Sony will soon reveal more about PlayStation VR, its upcoming virtual reality headset for the PlayStation 4, after months without saying much about the platform. The company is holding a PSVR-focused event on March 15th at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco; the showcase will comprise a presentation and some hands-on demonstrations.
PlayStation VR was first announced at GDC two years ago under the codename Project Morpheus. Sony is yet to issue a price or release date for the final version of PlayStation VR beyond an expected launch in the first half of 2016; PlayStation chief Andrew House has reportedly said that the headset will be "priced as a new gaming platform."
With the PlayStation 4 itself launching at $399 in 2014, that should give Sony some leeway to establish PSVR as the cheapest major VR platform — the Oculus Rift costs $599 and Valve's HTC Vive will go on sale for $799, with both requiring powerful PCs. Whatever Sony has to announce, we'll be there next month to bring you the news direct from GDC.
