You might have already splurged on Black Friday and Cyber Monday for the biggest VR deals of the season, but if you were reticent to pull out your credit card and plonk down a few hundred on that shiny new PSVR game bundle, you may want to rethink that decision with the platform’s next big offering that’s slated to launch before Christmas.
Update (10:15 ET): Sony has now released word of the bundle in a PS blog post, most likely meaning a swath of retailers will be offering the deal.
BestBuy.com is currently advertising pre-orders for a new PSVR bundle which includes the hotly awaited Borderlands 2 VR and the indie breakout hit rhythm game Beat Saber (2018).
The pre-order listing states the bundle will launch on December 14th, costing $350.
The bundle includes the PlayStation VR headset, PlayStation Camera, two PlayStation Move motion controllers, demo disc, and both Borderlands 2 VR and Beat Saber game vouchers. Sorry folks, it doesn’t appear the physical retail release is included.
It’s uncertain at the time of this writing if other retailers will carry the bundle or if it’s a Best Buy exclusive (see update), although the deal presents even greater savings than the previously launched Creed: Rise to Glory + Superhot VR bundle, which is also regularly priced at $350.
Beat Saber launched just last week on PSVR for $30, while Borderlands 2 VR is set to cost $50 when it launches on December 14th, making the bundle a clear win over Creed: Rise to Glory and Superhot VR’s combined MSRP of $40.
If you didn’t manage to snap up a bundle at Black Friday pricing, the Borderlands 2 VR + Beat Saber offer is certainly the most attractive offer dollars-wise at this point.
