PlayStation VR launches on October 13. Launch line up confirmed and other details

Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe has confirmed the launch line up for PlayStation VR, as well as revealing that the release date for the UK is October 13, the same day as in the US.

Launch territories for wave one include: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom.

"PlayStation VR is a virtual reality system that takes PS4 to the next level of immersion," said Jim Ryan, President of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe. "With the launch of PS VR on the horizon, we are looking forward to showing consumers that innovation has never been stronger at PlayStation as we offer unique experiences that truly embody VR's potential."

PlayStation VR is £349 in the UK, although ShopTo also carries a bundle which includes the PlayStation Camera, an accessory that is needed for PlayStation VR to function properly.

Here's a list of the games for 2016, both at launch and beyond. There are likely a lot more to be confirmed, so we'll keep you updated.

Sony has confirmed the following first party titles for launch, although some third party titles will also be available:

- Rigs - EUR 59.99 (GBP 49.99)
- VR Worlds - EUR 39.99 (GBP 29.99)

- Tumble VR - EUR 9.99

Expected Third Party Titles at launch:

Of course PlayStation VR also includes a Virtual Cinema mode. The idea behind this is to allow you to view all your PlayStation 4 games and video content on a virtual reality cinema screen, further putting the use of the PlayStation VR HMD to its fullest potential. What this means is that you will view standard games and video on up to three screen sizes. The biggest of the three sizes compares to that of an IMAX screen, while the other two sizes are smaller, depending on your preference.

You can either view these games in a static state, or if you like, have the option to move your head around this virtual cinema. If the user presses the option button, it then re-centres.

The PlayStation Virtual Cinema app will be available at the launch of the PlayStation VR.
