PlayStation VR launches in October for £349 -

PlayStation VR will go on sale in October for £349.99, Sony has announced.

The virtual-reality headset will ship with a copy of Playroom VR, a pair of in-ear stereo headphones and a dedicated processing unit, which must be plugged in to your PS4 in order to use it. It won't, however, include a PlayStation Camera, which Sony says is required to use PSVR. They can be picked up separately for around £50.

And here's the device's specs:

Over 50 games are due to release before the end of the year, including first-person Until Dawn spin-off Rush of Blood, multiplayer mech shooter RIGS, Eagle Flight, REZ Infinite and PlayStation VR Worlds, which bundles in 5 VR "experiences", including The London Heist, Into The Deep and Danger Ball.

Over 240 third-party publishers and developers are working on PS VR as well, although there appear to be a number of key omissions, including Activision, Rockstar, Bethesda and Epic Games. Independent developer Hello Games is absent from the list too, suggesting that a VR version of No Man's Sky may not be in the works after all.

The list of Sony's first-party studios working on VR has not been revealed.

PlayStation VR had previously been due to arrive in the first half of 2016 but, according to Sony Computer Entertainment president Andrew House, was pushed back to October to "make sure that we are able to prepare and deliver enough units of PS VR and a wide variety of software titles to consumers worldwide".

Pre-orders for PlayStation VR are currently available at GAME, and are due to open up at 11am this morning on Amazon.
