When connected to a television set, the PlayStation VR menu interface will appear as a moving rectangular object that shifts with the position of the user’s head. It features several options specifically intended for the wearer, including a reset on the screen position in virtual space, size, brightness and manual headset positioning adjustments.

As for the games, Sony’s PlayStation VR launch bundles and core packages both include their own demo disc featuring a large variety of playable demos. These include Allumette, Battlezone, DriveClub VR, EVE: Valkyrie, PlayStation VR Worlds, Thumper, Wayward Sky and eleven others, just to name a few.

Sony has also setup a virtual showcase called PlayRoom VR, similar to Facebook’s Oculus App Store and HTC’s Viveport platform. The library features a variety of unique game experiences that even allow everyone in the same room to join multiplayer games on the television set while a single user is secluded away with the headset.
