You won’t need any special phones or tablets to get it going, though, so it’s not like Samsung’s Gear VR in that way, but you will definitely require a PS4 to get it going.
If anything, though, we are definitely excited, and for a nice surprise, it doesn’t feel like Australia is getting the wrong end of a stick in regards to pricing, since after conversion the $549.95 price isn’t too bad compared to the $399 price in America.
That is excellent pricing, especially since neither Oculus nor HTC has local pricing, and converted pricing is pretty severe in comparison. What Sony hasn’t said is if the Move or PS Camera accessories will drop in preparation or even be changed, though for now, we have to assume these will stick to the same $50 to $100 pricing for each.
Still, though, a great start, Sony.
