What is the best racing simulator for PSVR?
PSVR is a virtual reality headset that makes it feel like you are actually inside the real game.
These games can be played on a PC with Rift or Vive, but can also be played on a Playstation 4.
There are many racing simulators on the market that are compatible with the PSVR, but not all of them are great to race in virtual reality at the time of this writing.
The best racing simulator for PSVR would have to be Assetto Corsa, ACC and iRacing thanks to the compatibility with major VR headsets, support for a wide range of peripherals and the best graphics among all sim racing games.
Can you play sim racing games in VR?
Of course you can and it provides a sensational experience!
The best way to describe it is that you are in the actual drivers’ seat and looking around, making you feel like you’re driving the damn car!
You’re completely immersed in the game, giving it a much more authentic feeling.
There’s plenty of different sim racing softwares that are compatible with VR and we’re going to cover a few of them down below.
Does iRacing work with PlayStation VR?
As strange as it sounds since iRacing can only be run on PC, it is possible to play the game by using the PSVR headset.
It works fine with iVRy though I’d not recommend this headset for using it with iRacing for the different nature of PSVR from iRAcing PC-only cimpatibility.
How do I get to iRacing in VR?
You can indeed get iRacing in VR using most of the headsets available on the market.
Once you’ve got one for yourself, you can then sync the device to iRacing and you’re good to go.
Is F1 2021 PSVR compatible?
Of course it is and it seems like Codemaster is committed to making it work with different VR devices.
Ple Play station vr device allows you to truly immerse yourself in the F1 2021 experience, as you will be able to look around and see exactly what the driver would see from the cockpit of the F1 car.
Isn’t that freaking awesome? !
VR is an amazing technology that has yet to reach its maximum potential, and it’s amazing to see how far it’s come in the last few years.
Is Project Cars 2 PSVR compatible?
Actually you can use it only in Cinematic Mode, but not in true VR just yet.
In Large Mode, it’s like playing on a 120″” Screen but it won’t be exactly as the experience of the true virtual reality racing.
I know it’s a bit annoying for all the Project Cars sim racers out there but you can at least enjoy the game in a more immersive way.
Unfortunately you can play it in VR only using the HTC vive headset and the Oculus Rift therefore you can’t use PSVR with any project cars game.
Is the PSVR really worth it for Sim racing?
The PSVR is a pretty good headset for a virtual reality racing experience, especially when you consider the price point.
I personally think it’s okay though not the best one for sim racing.
In fact I feel like the HTC Vive and the Oclus Rift are the best ones for sim racing at the moment.
Though if you’re planning to play VR also for other games different from racing ones then PSVR is a really good option.
You can check its current price and customer reviews here on Amazon.

As always, happy racing!
