  It's impossible to look cool while playing with the PlayStation VR.  Darren Weaver/Business Insider          If you askFacebookandGoogle, the "next big thing" is virtual reality — the technology that lets you put on a headset and get transported into a amazingly lifelike digital world.  
   The best reason to get into virtual reality at this point is to play incredible, immersive video games. But, up to this point in the short history of VR, the most premium games have been limited to people with a lot of extra cash to burn.
    Facebook's high-end Oculus Rift headset is $600 plus another $200 for its nifty motion-tracking controllers ; the HTC Vive Pre is $799. In both cases, you should be prepared to drop $1,000 or more on a Windows PC powerful enough for virtual reality. (Google and Samsung have cheaper headsets, but those cell phone-based set-ups can't match the horsepower of full-fledged systems).
    Enter theSony PlayStation VR. Launching on October 13th for $399, the PlayStation VR brings a virtual reality experience competitive with (but not quite as powerful as) what Facebook and HTC have to offer. And not only is it cheaper, it plugs right into every one of the 40 million Sony PlayStation 4 consoles that have already been sold.
   I've been playing with the Sony PlayStation VR for the last few days. And I have to say, while it's still the very beginning of the would-be virtual reality revolution, Sony has come up with something incredibly promising, especially considering how easy and relatively inexpensive it is to get started.
   And with big-ticket games like "Batman: Arkham VR," cult hits in the making like "Until Dawn: Rush of Blood," and fun multiplayer action games like "RIGS: Mechanized Combat League" coming exclusively to PlayStation VR, it's going to have a major league up in the war for your wallet.
   Here's what it's like to use the PlayStation VR.

       Let's get the elephant out of the room out the way, first: The PlayStation VR may only cost $399, but it doesn't come with everything you need to get started.

           Darren Weaver/Business Insider         (The other elephant in the room: It's impossible to look cool wearing these. You get over it or you don't.)
       In addition to the headset itself, you'll need the PlayStation Camera, a $50 or so accessory that sits on top of the TV. It handles head- and motion-tracking. You literally can't use the PlayStation VR without one.

           Darren Weaver/Business Insider             You'll probably also want a pair of PlayStation Move $50 motion controllers, one for each hand. While many games support the PlayStation 4's regular, everyday controller, some games — like the must-play "Batman: Arkham VR" — require these controllers to simulate your hands in the virtual world. More on that later.

           Darren Weaver/Business Insider             So unless you already happen to have the right mix of PlayStation 4 accessories, you'll probably be dropping around $500 — still cheaper than similar VR products, especially if you already own a PlayStation 4.

           Matt Weinberger/Business Insider         Indeed, that's the biggest selling point for the PlayStation VR. It just plugs right into any PlayStation 4 console, past or present. It's true that Sony has a new, more powerful PlayStation 4 Pro console coming out later this year. But you don't need it for PlayStation VR.
       Setting up the PlayStation VR takes about 15 minutes. The headset is wired to a little box that hooks up to the PlayStation 4. That box needs an HDMI connection to both the TV and the PlayStation 4, plus power and a USB port.

           Darren Weaver/Business Insider             It's easy to set up...but it also makes an unsightly mess of cables. If, like me, the back of your TV is already a mess, PlayStation VR will only make it worse.

           Darren Weaver/Business Insider             The headset itself is surprisingly comfortable, given its funky design. It's light, well-padded, and doesn't get too warm.

           Matt Weinberger/Business Insider             Mercifully, it goes right on over my glasses with no problem whatsoever. I can wear it for about an hour at a time before it gets to be too much.

           Matt Weinberger/Business Insider             With a name like "PlayStation VR," you'd think it would be all about the games. And you'd be right. Sony is promising there will be 29 PlayStation VR games available at the official October 13th launch.

           Sony         "Scavengers Odyssey," pictured here, is one of the games on the "PlayStation VR Worlds" disc. That disc is a set of fun little minigames, made by Sony's London studio, that highlight fun and interesting ways to move through VR. It's a great way to show off the technology.
   Plus, the PlayStation VR comes with a demo disc, packed full of trial versions of games. You can get started pretty much right away.
       Lots of games can be played with the standard PlayStation 4 controller. But some, like "Batman: Arkham VR," need those PlayStation Move controllers.

           Sony/Warner Bros.         Here, each of your controllers become one of Batman's hands: The pictured scene requires you to literally reach out and grab the Batsuit and press it to your chest to put it on. Other uses include taking Batarangs off your utility belt and throwing them, or running a hand-held scanner over a cadaver to find clues to crime scenes.
   Of all the games I've gotten the chance to try so far, "Batman: Arkham VR," which will sell for $20, is a real standout.
   It only lasts about two hours, but it really gets you inside the Dark Knight's head in some interesting ways that I don't want to spoil. It's also super graphically impressive: I found myself reaching out in real life for things that weren't there.
       The problem with just looking at virtual reality games is that they don't really get across what it feels like to put the headset on and be immersed in that world.

           Sony         For instance, "Until Dawn: Rush of Blood," a horror shooting game that puts you on a literal roller-coaster ride through a world filled with zombies and scary clowns, made me VERY UPSET. Intellectually, you might know it's just a game, but try telling your reflexes that.
   This game makes full use of everything the PlayStation VR has to offer: You have to duck and weave your head around errand buzzsaws, even as your wield one pistol in each hand to take down monsters. It's scary (I'm a wuss) but it makes you feel like a real gunslinger when you mow down the hordes of Hell.
       One very nifty thing about the PlayStation VR is that it displays what you see in the headset on the TV. Sony calls this the "Social Screen," since it means the people in your living room with you can see what you're doing. Some games even support multiplayer, with one person in VR and the rest with regular controllers using the TV.
                  Darren Weaver/Business Insider         Another little bonus: You can play any PlayStation 4 game or watch any movie in the PlayStation VR, too. It simulates watching it on a giant screen, hovering in front of you in an empty void. It's cool, if you can weather wearing the headset for the duration of a movie or game.
       I can't tell you how PlayStation VR stacks up against the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive Pre, its two biggest competitors, since I haven't used them as much.

           Business Insider / Oculus VR / Tech Insider          That said, this chart from IGN shows pretty clearly that the PlayStation VR is just a little underpowered compared to those other two , especially in terms of screen resolution.
   Just remember to factor in that the Oculus Rift and the Vive Pre both require expensive gaming PCs that can run $1,000 or more. The PlayStation VR just needs a PlayStation 4. Any PlayStation 4. It bears repeating.
       What I will say is that like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, you should probably be careful with the Sony PlayStation VR if you're prone to motion sickness. I never got that too bad (though I did get it), but some of my colleagues really struggled with it.

           AP/Shutterstock/Tech Insider             But I was very impressed with the Sony PlayStation VR. For something that works so well with my existing PlayStation 4, its performance really delivers.

           Matt Weinberger/Business Insider             And, hey, if you don't already own a PlayStation 4, savvy shoppers can pick one up on the cheap. Sony is currently selling a $300 bundle that includes the PS4 console and the blockbuster "Uncharted 4." All told, you'll only be spending a little more than you would just for an HTC Vive, and you won't need to spring for an expensive PC, too.
                  AP Photo / Nam Y. Huh             And thanks to Sony's existing relationships with game developers, the future is looking bright. Games like "RIGS: Mechanized Combat League," a sports action game involving robots and shooting, look great.

           Sony             It remains to be seen if consumers will really, truly, embrace virtual reality. And while the first wave of PlayStation VR games show great promise, we'll have to see if Sony can keep up the pace with new releases that let players feel like their $399-plus purchase was justified.
