According to VRSE, a company that creates VR content proposed that we would be able to seeing the PlayStation VR as soon as May 2016, which got everybody excited. Moreover, the ‘leak’ fell into Sony’s “First half of 2016” release date window publicized in 2015, creating it that little bit more believable. A US retailer GameSpot then splashed in, claiming that we will not actually be getting the virtual reality headset manufactured by Sony until autumn of the year 2016. While numerous initially brushed the rumor aside, it seems that the company was right.
A PlayStation VR-themed event held by Sony on 15 March during GDC of 2016 (Game Developers Conference) and while many expected the firm would talk regarding the VR projects in the pipeline, that was not the case. In fact, Sony CEO Andrew House walked out and pronounced that the PlayStation VR headset will be available to purchase in UAE and UK from October 2016. An October 2016 launch puts the PlayStation VR 6 months behind the HTC Vive Pre and Oculus Rift, arguably the biggest VR rivals of Sony.
