Retail PlayStation VR Will Come With A Wii-Sized Processing Box

The PlayStation VR is attractive, both in looks and what it can offer.

Though many game developers are already endorsing the well-known Oculus Rift, Sony’s influence on the industry is sure to attract several studios into developing a title specifically for their headset.

In an interesting hands-on experience by Polygon, the site reported that the final consumer version of the PlayStation VR will actually have a separate processing unit. This processing unit will be slightly smaller than Nintendo’s Wii console.

While the original Wii isn’t exactly a huge console, it still has a size that needs a decent amount of space. The box is supposed to sit between the headset and the PS4 console, so there’s also that bit you need to take into consideration.

The PlayStation VR will ship with the headset and the box together. While it’s not necessarily a deal-breaker, it is a small inconvenience in a time when design minimalism is encouraged in technology.

Sony has yet to offer any kind of solid price range for its device, but has said on several occasions that it plans to launch the virtual reality device in the first half of the 2016. This target has been likely set to compete against Oculus Rift, which has been in development for much longer, and as a result has an arguably larger following.
