Pre-orders for Sony's PlayStation VR headset have opened here in the UK once more, confirming the release date for PlayStation VR to be October 13th.  

The price of the £349.99, but this will not include all of the required hardware that PlayStation 4 users will need to use this headset. Buyers will be required to purchase the PlayStation Motion Sensor Camera, which is an add-on that costs around £45-50 new. This means that PlayStation VR will cost around £399.99 in total. 

Aside from the PlayStation Camera users will be required to purchase two PlayStation Move controllers if they wish to play all PlayStationVR titles. These controllers cost around £28-35 new, meaning that PlayStation users will need to fork out around £60 extra to get the full PSVR experience. PlayStation VR will launch on October 13th   

 

At a total UK price of £460 PlayStationVR comes in at a price tag that is much more affordable than both the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive, though it is worth noting that the Oculus Rift does not include motion controllers and that PlayStationVR uses lower resolution displays. 

With PlayStationVR VR has become much more affordable and much accessible to the public, though right now it remains to be seen if Sony will be able to deliver enough high-quality VR experiences on the PS4's hardware to satisfy gamers.

While it's cheaper than the Rift and Vive I'd rather pay extra to get the Rift or Vive for the extra resolution on the internal displays.Quote
