Though Sony’s announced $400 price point for PlayStation VR was deemed fair by many, including Oculus VR founder Palmer Luckey, that’s only for the base headset. One will need to purchase a PlayStation Camera and PlayStation Move controller for the full experience, which further increases the price point.
It seems Sony has a solution for the same though, as an SCEA rep with PlayStation worldwide studios head Shuhei Yoshida stated to Tech Insider that, “There will be a bundle in the SCEA region [North America] with Move and a Camera.”
A price point wasn’t revealed though and when asked why the PS Camera (which is necessary) wasn’t included, Yoshida said “We didn’t put it in because many people already own it.” How many people? “A large enough number of people.”
Considering the 36 million or so PlayStation 4 owners, that may not be too far off-base. In the meantime, stay tuned for more information on PlayStation VR and the proposed bundle.
