PlayStation VR Will Include A Demo Disc With 8 Games On It

Valkyrie team just sent out a tweet to let fans know that a demo version of the game will come bundled with the PlayStation VR. The demo will feature Ocean Descent, a risky journey into the depths of the deep blue sea that puts you face to face with a shark.

As such the demo disc seems like a sensible move from Sony, who will be keen to entice other developers to make games for its platform by ensuring that its launch games sell strongly. The PlayStation VR will certainly be one of the major products that the company will further talk about considering that its October 13 shipping date is just a few weeks away. With the included demos players are able to experience virtual reality as soon as they pick up the virtual reality headset.

Sony is gearing up for some big hardware releases. "Wonderful sights, a lost secret and extreme danger all await", reads the PlayStation blog.

Many of us are excited to get our hands on PlayStation VR next month, but there are still a few concerns.

Battlezone - Experience tomorrow's battlefield today in the powerful Cobra tank, and demolish all that trundles in your path.

One of the highlights of the PS VR demo disc is the addition of a taste of EVE: Valkyrie, a futuristic space fighting simulator.

Wayward Sky - Soar among the beauty of the clouds in search for your father, in a crumbling airborne fortress.

Launching on October 13, PlayStation VR ships with a headset, processor unit, stereo earbuds, HDMI cable, USB cable, AC adaptor and headset connection adaptor.

A demo disc is a nostalgic throwback to the '90s and early '00s when internet speeds weren't sufficient enough and trying a game before buying it was standard practice. It seems that demo disks aren't completely a thing of the past as Sony will be packing one into its upcoming PlayStation VR peripheral.
