Sony was showing off the headset at CES 2014, which had an important new feature: head tracking. Sony had a sign at its booth at the trade show, calling it a "technical prototype" and had representatives on-hand to help people in and out of the headset. The model without head-tracking already costs $999, and the experience on Sony's device is said to be far less than that on the Oculus Rift.
