if I can stop buying LEGO Dimensions sets, that is)… I just need to find one sometime after launch. That’ll be the tricky part.


Giant Bomb is doing an all-day stream of the PSVR.

Gerstmann, who barely felt any nausea when playing with the Oculus and Vive, had to quit playing Batman after like 20 minutes. Shit seems to constantly jitter around when you’re stationary.


Headset is huge, but comfortable and relatively light.
System is easy to set up.
$400 is a lot less than the other guys.
This is the VR system to invest in right now, especially if you have a Playstation


Counter point:

PlayStation VR is inferior to the competition in several significant
ways. It’s also less expensive and easier to use, and for all its flaws
it still manages to communicate the goofy, surreal joy of modern virtual
reality. Time will tell if that makes it good enough. Best to wait and



If you want game console virtual reality right now, the PlayStation VR is your only choice. And it’s a pretty great one.

Engadget - 84

Good on Sony for actually delivering a decent VR headset that comes in much cheaper than the competition. It’s even more impressive that it managed to get a decent amount of developers onboard for the initial push. Nonetheless, the PS VR is hard to recommend for most people. Even if you’re intrigued by virtual reality, it’s worth waiting for prices to go down and for the overall market to settle.


In terms of recommending a purchase, what’s clear is that Sony has managed to overcome most of the principal hurdles, and has handed in a mainstream VR platform for console money that is highly compelling and as much I enjoyed my time with it, there are three significant arguments against investing in it right now, as I see it. First of all, extended gameplay sessions in VR could ultimately prove unsettling on your wellbeing. As relatively inexpensive as it is, will you get the same return from PSVR as a conventional console platform if you’re fundamentally limited by the time you can spend using it? And secondly there’s the fact that the same financial outlay next month buys you PlayStation 4 Pro. For Sony to release two major pieces of gaming hardware in consecutive months just seems too close.

That’s a dumb argument, in my opinion.

Game Informer - C-

PlayStation VR falls under the same argument that has plagued the ongoing war of PC gaming versus console gaming for years. By the technical standards, Oculus and Vive on PC are stronger showcases for VR. However, PlayStation VR is cheaper and does offer a legitimate virtual-reality experience that is more comfortable and easier to use than its competitors. For the console-exclusive gamers looking to enter the realm of virtual reality, PlayStation VR gets the job done. You can enter virtual worlds, get a sense that you’re really there, and have new interactive gaming experiences unlike anything you’ve seen before on consoles. You just might have a little bit of a headache as a result.


In the end, your purchasing decision should come down to whether you think you fit the bill of being an early adopter. Not everyone can justify spending hundreds on a peripheral, especially one that’s still in the experimental phases of delivering state-of-the-art entertainment. But if you’ve got the money to spare, and want to share in the excitement of VR’s infinite possibilities, then PlayStation VR feels like the most sensible choice.


If you want to experience a VR world beyond what mobile offerings like Google Cardboard and Gear VR provide, then save up your pennies. This is the VR system for people looking to take the next step into a virtual world.


Price is the major factor with VR. You get what you pay for; the Vive is a superior device but costs a whole lot more. Meanwhile, the Oculus is fractionally better than the PSVR but doesn’t have the catalogue of games already available on Sony’s device, one of it’s major selling points. For an introductory level VR headset, the PSVR is a fantastic device and an even better introduction to the world of Virtual Reality.

IGN UK - 8.5/10

Should you run out and buy one? That depends. The technology is astonishing but still in its infancy, and VR games that rival current console blockbusters are a long way off, so it won’t be as immediately useful as you might expect for a $400 to $500 price. However, it’s a lot of fun to be on the forefront of something as exciting as VR. Some of the best times I’ve had with my VR headsets are from wowing people who come over and try it for the first time, and that never gets old.

New York Times

But the scarce number of good games available today, combined with the fatigue you will experience after 30 minutes of game play, may drive you back to gaming on your smartphone or television screen

Next Gen Gaming Blog

Easily the most comfortable headset on the market, Sony have found the perfect sweet spot between price and performance. My time with the hardware so far has been a genuine joy, and and whilst I still think that VR will be a novelty for some time to come, this is the biggest opportunity that the technology has to hit the mainstream, and I sincerely hope it lives up to its potential.

PlayStation LifeStyle

The PlayStation VR and its software provides the wow factor necessary to create the word of mouth buzz something like VR is going to need to become truly mainstream. For gamers, PlayStation VR is a must-have and will no doubt become one of the hottest sellers this holiday season.

PlayStation Universe - 9.0

PlayStation VR does have its teething problems, but they are, for the most part, quickly overcome thanks to this being a highly accessible and consumer-friendly VR unit. Whether that will be enough to see it thrive remains a relative unknown, but a consistently-growing library of specifically tailored games and experiences will go a long way to gaining a significant foothold.

Push Square

PlayStation VR is not perfect, but you could point to much, much worse first-generation products than this. Sony’s headset is light and comfortable, and for the price that it’s being sold for, it offers a very good virtual reality experience on consumer-grade hardware that you already own. The motion tracking is excellent, the visuals good enough to provide that all-important sense of presence, and the game library already fairly large.

Yes, there can be criticisms levelled at the resolution of the screen – an issue which the more expensive masks on the market also share to a lesser extent – and the sheer number of cables and items required to get the experience running correctly can be headache-inducing. But once you’ve got it all hooked up – and the noisy Processor Unit placed out of the way – the rewards are unquestionable; the ability to be somewhere else, to be someone else a gigantic stride forward in this industry’s capacity to provide true escapism.

The Verge - 8.5

At the same time, holding out for total perfection is the wrong move. I don’t want PlayStation VR to become the only headset that people build for; it’s just not ambitious enough. But even this early in the game, Sony is providing a home for interesting, low-key experiences that highlight some of the medium’s strengths. More than any single piece of cutting-edge technology, the key to making VR succeed is just getting more people to use VR. And with PlayStation VR, Sony has just made that a lot easier

VG 247

It’s a lot of money – you could buy a console and a bunch of good games for the same price – and you need to accept that this isn’t the future of video games. It’s a new direction, and an interesting one, for sure. But it’s not going to replace your console and TV set-up anytime in the next 10 years. At this stage there’s a lot of fun to be had with VR and the games I’ve played so far show variety, with a handful offering up a genuinely new experience. But as with any launch, some games are great and others mediocre.

Or at least Jeff.

And here are the only opinions that matter.*
