If you haven’t been able to try out the PlayStation VR yet, then it looks like you may be in luck. Today, Sony Interactive Entertainment announced over on the PlayStation Blog that players will be able to experience the virtual reality unit in retail stores soon.

Starting today, players will be able to go to a nearby Best Buy or GameStop and try out VR demos for Gran Turismo Sport, Final Fantasy XV: Monster of the Deep, SUPERHOT VR, Dino Frontier, Raw Data, and Voltron. If none of those interest you, then there is no need to worry, as different games will be coming to each store later this year. While an exact end date has not been announced, SIE says that the retail demos will continue until the holiday season.

Only 200 stores will be participating in these demos, so you can click here to see the closest store near you. As of the time of this writing, it’s unknown whether or not more stores will be added as the event progresses.

This, of course, isn’t the first time that PSVR demos are hitting stores. Before the unit was released last year, SIE held a similar event at various stores. That one included demos for EVE: Valkyrie and The Deep, among other titles.

The PSVR unit that will most likely be featured in the demos will be the recently announced CUH-ZVR2 model, which includes redesigned cables, processor unit, and other minor upgrades.
