Comments

Sony has released a new video showcasing the PlayStation VR, its upcoming virtual reality headset for PlayStation 4. In addition to providing a look at the form factor, the video breaks down the device's hardware specifications.

According to the video, PlayStation VR will feature a 5.7" OLED display, 1920xRGBx1080 resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, a field-of-view of approximately 100-degrees, an accelerometer and gyroscope, positional tracking with nine LEDS, 3D audio, as well as HDMI and USB interfaces.

In an interview with GameSpot at Paris Games Week, Sony's Shuhei Yoshida said the company is "still not ready for a date and price" announcement, even though the hardware is "pretty much done."

He continued: "Tokyo is working hard to get the system software and the SDK done and continually improve it, to make sure that the experience is great for customers and developers. We also want to make sure that when we launch we also have a good selection of games, so it's a bit too early to sort out a price and date."

Despite this, Sony has previously said PlayStation VR will be available in the first half of 2016, which is mentioned again in the video above. PlayStation president Andrew House also said the headset will be priced "as a new gaming platform," though he did not provide any specific figures.
