Yesterday Sony announced to the world at E3 their plans for the year ahead and what is soon to be released. The presenter explained that the Sony VR will be available to the public on October 13th 2016 to accompany the processing power of the (over 40 million units sold worldwide) PS4.
Over 50 games will be released on VR upon launch in October up until the end of 2016.
These will include some of their biggest franchises along with future favourites that will be born from PS VR…
The PlayStation VR will be priced at $399 USD, which is quite steep when you consider that it is an add-on for a console
FULL PS VR Experience followed the opening sequence of demos…
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
This will be available 24 Jan 2017 and will be in VR from beginning to end.
Which looks like a cross between Gears of War and Halo if the reveal is anything to go by.

I do not think this needs to be explained in any way; you are in an x-wing, in virtual reality, nuff said!
