$400 PlayStation VR Needs $60 PS4 Camera
After sony's reveal of the Playstation VR headset's price and release date at the Game Developer's Conference this morning, a PlayStation representative has confirmed that the headset will require a PS4 camera to function. The camera is not bundled with the $400 PlayStation VR package by default and must be purchased separately for $60. Those who buy a PlayStation VR will also need to buy Move controllers separately, which are required for some games. Move controllers are normally priced at $50 each, with certain games needing two controllers.
The PlayStation VR is scheduled for launch this October worldwide. Powered by the PlayStation 4, the device will cost $400 in the United States, €399 in Europe, £349 in the United Kingdom, $549.95 in Australia, and ¥44,980 in Japan. This price will get you the headset, a Wii-sized processor unit and a series of cables, including HDMI and USB, among others.
