On October 13th, Sony’s take on Virtual Reality will finally join the gaming world! Are you a belieVeR in PS VR or are you still wanting to believe?
For those of you who’ve been following me on Twitter, you already know that the PlayStation Brah is SOLD on PS VR and I luckily have the bundle pre-ordered through Amazon. Prior to using the PS VR headset, I hadn’t used VR since the Nintendo Virtual boy so I was blown away by it.
That also means I’ve yet to try the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, so I can’t give you a fair comparison of the three. All I know is that the Vive is the so called ‘king of VR’, but with that price tag ($700) AND computer needed to run it, being king comes with a mighty price tag.
The one thing I can compare is the price and thankfully the PS VR arrives at a more reasonable rate of $399.99! OK, so $400 isn’t a drop in the pan and is quite the entry fee. There is a catch though! You have to have a PlayStation Camera (that’s another $60!) and for the full PS VR experience, a couple of PlayStation Move controllers. You will also need a PlayStation 4 (OG, Slim, or Pro) but brah! If you’re reading this, I’m sure you have one. See the main image above? Gonna set you back around $520USD and that is before tax. Yikes. They had a bundle that included it all PLUS PlayStation VR Worlds, but they were gone in a heartbeat. Sorry, brah. Piece by piece, it can get pricey, however I’m sure some of you already have parts of the VR puzzle at home.
As cool (and comfortable) as the PS VR headset is, it ain’t gonna last long without a steady stream of content and Sony seems to be going all out. Here’s a taste of what launches.. day one!
