Tekken 7 Director Hopes Playstation VR Isn’t More Than $400

Katsuhiro Harada clearly doesn't have any insider knowledge but count him among those rooting for a more affordable price point.

The fact that Sony hasn’t actually said what it is going to charge for its Playstation VR has some gamers very, very nervous. Considering the Oculus Rift is going to be selling for $599, there appears to be reason for those nerves. One person in particular in the industry is hoping Sony will allow wiser heads to prevail and not actually price their version of the VR tech at a number that is actually steeper than any of the consoles currently on the market.

Katsuhiro Harada was recently asked on Twitter what his thoughts were when it comes to the price of the PlayStation VR and the price was then pitched that it should be in the $300-$400 range. The Tekken 7 director responded with a very simple “I hope so.” For obvious reasons, Harada isn’t going to be real effusive when it comes to what he wants the price to be, because he certainly doesn’t want to be seen as someone who is actually taking Sony to task if they end up charging more for the device when it launches.

There had been talk last year the PlayStation VR would cost about the same as a console, so the $300 to $400 range makes sense. That range could also be a way to be a real competitor to Oculus by marking the price so much lower than its top rival. We’ll just have to wait and see when the information finally gets released.
