    Hey Guys,

    I'm a student at the moment so unsurprisingly funds are tight but I'm a massive gamer and I really want to try out a VR headset. I've done some research and I've found a site that will let me hire a VR headset for a few days which seems pretty ideal to me.

    As this is going to be a one off for me I want to make sure i get one which A) i can use, B) has a decent games library. My options are: PS4 Vr, HTC Vive and the Oculus rift DK2.

    I should point out i own a ps4 and a PC with a gtx 1050. Would i be able to run the PC headsets or is it simpler to go with Ps4? (i should also note the ps4 one is most expensive to hire).

    I found them here - https://fatlama.com/browse-items

    Any and all help would be amazing!

    thanks

    Oculus rift will be a good option for you. It has good reviews till now.

    Oculus Rift is definitely a good option. The HTC Vive is also very popular amongst our customer.

    With regards to the PS4 VR - what is the best game to test it with. One of them comes with Driveclub, racing could be very interesting - or another has resident evil. Zombies seems right up my street. Does it really make a difference, what games performed best with VR?

    Thanks :)

    Racing is amazing in VR if you have a steering wheel. I don't think it would be as good without one. One of my favourite PS VR games is Headmaster, it's nice and easy to play.
