Sony announced that the PlayStation VR will release in October 2016 for a recommended retail price of $399.
The company said PlayStation VR represents “a transformative experience in gaming, and we wanted to take the time needed to launch with a broad variety of content and a sufficient supply of hardware”.
More than 230 developers are currently building content for PlayStation VR – from smaller independent teams to larger studios at the industry’s top publishers.
“We expect to have more than 50 games available from launch in October 2016 until the end of the year,” said Sony.
South Africa was not on the list of countries set to receive the VR system in October.
