Best VR headsets 2018: HTC Vive, Oculus, PlayStation VR compared

We’ve seen a virtual reality explosion over the last few months, and now in there’s an amazing variety of VR headsets to choose from, starting at PC and moving all the way down to mobile VR.

But which is the best VR headset out there? Well, for our money it’s the Oculus Rift right now, as better games, Touch controllers and room-scale tracking have come together to make this the most polished high-end VR experience out there.

So what are the best VR headsets – and which one should you head out and buy? We’ve put together the definitive selection of the most gob-smackingly awesome devices just waiting to be strapped to your face.
