How much do you need to play with PlayStation VR?
Let’s break it down for you and answer your first question: how much money do I have to spend before I’m up and playing with a PS VR?
Cost of buying a PlayStation VR (US$499)
Want to justify the cost or you want to convince your mum why it’s “cheaper”? Just tell them that if you’ve opted for the HTC Vive or the Oculus Rift, you’d be paying US$1,200 for a new PC and headset.
Cost of buying a PlayStation 4 (US$399)
As we all know by now, PlayStation VR is powered by a console, not a PC. However, if you already have a PlayStation 4 laying around in your living room then by all means, consider buying the bundled PlayStation VR package.
Cost of buying PlayStation VR Games (US$60-150)
Some games are free, some just costs some considerable amount of cash. A typical game would cost around 60 to 150 US dollars in the PlayStation Store so it would depend on your game preferences. Some games just have a higher price tag compared to others but some are bundled or comes free to play. However, don’t forget coupons or sales. It might just give you some room to save more.
