Sony is trying something new with a PSVR app called Theater Room VR that will allow fans to watch movies and anime in a virtual reality space. A beta test starts for PS Plus subscribers in Japan on December 13.

 

Theater Room VR is a PSVR app that puts you in a virtual reality space with a big screen theater used to enjoy video content such as movies, anime, and more. Sony aims to make it into a new service they offer and are going to host two beta test sessions for the app.
