DEMO PLAYSTATION VR at Best Buy
Try out the new playstation VR being released Oct 13th.

I tried it, it was very cool.
7 minute demo being in a shark cage in the ocean as a shark attacked.
I moved my head and could look all directions.
8 different demos to choose from including games

Check to see if a Best Buy near you has the demo

They are also having PlayStation VR demos at a few GameStop locations this Saturday, and at least the next two Saturdays:

Personally, I think the official store locator on Sony's website is better, since it shows both GameStop and Best Buy locations, with a complete list of times for each store:

Darn it, I accidentally set this post to only go to people in Maine.
I'll change the settings to include Ohio also.

Was that shark demo at E3? I played the Batman experience, and the Resident Evil 7 one. The RE7 demo scared the living $#!+ out of me! I did get pretty dizzy at times though. This is a great way to check it out, and I may have to schedule a go!

FYI, the San Carlos, CA location will only have the VR demo on Sunday, as they apparently hosted a demo several weeks ago. I also heard the Colma, CA location will not have the demo on Sunday.

There are posts on reddit and Twitter of other stores not receiving their units and therefore are not participating in the VR demo at this time.

Good thing you mentioned this. I was to head over in an hour and called. They received nothing as well.
