Listings on Amazon have revealed prices for some PlayStation VR games, giving an idea of what Sony plans to charge for the first wave of virtual reality titles to hit the console platform.
PlayStation VR launches in October and we’ve now got and idea of what to expect in terms of prices for VR games on the platform thanks to Amazon having published a number of PSVR launch titles and their prices:
- Batman: Arkham VR – $19.99
- Loading Human – $39.99
- PlayStation VR Worlds – $39.99
- RIGS Mechanized Combat League – $49.99
- Here They Lie – $59.99
Prices range from $20 to $50 for the VR-exclusive titles. The most expensive title in the list is priced at $60, though it isn’t a VR-exclusive title and will be playable on PS4 without the headset. All five titles are currently available for pre-order.
Sony made a splash last month at E3 where the company revealed an impressive lineup of PSVR titles and add-ons, several of which belonging to impressive franchises, like Batman: Arkham VR, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, and Final Fantasy XV.
$60 remains the defacto price for full featured non-VR triple-A console games, while indie titles tend to command less.
On Steam, HTC Vive titles can be seen with a smattering of prices, anywhere from $1 for tiny experimental experiences, topping out at $40 for bigger games like Raw Data. Meanwhile on Oculus Home, game prices tend to have a higher floor and higher ceiling, with the least expensive game currently at $5 (save for one title), with the most expensive Rift-exclusive title coming in at $50, like The Climb. Gear VR, Samsung’s mobile VR headset which serves games from Oculus Home, has VR games and experiences ranging from $1 to $15. All three platforms have various free early access and demo titles available as well.
