That $200 bundle is interesting. It works with the playstation move controllers I already have from my ps3 days right?
Ignore that question, saw it got answered.
So someone tell me about "VR". Do you play the games standing up, or setting down?
Do you have to use the motion controllers or can you use the ps4 controller?
Are there any "demo stations" at the stores? I'm fairly sure I will get motion sick but I gotta check. Maybe find something to counter-act the motion sickness.
I prefer sitting down. The chainsaw Jack boss fight in RE7 is easier while standing and Superhot VR is much better while standing. However for 95% of my game time I sit comfortably on my couch. I did more standing early on with Here they lie and Rez Infinite, yet after getting used to it I find sitting down more comfortable.

You can use the DS4 for most games, some support both, only a few require move. I find Skyrim better with the Move controllers, having 2 hands works great in rpgs.
There is an adjustment period to VR, best not to jump straight into full movement if you think you might get motion sick. First make sure the camera is not too far away. The further away the more the headset might gntly sway back and forth, a limitation of the depth tracking from psvr. At 6ft distance it's rock solid, perfect for playing while sitting. 8ft is better for standing so you have a bit more room to move about.
To start, pick something without motion (Wayward sky / Tethered / Bound / Statik / Superhot VR) Then get used to something where you sit in a vehicle of some sort (Until Dawn rush of blood / Battlezone) Then start with slow movement (Robinson: The Journey / RE7 configurable movement speed). Use snap turning first before getting into smooth rotation. Always try to look in the direction you're moving in until you're comfortable (a lot of games move in the direction you look in so it's already done for you) Looking one way while you move in another in VR is quite challenging on your inner ear.
A lot of games also have teleportation and there are many more that don't require movement. Skyrim also has teleportation you can fall back on when you start feeling the first signs of motion sickness.
Oh and don't start with Windlands or Trackmania Turbo. Windlands got me feeling ill the first time (got used to it after another careful go) Trackmania Turbo has crazy jumps. In both cases I looked in a different direction than I was moving in which brought on the nausea. That's all long past now, however last night, while exploring the insides of a half sunken ship at a 30 degree angle in Skyrim I was feeling the early onset again. Leaning against a slope that's not there, another thing to get used to.
