It’s crazy to think how far VR has come over the past few years. While the technology made its big consumer debut in 2016, with the launch of the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR, we also spent plenty of time anticipating its arrival. It promised to be the biggest technological shift since the rise of smartphones — and potentially since the dawn of the internet.
This year, VR headsets got cheaper, simpler (especially with Microsoft’s new Mixed Reality platform) and more worthwhile, thanks to the launch of new immersive titles like Rez Infinite. We’ve gone from having too few VR options to having too many. These are the best.
