Experience new worlds. Don’t just play. Live the game.
From the moment you slip on PlayStation VR, the new Virtual Reality system for PlayStation 4, you’ll experience games in an entirely new way. You’ll be at the centre of the action, living every detail of extraordinary new worlds – and you’ll feel like you’re actually inside the game.

Never standing still. PlayStation innovation.
PlayStation has always delivered experiences beyond our imagination, from 3D gaming to augmented reality. That heritage takes a leap forward with PS VR. Now, you can step beyond the screen and climb into the game.

Play it, live it. Feel like you’re really there.
You’ve played games that have made you lose track of time. But what about games that make you forget where you are? That’s what PS VR will do, immersing you in the game with an unparalleled sense of presence.

Got a PS4? You’re ready for PS VR.
Just plug in and play. PS VR is powered by PlayStation 4, so you can simply connect the two and step into new experiences in seconds. All you need to start this journey is the PlayStation®VR headset, your PlayStation®4 and the PlayStation®Camera. Then you're ready to go.

Best-in-class virtual reality. Pushing the boundaries of play.
PS VR will let you play in ways and places you never thought possible thanks to an advanced, custom OLED screen that displays images at a super-smooth 120Hz, 360-degree vision and true 3D audio that lets you pinpoint sounds all around you. So you can lose yourself in games custom-built for PS VR, including RIGS Mechanized Combat League and VR Worlds.

Advanced display.
The feeling of ‘being there’ starts with what you see. Combining landscape-scanning and an expansive 5.7” OLED 1080p display at 120 frames per second, you can experience detailed 3D environments of the highest quality to immerse yourself in the game.

Precise tracking and control.
The LEDs around the PlayStation®VR, on the DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller, or the PlayStation®Move are tracked by the PlayStation®Camera to pinpoint your precise location. This means your PS4™ will always know where you are, even if you’ve forgotten.

Get Set For An Eggcellent Easter

With Easter comes the fun of Easter Eggs, family get-togethers, time to have fun (maybe in the sun), and the lovely long Easter break. So with that in mind, we've put together a selection of must-haves to's to see you through Easter.

Delicious Treats For All

It's not Easter without Easter Eggs. Well it is, but the giving of Easter Eggs date back through history, originally as the giving of painted chicken eggs, and then later as papier-maché eggs, in which small gifts were hidden. The first chocolate Easter eggs were made in Europe in the early 19th century, but it was not until 1875 that John Cadbury made the first Cadbury Easter Egg, and without his invention we possibly wouldn't be where we are today.

Fun Ideas For Half Term

The first half of the spring term is nearly over and while the kids might be looking forward to some free time, for parents it can feel like the longest week ever, especially when you can't guarantee good weather.

We've devised a fantastic list of how to keep the kids entertained without spending a fortune:

Things to do during half term

  • Hold a bake off - You can have fun baking biscuits, cakes, crumbles whatever you like. If you have older children you could always split them into two team! On your marks, get set, bake!
  • Snowtime - If it snows, go sledging, build snowmen, go for snow walks, make snow angels. Don't forget to take your camera with you to capture these magical moments.
  • Cinema - Many cinemas hold special viewings for children during the holidays, advertising 'half term deals', and often parents get to go free too. Check out your local cinemas website for up to date information.
  • Go to the park - Parks tend to have lots of things to entertain the kids, usually they have climbing frames and playgrounds for both younger and older children, scenic walks, animal sanctuary's, trees to climb. You can take your football and bikes, as a lot of parks have introduced mountain bike trails, as well as having lots of low level paths to cycle on for those who want to ride on the flat.
  • Search for free events and offers in your local area - these will be listed on your local council website e.g Visitlancashire.com. Zoo's often offer reduced or free entry out of season, and many museums hold special events over the school holidays, many of which are free.
  • Get crafty at home - Potato stamping is a great thing to do with young children. You can pick up blank canvases quite cheaply, and could get the kids to paint directly onto them and then hang them in their rooms when they are dry.
  • Board Games - If it's particularly nasty weather outside why not get all the board games out and have a board game marathon, or if you have a chess board you could teach the kid's how to play chess, once they've learned how to play they'll be hooked!
  • Swim for free - Many councils offer free swimming for children during the half term holidays, parents can either join in or have a well deserved break in the leisure centre cafe :-)
  • Lots of English Heritage and National Trust sites are free to enter  - they often have activities for the kids too. Have a fun filled day out exploring ruins, gardens, castles and more.
  • Build a den - This is fun both indoors and outdoors, in good weather head to the woods (with a responsible adult) collect sticks and broken branches and create a den. if the weather is poor why not pull out the dining chairs, drape towels and bed sheets over and you've (the kids have) got a nice little den to play in for the afternoon.
  • Collect Blackberries - There are still some wild fruits about, grab some buckets and head out, the kids can have a race to see who can collect the most. When you've got your bucket full of blackberries why not head home and make a blackberry pie. We've found a great recipe for blackberry pie from allrecipes.com
  • Upcycle something - If you've got an old lampshade or some furniture in the loft or under the stairs why not let the kids re-decorate them, see how creative the kids can be with paint, stickers and more.

If you're taking advantage of lower holiday prices in winter and are heading off for some winter sun or just planning ahead for summer we have a great range of suitcases and travel accessories to suit your needs.

It's not just warm clothing you need to consider when heading into winter, preparing your home for winter is essential too.

It boasts a toasting 1.4 tog rating, comes in a whole host of colours and is now only £24.99.

heating range

If you suffer from draught coming under the doors in your house a draught excluder is a must. If the draughts come from the side or top of a door a self-adhesive draught excluder is the best option, and if the draught is coming from under the doors a removable draught excluder would be better. As well as ensuring you don't have draughts in your house you need to make sure that your home will be at a comfortable temperature, our heating range has a whole host of electric fires and electric heaters, which will help keep you toasty warm during the cold spells.
