Why buy the PlayStation VR, Sony's virtual reality headset?
Sony's virtual reality headset has been slow to come out. This delay, which some will consider penalizing, will in fact have enabled the Japanese firm to observe, in the shadows, the evolution of the market. It was thus very likely able to spot the mistakes of its competitors, what worked and what did not. The PlayStation VR will undoubtedly have to offer a virtual reality experience that corrects the mistakes of its predecessors, if we can call them that.
In addition, the firm knows how to make video games, much more than Facebook with its Oculus Rift or HTC with its HTC Vive. It will therefore be able to adapt its game mechanics according to this new technology that is virtual reality. As long as you are already a PlayStation 4 player, the console will offer you a three times more accessible than its competition, supported by strong licenses like Batman Arkham VR to name just one.
At what price and when to buy PlayStation VR?
The PlayStation VR will be available from October 13, 2016. It will cost barely more than a PlayStation 4, around € 399.
Unfortunately, the Bundle including all of its accessories (PS4, PSVR, VR Camera) will not be available upon launch. You will therefore have to purchase all your equipment independently.
Keep in mind one important thing, the PlayStation Camera (V2) worth € 60 is essential for using your PS VR. Indeed, this one does not work without.
You will be responsible for purchasing the PS Move that some games require, but most work fine without them. You will find all the information you need in our PlayStation VR test.
If you don't have a PS4 and you're not 100 € ready, we advise you to wait for the release of the PS4 PRO.
