Samsung Gear VR vs Playstation VR

Samsung Gear VR vs Playstation VR

This is a comparison of Samsung Gear VR vs Playstation VR.  We show you the Pros and Cons of each Virtual Reality headset and expose the strengths and weaknesses of the operating systems that power them.

Samsung Gear VR vs Playstation VR

  • Samsung Gear costs $80+, Playstation VR costs $400+
  • Gear VR is for casual gamers who don’t want to break the bank
  • Playstation VR is for serious gamers who want a fully immersed, intense gaming experience

Samsung Gear VR Pros

  • Costs under $100
  • If you already have a Gear VR-capable Android phone, this is an easy, inexpensive way to get your first taste on Virtual Reality at home

Samsung Gear VR Cons

  • You need an Android Samsung Galaxy S6 or S7 to use the Samsung Gear VR
  • The game selection will always be weak compared to the major VR headsets like Playstation VR, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive
  • Gameplay is limited to whatever the phone is limited to

Android Operating System for Samsung Gear VR

  • Samsung Gear VR is powered by Android OS, so Android users will already be comfortable navigating through the Samsung Gear VR experience.
  • Android OS updates automatically when your phone has a data connection or WiFi

Playstation VR Pros

  • The game selection will be MUCH better than Samsung Gear VR’s, because Sony already has major contracts with the world’s best game designers.  PS VR already boasts games like Resident Evil 7 and Call of Duty Infinite Warfare.
  • PS VR uses the Playstation 4’s more-than-capable hardware to power your gaming experience

Playstation VR Cons

  • This awesome unit costs a pretty $399 just for the headset.  The camera will run you around $70.  If you don’t have a PS4 already, that’ll cost you $300 USD.  Those are the three things you’ll need.  You can optionally get the bundle, but most games don’t require the use of the Motion Controllers that the bundle gives you.
  • Players are limited to sitting in a small area for games to fully recognize the player’s location in the room.  This will become better over time as Sony improves on their PS VR headset, but is still an annoyance for now.

Playstation Operating System

  • PS VR is powered by the Playstation operating system, which has been powering their consoles for many years.  The latest versions of the Playstation OS are extremely “comfortable”-feeling, are fluid in their movement, they have “pleasant” sounds when you move around the menu, and is just smooth in general to use.
  • Playstation operating system receives regular updates when your PS4 is connected to the Internet via WiFi or Ethernet

Online privacy quiz (5 points, from KFireTV Admin)

Q: True or False - Your IP Address is:

A: Not sure? Find out here. If you didn't know the answer, then your online identity is at risk - and you should immediately protect yourself with a Secure VPN. This will also unblock Kodi add-ons and International TV channels, enable anonymous surfing, automate data encryption, and prevent third-party data snooping.

P.S. Take 60% off (for my beloved KFireTV visitors only).
