    Seeing as how none of the big competitors in VR have officially released priceing lets try to speculate what we think it will be and reasoning behind it.

    As I said this is pure speculation.

    PS VR $399
    I suspect the PlayStation VR will also include 2 move controllers and the PS eye camera. Sony has also hinted at pricing comparable to consoles.

    Steam VR - HTC Vive $599
    I suspect it comes with the VR headset, 2 Base stations and 2 controllers

    Oculus Rift $499
    Headset with built in spoeakers, IR sensor and XB1 controller.

    The PlayStation VR will come in at a lower price point of $299 but won't have the controller packed in.

    The Steam VR and Oculus Rift could easily have everything youve listed but will come in at lower price point.

    Steam VR $499

    Rift $399

    Budget build of $861 + $599 for the Rift = $1460

    Oculus has been saying $1500 all in for the Rift experience since May of 2015

    We should have seen this coming.

    Higher than I was expecting. I'm interested to see what HTC does now.
