We gave it a try and it works really well, so we thought we would share it with you fine people! It isn’t too complicated to set up but you will need to set the software up and do some fiddling with the PlayStation cables. Nothing should break your PSVR or  [Read More…]

If there ever was an annoyance for playing multiplayer games on the PlayStation 4, it’s always having to invite each friend who wanted to play separately after the game starts. It isn’t that it was particularly difficult to do, but it was time consuming.
