It's a truth universally acknowledged that Sony doesn't like the holidays – after all, when's the last time it released a major game in October or November? Exactly. And now it looks like its hardware is set to share the same fate; while the PlayStation 4 Pro is still very much on track for 10th November, the manufacturer's Platinum Headset has been pushed into January.

This is the next evolution of the platform holder's uber-popular Gold Headset, promising simulated 7.1 sound and beastly 3D audio for PlayStation VR. We haven't tried these yet, but they were on display at EGX 2016 earlier in the year, and they look absolutely stunning in person. They should, too – they're retailing for a not-so cheap £129.99/$159.99!
