Sony has announced that the PlayStation VR will be available starting in October and will retail for $399 / £349 / 399€ / ¥44,980.
For that price you will get the headset, headphones, cables and an external processing that will plug into your PlayStation 4. What it doesn’t include which you will need is the PlayStation Camera and that will be available separately.
Also, it of course goes without saying that you will need to own a PlayStation 4 itself to use the PlayStation VR.

The announcement came from Sony at GDC where Sony confirmed that there were already 203 developers working on content for the device. They also confirmed that they expect 50 games to release between launch and the end of 2016.
One of those games is a special PlayStation VR version of DICE’s Star Wars: Battlefront.
The PlayStation VR will sport a 5.7″ OLED screen at a resolution of 1920 x RGB x 1080 ( 960 x RGB x 1080 for each eye). With a field of view of approximately 100 degrees, it is supported by nine motion-tracking LEDs allowing for full 360 degree movement.
