Getting close then, wonder what their time frame is.

Mid 2015 is my guess, nothing to substantiate this but here's hoping - that would fall in line with my birthday and a legitimate reason as far as my missus is concerned to buy me one!

This thing is not gonna sell...

breakpad1278d ago

i m saying the same thing while i like pS4, i dont think VR will sell ..but if you see the competition all are prepared for Vr without one proper game in development

Biohazard88601277d ago

Like i want this do to great... but i just see it being another fail and more of a loss of $ for sony.. If people truly believe this is gonna sell big then you are ether a playstation fanboy or just a moron.. look what happened to vita and playstation move in america it barely sold i don't see this being sold to the mass market.

When they bring the games, it will.

It's successor or failure depends entirely on the price and content for it. If they launch it with a demo collection and a few other games and it's $200 it's going to tank.

If they launch it with a decent variety of games, and many games patch support into it at launch with a bigger list patching their game in the future, and it's $200 with the camera, then it has a good chance of being a success.

We'll see which one happens.

the thing is... if this thing became a "VR only" headset than yeah, it will fail, but...
if Morpheus comes to the market as a VR headset that is alson is a "Personal TV" that you can use whit your normal games/movies/shows (maybe even Playstation Now), than i can see a chance of sucess, not a big chance, but yeah, there is a chance.

It's the next evolution in gaming and if it doesn't work now then I can guarantee it will be tried again in the future some time when tech is far far better. I'm buying one day one as long as the price is $350 or less and there is content available that makes it worth owning.

And does this exec actually think cell phone components are gonna make it cheaper. Is this exec buying the same smartphones we all are because the last time I checked smartphones cost $500+.

I really wish we could preview these types of things like everything else. Nature of the beast :(
Would love if they had demo's set up in various places to let people try it out. Though even if that did happen, I'm in Ireland so I can't see that happening here :(

All the same I'm looking forward to what this achieves. Dreamed of VR for ever!
