‘It’s not like we are waiting for Oculus to announce their price.’
Sony is planning on releasing the Morpheus virtual reality headset next year for the PlayStation 4; it’s a very cool accessory, but it is a product that comes with a baggage of questions- will it be well supported, especially given Sony’s history of introducing new peripherals that hop on the market bandwagon, only to be abandoned a little while later? Will it even function properly, given the PS4’s relative lack of power? And just how much will it be anyway?
That last question is not one that can be answered now, according to Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida. Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, Yoshida said it was too early to discuss any pricing strategies for the upcoming headset.
“We are talking about launching next year so typically we don’t talk about pricing one year ahead of time,” he started off. “I think we announced the price of PS4 at E3 the year of the launch so that’s five months before the launch. So it’s too early.
“It’s not like we are waiting for Oculus to announce their price,” he added. “We still have work to do to know exactly the cost of goods and so on.”
I can agree with his reasoning here- with the product being as far from release as it is, knowing the price for it right now is probably not very realistic.
