I am working to have a great overall guide for VR, but my first step was to have individual breakdowns for the major products that are available right now. If you head to VRHeads | The #1 experience for all things virtual you'll see that at the top of the website, and I'll have a good buyers guide available later today to complement those lists.

Hope this helps for now!

From wikapedia Virtual Reality Wikapedia

Virtual reality or virtual realities (VR), also known as immersive multimedia or computer-simulated reality, is a computer technology that replicates an environment, real or imagined, and simulates a user's physical presence and environment to allow for user interaction. Virtual realities artificially create sensory experience, which can include sight, touch, hearing, and smell.[1]

so how is that different from playing a game on a pc or phone? You're in a computer simulated reality, you're in the game as a physical simulation, and there is user interaction. You see things and you hear and I've heard of games that give vibrations on certain actions

VR adds a headset and often a hand controller to enhance the experience. Sound is also enhanced in some cases with extra speakers and some folks have been experimenting with the introduction of smells to the VR experience.
