We happened to check out the Sony Philippines store located at the SM Megamall Cyberzone which is located in their entrance and the PlayStation VR is now available for testing for public use. Unfortunately we haven't tried it yet for experience as there is a long line in the store as PlayStation VR fans & passersby were all wanting to try the new PlayStation VR. Looks like that this VR will become popular and more accessible in the country soon.

PlayStation VR is Sony's answer to the virtual reality rival devices such as Facebook's Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. The PS VR will require a PlayStation 4 console (unlike competitors which use PC), Move controller, and Playstation Eye camera to be able to play any games. It is also compatible in PS4's DualShock controller. The device features a 5.7-inch OLED 1920 x 1080 pixel display at 120fps refresh rate, Six-axis motion sensing system (three-axis gyroscope, three-axis accelerometer).
