Alright, PlayStation VR is Actually Pretty Cool - US Gamer

Kat tries out the final version of PlayStation VR, almost falls into a TV, and emerges a believer... almost.

The story is too old to be commented.

The author said "there's no denying that VR is a new and novel way to experience games; and that stripped of issues like its price point, the PlayStation VR is a great device. It is undoubtedly the most comfortable I've felt playing with a VR device. We'll see whether VR is truly the second coming that everyone seems to think it is, and whether it can stand up to extended play; but in the short-term, Sony has a winner."

He also said In the years to come, Oculus and HTC headsets will outpace PlayStation VR, and its status as a budget alternative will start to lose its appeal. The best Sony will be able to do is introduce a new SKU alongside the PlayStation 5; but after spending some $450 on a VR headset, it'll be a tough ask for mainstream consumers to upgrade after just a couple years.

A new sku in a couple of years. Will Oculus and the Vive also have a new sku? Probably not because its already to expensive

Okay what's your point?

what makes you think sony won't keep it's price advantage? they could lower the price over time you know...

also oculus already said they'll be coming out with newer versions frequently so everyone who buys an oculus have fun upgrading every year or two

'Oculus and HTC headsets will outpace PlayStation VR'
I don't get what he/she means by that and where this assumption is coming from.
'Will Oculus and the Vive also have a new sku? '
They already said a new model will come very quickly which makes me think it's in line with PC approach of upgrading more often than consoles. https://www.reddit.com/r/IA...

The install base is still small though. A lot people don't have high end PCs like you and me. I'm not saying they don't have a gaming rig just not one that's VR compatible.
