At their E3 press conference a few days ago, Sony announced that PlayStation VR would be hitting store shelves on October 13th; however, virtual reality is an extremely new technology, so it’s understandable that fans will want a chance to try out the device before parting with $400-500 for it. Thankfully, Sony has announced that fans will have their chance to try out PlayStation VR starting this weekend at over 30 Best Buy and GameStop stores with games including PlayStation VR Worlds, EVE: Valkyrie, Headmaster, Battlezone and SUPERHYPERCUBE.

Demos will be held at select stores on Friday, June 17th and Saturday, June 18th, with times varying by store. Sony has also announced that, starting on June 24th, the number of participating stores will expand to over 300 locations in the US and Canada, with more games and stores being added as we approach October. To find out if a store near you will be participating this weekend or in the near future, you can head over to Sony’s website.

Our Verdict

Elijah Holt
Greetings Gamnesiacs! I'm Elijah Holt, a Associate Editor coming at you live from beautiful Alabama. My love for gaming started at an early age and has ingrained a love for two different gaming companies in my mind. On one side, my love of the Nintendo 64 and my countless hours spent perfecting the first few levels of Super Mario 64 (I was never good enough to get past those...maybe if they release it for the Wii U eShop someday...) resulted in my love for everything Nintendo; meanwhile, I also owned an original PlayStation, which has resulted in me currently owning a PS3 and PS4 for a few Sony exclusives and third-party titles. I'm a recent graduate of Auburn University, where I majored in Software Engineering. I currently work in DevOps as an Automation Engineer. I look forward to continuing to provide the finest content on the internet to loyal Gamnesia readers like you. Want to contact me? You can always shoot me an email at [email protected]
