Sony has just released the PlayStation virtual reality (VR) headset last Oct. 13, and their fans are now raving over the differences of the VR headset from its pricier competitors like the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive. With the hit release of Sony's VR headset, a significant change in the way video games are played is just right around the corner. Players can now immerse and strap themselves in for the ongoing virtual reality hype.

The main difference of the PlayStation VR headset from other VR gaming platforms lies in its capability to be run with only the use of PlayStation 4 (PS4), unlike the expensive gaming computers needed to make the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive run smoothly.

Sony's virtual reality headset can be used with all PS4 systems and is priced at £349 or roughly  $424 in the U.K. An estimated quantity of 50 VR projects are also expected to be available before the year ends, according to a report from Tech Advisor.

The newest VR headset boasts an impressive collection of virtual gaming worlds coupled with brand new features for entertainment. As stated on the official website of the Playstation VR, the device is equipped with an Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) display, a panel size of 5.7 inches, and an astounding resolution of 1920 X 1080 Red, Green, Blue (RGB).

The VR headset also features a field of view of approximately 100 degrees and the device itself is equipped with six-axis motion sensing systems (three-axis gyroscope, and three-axis accelerometer).

Some of the popular game titles that can be played in the VR platform include an X-wing mission for "Star Wars Battlefront: Rogue One," a story featuring "Batman Arkham," and the relatively new sci-fi and adventure game "Farpoint."
