Second wave PlayStation VR launch kicks off in nearly 20 more countries around the World


On January 24th 2017, Sony launched the second wave of PlayStation VR. The PS4 compatible virtual reality headset has now become available in the following countries: Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, South Africa, Turkey, India, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, Bulgaria, Romania, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Israel, Cyprus, Malta and Iceland.The PSVR is compatible with more than 53 million PS4 console systems, and its game selection includes:, Batman: Arkham VR, Drive Club VR, the RIGS Mechanized Combat League, EVE: Valkyrie, the Battlezone, Eagle Flight, the Here They Lie or Star Wars Battlefront Rogue One : X-wing VR Mission.

The PlayStation VR package comes with a processing unit, the headset itself, and accessories including the necessary cables. To operate the device, you’ll need of course a PlayStation 4 or a PlayStation 4 console with a camera unit.

The first wave of PSVR launched on October 13, 2016.

However, as a recent article on gamesindustry.biz cleverly points out, Sony has a bad history with peripherals, and those interested in the future of PSVR should follow closely the company to see if there are any signs of it repeating its past behaviour patterns, namely the relative lack of support for PS Eye, the Move controllers, or PSP and the Vita.
