About the Product
Create an immersive experience with this HTC Vive virtual reality system. The VR headset with 110-degree field of view and front-facing camera provides an enhanced visual experience through a mix of virtual and actual surroundings. This HTC Vive virtual reality system includes two base stations and two wireless controllers for a complete game-ready setup.
Designed with gamers in mind, PlayStation VR delivers an entirely new world of gaming with a level of immersion unseen on home consoles on some of the most highly anticipated titles of 2016, including Star Wars Battlefront and other games like PlayStation VR World, Golem and RIGS Mechanized Combat League. The LEDs around the PlayStation VR headset, on the DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller and the PlayStation Move motion controller are tracked by the PlayStation Camera, providing an incredibly precise capture of your natural movement in virtual space.
