A little earlier this week we told you about The Martian VR Experience that’s coming to PSVR this month. At the time of publishing that particular article, there wasn’t any set release date or pricing information

Today, FOX has announced that The Martian VR Experience will release on PSVR and other VR platforms tomorrow – November 15th – and it won’t be cheap.

We assumed this would be a cheerful little freebie, though according to FOX it’ll be a paid experience: $19.99. There’s no word on the UK/EU pricing at the moment, though we have enquired to the relevant people.

We’re not sure what to make of this one; on one hand, why should we get stuff for free? Just because we’re awesome doesn’t cut it, but if it turns out to be a very limited “experience” that offers less value than the cost of going out and buy the DVD/Blu-Ray of the film, we can’t see many being all too pleased.

We’ll do our best to get hands on with The Martian for PSVR as soon as we can to let you know if it’s something worth sinking money into.

    This is way overpriced! It’s already out on Oculus and Vive and will last only 20-30 minutes. I love PS VR but am afraid that the current pricing tactics is going to kill the platform. People already spent € 350 on a PS4 + € 400 on Playstation VR (+ €80 on the optional move controllers) and then they’ll ask $20 on a 30 minute experience :S. Same with Robinson: The Journey. It’s a good game but in Europe you’ll pay € 60 for a 3 hour game. That’s ridiculous

      They know that they have PSVR players by the nuts… But yeah, this kind of price gouging isn’t going to do the platform any favours in the long run
