Grab PSVR For Just $149.99 Right Now

Sony’s PlayStation VR (PSVR) headset just hit its lowest price yet, but act quickly if you want to score one.

Monoprice is currently selling the standalone PSVR unit, which includes just the base headset, for $199.99. Better yet, though, you can enter the code 50MASTER at the checkout to get $50 off of that price tag (we’ve confirmed that works), taking it down to just $149.99, easily the lowest price we’ve seen for the hardware yet.

Take note, though, that this is the first generation PSVR headset thus this is very likely a clearance sale that will be up once stock is out. The first generation model delivers largely the exact same experience that the newer model, which launched late last year, does. The only improvements Sony made to the device were minor ergonomic refinements and the ability to play high-dynamic range 2D games on your normal display with PSVR still plugged in (in the model on offer here you’ll have to switch around HDMI cables to access HDR content).

That said, it’s worth pointing out that this model also doesn’t include the PlayStation Camera that’s absolutely essential to track your head inside VR (you can’t use PSVR without one). They currently go for over $50 on Amazon so if you haven’t got one yet you’re still looking at paying just over $200 for a headset, but that’s a great price all the same. Note that you’ll likely want two PlayStation Move controllers and, oh, a game or two as well.

    Dead, but a good deal nonetheless.

    It was not the revised HDR passthrough model w/ redesigned button position and better integrated headphones.

    nah, sold mine already (and my vive) why buy again?

    Am more than happy with my rift. It sh*ts all over psvr and vive from a great (virtual) height. No lie, no bias, had em all.

    Until gen 2, get rift or get TFO


      Did you hear about the Vive Pro and the Vive’s Wireless adapter that are coming out? Vive might have a better device earlier than gen 2, though Rift could make an upgrade too. Personally I don’t know much about Rift/Vive cause I’m a console gamer and use PSVR (so I know first hand PSVR is just under what it should be in every area.. visuals, tracking, controls), but I’m excited to watch how Vive and Rift improve because that may influence PSVR2

      Vive Pro resolution is 1600 x 2880 (78% higher than current Rift/Vive) and adds some nice integrated headphones with 3D spatial audio and dual microphones with active noise cancellation,, plus it has been redesigned to be more comfortable and easy to use.. but that takes trying out to know if they get it right.
