If you’ve ever wanted to experience a 225-inch television screen from eight feet away, PlayStation VR is there for you.

During a press conference today, Sony announced that its upcoming virtual reality device will allow the user to play movies and PS4 games on a virtual screen in its Cinematic mode.

“Supported content for the Cinematic mode includes standard PS4 games and videos as well as variety of PS4 features including Share Play and Live from PlayStation,” reads the press release from Sony. “Users will also be able to enjoy 360 degrees photos and videos that are captured by devices such as omnidirectional cameras on PS VR via PS4 Media Player, which will let them feel as if they are physically inside the captured scene.”

The virtual screen in Cinematic mode floats in black space, and can be adjusted in size. The largest setting mimics a 225-inch monitor, which is about the size of a garage door. Not too shabby.

Sony also announced the long-awaited price and final release window for the PlayStation VR today, March 15th, during a special event at GDC 2016.
