This is what death is like in PlayStation VR

Cut to black

Sony put up a video today showing what the upcoming PlayStation VR space combat game Eve: Valkyrie will look like in action.

It remains a fascinating, exciting form of VR play, but the way the trailer wraps up, with the sudden failure of its pilot and then death, reminds me that fading to black in virtual reality isn't exactly the same as seeing that happen on a flat screen on your computer monitor or television set.

PlayStation VR hits this October and you can check it out in action right now, if you're willing to visit a retailer and happen to live in the right place. You can find out more about PlayStation's on the road and in the retailer promotion right here.
