PlayStation VR will cost 349, out in October

UPDATE: PlayStation Camera required, sold separately. (Bundle confirmed for North America.)

UPDATE 16/03/2016 1.31am: It looks like there's going to be a PlayStation VR / PlayStation Camera bundle, at least in North America.

A Sony rep told Tech Insider: "There will be a bundle in the SCEA region [North America] with Move and a Camera."

Unfortunately, no price was given for this, nor was it confirmed for Europe.

Still, it suggests there will be a convenient - and possibly discounted - method of acquiring a fully functional VR kit.

UPDATE 15/03/2016 10.02pm: PlayStation VR does not include the PlayStation Camera, which is required for head-tracking. So you may want to tack another 40 or so onto the initial 349 price. (It currently goes for 38.08 on Amazon.)

ORIGINAL STORY 15/03/2016 9.08pm: The PlayStation VR headset costs 349 / €399 / $399, and comes out in October, Sony announced at its GDC press conference.
