    Earlier today at a presentation at the Game Developers Conference, Sony revealed some of the most anticipated details of the PlayStation VR headset. Starting sometime in October 2016, you will be able to purchase your very own PlayStation VR headset for around $400 USD. It is worth noting that this release window comes after the GameStop CEO announced early last month that the PlayStation VR headset will not make the projected release window of the first half of 2016.

    The pricing of the headset will obviously vary depending on region, so if you happen to live in the United Kingdom, you'll have to shell out £349, while gamers in Australia will be fronting $549.95. Since you're basically going to be paying the equivalent of a new gaming console, you're probably wondering what you'll be receiving with the PlayStation VR headset.

    Obviously you'll be getting the headset itself, with appropriate charging and docking cables. You'll also receive a pair of earbuds, and more importantly, a small hub like device will also be packaged with your headset, presumably for actually making use of the headset. Something that may catch you a bit off guard is the fact that given how much you're forking out for the headset, you won't be given a PlayStation Move controller or a PlayStation Eye Camera, both of which are required for some games.

    Sony also took the chance to talk about the lineup of games coming with the VR headset, and they announced that there are more than 160 games currently in development spread out among 230 developers. They also stated that more than 50 of these games will be released in 2016, so a fair few of those 50 may just end up being day one launch titles.
