At the moment, hundreds of game developers are creating and perfecting new VR titles for PlayStation VR and it is possible that by October, more than a hundred titles will be available for purchase.

You will also be able to sync your PlayStation VR with the PlayStation 4 platform to enjoy rich and amazing gaming experiences. In comparison, HTC Vive and Oculus Rift will require high-end computers which will cost a lot more than PlayStation 4 does.
