Our Winner? The Oculus Quest

The Oculus Quest is the winner for us and one of the main reasons is the quality of the display. The Oculus Quest’s higher resolution provides a sharper, clearer and more immersive VR gaming experience over the PSVR. Another advantage over the PSVR is that the Oculus Quest doesn’t require anything else to run, while the PSVR requires a PS4.

That being said, for a VR headset that has been around for almost four years, the PlayStation VR is surprisingly good, and if you already have a PS4 or a PS4 Pro, the PlayStation VR is one of the best entry level options for VR gaming.

But when it comes down to the simple question “Oculus Quest or PSVR – which one is better?” – our answer is the Oculus Quest.
