Sony has recently released details regarding the package appearance of PS4 video games that will feature compatibility with the PlayStation VR headset. This information will undoubtedly help the customers purchasing the games at local retail stores.
Video games that will strictly require the PlayStation VR headset in order to be fully operable will arrive with “PlayStation VR Required” label, along with a helpful “You’ll Need These” notice paired with the hardware image. European boxes will be labeled a bit differently, using the “PlayStation VR Required” banner instead of “PlayStation VR Game”.
In both markets, video games that will support the PlayStation VR headset, but won’t strictly require one will appear within ”PlayStation VR Compatible” labeled boxes.
From what we know of Gran Turismo Sport, it should arrive with the second banner. Kazunori Yamauchi has mentioned the upcoming sim racer will feature support for the headset on numerous occasions, including as recently as E3 last month.
PlayStation VR is scheduled for release on October 13th. The retail price is set at $399/€399. It will be possible to order a starter bundle for $500, which will feature a PlayStation VR headset, two Move controllers and a PlayStation camera. If you happen to reside in Canada or the USA, you can search for local shops that are demoing the product this summer, and run a test trial of the headset for yourself.
