Do you like to try before you buy? In the case of PlayStation VR, you will be able to jump into the virtual reality experience for yourself at select retailers tomorrow and Saturday.
According to the PlayStation Blog, Sony will have demonstration kiosks at more than 30 GameStop and Best Buy locations throughout the United States. Starting on June 24, that number will expand to about 300, with more loctions being added in the United States and Canada. the blog has a complete list of initial locations, but they have set up a site so you can find the closest one to you just by entering your zip code. In addition, the PlayStation Road to Greatness tour will be in other cities with demos on those two days as well.
Right now, there will only be four demos available: EVE: Valkyrie, Headmaster, Battlezone and SUPERHYPERCUBE. More demos will be added down the line as the headset gets closer to launch on October 13.
No word on if those sites will be offering pre-orders as well, but it might not matter. Sony's Andrew House has already said that demand may exceed supply in the early days after launch, so be prepared to wait.
Oculus offered a similar in-store experience starting last month.
