PlayStation VR bundles are cheaper than ever – but there’s a catch

Sony has introduced some sizeable discounts for its PlayStation VR bundles – but there’s some bad news for Brits.

In a bid to woo more gamers over to its flagship virtual reality gaming platform, Sony has announced discounts for a whole host of PlayStation VR bundles. Unfortunately, the deals only appear to be available in the USA and Canada, leaving UK players in the lurch for now.

So, what’s new? Well, there’s now a new bundle that includes the PlayStation VR headset and PlayStation Camera. This’ll set you back either $399 USD in the USA or $499 CAD in Canada.

“This essentially gives you the PlayStation Camera at no extra charge, and will be the core PSVR bundle moving forward,” explains Mary Yee, VP of Playstation Marketing for Sony Interactive Entertainment America.

Sony also says that the existing PlayStation VR Worlds bundle will be available at a new lower price of $449 USD in the USA and $579 in Canada. This gets you a PSVR headset, a PS Camera, two PlayStation Move motion controllers, and the PlayStation VR Worlds game.

Both of these bundles will start arriving at retailers on September 1, 2017, so it’s worth checking with your local retailers regarding availability.

We gave the PlayStation VR a rare 5/5 score, praising the platform’s amazing roster of games, simple setup, comfortable design, and the great value for money on offer – particularly when compared to premium rival headsets like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.

Here’s our verdict, as penned by Gaming Editor Brett Phipps: “PlayStation VR is simply the best virtual reality headset you can buy right now. It’s cheap while not compromising on performance and quality. The headset is simply stunning and incredibly comfortable to wear, and the games already available are some of the best VR experiences I’ve ever played.”
