  Technology owns all our asses. That’s just the way it is these days. That’s the price we pay for our fancy-ass broadband, TiVo boxes, electric cars and all the other wonders of the modern age. Sure, we can watch YouTube videos of cats being ‘hilarious’ while taking a dump, and rewind live TV like the sorcerers of dark time-magic we are, but we become slaves to this stuff in the process.  

If your Internet cuts out for a moment, you experience a kind of sudden what-the-shit paralysed horror, like Wile E. Coyote does when he runs off a cliff. That split second where he continues running, stops, looks down and starts to fall? That’s how it feels to be without our precious techtastic. It’s scary stuff.

Coupled with that, you’ve got the kind of people who are desperate to be first in line for the latest device, or the next half-assedly different upgrade of one they already have. It’s a bit of a risky business, what with the launch models being so prone to ‘teething troubles’ and all, but some of us just can’t effing wait.

If you’re one of these guys, preparing to jump on PlayStation VR right as it lands on October 13, you’re going to want to take a look at this: the demo disk that will meet you. The device will come packaged with eight minigames or slices of main games, and PlayStation Blog has the details for you to feast your VR-hungry ogling eyes on:

Driveclub VR: Feel the speed of high-octane racing in an entirely new way – you’ve literally never seen Driveclub like this before.

PlayStation VR Worlds: In this demo you get to make a splash in the perilous waters of Ocean Descent, one of the five PS VR experiences available in the full game. Amazing sights, a lost secret and extreme danger all await…

Tumble VR: Explore a new dimension in puzzling with a fully 3D version of the classic block stacking game.

RIGS Mechanized Combat League: Master some of the most sophisticated and athletic fighting machinery ever created, in fast-paced arena combat – this is the future of sport.

Headmaster: Have a little kick around (erm… with your head) over at the wonderful Football Improvement Centre, which is most certainly not a prison of any kind whatsoever.

Wayward Sky: Soar among the beauty of the clouds in search for your father, in a crumbling airborne fortress.

Battlezone: Experience tomorrow’s battlefield today in the powerful Cobra tank, and demolish all that trundles in your path.

EVE: Valkyrie: Take to the stars and blast your way through swarms of enemy fighters in nerve-shredding space bound battles.


Puzzles? Racing? Soccer? Athletic fighting machinery? There’s something for everyone, right here. What do you think, Ego-friends? Is this something you’ll want to get in on?
