It does work. Prior to purchasing a Rift, I creatively obtained a PSVR from my son. There were some limitations for me (probably due to the 1050 ti video card I have). I couldn't read the instrument panel unless I zoomed in and it was difficult to spot/identify planes without the icons on. That said it gave a great sense of flight and VR. The rift took it to an entire new level but I would certainly recommend using the PSVR. Trinus is a requirement and it must be running to use the PSVR but it is easy to set up.
Hope this helps.
