Sony Admits Oculus Is Better Than PlayStation VR

This makes for a catchy headline, but the company’s confession comes as no surprise. PlayStation VR is expected to cost a couple hundred less than the Rift and the Vive, both of which require high-end gaming PCs.

"If you just talk about the high-end quality, yes, I would admit that Oculus may have better VR," Ito said. "However, it requires a very expensive and very fast PC." It could be perceived as a damning statement, but it's true. If you look at the specification sheets provided by Oculus and HTC, both companies require an Intel i5 processor or greater, an NVIDIA GTX 970 graphics card as the bare minimum and at least 4GB of RAM. While you can mix up parts and and build your own rig with the very lowest specifications to save money, you're not going to get much change out of $1,000 for a decent PC.
