Sony has finally unveiled its PlayStation VR and it comes with a few details about it. This headset has been unveiled at the Game Developer Conference in San Francisco. According to reports, the VR kit will be released for public in October 2016 and it will be sold for 399 dollars, which is quite cheap when compared to the HTC Vive (799 dollars) and Oculus Rift (599 dollars). In addition, the gamers that will be interested in purchasing a new console could get a discount of 100 dollars on the VR kit when it will be released.
The PlayStation VR will feature a 5.7-inch OLED display that will support a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. According to Kazuo Hirai, Sony’s President, there will be over 50 games for this headset when it will be released for the wide public. Hirai also mentioned that there are around 230 developers that have been tasked to release these games and one of the included major titles that will be released for the PlayStation VR will be the Star Wars: Battlefront.
The PlayStation VR kit comes with earphones, a power cable, a HDMI cable to connect the console to the VR unit and an USB cable. Keep in mind that the basic PlayStation VR model will not come with Move Controllers and PlayStation Camera, as they would be sold in bundles or separately. In addition, the Move Controllers and PlayStation Camera will be required to operate the VR unit, which means that the gamers will eventually have to purchase them. This is good anyway, as there are many PlayStation 4 owners which already have a camera for their console.
We remind you that the PlayStation VR has been announced two years ago by Sony and back then it was named Project Morpheus. The design of the final product will remain the same with some minor changes, such as the 9 LEDs which help in 360-degree head tracking.
It seems that the PlayStation VR will surely make a lot of PlayStation 4 owners happy. As we’ve told you above, the headset is very cheap and this will make even more gamers to ditch their PCs and Xbox One consoles for the PlayStation 4.
