Sony has announced the U.S. release date of the PlayStation VR headset as October 13th, 2016.
At Sony’s E3 2016 press conference the company gave the final U.S. release date for the PlayStation VR headset as October 13th 2016. The company had formerly announced that PSVR would launch in October, but now we know the exact date the headset will reach customers.
At GDC 2016 earlier this year, Sony announced that PSVR would cost $399 as the ‘Core Headset’ package which doesn’t include the PlayStation VR camera of PlayStation Move controllers. The company has since offered a ‘Launch Bundle’ which does include the aforementioned for $499. Online retailers like Amazon and Best Buy have been taking spurious pre-orders based on stock, but at the time of writing both outlets are listed as sold out of the of headset.
Sony says that that PlayStation VR will have 50 titles by the end of 2016.
