A few days ago, I huddled next to my PlayStation 4, and stared at the expensive piece of glass and plastic that’s sat next to the console, completely untouched, for more than a year. Upon closer inspection, I realized there were spiderwebs inside my PlayStation VR headset, and at some point, I’d borrowed the USB cable needed to power it on, and never returned it. There are three VR headsets in my house, but I can’t remember the last time I used any of them. Every time I’m tempted, the work needed to set everything up—the cables, the moving of furniture—is enough to push me towards a game that’ll boot up when I hit a single button.
