The PlayStation 4's virtual reality headset, dubbed "PlayStation VR," finally has a release date.
When's it coming out? Sony revealed on Tuesday that PlayStation VR will launch in October 2016.
This has been a long time coming - nearly six years! PlayStation VR debuted as "Project Morpheus," a VR headset project, back in March 2014. At the time, the headset had been in the works at Sony since 2010.
Its creation is a collaboration between several different departments at Sony's PlayStation arm: Magic Lab, based in California, Studio Liverpool, based in England, and Sony's Japan Studio, based in Japan.
In addition to the headset, PlayStation VR users can also bring their hands into whatever game they're playing by using the PlayStation Move controller peripherals.
The PlayStation VR headset isn't just a standalone unit - you'll need a PlayStation 4, a PlayStation Camera, and a decent chunk of free living room space to make PlayStation VR a reality in your home.
The headset works by plugging in to a "breakout box," a small black box that connects to your PlayStation 4, which splits the video signal from the headset to your television. That way you can see what the person in PlayStation VR sees - in the case of some games, what you see on-screen is something totally different.
When you take home PlayStation VR later this year, it'll cost $400. That's for the headset itself and the various wires you'll need to hook it up; it looks like the PlayStation Camera (which you'll need for tracking) is being sold separately. We're asking Sony.
In the meantime, Sony also released a video breaking down the price and release date news, which you can see right here:
