Sony Banks On GameStop PlayStation VR Demos

Is the PlayStation VR worth your money? It’ll be easier to decide in June, which is when you’ll be able to demo it at GameStop stores.

The one major difference between launching the PlayStation 4 a few years ago and PlayStation VR is that this new technology "needs to be lived to be believed," according to Koller. "Trial drives the conversion to purchase," Koller said. "You have to be able to go into a GameStop to try this. We’ll have a fantastic technology, but you need to get your hands on it." Tony Bartel, COO of GameStop, said GameStop will have a significant number of stores with dedicated PlayStation VR demo stations. In addition, Sony will be touring some trucks that will pull up and show the new VR headset to consumers.
