Playstation VR should be roughly the price of the console.

In a report from Bloomberg, Sony revealed that the Playstation VR will have a cost to rival that of the console. When asked about the upcoming accessory, Sony Computer Entertainment Chief Executive Officer Andrew House said "The unit will be priced as a new gaming platform he said, without giving numbers." House also spoke about what the huge drive to get people to play that, saying:“VR rewrites the rule book on how you can create games. You’re seeing a large amount of interest and work happening among smaller teams, because it’s possible to create something in VR that is very simple but still very magical.”

Expect to pay somewhere between $300 to $450 or £200 to £300. With a launch expected in the first half of 2016, that will give those who want to be early adopters a chance to save a bit of money. 

Sony has all the details on what to expect from the headset, and after reading those, the price tag begins to make a lot more sense.
