How to win
To win this hot prize pack, we're asking you – all the PlayStation VR fans across New Zealand – to share your answers to the following question:
Which PlayStation franchise would make for a great PlayStation VR game, and why?
Write your answer in the comments section below.
Note that we want more than just a title – be creative and tell us what this game means to you and why it should get the virtual reality treatment. The game you choose should be one that has appeared on any of the PlayStation platforms in the past, but it doesn't have to be a PlayStation exclusive.
Tip: You can be as clever or silly as you like, and as brief or long-winded as you want (although shorter is better). Just make sure your entry stands out!
On Monday, 31st October, we'll share our favourite entries and announce the lucky winner. Easy!
About PlayStation VR
Experience new worlds
Don’t just play. Live the game -From the moment you slip on PlayStation VR, the new Virtual Reality system for PlayStation 4, you’ll experience games in an entirely new way. You’ll be at the centre of the action, living every detail of extraordinary new worlds – and you’ll feel like you’re actually inside the game.
Never standing still
PlayStation innovation – PlayStation has always delivered experiences beyond our imagination, from 3D gaming to augmented reality. That heritage takes a leap forward with PS VR. Now, you can step beyond the screen and climb into the game.
Play it, live it
Feel like you’re really there – You’ve played games that have made you lose track of time. But what about games that make you forget where you are? That’s what PS VR will do, immersing you in the game with an unparalleled sense of presence.
Got a PS4?
You’re ready for PS VR – Just plug in and play. PS VR is powered by PlayStation 4, so you can simply connect the two and step into new experiences in seconds. All you need to start this journey is the PlayStation VR headset, your PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation Camera. Then you're ready to go.
Best-in-class virtual reality
Pushing the boundaries of play – PS VR will let you play in ways and places you never thought possible thanks to an advanced, custom OLED screen that displays images at a super-smooth 120Hz, 360-degree vision and true 3D audio that lets you pinpoint sounds all around you. So you can lose yourself in games custom-built for PS VR, including RIGS Mechanized Combat League and VR Worlds.
◆ Advanced Display – The feeling of ‘being there’ starts with what you see. Combining landscape-scanning and an expansive 5.7” OLED 1080p display at 120 frames per second, you can experience detailed 3D environments of the highest quality to immerse yourself in the game.
◆ 360 Degrees of Audio – As you walk this unbeaten path, you’ll see and hear every world around you. A 360-degree sphere audio experience lets you completely immerse ourselves in your journey and put you right at its centre.
◆ Precise Tracking and Control – The LEDs around the PlayStation VR, on the DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller, or the PlayStation Move are tracked by the PlayStation Camera to pinpoint your precise location. This means your PS4 will always know where you are, even if you’ve forgotten.
Built for everybody
Designed to feel like it’s not there – The headset has been designed to be as light and as comfortable as possible. It’s effortless to slip on and off, while its minimal weight is supported by an adjustable headband that’ll fit everyone.
Immerse yourself, involve others – Let others enjoy a game with or against you with PlayStation VR Social Screen. Project what you see in your headset onto a TV screen so others can jump into the action. You can let others join in even as you lose yourself in your own world.
