PlayStation VR brings back the demo disc, puts eight games on it

Will be included with every unit

If you thought demo discs were a turn-of-the-century relic, they're still with us, and Sony is including one with all of its PlayStation VR units at launch.

The disc will feature samples of eight virtual reality titles for owners of the new hardware to try out. The games are: DriveClub VR, PlayStation VR Worlds, Rigs: Mechanized Combat League, Tumble VR, Battlezone, Eve: Valkyrie (pictured above) Wayward Sky and Headmaster. We went hands-on with Battlezone, DriveClub VR, Rigs and Wayward Sky at a preview event in April.

PlayStation VR is expected to be a big topic at tomorrow's PlayStation Meeting in New York. The unit launches Oct. 13.

No word on whether these demos will also be available over PlayStation Network, but as they all require the PlayStation VR headset, it probably made more sense to include them with the unit, to encourage people to buy full editions of a game type they may never have tried before.
