PS:VR rumoured at £550 - how much will your new VR headset cost?

Inside: we take wild guesses, hope something sticks

Product: PlayStation VR | Developer: Sony | Manufacturer: Sony Mobile Communications

Oculus just this week came out with a price of £499 and now it seems like Amazon might have revealed a price for the PS:VR too.

It's not pretty.

The Express has it down as $1,125.35 in Canadian, coming out to around £550 in the queen's currency. This seems impossibly high. Now that price rumours are all over the place, we thought the time was right here at PG to give you the only predictions you've ever needed.

Using the power of science and Skype we put our heads together to come up with our own guesses at what prices you can expect to pay for the PS:VR and HTC Vive with absolutely no hard information behind it.

We call it: The Pocket Calculator

Some information to consider beforehand though - It's likely that Sony's will be the cheapest of the lot for just the head mounted display - Sony have total control over what's sold on their platform so they can afford to loss-lead a little with the hardware because they'll make the money back on games.

The Vive will probably be the most expensive because it's coming with controllers and extra sensors that go around your room. There's a chance HTC will ask Steam to subsidise the headsets but it seems unlikely that Steam will as it's always been marketed as the top end luxury VR headset.

Anyway, to the Pocket Calculator. What do we all think?

Mark Brown - Editor, Pocket Gamer: Vive £700, PSVR £350

Alysia Judge - Editor, AppSpy: Vive £500, PSVR £350

Glen Fox - Editor, 148 Apps: Vive £500, PS:VR £250

Harry Slater - Reviews Editor, Pocket Gamer: Vive £400, PS:VR: £350

Chris James - Big Boss, Steel Media: Vive £600, PS:VR £400

Jake Tucker - VR Editor, Pocket Gamer: Vive £700, PS:VR £350

Based on our in no way logical wild guesses, we can tell you with 0% certainty that a PS:VR will set you back £350 and the Vive will cost either £500 or £700. There you have it.
