15 Things You Need To Know About PlayStation VR

The PlayStation VR will have a cinematic mode that will let players play even standard PlayStation 4 games on their PlayStation VR headsets in a VR living room, projected onto a giant VR screen- sort of like how Xbox games can be played on an Oculus Rift, actually.

In a blog post (via UploadVR), Sony Japan detailed how this cinematic mode would work. They revealed that there would be three screen sizes, large, medium, and small, with the largest one simulating a 226 inch screen (making it larger than any screen that is currently on the market, and actually approaching cinema screens in size). The smallest screen size will have a viewing angle of 54 degrees, the medium will have 71.5 degrees, while the largest screen size will allow for a viewing angle of 90 degrees.

They also confirmed that this mode is usable and playable without any external TV screen needed- so theoretically, a PS4 becomes independent of any TV screen this way, and all its games can simply be played on a PlayStation VR.

PlayStation VR is due out on October 13 in North America.

    So it will be like looking at a TV through the headset, with black on the edges if you look outside the TV (or maybe in the future they will even put the TV in it’s own virtual room) and you can make the TV bigger or smaller? Very cool additional feature. This headset will need some additional uses to be a huge success and this is a clever feature. I’m not saying this would sell the headset by itself, but definitely an awesome feature to add to the package. Every now and then the no TV playability could be useful but not too often. I probably wouldn’t use this for fast paced games like FPS games, but maybe for horror games like old school RE, and definitely for movies if I’m watching alone. Would be really cool if the headset could simulate 3D movies and I could watch Star Wars 7 3D on a virtual movie theater sized screen!
