Sony have finally taken the wraps off of the final launch details of the PlayStation VR- the headset will be launching globally this October, for $399 USD/£349/399 Euro/¥44,980. This makes it, by far, the cheapest VR headset on the market, undercutting the Oculus Rift by a hefty $200, and the HTC Vive by a staggering $400.

This means that, if any company has a chance to dominate the nascent VR field and bring it to the mainstream, it is Sony. Not only is the PS4 far cheaper than the high end PCs needed for other premium VR solutions, but the PlayStation VR is also cheaper than the other headsets on the market- by far.

Sony also announced some other important news at their PlayStation VR event at GDC today- the final specs of the headset were announced:

  • 1920×1080 display.
  • 5.7″ OLED display.
  • 120Hz and 90Hz display modes.
  • Approx 100 degree FoV
  • 3D audio support
  • DualShock 4/PlayStation Move compatibility

We’ll have more on the PlayStation VR for you soon. Stay tuned.

    October is a pretty good bu risky release window for a month that’s close to the holiday season.
    If Sony does a great job marketing the product then it might do commercially well for Fall and much of the Holiday period.
    Definitely will check PSVR when I see what killer apps will persuade me to buy it.

    European-amazon-stores first batch of PSVR has sold out, and now selling a second batch ( limited sales to each person ), while both the French and German stores have completely sold out. PSVR is selling out BIG TIME! While PSVR is already pre-sold out at EB Games Australia.

    Also good news is Sony allows different bundle deals. So if people need just the basic headset OR the complete setup Sony has you covered.
