Sony’s PlayStation VR (PSVR) is now available for a lot less.
The PS4-based VR headset has had an official price drop in both the US and EU, that comes into effect tomorrow. For the former, the price of the Doom VFR bundle (originally priced at $399.99) has been cut to $299.99. Aside from a PS4 itself this includes all you need to jump into VR, like the headset itself and the camera to track it. As the name suggests, you also get a free copy of Doom VFR and the PSVR demo disc 2.0.
Also reduced is the Skyrim VR bundle, down to $349.99 from $449.99. This pack swaps out Doom for Bethesda’s celebrated RPG and adds two PlayStation Move motion controllers, too.
Over in the EU, meanwhile, the PSVR Starter Pack has been reduced to €299.99 from €399.99 (for from £349 to £259 if you’re in the UK). This bundle gets you the headset, camera and a download code for PlayStation VR Worlds, Sony London’s launch day minigame compilation.
These are the first official price drops PSVR has seen since launch back in October 2016. Since that time, Sony’s headset has sold at least two million units and seen the launch of big games like Resident Evil 7 and, more recently, Moss. Last week, Sony also outlined all the PSVR games set to arrive ahead of this year’s E3 in June, including big names like Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality.
The cut also puts PSVR back at $100 cheaper than one of its PC-based rivals, the Oculus Rift. Will Sony continue to outsell its competition for the rest of PSVR’s lifecycle?
