There are a number of virtual reality products that will hit the market sometime this year, including the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Sony can now be added to that list with its announcement that the PlayStation VR will be available in October at a cost of $399. A number of peripherals will be included in the purchase price, but the required PlayStation Camera is sold separately for $59.99. Gamers will have access to The Playroom for free, which provides six "family-friendly" mini games, and an additional 50 games will be available this year. Sony added that 230 developers, "from smaller independent teams to larger studios at the industry’s top publishers," are currently working on VR offerings. Sony released a statement regarding the device and its October release date, stating "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, we have decided to launch PS VR in October 2016. For those who are looking forward to its launch, we would like to thank everyone for their patience and continued support. We are beyond excited to deliver to consumers the amazing experience that PS VR offers."
