These PlayStation VR setup videos are oddly soothing even if you don't want one

PlayStation VR is easier to get up and running than much of its competition, but that doesn't mean it's a simple process. Thankfully you don't have to do it all by yourself. Sony has prepared a three-part tutorial series starring a series of boxes and a charismatic blue man that demonstrates how to properly install and configure your new sensory falsification device.

Even if you're not planning on buying a PSVR, the gently humorous narration and subdued, geometric visuals are kind of hypnotic...

PlayStation VR will be released on October 13. But cool as the headset may look on a polygonal head, you will want some actual games to play on it; check out our reviews for VR Worlds, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, and Batman: Arkham VR if you're thinking about entering Sony's brave new virtual world.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
