Reasons Why PlayStation VR Could Outrun Oculus Rift
The PlayStation VR features will have an upper hand compared to Oculus Rift when it will be available in the market this October. This will determine the total sales revenue for each device, potentially giving PlayStation VR headset a great start in 2016.
Recently, Sony’s PlayStation department said what every user was waiting for: The PlayStation VR will be available in the market this year at a cheaper price. This comes barely two months after Oculus said that their first user friendly headset, known as Oculus Rift will be available in the market late in March and it will cost less than 600 dollars, a price that brought mixed reactions from customers.
With 30 million PlayStation 4’s already bought, globally there are many people who can purchase the virtual reality experience if it was less than 400 dollars. Not considering the price however, the PlayStation already has a mass amount of users in it’s established platform. That will be a huge advantage in assisting PlayStation to move fast.
Oculus recently merchandised Oculus ready desktops made by their affiliates Alienware, ASUS, and Dell. The computer headsets packages will give users a high quality experience with perfect images and a reliable hardware. It’s set to cost about $1,499.
When comparing the Oculus Rift and Playstation VR, Playstation VR has an upper hand of reaching the masses and being received well by the user, giving it a better chance to succeed than the Oculus Rift.
