PlayStation VR launches this October, priced £349.99/€399.99/$600 NZD
A transformative new gaming experience is nearly upon us






PlayStation Blog Wrote:With the annual Game Developers Conference in full swing, I’m pleased to give you an exciting update on PlayStation VR. Today, we are announcing that PlayStation VR will release in October of this year for a recommended retail price of £349.99/€399.99/AUD$549.95/NZD$629.95.
That is a bit later than the timeframe we previously stated, and I want to thank everyone for their patience and continued support.

PlayStation VR represents a transformative experience in gaming, and we wanted to take the time needed to launch with a broad variety of content and a sufficient supply of hardware. We are beyond excited to deliver to consumers the amazing experience that PS VR offers.






I’m also pleased to reveal the final consumer version of PS VR, including all of the contents that will come in the package.

Today, more than 230 developers are building content for PlayStation VR, from smaller independent teams to larger studios at the industry’s top publishers. We expect to have more than 50 games available from launch in October 2016 until the end of the year. Of course, the full promise of PlayStation VR will continue to grow over time as talented developers create new experiences and new genres that wouldn’t be possible outside of VR. The future looks bright indeed.

Additionally, The Playroom VR, from our very own Japan Studio, will be available as a free download from PlayStation Store for all PS VR owners at launch. The Playroom VR will include six games that can be enjoyed with friends and family, demonstrating why we believe virtual reality can also be an impactful experience when it’s shared.

All those who purchase a PlayStation VR system will receive a PlayStation VR Demo Disc that will feature a number of playable experiences from some of the best games from the launch line-up.

The standalone PlayStation VR headset will be launching in UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Australia, New Zealand, Poland, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Russia and Czech Republic, in October 2016.

PlayStation VR will be available to pre-order soon. For all the details on PS VR and information on how to pre-order head over to playstation.com/psvr. Please note, the PS4 system, Dualshock 4 wireless controller and PlayStation Camera are sold separately.
With PlayStation VR, the future of gaming is almost here. We’re excited to share more with you as we head into launch later this year.

Already up on MightyApe:

Pretty dam good price considering the market for the other VR headsets. Undercutting the competition by 200+ and they reckon they will still be selling for a profit.

Slight downsides, if you want the full experience you need the PS4 camer ($100 nzd brand new) and 2 move controllers for get your hands in on the action properly ($25-30 ish on trademe etc).

I already nabbed some move controllers for cheap, and trying to get a PS4 camera for cheap too. Hopefully all up ill only be spending $700.

Awesome news though, my bday is in October so now I know what I am getting :D

Can't wait for this!

There is absolutely no way that they are selling that for profit. No chance. Unless they are using the cheapest possible components and materials, not to mention labour.

Still a really good price though.

Except, Sony themselves confirmed they would be selling each headset at a profit!

I don't know how numbers work, but they have confirmed they'll be making money on each unit which is the best news. They can pour that money back into supporting the device.

Profit is profit. But do you think it will be as low as that?
