I'm still betting on $399. They said it would be the price of a console about, so I really don't see them making it more expensive than the PS4 was at launch

The Rift was also 499.- on several Swiss sites before the offical price was announced, so this is useless.

$299 isn't realistic...$399 or even $449 would be enough to entice the early adopter demo. There's no way they'll come in at $299, but I agree these "leaked" prices seem too high.

Yep, until there an official price, all these pre-orders prices tend to be bogus.

I won't be buying PSVR until many months down the line, so I'm Ok with this (if true).

For the record, I reckon PSVR will be in the ballpark (lol) of $400 CAD, $350 USD.

Wow, yeah.... It will be $299 in a few years. Regarding the price listing, I see $499 being realistic. As much money as Sony is earning off their PS4 ecosystem they still are in no position to bleed money on VR. I'm not sure if they can break even at $399 but then again I don't know the pricing of the tech parts they're using and how that all works out. I am sure that they're not going to sell it at a loss. $499 w/ a game and the Move controller setup is going to be my guess. Key point to remember was when Shu said they weren't going to profit off this thing and normally you would say that to justify your pricing which tells me, it ain't going to be cheap.

The PS3, a console sold by Sony, launched at $499 and $599. And 450-500 is "about" 399, depending on how you look at it...

I'm betting €399/£350, dropping to €299/£250 for Christmas, along with a €599/£500 bundle with a PS4, some games and all the other stuff it'll require.

As long as it's cheaper than the PC headsets, that's all it needs for an edge with early adopters, but come the Christmas rush and its bargain hunters, then it'll need to be as cheap as it can be to get some market penetration.

Yeah, this kind of thing is normal for any big awaited console/accessory. We need to wait for official pricing.

Preorders are always high, because if they set the price low and the price turns out higher, the site will lose out. Easier for them to pick a high number and then reduce it when they have the real price.
We've known this since the dawn of internet shopping, but here we are in 2016 with a thread about a preorder price....

It is going to be a hard sell to market a peripheral which is more expensive than the console required to run it.

Rift/Valve do not have this problem. Sony do.

Exactly. This is an enthusiast product, at least for now, being targeted at the enthusiast market. This is for those million or two people who camped out in the snow to get their PS4 on day one. The technology just has not matured to the point where they can get it out to the mass market. I mean, they're still trying to figure out how to make games for the damn thing.

PS4 + PSVR < Oculus PC or Vive PC by several hundred dollars. That wasn't so hard now was it?

Yes. And this is how the software developers/publishers will also treat it without an established install base. For this to build any traction someone has to make a leap of faith or to take a hit. If Sony price the PSVR headset too high it is dead after the enthusiasts buy it.

At that price point it isn't for the 1-2m people who camped out for a PS4.

I think Sony knocks it out the park at $299. $399 is what I expect and anything over is DOA. At $299 they can have one of those PS4 price announcement moments.

I would imagine if they go $299 they also have a bundle including a PS4, PSVR, 2 Moves, DS4, camera and game for the "price of the rift" $599. I think that could be huge.
