How to View 360 with Playstation VR? Panoramic images have come a long way thanks to the increasing availability of 360 cameras. Now you can see everything around you when viewing holiday photos, instead of just a strip of what you were experiencing. Once you have a photo you’ll want to check it out in all its glory, you’ll need to know how to open it using PlayStation VR.
First of all, you’ll want to ensure if your PlayStation 4 console is completely up to date. While consoles can now view 360 degree photos and videos in VR Mode, that hasn’t always been the case, and having an updated console will ensure that everything runs as smoothly as possible. Secondly, you are only able to view equirectangular images and videos with PlayStation VR. Most 360 images and video you’ll use are usually in this format.
