Will PS4's VR Headset Project Morpheus Be Expensive?

Push Square: "Project Morpheus clearly has plenty of potential, but Sony not only has to deliver on the technology, it also has to get this product into peoples' homes. And that's going to be a challenge for a couple of reasons: it needs to make sure that consumers actually try it for a start, but it also needs to ensure that it's affordable when they do. But with the PlayStation 4 retailing for $399.99 to begin with – and extra cameras and controllers required as well – the big question is: will it cost the Earth?"

Well it's not going to be cheap, that's for sure! I hope it is not as expensive as the PS4, it should be at least 100bucks cheaper imho. But I doubt it will be, because of the tech Sony are packing into it.

I've already eared rumours about 300$ a piece.
Apparently there is a lot of technology in those things.

At this point I think so, although I'm seriously hoping Sony doesn't go into that pitfall.

$199 was the magic price point, but that's out the window IMO, and I think we're looking at $299 minimum.

$299 isn't bad as long as they have the content to support it at launch, and they also need to be patching as many of these older games as possible to support such as Outlast, Far Cry 4, DriveClub, Project Cars, etc...

sony games are really costly, a cost of 300$ a worth of buy any sort of game. an expesnsive console and not affordable gadgets to buy.

Not cheap. I'm thinking the lowest it could be is 199.99. I think that's pushing it but it can't be outrageous or it won't go mainstream.

I don't care as long as it's good. Can't wait to be immersed in a virtual reality.

I'm buying this and either vive or oculus.
