Developers believe that PlayStation VR will lead premium VR market. A low price point and requirements are believed to be some strong points that Sony offers.

Read why PlayStation VR will lead VR Market

Oculus Rift and HTC Vive are the more powerful VR options for virtual reality, and both have already launched for consumers. PlayStation VR is the cheaper option that releases in a few weeks, but developers have said that it’s this low price point that will keep PlayStation VR ahead of its competitors. Not only is the price of the headset lower than the Rift and the Vive, but the machine needed to run PSVR is markedly less expensive than what the other two require. The PSVR headset costs $399, and the standard PS4 needed to run PSVR costs $299.

CEO of nDreams, Patrick O’Luanaigh told MCV UK that PlayStation has the cornerstone on a simple VR setup.

We’re very bullish about PSVR. Sony has created a supremely comfortable headset and is launching it at a great price. The 40 million plus PS4 owners don’t require any additional hardware – just plug in the headset and camera and it just works. PSVR will sell extremely well.

Untold Games CEO Flavio Parenti added that he believes PSVR will become the VR standard for future titles.

We expect PlayStation VR to be a market leader. We don’t know how big the market is or how big PSVR will be, but the sweet deal that Sony is giving to the players is amazing. For just half the price of the others you get everything. Developers will aim for PSVR standards, and then adapt games to PC if PSVR is the market leader.

We’re just a few weeks away from seeing if these predictions will come true. PlayStation VR will release on October 13, 2016.
