Last week VRFocus reported on Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) announcing a UK tour for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR called The Future of Play Tour. Over the course of September and October SIE would be heading to certain cities around the country to showcase the head-mounted display, in celebration of its launch on 13th October. Now the tour has been expanded to include several GAME stores.
Six GAME stores have been selected to demo the PlayStation VR which retails for £349.99 GBP. Visitors to the stores will be able to play demos such as: Batman: Arkham VR, Farpoint, DRIVECLUB VR, Robinson: The Journey, RIGS: Mechanized Combat League, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, EVE: Valkyrie, Headmaster, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, PlayStation VR Worlds and Battlezone. All PlayStation VR participants must be 12 or over with those aged 12 – 15 requiring the presence of a parent or guardian to take part. Some titles are also age restricted.
Guy Lister, COO at GAME, said: “We know that UK gamers are desperate to get their hands on virtual reality and they will be able to do that with PS VR at GAME! 2016 is the year of VR and this is technology that has to be experienced to be believed. Our expert store teams can help advise on set-up and offer the best finance and trade in package to save you money. GAME is the only place for gamers to get into VR.”
