Virtual reality is coming to the PlayStation 4 in October
PlayStation VR, Sony’s virtual reality headset, will launch in October, the company announced March 15 during its keynote at the annual Game Developers Conference. The gadget will cost $399, plus the cost of the necessary camera and optional controllers.
PlayStation VR is designed to work with Sony’s PlayStation 4 console. It will boast more than 50 games before the end of the year.
A version of Star Wars: Battlefront will be available for the headset, but it’s unclear when that will launch. Other previously announced games include Eve: Valkyrie, Robinson: The Journey, and Wayward Sky.
Sony says its headset will allow other players to participate in games by creating two images: one for the headset, and another for for a TV.
PlayStation’s virtual reality gadget will arrive months after PC-based headsets from Oculus VR and HTC hit the market. The first Oculus Rift headsets will be shipping in late March, while HTC’s Vive is expected to arrive in April.
