Rumor: Playstation VR Will be Priced $299 Once it Comes out
Sony has yet to officially detail the price of PlayStation VR but according to a rumor from reddit, the upcoming virtual reality device from Sony might cost as low as $299 for the standalone product and it will also get a starter kit containing a PS Eye camera, a PS VR game and PS Move controller for $129.
This is what Reddit user sirdomino claims to be a Sony rep's report, at least:
"I spoke to a Sony rep recently (Who is NOT an official spokesman for Sony) that stated that he had heard rumors they were hoping to price the HMD at $299, which won't include the camera or PlayStation move controllers. But that they would probably have a separate starter kit where you could get the camera and move controllers and a game for around $129. For $428 + tax for the complete PSVR + camera + move controllers, would be a bargain! The reason for this is that a lot of folks already have cameras and move controllers."
As this is nothing official, let us not take this rumor too seriously. Sony has said before that the Playstation VR will cost as much as a new console when it releases. If Sony manages to keep the price of the PS VR at $299 once it comes out, it will be a great news to PS4 owners considering on how much Oculus is charging for their Rift headset.
I believe $299 will be a great price tag for the Playstation VR if it is indeed accurate, but I think I'll still wait for the reviews and feedback from users before I try PS VR. How about you guys?
