Sony’s foray into the world of Virtual Reality is almost here! The cheapest of the main virtual reality headsets, the PlayStation VR will be available starting October 13 for $400. Those looking to pick one up will need to be wary of a few setup requirements, including 60 sq. feet of space and the PS4 camera, among other things.
