Well Playstation has sunk a lot of money into its development. I'm sure they are just trying to open the flood gates to see if it will motivate some more purchases of VR equipment, but it's all just way too damn expensive for the average individual.
VR is extremely fun with motion controls that allow you to interact with the environment...but it takes a lot more work than standard gaming, and I'd much rather have a large, 4K display hooked to my PS or computer, than use VR goggles with a controller.
I hate to say it, but for gaming it is a gimmick. Gaming drove the invention of VR, but if application and ongoing development continue with VR 10 years from now, it won't be for gaming purposes.
I honestly think that VR is just the stopgap for excellent AR technology, which has much more value and many more possibilities than VR.
