technology that’s had a rocky start After four years of anticipation Facebook’s Oculus business finally shipped its high-fidelity Rift VR headset in March only to encounter massive delays in fulfilling orders And Oculus still hasn’t said when it will ship motion controllers to enable VR experiences that don’t require users to sit down Watch all our tech videos below HTC and Valve meanwhile jointly came out with a more immersive system (with controllers) in April but their Vive system requires users to free up an entire room and hang annoying sensors on walls The goal of Sony’s system isn’t so much to broaden the appeal of VR beyond gamers; after all it comes from the company’s PlayStation gaming business and requires a PlayStation 4 game console to work But Sony delivers where it matters most to hard-core gamers And PlayStation VR which comes out Oct 13 retains the social aspect of gaming in letting friends watch on a television set what the VR user sees in the headset CHEAPER AMONG THE PRICEY BUNCH While VR can be experienced through a cheap headset like the $15 Google Cardboard or Samsung’s $100 Gear VR those systems don’t deliver the same level of graphics and realism as the Rift Vive and now PlayStation For one thing they don’t have sophisticated position tracking to let you move around a room rather than just swivel around in a chair The PlayStation VR’s $400 package comes with the headset cables crappy headphones and a disc filled with demos Another $100 gets you a required camera for motion tracking and a pair of Move motion controllers A PlayStation 4 is necessary and starts at $300 so if you’re starting from scratch you’re spending at least $800 By contrast the other systems require high-end PCs that already cost more than $1000 The general-purpose laptop you may already own won’t be fast enough The Rift itself is another $600 without its Oculus Touch controllers and the Vive costs $800 with controllers There’s nothing as compelling as a “BioShock” or “Dragon Age” game that’s available for traditional game systems (Source: AP) Of course none of this includes games They’re extra CONTENT IS KING Sony boasts that about 50 titles will be available by the end of the year I have tried more than a dozen and have been impressed with the lineup’s depth and diversity There’s nothing as compelling as a “BioShock” or “Dragon Age” game that’s available for traditional game systems But a few exclusive titles offer more than just a glimpse at PlayStation VR’s possibilities “RIGS” is a VR rendition of the multiplayer soccer sensation “Rocket League” The crime caper “The Heist” felt like I was inside a Guy Ritchie movie that I didn’t want to end “Until Dawn: Rush of Blood” is the best haunted house I’ve visited in years – better yet no long lines There’s plenty to keep gamers occupied for months and more are on the way NOT TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT Both the Rift and the Vive are worn like goggles with the straps coming around the sides near the ears The PlayStation’s visor hangs down from a halo-like ring worn around the top of the head The different seems minor at first but the result is more evenly distributed weight and less pressure around the eyes It could also make the headset feel more comfortable with glasses though a colleague still had to deal with lenses fogging up The design also makes it easier to glance at a phone or find a drink Just push a button to slide the visor out without needing to go through the rigmarole of detaching the entire headpiece Still the nausea-inducing issues with the other VR systems are present here too I don’t consider myself prone to motion sickness but I can’t handle more than 30 minutes or so in VR at a time VISION QUEST The Rift and the Vive have better screen resolution while Sony’s system boosts more frames per second for smoother video But don’t get bogged down on specs The differences are negligible And the PlayStation VR preserves the social aspect of gaming What you see inside the headset is replicated on a TV screen so others in the same room can follow along The Rift and the Vive can simulcast on a computer monitor _ not quite the same as a big-screen TV The TV also can be used for multiplayer experiences with the VR user battling players looking at the screen Sony throws in “The Playroom VR” with a couple of fun examples of asymmetrical gameplay Nothing like that is available yet for Rift or Vive REMOTE CONTROLS You can dodge obstacles in a street luge game by moving your head or use an on-screen rendition of standard DualShock 4 controllers in the spatial puzzler “Super Hybercube” The best games though use the wand-like Move motion controllers with light-emitting bulbs positioned above a trigger and other buttons These controllers aren’t as sleek as Vive or Rift remotes but they get the job done of mimicking hands in virtual space The Vive offers the most immersive experience given that it uses two sensors mounted on opposite corners of a room But I was pleasantly surprised by the accuracy of the PlayStation camera I was able to fluidly execute a 180-degree spin as the Dark Knight in “Batman: Arkham VR” The Sony system is also way easier to install You just plug it into the PS4 A NEW REALITY Despite all its strides PlayStation VR won’t be for everyone Besides gawking at the whimsical animated VR movie “Allumette” or streaming Netflix on a virtual screen that looks way bigger than your actual TV there’s little available for non-gaming fans That’s a limitation with the Rift and the Vive too Even most average gamers won’t need the PlayStation VR The available experiences aren’t on par with what gamers have come to expect from countless hours of “Grand Theft Auto” or “Call of Duty” But for anyone who’s been excited about the lofty promises of VR Sony has delivered a worthy wired experience that’s comfortable for both your noggin and your wallet For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App More Top NewsJammu: National Conference president Farooq Abdullah on Saturday asked the Centre to set up a commission to look into

but one that followed a bitlater While the two teams exchangedwarm handshakes almost in appreciation for bringing the best out ofeach other in an absolutely thrilling contest Jasprit Bumrah was being sworn in as perhaps the best death bowlers in limited-overs cricket Bumrah whose heroics comprisingof relentless delivery of yorkers in an extremely high pressure situation had won Mumbai the game received a warm embrace from Lasith Malinga who patted the young bowler’s back in appreciation Jasprit Bumrah of MI celebrates with teammates after winning in the Super Over Sportzpics Malinga who over the years has crippled batsmen around the world with his immaculate death bowling seemed to have found his rightful heir The smile on his face resembled that of every Mumbai Indians fan after they had watched Bumrah win their side the game Well to be very honest Bumrah and the way he bowled that Super Over gave the Sri Lankanthe joyful experience of what’s it like for fans to watch Malingaplay A fiery run-up followed by a slow looping yorker right on the stumps that would deceive even the best of the batsmen on the back ofa good length off-cutting delivery slightly wide of the wicket crying out for some pace before a dead-straight delivery aimed at the batsmenwith breathtaking pace that’s been Malinga’s bread and butter over the course of his career and nobody has been able to do so with such devastating effect until of courseBumrah on Saturday night When the game went into the Super Over most of the spectators and viewers would have been expecting Malinga to bowl at the Gujarat Lions batsmen but the Mumbai think-tank opted to go with Bumrah fully aware of his blossoming skills It wasn’t just in the Super Over that Bumrah was entrusted responsibility he also bowled the last few overs during the Gujarat innings Over the years Mumbai have been using Malinga sparingly at the start to preserve him for the death overs but on Saturday captain Rohit Sharma used the Sri Lankan at the start and in the middle of the innings while banking on Bumrah to do the job at the death The 15th over was the last of his quota of four overs while the Indian pacer bowled the 17th and 19th overs usually reserved for Malinga Bumrah finished with figures of 2/32 in his four overs tad better than Malinga’s figures in the match Earlier in the campaign Mumbai had dropped Malinga from the side a move that was unthinkable a few seasons ago But thanks to Bumrah it’s been made fathomable After this win against Gujarat Bumrah might be Mumbai’s chief bowler for the death overs giving Rohit the option of using Malinga a bit more aggressively upfront as he did on Saturday If Bumrah provided the finishing act it was the efforts of Krunal Pandya that ensured a late collapse didn’t culminate into a disaster for Mumbai Propelled by a wonderful knock from Parthiv Patel Mumbai seemed to be coasting towards a win until Gujarat were able to expose the fragile middle order of the Mumbai Indians Rohit and Kieron Pollard who haven’t been among the runs consistently this season had an outing forget To an extent it was their inability to hold their own after Mumbai lost the in-form Nitish Rana that sucked the momentum out of the Mumbai innings and once again put the lower-middle order under pressure Like always Mumbai managed to produce a hero out of these batsmen and once again it came in the shape of Krunal Be it his 28 off 20 balls against Gujarat on Saturday or his two knocks of 37 each against Bangalore and Hyderabad Krunal has been an excellent finisher for Mumbai sometimes substituted by his brother Hardik Pandya in that role Even in the bowling department Krunal produced excellent figures of 3/14 in his four overs finishing off a job that Harbhajan Singh had so efficiently initiated After the veteran off-spinner had put the brakes on Gujarat early on Krunal broke the back of the Gujarat batting line-up by picking up three crucial wickets His spell made sure the possibility of a big score went out of the window for Gujarat Finishing off his team’s good work both with bat and ball Krunal is a vital cog in the Mumbai set-up He is now performing the role which Pollard performed with great effect in the past few years at Mumbai Indians as the West Indian battles for form and consistency The tall all-rounder accelerated the team’s scoring rate in the end overs while slowing down the opposition with the ball and with the subtle variations he has under his belt Krunal has been filling that void left due to the West Indians’ patchy form in the IPL this season Now Mumbai need not rely heavily on Pollard to up the scoring rate or pull off an impossible chase as young Krunal is certain to have a say in that Mumbai lower-middle order On Saturday the game was decided by the more number of match-winners both experienced and young in the Mumbai side After a explosive start from Gujarat Mumbai pulled back things completely as their pacers especially Malinga took pace off the ball It prompted Rohit to give a bulk of overs to the spinners and the plan worked very well Apart from the vital points on the board this was a game that cemented Bumrah and Krunal’s status as MI’s newgo-to men After several years of success built on that Malinga-Pollard combination Mumbai have grown new teeth that can continue to

proposals relied on ideas submitted by Fifa audit panel chairman Domenico Scala and shaped by a reform group chaired by former IOC director Francois Carrard They include imposing term limits of 12
