Once again, Best Buy’s your home for the latest in virtual reality. We’re one of the first retailers to offer demos of Sony’s PlayStation VR, bringing one of E3’s hottest products directly to VR fans.
The PlayStation VR demos will be available at 30 stores nationwide from 3-7 p.m. local time Friday, June 17, and from noon to 4 p.m. local time on Saturday, June 18. They’re first come, first served, so visit BestBuy.com/PSVR to find a store near you.
If you can’t make it to a demo that weekend, don’t worry. Starting Friday, June 24, Best Buy will offer demos every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in more than 200 stores nationwide. These in-store demos are expected to run through the launch of PlayStation VR in October. Check back in the next couple of days to this page to see which of your local stores is hosting a demo.
As for demo content, one experience you can expect to see is Into The Deep, from PlayStation VR Worlds – a collection of five different VR experiences built from the ground up for PlayStation VR. Descend below the surface of the ocean as a deep sea diver and view the fantastic marine life all around you – including sharks – through PlayStation VR’s 5.7-inch OLED 1080p screen.
PlayStation VR plugs and plays into a PlayStation 4 and the headset even fits over glasses.
In addition to the Playstation VR events, Best Buy is still offering Oculus Rift demos, and we sell Samsung Gear VR and other VR products.
