2016 looks like the year that virtual reality gaming will actually break into the larger market. After years of news about headsets being in development, Sony’s announcement that they’ll be releasing a PlayStation VR headset means we’ll actually start seeing them in living rooms instead of just in the headlines.

Playstation has gone to lengths to make sure there will be a wide variety of games that users can play with this headset. Slated for release in October, this new piece of tech has been in the hands of more than 230 developers. The crew has been busy working on at least 50 games, all of which will be ready for launch at the end of the year. According to Sony, the developers they are working with range from big studios to smaller independent publishers. PlayStation even has their own studio working on a free set of games that owners can download at launch. The PlayStation VR will retail for around $400.
