Sony has announced a $100 price drop to their PlayStation VR headset across the board. The PSVR Doom VFR bundle now starts at $300 and the PSVR Skyrim bundle runs $350.
Bringing prices that haven’t been seen since temporary sales during 2017’s holiday shopping period, Sony is permanently slashing prices on the PlayStation VR, making it more accessible than ever. Announced via the company’s blog today, starting May 29th the MSRP of the headset’s usual bundles will be dropped by $100:
PlayStation VR Doom VFR Bundle [Amazon]
$300 USD/380 CAD (Originally $400 USD/500 CAD)
Includes a PS VR headset, PlayStation Camera, PS VR Demo Disc 2.0 and the Doom VFR Blu-ray Disc. Doom VFR brings the fast-paced, kinetic gameplay fans of the series love as an all-new virtual reality experience.
PlayStation VR The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR Bundle [Amazon]
$350 USD/450 CAD (Originally $450 USD/580 CAD)
Includes the PS VR headset, PlayStation Camera, two PlayStation Move controllers, the PS VR Demo Disc 2.0 and the Skyrim VR core game and all official add-ons. Skyrim VR brings to life the epic open world of The Elder Scrolls in an immersive virtual reality experience.
Both bundles include the slightly newer CUH-ZVR2 PSVR model, which includes integrated earbuds and a few other tweaks. Sony says that PSVR in 2018 is “all about the content,” and recently highlighted some 30 games launching this Spring. As of now, the platform has more than 100 titles.
Meanwhile, PSVR’s PC competitors, Oculus Rift [Amazon] and HTC Vive [Amazon], are priced at $400 and $500 respectively, with the Rift seeing a number of sales celebrating its two year anniversary this week, and the Vive having recently seen its own $100 price drop.
