PlayStation VR Will Get a Price and Release Date
While much more has been shown about the PlayStation VR in the last couple months, fans have still been left in the dark as far as knowing when they will be able to purchase the new tech. That will hopefully change during PlayStation Experience.
As far as we know, PlayStation VR is still on track for release in the first half of 2016. Though it is on the very tail end of that, there’s a high probability that they will announce that PlayStation VR will be available at the end of June.
PlayStation VR, at the time Project Morpheus, only saw a few minutes of stage time during Sony’s 2015 E3 press conference — not nearly enough time for a new piece of hardware whose launch is being treated as a new platform. The move made sense if the product was still over a year out. There is no need to burst the proverbial hype bubble among consumers by gaining their excitement and not following through for many, many months (see Watch_Dogs).
It will need the extra time front-and-center at E3 2016 to capitalize from the exposure at the biggest gaming event of the year.
