Playstation VR for $400 in October!

Sony has finally announced the price and availability of the Playstation VR.  It will be $400, coming in October.  This compares with the Oculus Rift for $599 and HTC Vive for $799.  Moreover, the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive require very powerful PCs that can be very expensive to upgrade if you don't already have the hardware for it.  By contrast the Playstation 4 is available for $350.


Why is this important?  Because when people buy the PSVR, they will want content.  And you don't necessarily have to be a game developer.  You can buy a 360 camera to produce 360 photos and videos.  Remember, the PS4 has over 35 million units sold.  If even a fraction of those players get the PSVR, it will dramatically increase the demand for 360 photos and videos!
