It comes with a precision Serval controller and supports up to three more, packs in Bluetooth 4.1 and 802.11ac wireless connectivity, and thanks to Cortex: Stream technology, you can even play games from your PC right in your living room.

You also get exclusive movies, games, soft cushioning for comfort, and smooth head tracking to avoid the nausea issues other VR devices have been plagued by. You can even read texts or see incoming phone calls while in the virtual theatre, or hit do not disturb and immerse yourself fully in the virtual experience.
