Sony might release its virtual reality device this fall, and this item sits among the future VR systems that will make serious waves in this new domain. There have been numerous speculations around it and here are some details regarding the platform.
PlayStation VR is in the same segment with Facebook’s Oculus Rift scheduled for release next month and HTC’s Vive available for preorders these weeks. With that being said, Sony’s device could be launched this autumn in the US.
Aside the issues regarding the present American launching schedule, the big downside for VR lovers is Sony’s firm opinion during discussions with components producers in tech industry. Companies are now getting ready for the releases of their important VR items, so US sellers are discussing with HTC, Sony and Oculus, which is expected to happen during this time of the year.
Until Sony releases a formal statement, people cannot be sure if the VR gadget will really be offered in stores at the rumored date. PlayStation VR will supposedly have a $300 price tag, which is significantly less in comparison to the first similar devices that arrived last year.
Some anonymous sources say that they discussed with Sony’s representatives about this problem and other details will be released in the next days. Following the same line of thinking, the system will be marketed independently from Sony’s PS4 digital camera and the PlayStation Move.
If the VR device is included with these components, then it will have a very high price tag for Sony’s numerous clients who already purchased them. It is good to notice that a number of European sites published reports of the gadget with a cost that goes even up to $500.
In Nov 2015, Sony presented its PlayStation VR through videos that revealed the device’s hardware specs. It will arrive with a large 5.7” OLED screen sporting a resolution of 1,920 by 1,080, where it will be placed at 960 by 1,080 for each eye.
This offers a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a lower latency of just 18 ms. Also, it will be equipped with a gyroscope and an accelerometer, 3D lens, permanent monitoring with a series of LEDs that provide a 360-degree perspective and a roughly 100-degree motion for the user.
When it comes to the interface, the device will have USB and HDMI along with a microphone and stereo ports for a complete 3D sound experience.
