HTC exec: PSVR price is 'economical', but 'misleading' |

VR Focus reports from a Spanish blog that Graylin, the head of the Chinese VR division of HTC said: "The price set by Sony for PlayStation VR, 399 euros, may seem economical for users but is misleading". What does Graylin mean? Well, the base price of the PlayStation VR only includes the HMD itself, and not the PS4 camera or the PlayStation Move. Some retailers will do bundles, but Sony itself isn't for its $399 price.
