Which VR Headset do I rent?? Advice needed!!

  sam_S1 14:10 01 Feb 2017

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 -

Any and all help would be amazing! Would appreciate any advice whether it be technical/hardware stuff or just a recommendation!

Use your PS4 for VR, unless you want to spend a lot of money on a more powerful graphics card, a GTX 1050 is not really powerful enough.

Ah damn. Shame about the graphics card, I bet there's so much more free VR content on PC. PS4vr it is, might scare myself with resident evil... wish me luck.
