Sony decides it will offer standalone PlayStation VR preorders
PlayStation VR preorders in the US start today at 10am ET (Tuesday March 22nd 2016) however owners of the PS4, who have already amassed a collection of PlayStation peripherals, may want to hold off for a short while because Sony has reversed its earlier decision to only offer a bundle for pre-order.
Which means that on Tuesday March 29th 20416, at various retailers, you'll now be able to order the $399.99 standalone headset, saying yourself a considerable amount of money.
Originally Sony said it would only take preorders for a $499.99 bundle including;
- the VR game collection PlayStation VR Worlds;
- the PlayStation Camera, which is required for PSVR;
- and two optional PlayStation Move controllers, which will only be required for some games.
However the camera first came out at the same time as the PS4 and PlayStation Move dates back to the PS3, so it's likely that many potential PSVR customers would only want to pick up the headset. Obviously this is very good news for previous PS4 and potential PSVR consumers.
It is likely that Sony will offer similar deal in the UK. We will keep you informed of any updates.
