PS VR envy: US demo disc launch puts Europe to shame with extra games


If you buy a PlayStation VR headset in Europe you'll get a demo disc containing eight games. That's pretty cool right?

But if you're in the US you'll get a massive twenty games, a whole twelve more than the EU.

The US is getting some pretty major exclusives including Resident Evil 7, Rez Infinite, and fan VR-favorite Job Simulator.

Unequal discs

It's a shame to see this demo disc be so unequal across different territories, and we're a little bemused as to why this has happened. We imagine like many of these things it has to do with Sony's contractual agreements across its different territories.

The demo disc can also be downloaded from the PlayStation Store should anyone lose their physical disc - but we're not sure yet if these demos will also appear in the European download stores. We'll update this post once we've heard word back from Sony on this matter.

Scroll down for the full list of demos. We've bolded the US exclusives to allow you to rage or gloat as you see fit.
