If you’ve been holding off on buying a PlayStation VR, now is a good opportunity to pick one up. Sony has announced it is dropping the price of some PSVR bundles in the US and Europe, allowing you to get the headset along with a game and some accessories for relatively cheap.
Beginning tomorrow, March 29, Sony is reducing the price of its PSVR bundles in the US by a whopping $100. That includes the Doom VFR and Skyrim VR bundles for PS4. The former will now run for $300, while the latter will be available for slightly more, retailing for $350.
In addition to the PSVR headset, the Doom VFR bundle includes a copy of the game, a PlayStation Camera, and the updated PSVR demo disc. The Skyrim VR bundle comes with the PSVR headset, a PlayStation Camera, two PS Move controllers, the PSVR demo disc, and a copy of Skyrim VR with all of its DLC expansions: Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn.
The price drop applies to all non-retailer exclusive PSVR bundles and, unlike Sony’s recent limited-time promotion, will be the standard price of the packages going forward. If you’re considering getting either of the aforementioned bundles, you can read more about their accompanying games in our Doom VFR review and thoughts on Skyrim VR.
PS4 owners in Europe will have a chance to get a PSVR for cheap as well. Also beginning March 29, Sony will reduce the price of the PSVR Starter Pack in Europe, dropping it to €300 / £262.87. The Starter Pack includes a PSVR headset, PlayStation Camera, and a digital copy of PlayStation VR Worlds.
This would be a good time to pick up a PSVR, particularly if you’re also a PS Plus subscriber. April’s lineup of free PS Plus games includes TrackMania Turbo, which features a VR mode. Sony has also just added PSVR support to Wipeout: Omega Collection in a free update. Additionally, the adorable VR adventure game Moss recently arrived on PS4 and was very well-received by critics.
