The Playstation VR is coming and it’s going to change gaming as we know it
Virtual reality is coming to your living room this October, with the release of the announcement the Playstation VR will launch this autumn, with costs starting at $700nzd.
Sony surprised the gaming world on Tuesday evening with the comparatively low price of its virtual reality headset. Despite the news that the Playstation VR will also need an addition camera of $200nzd to work, the package is the currently the most affordable of the high end virtual reality headsets on the market.
Altogether Sony’s new VR package looks something like this…
Andrew House, the Sony global chief executive, gave the following comment to The Telegraph this morning.
“To make sure that we are able to prepare and deliver enough units of PS VR and a wide variety of software titles to consumers worldwide, we have decided to launch PS VR in October 2016,” he said. “For those who are looking forward to its launch, we would like to thank everyone for their patience and continued support.”
A bunch of new games are being developed for the platform including a new addition to the Star Wars Battlefield series and a host of new 360′ interactive videos.
In total, Sony’s chief exec. Kaz Hiari has promised more than 100 new titles, best among them a new Assassin’s Creed spin off, the full version of successful Oculus Rift demo Eve: Valkyrie, and the much-hyped horror game Until Dawn: Rush of Blood.
