I bought this assuming it would have the new style headset since it was released two days after the skyrim bundle that contains it. This, however, was not the case. This bundle includes the older style headset that does not support hdr passthrough and has bulkier cables. Luckily I looked closely at the box before opening and noticed it did not show the headphone clips like on the new one. Had to return this to buy a bundle with the newer style headset.

AVOID THIS BUNDLE. This bundle is a terrible value on many fronts.
1 - Gran Turismo Sport only has a VERY limited VR mode. You will not be able to play all modes, or race against multiple vehicles at a time in VR.
2 - Most importantly, this bundle comes with the discontinued PSVR headset. The PSVR processor unit box that you hook up between the headset and the PS4 Pro will not allow you to pass HDR signals to your TV. You'll have to disconnect the processor unit and rewire the HDMI cables if you want to play games, or stream online in HDR.

The NEW model does have HDR pass-through. The Doom VFR and Skyrim PSVRs include the new HDR-capable unit.

The PS VR is pretty cool but still very gimmicky and lacks re-playable games.
The included GT racing game is absolute crap for VR. It is mainly a regular racing game that should be payed without the VR but has a "VR" mode. The menus within the VR mode are not tuned to the dual screens of the VR which causes the offset red/blue images you'd expect when watching a 3d movie without glasses and results in terrible eyestrain. The gameplay itself is horrible and depending on the car you choose you may end up staring out the side window the entire race even when starting out facing the correct direction. The game itself would be a one-star review if reviewed outside the VR bundle.
So far, the only game I've played for the PS VR that provided an OK VR experience was DOOM VR but they missed the mark on that one too by requiring the use of the move controllers instead of the regular PS 4 controllers. As a result the layer must point and click their way around the map, vary tedious and inaccurate. Missed it by that much :(
The only reason I did not rate lower is because this is relatively new tech and still has many bugs to work out, regardless of the platform.

I knew going in that this was the PSVR1 and not the PSVR2. At the moment, I do not have a 4K TV, much less HDR. Nor do I have the PS4 Pro. But wanting to see what VR was all about, this bundle fit the bill nicely as the PSVR2 wouldn't provide me anything extra at the moment. Simply put, the PSVR1 is the perfect choice for my current setup. I won't spend too much time on the actual design and manufacturing of the unit as it is pretty well known that Sony is generally considered A+ in this area. I will note that the headset fit very nicely, and I like the options provided for adjusting the fit. The unit does not feel bulky or uncomfortable while wearing it. As a bonus, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the camera fit nicely on my years old plasma TV. I had expected that I would have to find a way to position or mount the camera in some other fashion. Regarding the bundled Gran Turismo Sport: I have been a GT fan from the beginning, so it was a pretty sure bet that I would have picked this up at some point even if I didn't have VR. In the VR mode, you can race on any track in the game as long as you've already opened them up. The actual racing is limited to a 2 car race in VR, which is a little disappointing. Plus, you do not have the ability to even tweak the AI settings for your one opponent. In the beginning, you won't care, as just driving around in VR is enough to satisfy. But eventually, the need to have more opponents and tougher opponents will prevail. As it stands now, I've actually put in almost as much time with GT in regular mode as I have with VR mode, although it should be noted that it is necessary in order to level up and open up new tracks for VR mode. One can hope that perhaps a patch somewhere down the line may address these shortcomings. In reality, however, the bundled game really isn't going to make or break the decision on jumping into the VR realm. Now onto the VR itself, which is simply fun. If you go into it expecting the fine detail of the regular PS4 graphics, you will be disappointed. The display can appear a little fuzzy or grainy compared to the normal views the PS4 renders. But don't let that get in the way. Once you've immersed yourself into that VR world, you won't spend too much time thinking about the graphics as you're having too much fun with the experience. Many of the demos included with the set and on PSN have already become wish list candidates. And I've been eyeing other VR titles as well. I've even spent some time playing non VR games in cinematic mode. With GT, this was a good way to level up and open some new tracks for VR mode. I don't foresee VR totally occupying all of my PS time. After a while, I do find that I need to take a break and give my eyes and body a rest. But I do see many more VR titles in my future and more time spent in VR.

My 46 year old son requested this for his birthday and is over the moon ecstatic about it! My grandson used it and now he wants one. They rave on and on about the graphics and how they feel like they are in the scene. One person had a motion-sick type of reaction after wearing the virtual reality glasses so that could be a caution for some if you are sensitive to that. But overall, this was a BIG HIT!

This clearly is the future of gaming, or at least a very important aspect of it. I believe the adoption of this technology is getting ready to explode.

The vr headset is great. PS4 offers a lot of great games. This game though fun, it did really do it on the vr. There are other driving vr games that are much much better. But for the price to get headset and camera take the game in this bundle.

Bought this for my son as his major Christmas present back in November, of course he didn’t get it until Christmas, but it’s now June and it’s already not working, it has green dots that appear on the screen and then it goes black, very disappointing because this is all he really wanted for Christmas
