E3: Sony PlayStation VR to Arrive On October 13

Sony’s PlayStation VR headset now has an official release date: The virtual reality device is going to be available to consumers starting on October 13 this year.

Sony made the announcement as part of its E3 keynote Monday evening, where it also reiterated some of the already-known aspects of PlayStation VR: The headset itself will cost $399 and require a PS4 game console. A bundle with the PlayStation Camera and Move controllers will cost $499.

Sony is committed to have at least 50 VR games available at launch. One of those titles will be “Batman: Arkham VR” from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment. The game, which will allow players to immerse themselves in the world of Gothham, will be an exclusive to PlayStation VR.

Sony is releasing its VR headset months after its two main competitors, the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive headset, went on sale. However, Sony is banking on the fact that PlayStation VR is significantly cheaper. The HTC Vive sells for $800, while the Oculus Rift costs $600 without any controllers. Both also require high-end gaming PCs, which easily cost at least another $1000.
