PlayStation VR requires additional $60 camera to function

Sony left a small detail out of the PlayStation VR announcement

Sony announced the PlayStation VR virtual reality platform will launch for the PlayStation 4 this October for $399, but neglected to mention that the hardware requires the purchase of the $60 PlayStation 4 camera to function.

Sony has confirmed to Polygon that the camera is required for the virtual reality headset to function, but said the camera is not included in the $399 package because many customers already own the accessory. The camera provides positional tracking for the headset.
