[/blockquote]Virtual reality has been ear marked as the future of Gaming and every tech company is struggling to get a piece of the pie. Sony has finally announced that the PlayStation VR, which will cost $399 (UGX 1.4 million), before taxes and it will be available in October 2016. The company has today shared this news during a short keynote at the 2016 Game Developer Conference in San Francisco, CA.
If you already own a PlayStation 4, this price is considerably cheap, and even if you don’t, the total cost is much less than Sony’s VR competitors. Facebook’s Oculus Rift starts at $599 (UGX 2 million) and Valve’s HTC Vive will sell for $799 ( (UGX 2.7 million)), but both of those headsets require powerful PCs that can cost much more than the $299 (UGX 1 million) PS4.
Sony confirmed that the consumer version of the PlayStation VR will have the same technical specs that have been rumored: the main 5.7-inch OLED screen is capable of displaying games at up to 120 frames per second, and has a resolution of “1920 x RGB x 1080,” meaning each pixel gets full RGB color.
The company also promised that 50 games will be released between the October launch and the end of the year.
