Sony has unveiled that the long awaited Playstation VR will retail at $399 (£349) and will be released this October, with the announcement coming at the Game Developers Conference 2016.

The $399 price-tag is in contrast to market rivals ‘Oculas Rift’ which will retail at $599 and Steam VRs ‘HTC Vive’ which will be a whopping $799 (£689).

The lower price point and may sound tempting at the moment but don’t forget that you’ll need at least a ‘Playstation Camera’ to use the VR headset and maybe a ‘Playstation Move’ set for the full experience, all additional costs.
