Given that the PS4 itself is priced at $399, it'd be interesting to see how Sony prices an expensive technology like VR headsets.
$150 bucks, mark my word!!
$199, packed with no mans sky.
$199... $249 bundled with a PS4 camera and a game.
199 will be a good price.
200 is still very expensive for an accessory. I mean I don't see this kind of tech being cheap so I get that it will be fairly pricey.
@Number-Nine This is more than just an accessory though, it's basically a monitor. They haven't said anything yet but I really hope the old 3D movies will be supported on this. $200 would be a steal if this supports 3D movies. Should really be at $300 for how amazing this would be (if everything is as promised), but I think they'll lower it to $250. At $200 it would really fly off the shelves IMO.
@Dir_en_grey While you are right saying this is a monitor, commoners may not thinking the same thing. It's up to Sony how they market it, an acc? a monitor? or something else?. The marketing can't make a mistake here.
That sounds about right. I've been thinking for a while that $199-&299 (bundle or not) would be a realistic number. I already have the camera, 2 move controllers, and a nav controller so I'm not looking for any bundles. I'd love another sports champions game with Morpheus. Had so much fun playing those games with my fiancée but if it came to Morpheus, it would limit multiplayer.
PS4 is $399 now but I doubt it'll be that way at the end of the year. I'm expecting it to drop to $299. As for morpheus, hopefully $199 at most. I'd consider it at that price.
Too much to want it
To be successful it can't be more then $150 and even then I think this gen of consoles can handle VR. Rumors of a 395x2 with over 15 Gflops and people are saying that will be the 1st card capable of AAA VR. PS4 struggles to hit 1080p @ 60fps. VR needs AT LEAST 1080p to each eye at 120fps. And you can still see a screen door at 1080p. Better to go for 4k. 60fps @ 4k needs a Titan X or 295x2.
You post a lot of facts yet you completely ignore what Sony has listed as the current stats for Morpheus. But then again, how can I forget that you admitted to not having a ps4 back when the Order launched and have time and again trolled Sony articles. Do us all a favor and just go back to MrX's blog and pretend like Augmented Reality is a brand new concept.
£249 on its own, 300 with camera
Anyone know if this can be worn comfortably with glasses?
If you need them for distance, I wouldn't think you'd need them as the screen is right up to your face. For reading? That's a good question.
according to latest previews, they took care of that, so you dont need to worry.
I think 300 is unattractive, that type of money is more designated for a new console. If it had more applications, like the ability to go outside with it, or helped you with your daily procedures like phone calls, internet surfing etc. etc. 300 might be a more att price, but i don't even think people want to bring VR devices outside anyway. Sony used to be the king of multiple application devices, and working well it into consumer needs, and reasonable investment. For this device they really need to tap back into that era.
Optimistically 150 Realistically 199 What I think so that I can either not be surprised or be happy 299
they probably have different price range one that is cheap, and another very expensive
In a perfect world, it'd be free. In the world we live in, probably $200 – half a PS4 but much more than a Vita TV.
I hope between the US$250-350 mark with the Sony Eye camera as standard. They could bundle it with a VR-related game ( like say Project CARS or a Sony exclusive VR-demo/actual game ) which could even push the price a little bit further.
$200 makes sense.
$250 is probably a safe bet. Sony's going to be aiming to take the the low-end VR market. The Rift will probably be around $300 and the Vive is looking like it'll be the targeting the premium $400 price point.
you guys are nuts if you think this think will be under 250..
Samsung Gear VR is going to sell at US$199 at Best Buy so Sony's I think will fetch a much higher price. ( http://gaminrealm.com/2015/... ) Around the US$250-350 mark I think will be the target. Really hope they put in the PS4 camera as standard.
