It seems Sony is finally getting into gear to reveal a release date for the PlayStation VR now that both the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive virtual reality headsets have been revealed with set pre-order dates.

Sony has revealed that next month at the annual Game Developer Conference, which will take place from March 14-18, that the company will hold a press event for the virtual reality headset on March 15. The event will kick off with a presentation focusing on the headset device at 2:00 p.m. PT, following a hands-on demo which will last until 6:00 p.m. PT.

Sony has only said that the PlayStation VR would see a release in the "first half of 2016," but it seems very likely that this event will be about a solid release date and final price.

Recently the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive have been revealed with some fairly steep price point; $599 and $799, respectively. Plus the headsets need to be paired with powerful PCs. While the PlayStation VR will work with the PS4. In this instance Sony can definitely undercut its competition on retail price.

According to Gamezone, a Sony representative there are rumors that the headself itself will cost only $299 but it will not include the camera or PlayStation Move controllers. The representative went on to say that Sony is considering selling an additional VR kit which bundles the camera, PS Move Controllers and games for $129. Combined with the kit and headset Sony is still cheaper than its competition coming in at a total of $428.
