PS VR: Health and Safety

  • Q. Is there a recommended minimum age I have to be to use PS VR?
    Age 12 and up.
  • Q: How long can people safely wear PS VR?
    PS VR has been designed to be the most comfortable VR headset on the market, and it can be worn for extended periods of time. However, due to the intensity of some of the VR experiences, we recommend you take 15 minute breaks every hour when using PS VR.
  • Q: Is PS VR safe for my eyes?
    Yes. But as with all display devices (TVs, mobile phones, tablets, etc), we recommend taking 15 minute breaks every hour.
  • Q: The PS VR display is very close to my eyes, will I become nearsighted with prolonged use?
    No. Actually the focal distance of the images presented by PS VR is at a distance of eight feet. This is similar to the optimal viewing distance required to view a 60″ TV. Again, we recommend taking 15 minute breaks every hour when using PS VR, just like when viewing other display devices.
  • Q: Can I wear my glasses inside of the headset?
    Yes, the PS VR headset is designed to accommodate users that wear glasses. You can telescope the lens closer to, and farther away from, your face to get the optimal fit.

 

  • Q: I’m nearsighted, so can I use PS VR without my glasses?
    This depends on the prescription of your glasses. The focal distance of the images presented by PS VR is at a distance of about eight feet, so if you require glasses while driving or seeing your TV, you will most likely need to wear your glasses to see PS VR images clearly. However, some very wide or unusually shaped glasses may not fit.
  • Q: Can I walk around while wearing PS VR?
    Walking is not advised. We recommend that users play PS VR games while seated for the most comfortable and safest VR experience.
  • Q: My head is larger than average – will the PS VR headset fit?
    PS VR can adjust to comfortably accommodate a wide range of head sizes. That said, it’s a good idea to visit a local retailer to try it out for yourself!
  • Q: Will PlayStation VR make me feel nauseous while playing?
    Players’ responses to VR gameplay can differ, but generally, our user testing indicates that the vast majority of gamers have no trouble adjusting to PlayStation VR gameplay. Make sure to try the PS VR demo disc to get a sense of the games and experiences you prefer. In many cases, initial discomfort experienced can fade as you acclimate to VR gameplay. We recommend taking 15 minute breaks every hour when using PS VR, and if you experience any discomfort, discontinue playing.
  • Q: How much physical space will I need to play?
    The recommended play space measures approximately 9.8 feet by 6.2 feet total, with the user in VR sitting about five feet in front of the PlayStation Camera / TV. Make sure that no walls, furniture or objects can impede your VR play space.
