I really liked Sony’s Morpheus VR headset when I tried it out at E3 last year, but how much will the thing cost gamers? The tech behind the VR headset is impressive, but it is pretty high end. While some people were hoping it would cost less than $300, a new quote from Sony themselves raises questions about what you’ll need to pay to have VR in your home with your PS4.
In an E3 2015 article about Morpheus on WIRED, Sony gives a hint at how much it’ll cost:
â€œWe need to convince PS4 owners to spend several hundred dollars to purchase a Morpheus headset, on top of the PS4 they already have,â€ says Shuhei Yoshida
What will that “several hundred dollars” get you? WIRED says Sony plans on showing some new VR games at E3 this year including a VR music game from Harmonix, as well as a VR edition of the popular racing game Trackmania. While it’s doubtful we’ll hear any final pricing at E3 this year, Sony will be showing off Morpheus VR at their press conference tonight at 6:00pm as well as in their booth on the show floor.
