Sony PlayStation VR Unboxed – What’s Included

If you’re in the market for a virtual reality gaming device this holiday season, you’ll be spoiled for choice. There is a host of virtual reality headsets available on the market in a variety of different price ranges. Sony has already announced the pricing for its PlayStation VR – it will retail for $399 or £349. That makes it much cheaper than its main competitors, the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive. But what exactly do you get for the $399 you pay?

The PSVR does need the PS Camera however, some people may already have it so it makes sense not to include it in the PSVR package. The same is true for the PS Move since some people may already have it already and it is not a mandatory control device like the PS Camera since you can always use your dual shock 4. Again it makes sense not to include the PS Move in the package.

As for saying that you need a PS4 for the PSVR is rather stating the obvious.

Once way of enticing buyers who get the PSVR is to offer a discount for the PS camera and the PS Move controller(s) for those that don't have them, although this type of offer would be up to the individual stores. It may be possible that if you want all the items including a PS4 then most likely package deals will be in the offering. By doing this there would be no need for different boxed sets which would actually add to the overall price of the products.

I agree partially, but it depends what you want PSVR for as to whether the camera is actually 'required'; if you just want it for the cinematic mode, for example, you won't need a camera at all.

Personally, I want it for all of its features, so will need the camera (which I bought when I got my PS4) and I'll need the Move controllers to increase the immersion (which I still have from when I used them on PS3), so I'm good - can't wait!

" PlayStation Move retails for $99.98." . Really ? . Don`t think so .

Looks like one of our writers used a bundle price instead, fixed :-)

It is complete utter shit that they don't include the demo disc in the core version. I'm sure there are plenty people, such as myself, that already have a camera and move controllers. To hold the disc ransom is absurd! That should be included with every Psvr.

G20WLY1269d ago

Agreed, I'm in the same boat. I'm hoping they'll sort that out before launch, because I was gutted when I heard that. Otherwise eBay will get my sale instead, as some are bound to sell the demo disc on pretty quickly.

Juiceid1269d ago

At the very least they should sell the disc separately.

The demos will be free for download on the PS Store.

So the PSVR comes with a mini-ps4?

Yes. To the 3D sound and to pass the video image to the tv.
