PlayStation VR is Sony’s contribution to the growing VR market, which currently consists of the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. What differentiates the PSVR from the others is that it runs via the PlayStation 4 rather than a very powerful computer, making it a more affordable headset to consumers.

Oculus Rift

The Oculus Rift is the first VR headset widely available to the public and was commercially released in March 2016. Interestingly, the project started out as a KickStarter crowd-funder campaign in 2012.

The campaign went on to raise $2.5 million for the development of the VR headset, with Facebook buying the company only two years later for $2 billion. The idea of the kickstarter was to send the headset out to developers for free reign in developing games for the system and would be sent a developer’s kit if donating $300 or more.
