Affordable Price Point for Morpheus VR Headset A Priority For Sony

During an interview at this year’s GDC with GameSpot, President of Sony Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida said that price for their VR headset, currently called Morpheus, is of utmost importance.

When asked about Morpheus’ planned price Yoshida stated,

“As low as possibly can be done.” He further elaborated saying “We are not talking about any specific number, but this is a console business. We try to provide the hardware at the lowest possible cost so that more people can come in. And so that developers can make games on to create the market. So we’ll have the same approach.” 

Shuhei also said that several of their development studios are currently working on games for the Morpheus and that announcements “probably” will happen at this year’s E3. Up until this point, only slices of games and tech demos have been used to show off the device.

My Opinion:

Given the PlayStation 4’s launch price, it goes without saying that Sony has learned from past guffaws and they are aware of how vital price points are for their products. Personally, I’m hoping for and expecting something in the $200-300 price range.

It’s also reassuring to know, in the very near future, we are going to see full fledged games that are coming to Morpheus.

  1. It is not better to select high-heeled shoe, if you are an obese.
    The world is really shrinking and ideas are being shared around the globe at a rapid pace.

    The cable breaking system is also new feature added to the line of three wheel strollers.
