Background & Identification ¶ 

The PlayStation VR is Sony's answer to virtual reality gaming. Released on October 13, 2016, the PS VR offers a 5.7 inch OLED display supporting 1080p resolution and 100º field of view.

Unlike other VR devices, the PlayStation VR uses full RGB sub-pixels in a display known as 1920 x RGB x 1080 (1920 Red, Green, and Blue subpixels for every 1080 lines of pixels). This creates a clearer and more immersive display for the user.

The PS VR sells for $399, making it cheaper than both the HTC Vive ($800) and the Oculus Rift ($600). The PS VR does require a PlayStation camera in addition to the PlayStation 4.
