The PlayStation VR headset lands in October 2016 for $400 (€400 / £350 / ¥44,980), Sony announced at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco today. Note that this price does not include Move controllers nor the PlayStation Camera, which is essential for the system's positional tracking capabilities.

PS VR, originally called Project Morpheus, is Sony's answer to the current rush of virtual reality hardware heading to the gaming market. It's exclusive to the PlayStation 4 console -- and it has a fairly strong install base, considering Sony has sold 36 million PS4 units since the console's launch in 2013.

There are more than 230 developers creating content for PS VR, Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Andrew House announced at today's event. Sony expects roughly 50 games to launch alongside PS VR. Additionally, EA, Lucasfilm and DICE are creating a Star Wars: Battlefront experience for Sony's system.

The final, consumer version of PS VR includes an OLED display, 5.7-inch screen, 1920x1080 resolution, 360 degree tracking and latency of less than 18ms. Plus, it supports 3D audio.
