Here you’ll dodge obstacles by moving in the real world with this VR game. Sprint Vector has you racing against your friends to see who can make it across the finish line first. You can get it on Amazon for about $23.99! So, what do you race for? During my own time playing this game I couldn’t stop the fun I was having with the experience of competing in a fun cartoon-like world.
Even when you lose or miss the target of your jump the fast recovery of the mechanics makes this super easy to get back to first place position. So roller blade yourself to the top, or laugh your way into last place! Winning or losing never felt so good!
It’s not enough to get your workouts by dodging punches in VR or getting the jump on your opponent. You just can’t wrap the experience up until you’ve fist fought a dapper Octopus wearing a monocle and top hat.
You can get this his silly boxing game for $29.99 and it will not only have you moving around to avoid the Knockout punch but also laughing at the situations you’ll find yourself in. So throw on your boxing gloves and get ready for an amazing time with the Knockout League!
For free on the PlayStation store you can download Rec Room, a series of mini-games for PSVR that are sure to get you breaking a sweat. Whether you choose to sword and board or shoot some laser tag you’re bound to have a pretty stellar time.

For $399 on Amazon VirZOOM will prove to be the best bike you’ve ever owned. Here you’ll pick a VR mini-game of your choosing so would you like to race cars or ride horses? The bike works just like a gym’s bike equipment except this time you can decide which reality you’d like to be apart of during your actual workout session!
If you’re anything like me you like to be focused on something else while you’re trying to work-out, which makes this so enticing. I always run more miles on the treadmill when I’m listening to my music or watching a TV, and now you can bike more miles by watching the scenery from your VR equipment!
Here you can take Wall Ball and table tennis to a whole new level. HoloBall places you in a virtual reality room where you are tasked with hitting your ball into targets and not allowing it to be knocked out of the safe zone.
This is definitely a game where you want to make sure you have plenty of open game space to prevent any damage to your room. For $14.99 you’ll get lost in this Tron like scenery and have loads of fun while doing it.
Here we’ll take on many different games at once. Sparc brings you options like room tennis, boxing, or even fencing you so can get moving with a PSVR headset on your face! What is room tennis you ask? Take the mechanics of table tennis and a slightly more narrow space of actual tennis and mesh them together.
The result is a confined room you and an opponent will find yourselves in to see who can get the most points. For $29.99 on Amazon you can get Sparc and challenge your friends to different sports to see who is the best!
