It’s been an exciting week during GDC for PlayStation VR fans as the veil has been lifted. With the price at $399 for the core PlayStation VR package, the PSVR launch bundle will retail at $499. If you’re currently without a PS4 camera and a pair of PlayStation Move controllers, you’re in luck. On Tuesday, March 22nd, at 7:00 a.m. PT you’ll be able to pre-order the PlayStation VR Launch Bundle at certain retailers.
Here’s what’s in the exclusive bundle in limited quantities:
- PlayStation VR core bundle:
- PS VR headset
- PS VR cables
- Stereo Headphones
- PlayStation VR Demo Disc
- PlayStation Camera
- 2 PlayStation Move motion controllers
- PlayStation VR Worlds (disc)
With everything you need all in on setting including PlayStation VR Worlds, you definitely want to grab the bundle ASAP. PSVR Worlds is a premier launch game that has a little bit of everything with five games in one. The launch bundle will also be available in Canada for $699.99 CAD. Regarding the total amount of PlayStation VR units in stock, it will vary with each retailer but there are shipment waves planned. The next batch of pre-orders will happen this summer.
PlayStation VR Core Bundle Preorders Coming Soon
At this present time there isn’t a set launch for PlayStation VR core bundle preorders, but they will happen. PlayStation VR requires the PS4 camera to function, and while one could use a Dualshock 4, the best experience many would argue will be with Move controllers. For first time users experiencing this new way of gaming, it will make the best impression. Those of you who already have PlayStation Move controllers and especially PS4 cameras are all set. We’ll let you know when the PlayStation VR core bundle preorders are available in the near future.
Again, it’s best to pre-order the PlayStation VR as soon as you can. We’re predicting it will be more challenging to get a PSVR unit near it’s launch window of October 2016. Let us know your thoughts so far and what you’d like to see happen with the new platform. We’ll give you the update on pre-ordering next week here at PlayStation4VR.
Update: Due to enthusiastic fans, both PlayStation VR bundles will be available for preorder on March 22nd!
