PlayStation VR Requires PlayStation Camera Sold Separately

PlayStation VR, camera, GDC

Add some more $ on to the original cost.

Aside from detailing the price and release date for the PlayStation VR today at GDC 2016, Sony has also revealed that to use the new equipment, players will have to purchase the PlayStation Camera.

The PlayStation Camera will not come bundled in the box with PlayStation VR upon release, but is already available for purchase right now, retailing for around $60/£40. This is in contrast to the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive that have included all equipment necessary to get started and playing inside the box. Perhaps this was to avoid those who already own the accessory from ending up with duplicates.


Sony announced the requirement for the virtual reality gear in the Tweet below:

PlayStation VR will launch in October worldwide for the retail price of $400/£350.
