I know everyone’s bummed out because of the announcement that SAO or Sword Art Online type of vitual reality won’t be coming to reality anytime soon but instead, it’s a virtual reality watching SAO.
It seems that we are becoming more advanced when it comes to technology when Playstation announced last March 15,2016 regarding their upcoming PlayStation VR, which will be launched on October 2016.
For all hard gamers out there, this is a dream come true! There’s just, you know, over 230 developers who are currently working on the content of PlayStation VR…which I’m sure will increase sooner or later. This has been one of the boldest move of PlayStation to keep up the pace with technology since Samsung released their Gear VR last year, November 27, 2015.
Technology does not come cheap and their price for the PS VR is 44,980 yen, $399 USD, €399 and £349. For real gamers, this price is nothing to them.
Just so you’ll know what to expect from this amazing PlayStation VR, below is its specs:
