Sony has announced the pricing and availability for its PlayStation VR, although it left out one important caveat: you’re going to need to purchase a $60 PlayStation 4 camera in order for it to function.
The reason why Sony decided to omit this piece of info is because the company considers many of its customers to already own the accessory. Because of that, Sony isn’t bundling the camera with its PlayStation VR headset.
The PlayStation 4 camera has been available since the launch of the console, but if you plan on enjoying your PlayStation VR experience in any way, you’re going to need to own one of them. The reason for this is due to the fact the camera provides positional tracking for the headset. If you don’t own one, then you’ll be missing a vital piece of the VR puzzle.
