If you were quick, you might have got your hands on a PlayStation VR (PSVR) launch bundle last year. If you missed out, though, you needn’t worry; it’s coming back this month.
Sony today announced that its VR headset will soon be repackaged with extras including the PlayStation Camera, required to actually use the headset, two PlayStation Move motion controllers, and a copy of London Studios’ minigame compilation, PlayStation VR Worlds [Review: 5/10]. The bundle arrives next week for $499, the same price it was available for before launch. Standard PlayStation VR units, which don’t include any of these extras, cost $399.
But hold up, there’s more. Later this month that company will also push out another bundle that swaps VR Worlds for Supermassive Games’ horror rollercoaster ride, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood [Review: 7/10]. This package will be exclusive to GameStop and EB Games.
Based on our reviews, we’d definitely recommend waiting on the Until Dawn bundle if you can. PlayStation VR Worlds features a collection of amusing, but ultimately forgettable VR experiences, while Until Dawn’s brand of on-rails shooting delivers scares and thrills through the night. Both bundles also come with the standard demo disc that’s included with every PSVR unit, so you’ll be able to try out a number of other launch games.
More than anything, those hunting for PSVR units right now will be relieved to see more stock coming in. We’ve seen a lot of reports of sold out stock over the past few months, so hopefully these new bundles signal that Sony is ready to meet demand.
