    No need to splash the cash: here's a no-fuss, free party game collection for all ages, and with some style. Even the weaker games will be short-lived hits. [Christmas 2016, p.97]

    The PlayRoom VR is a collection of five little games, and a free exhibition of the VR capabilities.

    The PlayRoom VR is the proof that VR can be a family thing, and not something dedicated for solo nerdy people. If the content seems light don't forget that the game is ready, and an excellent way to introduce VR to newcomers and family alike.

    The Playroom VR is a good collection of couch co-op mini-games that demonstrate the capabilities of the VR headset superbly. Although a few of the games you'll play once and never touch again, Robots Rescue is a standout experience that you'll wish was a fully-fledged game in itself.

The fact anyone watching can also join in and have fun using the second screen on the tv. It's worth the play even though they are small experience. Expand

    It gets point for being free, for variety, for multiplayer and replay value.

    This free to play multi game station is the best way to immerse yourself in the VR world. One of its biggest attributions is the multiplayer function. One player can have the Vr headset and the others the gamepads and you all feel connected.

    I would love to see some updates for the games or additional ones for this, because it's the best combination of fun and games.

It's a great VR game to show off and implements co-operative play and multiplayer play very well between the social screen and the VR headset. The VR visuals are awesome and cute. It's a great party game. Expand

    Great and fun for a group of people(2-3 people actually). Playroom VR contains 5 games and a playroom for collections.

    This free game really demonstrates a lot of ways on how to make funny games with the new Virtual Reality tech. And so far, this is the only PSVR game I see that uses the TV as a second screen for VR headset and
    becomes a local multiplayer game.

    Well, the downside is, these games got boring quickly and the "Rescue Robot" game is a little bit dizzy for the VR player. This shouldn't be a problem since it is just a free demo for the new tech.
