PlayStation VR "isn’t quite as high-end," as Oculus Rift, says Palmer Luckey


Oculus boss Palmer Luckey has said that PlayStation VR "isn’t quite as high-end," as Oculus Rift.

Speaking to IB times, Luckey said that while the PS VR isn't quite as top notch, nor is the PS4 as powerful as a high-end PC, he still thinks that PlayStation VR is "a good headset."


"I think that there’s not many people who already own a PS4 who don’t own a gaming PC who are going to go out and make that roughly $1,500 all-in investment in the Rift. It really is a separate market. They’re bringing virtual reality to a different group of people who I don’t think were ever really a part of our market anyway.”

It was suggested lately that PS VR could retail for as high as $800, although that seems very unlikely.

So the guy in charge of the Rift is saying bad things about PSVR becuase of the responses they have received on their product - predictable. The thing is though - Nvidia say ther are about 13m people out there with the required Specs for the Rift. there are 38m PS4 owners, all with the capability of using PSVR. So if he is right - and the majority of PS4 people have a beefy PC as well, then isn't he saying he doesn't expect it to sell very well at all?

I reckon the PSVR will be about £300 but then you have to spend 44 on the camera if you don't have it as well. Will be interesting to see the 2 in comparison later this year - but i'm still not won over by it as I don't think too many 'big' games will fully support it.

True or not, who would listen to the leader of the opposition?
