Finally we now know the price of Sony’s PS4-exclusive VR set: $399/£349. Not only that, but we know when it’s going to arrive, too. October 2016 is when you can go out to a local electronics store or, more realistically, officially order one online.
For comparison, major players in the VR game– the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive – come in at $600 and $800, respectively.
It will have a 5.7-inch, 1920 x RGB x 1080 OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. Gamers will have a 100-degree field of view while using the PSVR and can expect use either DualShock 4 or PlayStation Move Controller.
A unique Star Wars Battlefront experience will be among one first many users will be able to play on their PlayStation VR. And this will be the first of 50 games Sony has promised to release this year.
