Important: PSVR doesn't come with any controllers. Or camera. You'll need those. Hmm. pic.twitter.com/Li1yG0LKk6

The Game Spot quotes, “PlayStation VR will cost €399 in Europe, £349 in the United Kingdom, $549.95 in Australia, and ¥44,980 in Japan.”
The source also writes, “One important thing to note regarding pricing is that PlayStation VR does not come with Move controllers or the PlayStation Camera, which are required for some games. You do get a Wii-sized processor unit and a series of cables, including HDMI and USB, among others.”
The Playstation 4 powered VR experience has been scheduled for launch in October 2016. However, there are no further details on the latest venture.
Stay tuned for more updates.
