During the PlayStation E3 2016 Press Conference Sony has finally confirmed a release date for the launch of their highly anticipated virtual reality headset designed specifically to be used with the PlayStation 4 called the PlayStation VR.
The PlayStation VR will be available to purchase from October 13th, 2016 onwards and will be priced at a more affordable $399 when compared with the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive headsets that are currently available to purchase priced at $599 and $799 respectively.
To be able to enjoy the PlayStation VR you will also require a PS4 system, PlayStation Camera, DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller and the PlayStation Camera which are all sold separately if you don’t already have them.
From the moment you slip on PlayStation VR, the new Virtual Reality system for PlayStation 4, you’ll experience games in an entirely new way. You’ll be at the centre of the action, living every detail of extraordinary new worlds – and you’ll feel like you’re actually inside the game. PlayStation has always delivered experiences beyond our imagination, from 3D gaming to augmented reality. That heritage takes a leap forward with PS VR. Now, you can step beyond the screen and climb into the game.
You’ve played games that have made you lose track of time. But what about games that make you forget where you are? That’s what PS VR will do, immersing you in the game with an unparalleled sense of presence. Just plug in and play. PS VR is powered by PlayStation 4, so you can simply connect the two and step into new experiences in seconds.
