Can the PSVR give you your own personal movie theater experience? Not quite, but it sounds like it’s a strong start. While the PlayStation headset will, virtually, give you a screen size much larger than any commercial television set, you’ll probably have to put up with the screen-door effect resulting from the lower-resolution displays.

In a detailed write-up, it’s revealed that that PS VR’s cinematic mode will offer three screen sizes; large, medium and small. Apparently the large mode is the equivalent 226 inches, making it much larger than any commercial television set and bringing it in line with a movie theater. Apparently the screen didn’t even fit in the player’s entire field of vision at first and they had to move so that it did. The medium setting is the default option, and immerses you in a dark virtual space. The screen will fit your field of view. The small screen might sound a little pointless at first, but it looks as if the screen follows the user’s gaze in this case, thus allowing them to lie down etc.
