PlayStation VR Will “Dominate” VR Battle Says Analyst
PlayStation VR is in a great position to win the VR sales battle, industry analyst Michael Pachter has argued in the wake of the HTC Vive’s price announcement.
Wow, Vive priced at $800. This sets Oculus up to win at $600, and sets Sony up to dominate if they have the ability to price sub $500

Along with the price advantage that PlayStation VR is likely to have (though Sony is yet to make an official announcement on that front), PlayStation VR enjoys the advantage of not requiring a powerful and expensive PC to run alongside the expensive VR hardware itself.
Does that mean it will automatically be a success? Of course not, but we certainly agree with the argument that it is in a great position.
