PSVR users have been waiting for an app that essentially lets them watch all of their favorite content with their other VR headset-owning buddies, or something akin to how Bigscreen Beta
works on headsets like Rift, Vive, and Go. Sony actually created its own social VR viewing app for PSVR users in Japan, but it's certainly no Bigscreen
According to CNET Japan,
Sony recently pushed a new update to their virtual theater app Theater Room VR
that finally lets users connect with up to three other people in a spacious digital cinema. There's no release date set for users outside of Japan, so there's no telling if it will ever make to other PS Stores at all. However you slice it though, there's a pretty big catch to Theater Room VR.
The big (very big) catch is that all users have to purchase the content they're watching together individually
. There also doesn't appear to be streaming video service integration like Netflix of HBO Go, effectively leaving users to coordinate with friends and browse the platform's video rentals.
