PlayStation VR games already promise a rock-solid frame rate and a quality experience, but not every game plays exactly the same through each version of the PlayStation 4 console. Some games are made to play in what Sony calls "enhanced" mode if you have a PlayStation 4 Pro. These improvements can make a big difference, but before you go diving into a console upgrade you should see what games are already available in this new and improved model.

Mini games: PS VR Worlds

PlayStation VR Worlds is a general demo game that comes with the PlayStation VR Bundle. This has several mini-games to get you started in the VR universe. There has been a patch released for this game for better resolution and smoother transitions.

This is one of the best games to play in VR if you truly want to see the difference in the PlayStation 4 versus the Pro.
