Cody unboxes the December 2016 Comic Bento Box
On October 13, Sony’s fanbase will launch themselves into the world of virtual reality with PlayStation VR. Destined to be a hot item for early adopters this holiday season, the PlayStation VR launch bundle retails for $699.99 CAD. This bundle includes the core headset, a pair of PlayStation Move controllers and the necessary PlayStation Camera to complete the package. If you already own a set of Move controllers and a PlayStation Camera, you can instead just buy the core PlayStation VR headset for $549.99 CAD.
Inside the headset box are a total of nine components: the headset itself with its inline remote, a set of stereo headphones, the headset connection cable, an HDMI cable, USB cable, AC power cord and adaptor, and the main processor unit where everything plugs into place. With all the extra hardware and wires, it’s understandable that your home entertainment center may become a bit more cluttered to say the least. Once everything is plugged into your PlayStation 4, the console will need to be connected to the Internet so it can be updated for the necessary VR software.
The PlayStation VR headset is a beautiful piece of hardware. Starting with the 5.7-inch 1080p OLED scope, the screen displays stereoscopic 3D images at 120 HZ and is built to deliver those images with a consistent level of sharpness and richness. Both the strap and scope unit on the headset can be adjusted to fit your head’s shape, which ensures that you are always fully immersed in whatever title you’re playing. The nine blue LED’s spread across the headset also serve a purpose as tracking lights. These help the PlayStation Camera adjust to your movements in 3D space.
Look forward to our upcoming review.
The Xbox One S is a powerful, splotchy, crimson red with the Crimson Omen logo on the air vent. Long scratch marks along the corner of the console are actually carved in, giving it a war-torn look and feel. The bottom of the console features a mysterious Phoenix Omen. When you turn on the console, the start-up music is the Gears of War overture. The console comes with a 2TB hard drive, 4k ULTRA HD video and blue-ray player and a higher contrast ratio for richer colours, making it one of the most powerful Xbox One Consoles on the market. Moving a way from the console itself, the Gears of War 2TB Xbox One S bundle comes with a matching crimson, weathered controller with scratched buttons and two times the wireless range.
But if the style and specs aren’t enough to entice fans, the bundle features early access to Gears of War 4: Ultimate Edition (with the Season Pass and loads of bonus content) for the Xbox One and Windows 10. Since the game is an Xbox Anywhere title, fans can access their game on both console and PC as game progress, Achievements and Gamerscore are saved on Xbox Live. For newcomers, the bundle also comes with full digital downloads of the entire franchise leaving them with hours upon hours of game play.
For die-hard fans of the Gears of War franchise, this limited edition bundle is a must have for getting into the Gears of War universe. Even strictly PlayStation fans will be convinced to finally buy an Xbox, just to appreciate the detail that’s gone into this console. The bundle is available for $449 on Oct 7, 2016.
