playstation_vrThe Sony PlayStation VR made its debut later than its competitors like the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. It also differed from its competitors in that it was designed specifically for the PS4 console, whereas the other two headsets are more for PCs. Now it seems that the headset has also managed to beat out the competitors in another way.

According to TIME’s Best Inventions of 2016 (via GameSpot), the publication has called Sony’s PlayStation VR one of the best inventions of the year, and how it is leading a virtual revolution. According to TIME, the PlayStation VR was awarded this honor due to its price tag, which is the cheapest of the lot, and also how it did not require gamers to build a powerful gaming PC in order to support it.

In fact for players who already own the PS4, all they need to do is buy the headset, whereas Oculus Rift and HTC Vive users might have to upgrade if they are lacking certain hardware. TIME writes, “Sony’s PlayStation VR, by contrast, is designed to work with a console that millions of people already own: the PlayStation 4.”

To be fair, the Oculus Rift has recently received an update in which it will be able to support lower-end PCs, but in the meantime it looks like Sony will still be taking home the honor, but what do you guys think? Does Sony deserve the spot, or did you think that the other VR headsets out there were more deserving?
