Fans will remember 2016 as the year virtual reality became a thing. Whether that is good or bad is yet to be determined, but there?s no denying that the technology has caught the attention of many gamers. The one that may have gotten the most attention is the PlayStation VR by Sony, since it was revealed that it would be the ?cheapest? of them all, costing only US$399.99.
Since that blockbuster announcement, Sony has also revealed that the PlayStation VR US release date will be in October. The company also sent out a tweet, saying that more pre-order information for the US and Canada would be coming soon.
The hardware has since been pre-ordered like crazy, as reported by Attack of the Fanboy. It?s clear that many fans are excited for this futuristic piece of hardware since it will let them experience video games like never before. The real question is if the initial games during its launch period will be any good.
Fans are currently worried that the PlayStation VR will come in limited quantity once it comes out in October, if the crazy sales stories are true. Since Sony will be releasing more pre-order info on PlayStation VR US and Canada soon, this should make gamers excited for the hardware happy.
PlayStation VR will have 50 games this 2016, some from indie developers and others from major companies. The hardware will be getting some big series names like Until Dawn and Psychonauts in the near future, which shows that it might have a ton of variety as a gaming console.
With all of the excitement about the PlayStation VR, it?s clear that fans are over their initial fears of the hardware after the Virtual Boy flopped years ago. Will PlayStation VR take players to the future of gaming? Fans will have to wait and see.
