Along with announcing the price and release window for PlayStation VR on stage at GDC today, Sony also confirmed a big feature for the virtual reality headset: Cinematic Mode.
PlayStation VR will not only work with virtual reality games, but will also allow you to play the rest of your PS4 library, turning the view of the headset into a full immerse theater for your games. The giant virtual screen will have three different levels of zoom, and promises to be an unparalleled way to experience content.
Better yet, the majority of the PS4’s normal functions can then also be conducted through the VR headset, including watching movies and Netflix.
Releasing this October, PlayStation VR has been priced at $399 and is set to receive 50 games between its launch and the end of the year. When it comes to exactly what all those games are, we will just have to wait and see. As we learn more about the headset, including its launch line-up, pre-order availability, and firm release date, you’ll find it all right here on Gamespresso.
Are you already fanaticizing about playing Uncharted 4 in a full virtual reality cinema like we are? Or is $399 still too high of a price point for you that not even Cinematic Mode can win you over? Let us know in the comments.
