Sony has been saying for the past wee while that ps vr will launch in the first half of the year, so not sure if one could really take this gamestop thing seriously at the moment.

What i really want to know about though is the price

Yeah it seems to have gone from $400 to $700 plus in most peoples estimations. That price with a new baby in 5 weeks rules me out Im afraid. Maybe next year!

If that is the case, then wouldn't oculus rift be a better investment? I can see the power of the system being a limiting factor for PS VR.

My take on this is that PS VR is a nice consistent platform for developers so they only have to tune to one set of hardware/software rather than the plethora of PC systems out there.  I think that it is possible to get the better VR experience out of the rift.

My other issue with the Rift, which is not really with the rift itself, is that I will also have to upgrade my graphics card which makes it a much more expensive proposition.

I'm quite keen on some kind of VR or on head screen.

It needs to work nicely with my headphones though :)

Anyone else see this vid and feel depressed? I hope it's just this 1 developer that didn't learn from the whole ps move and kinect fiasco.

Awesome! Was around what I was hoping for but less then I was expecting, I still have my old move controllers too so I'm set there. I'll probably still hold off from a day 1 purchase, but it's definitely on my radar at that price.

We’ve just gotten confirmation that the Australian pricing for PlayStation VR is $549.95.

We’ll also be receiving it in October 2016.

At this point we have no idea what the additional cost will be however. Sony has confirmed this price will not include the PlayStation Camera, which is actually required for PlayStation VR and retails at $89.95 in Australia.

There’s also the move controllers to consider. For the best possible experience you’ll also need a couple of those as well.

Most likely, all up. You’re looking at paying around $650-$700 depending on your situation. I already have the PlayStation Camera and a couple of Move controllers, but I suspect I’m in the minority there.

I was just reading that article and it's a good thing to point out as I don't know many people that have the camera or move controls,  added cost on top.

I do however have the camera and move controls so minimum cost for me  :troll:

tempted but may hold out a bit longer.

I would just need to buy 1 more move controller as I have the camera and 1 move controller, move stick and and that ps move assault rifle gun.

So, what games are going to work with this?

I can't seem to find a list anywhere?

All games?

Only some, after updates?

I'm still skeptical about playstationVR. If it can't deliver a 3D experience with decent graphical fidelity then I cant see myself getting into it. Everything I have seen so far is lame.

Project Cars is meant to work with VR in future - if it can deliver that level of graphics and gameplay then I would be sold.

I gave away my move controllers :(

But at the end of the day I probably wouldnt use them - they are gimmicky - but give me the headset and a dual shock and something  like fallout, doom, eve, and I'll be a happy camper
