Join us live from GDC 2016 in San Francisco as Sony reveals key details on PlayStation VR!

We've heard pricing and release details on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive - now it's Sony's turn. After the eye-watering prices of those virtual reality headsets, all eyes are now on Sony to provide a more affordable alternative.

Hopefully we'll also get a better glimpse at some of the games headed to PlayStation VR, and announcements from some of the other developers supporting the technology.

Could a few fan favourite PlayStation franchises also be shown?

The show is due to start at 9pm UK time, and Oli is on the ground to report the announcements as they happen.

Our live coverage of this event has finished

Coverage

19:21

Welcome to our live reporting from tonight's PlayStation VR event in San Francisco! There's no livestream, but Oli is in the audience for us.

19:23

_LarZen_ says:

Don't you think it's strange that it's behind "closed doors?". If they are going to show some new content and finally say the date and price wouldn't it be beneficial for Sony and PlayStation for fans around the world to see it?

GDC is primarily a developer event but we're still expecting the news we're all waiting for - and Sony still has E3 for a more public showing.

19:31

Smart money would put the price at or around the same RRP as the PS4 itself - although Sony will want to aim as low as possible to avoid another "$599" moment.

20:02

We're one hour away! (Although Sony press conferences have a time-honoured tradition of starting late).

20:07

Games we're expecting see demoed today include Until Dawn's PlayStation VR follow-up Rush of Blood, and hopefully more of VR exclusives Rez Infinite and Psychonauts: In the Rhombus of Ruin.

20:08

Ubisoft also has a trio of VR projects - aerial flying sim Eagle Flight, some kind of Assassin's Creed movie tie-in experience and today's just-announced multiplayer VR game Werewolves Within.

20:25

Fudce says:

Can we put headphones over our eyes and pretend we're watching virtually?

20:25

20:32

Hi everybody! I'm in!

20:33

I say in. I'm sat outside on the roof of a mall next door to the Moscone conference hall. It's a typically crips sunny San Francisco day. We'll be filing in to the presentation in 10 minutes or so.

20:34

I reckon this will be a fairly short presentation - I believe it'll come straight from PlayStation's boss of bosses, Andrew "big fish little fish cardboard box" House.

20:35

I'm definitely expecting price and date, or at least a release window. All eyes will be on that price after the eye-watering cost of Rift and Vive - but can Sony really make their VR headsets any cheaper? The hardware's similar, and Sony are shipping an extra processor box too.

20:36

Of course, a PS4 is a good deal cheaper than a VR-ready PC.

20:37

I don't know if we'll see any new game announcements today, but I hope so. We've got hands-on demos after the presentation.

20:38

Rez Infinite is a dead cert - Tetsuya Mizuguchi is just over there, looking cool in black today.

20:39

The real question, you're me, is how much more time in virtual reality I can take. I've come straight from a morning of back-to-back Rift demos. It was fine - until it wasn't.

20:39

Anyway I'm going to queue to get a good seat now. Wish me luck!

20:40

Kables says:

Anything less than £500 and i'm in. The me of 30 years ago would be squealing in delight about now.

We're betting on £399 here.

20:40

$499 dollars or Euros. There, I can't take it back now.

20:49

I'm sat down. This is a pretty intimate gathering as these things go - maybe 300 press here.

20:50

I can confirm that Sony are still keeping the manufacturers of intensely blue spotlights in business.

20:52

busta.rhymes says:

ok now how about release date? what you people predict?

I'm going.... September.

20:54

Today's mood music is acid jazz. GDC doesn't do dubstep. It's too chill.

20:56

It's gone a bit more ambient now. The sort of music you'd expect to play in the reception of an LA oxygen bar, with 4K screens showing slow-motion video of porpoises.

20:57

Here comes Andrew House!

20:57

Awkward pause - his mic's not working.

20:58

And we're back. Andy's bragging about PS4 sales.

20:59

It's been a long road for virtual reality, he's saying. PSVR started in 2010 as individual passion projects for a few teams throughout the world.

20:59

House says it reminds him now of the anticipation they all had when building the first PlayStation.

20:59

"We've always used technology to push the boundaries"... oh god he mentioned the Emotion Engine, didn't he get the memo

21:00

More emotions from VR: fear, exhilaration, curiosity, power and joy.

21:01

Sony has more than 230 devs building content for PSVR.

21:01

There's a common thread that connects them all, Andy says: a wide-eyed enthusiasm for a new medium. "VR is a big part of the future of games."

21:02

It;s a game showreel. There's something caled VR Worlds which seems to be a demo compilation. Harmonix Music VR, is that new?

21:02

21:03

A few names I didn't recognise there, but nothing major.

21:05

Andy showed a side of the final hardware - it looks very much like the prototype. Processor box confirmed. Bunch of other pack-ins, mostly cables and headphones and the like.

21:05

21:05

DSporacht says:

Geoff Keighly's periscoping it: https://www.periscope.tv/w/1YpJkaVqoQMKj

21:06

Andy's talking tech specs now, but as far as I can tell it's all the same as the specs of the prototype hardware.

21:07

October. $399, 399 Euros, £349

21:07

Round of applause for that. Way lower than I expected.

21:07

44,980 Yen, as well.

21:08

This is huge. A very aggressive move against the PC headsets.

21:08

They've targeted October, House says, to ensure there are enough games and that they can manufacture enough hardware to meet demand.

21:09

Cinematic mode: you can play standard PS4 games or enjoy Netflix on a virtual big screen at three different zoom levels.

21:09

More details about "entertainment content" in the coming months.

21:09

21:10

There'll be a new media viewer app for VR photo and video support.

21:11

The Playroom VR will also be a free download for all owners.

21:11

Star Wars Battlefront

21:12

There'll be a special version produced by EA, LucasArts and DICE exclusively for PSVR. Big.

21:12

Also, Sony's tracking 50 PSVR games for release between October and the end of the year.

21:13

Thanks, he says. I think we all thank him back, no?

21:15

Very impressive. Sony's electronics production might - and perhaps, its willingness to take a loss on hardware - brings a pretty attractive price. They said it would be around the cost of a new console, and it turns out they meant it.

21:16

As a lot of you are pointing out, this means a potential PSVR vs Nintendo NX clash at retail this Christmas.

21:16

Lots of questions still. How much for a bundle with Move and a camera? And where are the massive first-party PlayStation games?

21:17

Though bringing Battlefront in answers the AAA question to a great degree - and leaves Sony free to concentrate on the really important part, innovation.

21:18

Sony's record with PlayStation add-ons and alternative platforms isn't great, though. And the mass market appetite for VR is completely untested.

21:21

fredrikpj says:

@Oli Welsh, give Keighley a hug from us!

If I can do it without getting arrested, I will.

21:27

Sorry, pulled away for a brief chat with the PR. Right, I'm going to go play some demos. Huge stuff from Sony tonight - a really big win. I'm interviewing Shu Yoshida tomorrow, so if you have any questions for him, ping me with an @Oli here, private message me on the site, or tweet me @oliwelsh.

21:27

Peace!

    The only upside to that price for an ADD-ON is that you won't have to upgrade the hardware to use it.Still far too much though for what will be a niche product for a good few years, if not, forever.

    Anything less than £500 and i'm in. The me of 30 years ago would be squealing in delight about now.
    clairesmart 2 years ago
    i would say they price the PSVR around $300 as its a good price point for bundles.
    alexatkin 2 years ago
    I too hope PSVR is affordable as for me both Vive and Oculus are too expensive for what will still be a huge compromise/transitional unit.It takes at least 4K to fill your peripheral vision on a 2D screen without the pixels being too obvious, so VR needs at least 8K before it will look remotely seamless. We are some years away from that.

    Paraphrasing Sony's wording from a few weeks ago... The words 'console' & 'launch' would imply £349.99. With a kid on a way i could just about afford this. Anything less is a bonus.

    Will it have eye-tracking?

    I have a Rift ordered but really want PSVR to be cheap and succeed so that VR as a whole gains traction.

    Still deciding wether to get Vive or Oculus, only going to be sitting in a chair or sofa, not moving around..

    I hope whatever it is the dollar price doesn't mean the price in pounds, ie: $299 becomes £299. Dying to know the price! I hope they surprise us, in a good way :)

    I see a £250 to £300 hedseat only option as very likely. Remember Rift is £600 but that includes a cmaera/sensor for tracking, an Xbox One controller, a couple of free games and the Rift has twin screens rather than a single panel like PSVR. So £300 or less headset only is very believable. Also I can;t see them selling it for more than a PS4 is nowadays, which is around £270.

    In the bright new VR future the live stream will give us all a front row view, we'll be able to witness gaming history unfold mere feet away......or in this case read about it on a fancy virtual screen hovering mere feet away. It's going to be glorious.

    Can we put headphones over our eyes and pretend we're watching virtually?

    I am ready... so ready that I booted up the laptop after trying to post this on my phone 4 times. Anyway - first half of 2016 Sony? Go on... you said you would.

    @Malek86 I think you might be right with $299 for a basic PSVR pack

    Saw the link and thought "goody, been a little while since I watched a live stream of gaming news"... balls!

    I would love them to announce PSVR for $699 to gasps from the crowd; then say the pack will contain the headset, camera, Move controller and PS4 - mike drop moment

    If they manage somehow to make it $299, I might even bite.

    I think we will see the PSVR unit under $399. And a bundle with the camera,2x motion controllers, PSVR and a game for $400-$499.

    I don't recall if they streamed when showing the PSVR back in 2014 at GDC. But they did upload it after. If anyone want watch it again here it is :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWMp_o03qH4

    @Malek86I think we will get a price and date. Everyone is waiting for it, and now is a good time to make a move.

    A couple thoughts about the press-only nature:1. If the price/release news is neutral or negative, might be wise they're not having another "599 US Dollars" moment.2. Maybe more outlets will cover the news (for instance via liveblogs like this) given there's no official stream?
    kiki1980 2 years ago
    I think they'll announce date and price at E3
    Malek86 2 years ago
    If this is behind closed doors, I get the feeling we won't actually hear the price today. Maybe they'll announce it during GDC instead.

    So there's definitely nowhere to actually see this? Not on PS4 or PlayStation.com or something?
    _LarZen_ 2 years ago
    Don't you think it's strange that it's behind "closed doors?". If they are going to show some new content and finally say the date and price wouldn't it be beneficial for Sony and PlayStation for fans around the world to see it?
