With virtual reality heating up in 2016, Sony this week revealed more about its plans to come out with its own VR headset.

The PlayStation VR, which will cost $399 and come out in October, will hit the market later than VR headsets from HTC and Facebook's Oculus. But folks may think the wait is worth it. While the other headsets need a pricey desktop computer to work, the PlayStation headset can be used on the PlayStation 4 gaming console, a device millions of folks already have, so the PlayStation VR might prove a more popular option.

We also talk about Instagram's new plans to switch to a curated feed, with the social network surfacing pictures it thinks will be more relevant to you. Last, we discuss a movie called "Hardcore Henry," which is getting some notice at the South By Southwest festival. The flick was shot in first-person with a GoPro camera.

The 3:59 gives you bite-size news and analysis about the top stories of the day, brought to you by CNET Executive Editor Roger Cheng and CNET Senior Writer Ben Fox Rubin.
