The PlayStation VR is well and truly in living rooms and Sony has done a nice job at getting indie devs on board alongside big names like Ubisoft and EA.
If you're still on the fence, you can read our full PlayStation VR review. As for the games, you'll find the best of the bunch below, and we'll be continually revising this as more appear.

Sony revealed it shifted an impressive 915,000 units in the first four months that the headset was on sale, and an accessible price of $399 should help the company continue to sell nicely in 2017, although note that Oculus recently brought down the price of the Rift (with Touch controllers) to $499, making it a bit more competitive. For PS VR there are also various bundles where you'll get the headset, PlayStation Camera and two Move controllers along with PlayStation VR Worlds and a Playroom VR digital download.
In the list below, we've put the games we've played up top, and below that are the upcoming games we're most excited for. Some are PS4 titles which now have a VR mode, some were built specifically for virtual reality. Let us know what you're playing in the comments sections.
At last, one of the best VR games hit the PS VR. Superhot's unique mechanic means time only moves when you do, turning you into a total bullet-dodging badass. While the limitations of the PS VR's camera make this version feel a little more constrained than the other versions, it's still just as much fun.
Movie production studio Skydance Interactive makes its virtual reality debut with this on-the-rails arcade shooter. Strapped inside a giant mech, each arm loaded with an arsenal of weapons at your disposal, you must help lead the United States Free Forces in their war against HUMNX. Move controllers are optional for controlling the mech's arms, but we'd recommend them.
This PSVR exclusive also happens to be the launch title for the new Aim Controller, which comes with vibration feedback and motion sensing. Think of Farpoint as a more modern version of classic arcade shooters like House of the Dead, except in VR and you're a space marine that's crash landed on a hostile alien planet. We've really enjoyed what we've played, but be warned that it's quite a short experience.
Keep Talking And Nobody Explodes
A firm fave from other VR platforms like Oculus/Gear VR, Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is a neat example of a group PlayStation VR game (from Steel Crate Games) for the living room. One of you wears the VR headset, the rest have a 'manual' to help you defuse a ticking bomb within VR by telling you what to do. Expect it to feel fast and furious, especially if you're the one in the headset. For two to four players.
Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin
The PS2 cult class Psychonauts is getting a sequel for PS4, but in the meantime developer Double Fine has produced a VR game to bridge the two together. But this is more than a side project; Psychonauts: In the Rhombus of Ruin has enough substance to go the distance (at least three hours, and that's if you're speeding through).
The first-person update on the point-and-click genre has all the charm you'd expect from a game written by Tim Schafer, while the movement mechanics do well to avert any nausea problems. Be sure to check out our chat with Double Fine about bringing Psychonauts into virtual reality.
RIGS Mechanized Combat League
RIGS sounds a little nutty at first. Through a combination of drivable combat robots, basketball and major league sports elements, you get a first-person multiplayer shooter that will likely be popular on Twitch. You're in a seated mech cockpit and you turn your head to aim, meaning it's well suited to the seated experience. There's deathmatch and football modes and 24 RIGS to choose from - you've just gotta get through that 30 minute tutorial (ugh) first.
Batman Arkham VR
Be the Batman in VR – what more sell do you need than that? The new Arkham game from Rocksteady Studios is already one of our favourite PS VR titles and sees you exploring iconic Gotham locations like the Batcave. The game focuses on Batman's skills as a detective, but don't worry, you'll still get plenty of opportunities to throw around some Battarangs.
The story is a comic book-style murder mystery, with a fairly slow pace and dark mood. But interacting with other characters, rewinding time at crime scenes, putting on the Batsuit and fighting high above Gotham are all pretty thrilling in these gorgeous, detailed VR environments. (Our tip: Best played with Move controllers and standing, though you can use DualShock if you prefer).
A PS4 remake of Sega's psychedelic rail-shooter Rez – a PlayStation 2 cult classic – now includes VR support, not to mention upgraded graphics. With gameplay that might not last you more than an hour, you may think the price is high, but you won't feel shortchanged. The combination of intense, abstract visuals and music here is hard to beat in terms of immersion. A must download.
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
Resident Evil is back, and it's better than the series has been in quite some time. Not only that, but the latest entry, Biohazard, lets you play entirely in VR for added scares. It's a great showcase of how PS VR can go the distance with a full-length game, a quality entry to the franchise, and damn terrifying to boot.
I Expect You To Die
This spy-themed escape-the-room puzzler is one of our favourite VR games yet, and the title doesn't lie: you are going to die a lot. Plonked into a series of tricky situations, you'll have to use your brains to come up with an exit strategy before it all goes to hell. Can you escape - or more pertinently, how many different ways can you die?
The London Heist (VR Worlds)
Set in London's gritty criminal underworld, this is one of the five experiences in VR Worlds. The London Heist allows you to use the PlayStation Move controllers in both hands for added realism, so you can duck for cover, hang out of windows, smoke a cigar and manually reload your gun with clips, all while feeling like a total badass. Putting on your own cockney accent while you 'top' bad geezers is totally optional. There's only about 20/30 minutes of gameplay, and it's a shame we won't get more, but it's still worth checking out.
As long as you know what you're getting here - a bright, simple, beginner friendly set of simulator games - you won't be disappointed. A great choice to show scared family members what VR is like in a world that plays fast and loose with the definition of "job". The Move controllers are your hands, and your workspace is your toybox. Hours of fun guaranteed.
Freaky yet mesmerising, Thumper is a "rhythm violence" game that is one of the most intense experiences you can have on the PlayStation VR.
You hit your DualShock controller to match a drum beat as you would in a more relaxing Guitar Hero-style scenario. Ominous graphics pulse all around as you control a bug hurtling down a track. There are also obstacles and combos of rhythms to take down big bosses. Pretty damn unique.
Ubisoft's experimental VR demo is now an official PlayStation VR title. Eagle Flight a third-person game/experience of, well, flying as an eagle over the streets of Paris. Only there are no people, and animals roam the city.
Multiplayer is fun with 3 v 3 'capture the prey' gameplay but the story missions and challenges start more serenely - collecting items, perfecting your tilting technique, gliding over rivers or swooping underground - before moving onto battles in the sky. There's also free roam if you just want to feel like you're flying for a while and admire the beaut CG view. Ubisoft has also made it cross-platform (as it will for its future VR lineup), meaning you can play with friends who have an Oculus Rift of HTC Vive.
Star Trek: Bridge Crew
How excited you are about Ubisoft and Red Storm's Star Trek VR game depends on how much you want to fiddle with Federation starship controls and well, how much you're into Star Trek. Down with both? Proceed. But even if Stark Trek isn't your think, Bridge Crew is arguably the best showcase right now of what multiplayer VR can be, as you and three other people must work together to command the S.S.Aegis through the wonders and dangers of space.
Away from the action is puzzle title Tumble VR. Play with DualShock or Move controllers (the latter are more helpful) as you stack objects of varying weights, mirror laser beams around a course and demolish groups of 3D shapes. You'll need a steady hand and some patience. Single and multiplayer, this is oddly relaxing. Cheap, too.
This multiplayer space shooter from CCP Games had a bit of a headstart as it's been in development for a few years. Also on Oculus Rift, EVE: Valkyrie is a fast-paced dogfight set in the EVE: Online universe. You can play against headset-wearing friends in short, fun sessions, swap ships and try out capture the flag modes. Plus, dying in this game is kind of magical. Just be warned - motion sickness might set in after a while.
Robinson: The Journey
In Crytek's new title you take on the role of a boy who has crash-landed on a breathtaking planet, which is the closest you'll come to experiencing Jurassic Park for now. The lack of motion controls is a shame, and visually it's not among the best titles, but The Journey is still a great game of substantial length, making it a rare beast right now.
Until Dawn: Rush of Blood
Here's one to bring the scares. Stick one of your friends into this first person survival shooter on the difficult level and watch them jump for some great "lols". We don't want to ruin too much but if you're scared of clowns, zombies or old timey theme parks, you might not want to play this too close to bedtime
Taking the 'original' VR first-person-tank-battle Atari game and 21st-centurying it is certainly a bold ambition, but the results are great. The motion is slower, because it's tanks, which reduces motion sickness, and the blocky graphics work well with PlayStation VR's tech limitations. You've also got a campaign and co-op mode for your money.
If you want a 'quick go' of something and you're into football/soccer, you'll probably quickly get addicted to Headmaster as three quarters of the UK Wareable team has already. It's a simple task of heading balls at (sometimes moving) targets, bombs, around 'goalies' etc that gets trickier and is one of the easiest to pass around to play.
It's a bit odd launching your head at a virtual ball at first but you'll soon get the hang of it. Most repeat plays at Wareable HQ so far.
Super Stardust Ultra VR
Now, here's a VR port you can get into - just remember Sony advises breaks every hour. Arcade shooter Super Stardust has nine classic 'god view' modes as well as a special Invasion Zone VR mode that puts you in a cockpit shooting down enemies and picking up power ups and weapons while avoiding space debris. The best bit? You'll happily replay it again and again to get that high score up.
100ft Robot Golf
We couldn't miss 100ft Robot Golf from No Goblinout. It does what it says on the tin, really. Four players can urban golf, as robots, at once because it's all just crazy and silly – plus if big old buildings or other robots are in your way, the idea is that you smash them down to take your shot. Not an essential buy but silly nonetheless.
Here's what we currently have to look forward to - many of the games below will be out by Christmas so you might want to save some money for this little lot.
Tiny Trax is proof that VR games don't have to take a first-person view. Think Micro Machines but you're stood inside the track, watching the cars race past your face, over your head, and even underwater, which requires submerging your head. After getting a taste at E3 2017, this is one of our most anticipated titles.
Another one we got to demo at E3 2017, Skyrim is getting the full VR treatment on PlayStation this November. The game utilizes a teleport mechanic to let you move around, and we found it worked surprisingly well in our short playtime. It'll include all of the previous Skyrim add-ons too when it does arrive.
You're a mouse, with a sword, exploring an enchanted wood. What's not to like? Teased at E3 2017, this is another third-person VR platformer game in the style of Lucky's Tale, and it looks filled with charm.
Developer Polyarc says the game is still a while off completion. From what we've seen so far Moss promises to further diversify the PS VR's lineup of games, and that can only be a good thing.
Supermassive Games has announced a prequel to its horror game Until Dawn, which will put us inside a mental institute 60 years prior. It all looks very eerie and the teaser has left us with a lot of questions - but consider us onboard. Expect this one to land in 2018.
This is a PlayStation exclusive from Highwire Games and it looks damn interesting. You play as a girl controlling golems, via your eyes and movements, while creeping through ancient ruins filled with treasures.
The devs say that the aim of the game is to make you feel the power of controlling these golems. It's an interesting mechanic and we can't wait to see where they take it.
Ace Combat 7
Namco Bandai's arcade flight Ace Combat series comes to the PS4 and VR with photorealistic graphics, authentic and futuristic aircraft to choose from and – no doubt – familiar dogfighting action.
As a journalist eager to make the headlines, you will embark on a journey with mysterious occurrences – all to find out who murdered Harris Bullard. This is the first horror title released by Robot Invader and you'll be looking to unravel the clues behind the mystery, using virtual reality to your advantage.
Gran Turismo Sport
Gran Turismo has been a Sony exclusive, as well as a huge hit, for years. With the use of virtual reality, the legendary racing game can be taken a step further, and will feature FIA Gran Turismo Championships to give you a chance to get your head in the race for your favourite car manufacturer or home country. It'll arrive fall 2017.
Pollen has been built with VR in mind and the visuals look stunning. It's a game in which you explore Titan – Saturn's largest moon. Obviously, being in deep space alone, a few things are bound to go wrong.
