    Sony Announces PlayStation VRís Price and Release Window

    http://fraghero.com/sony-announces-p...elease-window/



    2016 being the year of VR, itís no surprise Sony is in on the race. At the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, they gave the price and availability of the headset.




    The release window is October 2016. Itíll price at $399, Ä399, £349 and 44,980 yen. Comparing that to other VR headsets, Valveís HTC Vive is priced at $799. Oculus Rift comes in at $599. Itís nice to see some symmetry in these price ranges, with each announcement being $200 less than the last.

    Sony President Andrew House announced that the new media player will launch at the same time as the headset, and ďover 50 games will be released from October to the end of the yearĒ.

    Talking up his own headset vs. the competition, House also mentioned the visor style design is to reduce the pressure on the playerís face. Itís also made with lighter-weight materials than others.

    As far as price is concerned, House seems to believe that the only way VR will pick up among gamers is if itís reasonably affordable. Hence the much cheaper price compared to other headsets. He was met with a nice round of applause after announcing the price.

    They are also planning to release a more powerful PS4

    I'm actually happy Ive held off on buying one. I'm sure they will have an option to bundle the new VR hardware with the next gen.

    yeah sounds like the PS4.5 is gonna have 4k resolution capabilities, that combined with VR would be pretty insane (I have no idea what the VR set is capable of yet though)

    I'm sure I'll cop the upgrade, there's no way I could've held off buying a current gen console until this update though

    true, I don't think the industry is ready for native 4k on a large scale yet
