Dreams of more accessible VR gear are now a reality. Today, Mary Yee, the Vice President of PlayStation Marketing, announced that a brand-new PlayStation VR bundle is launching soon for users in the United States and Canada. The good news doesn’t end there, as the existing PlayStation VR Worlds bundle is getting a sizable pricing cut, and will hit the market at its new lower cost in just a few days.
Yee broke the news in an official blog post on the PlayStation U.S. site, first covering the new system collection that includes the PlayStation VR headset and PlayStation Camera. American and Canadian users can call it theirs for $399 USD / $499 CAD, respectively. Based on the facts and figures, the cost of the new bundle essentially grants players the PlayStation Camera at no additional charge. Yee also confirmed that this will be the core PS VR bundle moving forward, and will be available for purchase on September 1.
The second portion of Yee’s announcement focuses on the already released PlayStation VR Worlds bundle, which includes the PS VR headset, PS Camera, two PlayStation Move motion controllers, and PlayStation VR Worlds, one of the system’s launch titles. The bundle will now sell for $449 USD / $579 CAD, down $50 from its original market retail price. According to the blog post, this decision was likely made to allow users to dive into the world of virtual reality with an all-inclusive PS VR package at a more affordable price. Like the new PS VR bundle, the cost-cut PS VR Worlds one will arrive at retailers on September 1.
Lastly, those wanting to get stuck in the alien-filled world of Farpoint, they can pick up the exclusive Farpoint PS VR Aim Controller bundle, which is back in stock right now.
Now, more than ever, seems like the right time to get into virtual reality gameplay, especially with the PlayStation VR system, which touts a massive lineup of over 100 games. Titles like Tiny Trax, Dino Frontier, Arizona Sunshine, and SUPERHOT VR have recently joined big-brand, marquee titles such as Star Trek: Bridge Crew, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, and Batman: Arkham VR. The system’s game portfolio promises to grow larger in the coming months, with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR, Doom VFR, Sparc, Bravo Team, The Inpatient, and even Fallout 4 for the PS VR lingering on the horizon.
PlayStation VR is available now.
