Playstation VR Will See October 2016 Release Date, Priced At $399


Today Sony announced the Playstation VR will arrive in October 2016 for $399 USD.

The PS4 company took to the stage today to bring the news that the PS4's virtual reality helmet, like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, is coming this year. While many VR enthusiasts didn't know what date to expect the headset, the Q4 2016 window means Sony fans will have to wait slightly longer than Rift and Vive users. Though at a $400 pricetag, the headset's affordability could make it worth the wait. Gamers new to Playstation will have to fork over $400 for the console and another $400 for the headset.

Sony announced the specs of the Playstation 4's VR headset: a 5.7-inch screen, a 1920xRGBx1080 resolution (960xRGBx1080 per eye), a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a field of view of 100 degrees.
