The world of virtual reality is about to get a new, real-life version.
It’s coming to PlayStation VR.
The new PlayStation VR headset will be the first PlayStation VR-enabled device to ship to the US, but it’ll likely be the last, according to a report by Bloomberg.
Bloomberg says that Sony is preparing to ship the PSVR to the rest of the world sometime in October 2018, and that it will likely arrive at retailers at the same time.
That means it will arrive at launch, and then the first of many PSVR releases to come.
PSVR launches in 2018The PSVR has already proven to be a big hit in Japan.
The headset is expected to sell over 1.6 million units in its first year in the market, with over one million of those being sold in Japan alone.
Sony has been working on making the headset available to the West for a few months, and it seems likely that we’ll see the first release in the US in the first half of 2018.
It might not be the exact same hardware as the original PSVR, but the PS4 version will likely have similar features, including an improved, dual-core CPU.
That might make it easier to integrate into existing games, though, and make it a much more useful VR headset than the current PlayStation VR hardware.
Bloomberg also claims that the PS VR’s price will drop by 25 percent when it goes on sale in the United States.
It will be cheaper than the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions, which are currently priced at $399 and $399, respectively.
That could be a huge deal for people who already have the PS3 versions of its content.
PS4 and Xbox Live Gold subscribers will also get the PSVita version, but that will only be available to those who bought the PS5 and PS6 versions of the headset earlier in the year.
PlayStation VR has some big competitors It seems unlikely that Sony will be able to keep up with demand for its new console, though.
Last year, Sony announced that it would no longer sell PlayStation VR, citing “unreliable supply and demand.”
That was a blow for the PS2, which has sold nearly one million units since its debut.
However, Sony was able to retain a loyal following of gamers who bought its original PlayStation VR headsets.
Those who bought them later in the decade will likely continue to get PSVR versions of games like Uncharted: The Lost Legacy and The Last Guardian, as well as other PlayStation VR titles.
Sony’s decision could mean that there’s less room for VR-specific hardware like the Oculus Rift, which is available for $3,500 and was released last year, or Valve’s SteamVR, which costs $1,500 for a single-player experience and is available to download and play for free.
