A plan of Sony to making PlayStation Virtual Reality(VR) Gear and will be rolled out in October 2016 at price $399, change the gaming world as reality.

"Virtual reality represents a new frontier for gaming, one that will forever change the way users interact with games," Sony Computer Entertainment chief executive Andrew House said during a press event in San Francisco on Tuesday.

Sony chose October for the launch of PlayStation VR to allow time for making enough units to meet anticipated demand and to let developers get games ready for the headsets, according to House.

The headsets are designed to plug into PlayStation 4 (PS4) consoles.
Sony touted PS4 as its fastest-selling console ever with more than 36 million of them bought since they hit the market in late 2013.

But there is competition and Facebook-owned virtual reality start Oculus is set to begin shipping its Rift headsets later this month.

PlayStation VR - masoomyfOculus has been taking orders for Rift at a price of $599 and has worked with computer makers to certify machines as powerful enough to handle the technology.
Pre-orders have also been taken on bundles combining Rift with compatible gaming computers starting about $1,500.

Buying a PS4 and PlayStation VR would add up to about half that price.
"We are proud of the price point we have been able to achieve," House said of PlayStation VR.

PlayStation VR users will still need to buy camera and controller accessories, pushing the price up slightly, but it is considerably less expensive than rival headsets that synch to gaming computers, according to Gartner analyst Brian Blau.
"The cost of ownership of PlayStation is going to be a lot more affordable than the PC (personal computer) counterparts," Blau told AFP after attending the Sony event.
And, since millions of PS4 have already been bought, the price of adding virtual reality is comparably lower for owners of those consoles since no computer upgrade is needed.

Game makers dive in
More than 230 developers and publishers are working on games for PlayStation VR, with some 50 titles expected to be available by the end of this year, according to Sony.
The list included French video game titan Ubisoft, which is creating an "Eagle Flight" game that lets players virtually take wing, and a collaboration between Electronic Arts, DICE, and Lucasfilm on a new "Star Wars Battlefront" title for PlayStation VR.
