Blur the line between gaming and reality with the processor unit’s various functions. This includes 3D audio processing, Social Screen (mirroring mode, separate mode), and Cinematic mode.
Despite all this tech, the headset is designed as to feel as if you’re wearing nothing. The headset offers a seamless fit which also evenly distributes it’s weight.
Let others join in your experience with the Social Screen and connect to you TV via and HDMI cable. Project what you see and let them watch as you lose yourself in a whole new world.
There is currently a small number of PS4 games custom built to cater to the device. RIGS Mechanized Combat League and VR Worlds are among them.
