PlayStation VR in $100??
PlayStation VR, when launched, was really expensive as the prices were above the roof for some gamers who preferred normal ps4 pro rather than PlayStation VR and looks like Sony is permanently cutting down the prices of PlayStation VR.
If you wanted to jump into the virtual reality bandwagon but were hesitating due to the price then it’s time you jump in because Sony may have just announced the incentive you needed i.e. a price drop of $100. Which means you can now save $100 while purchasing a PlayStation VR. Sony announced on it’s official PlayStation Blog that it will be cutting down the price of PlayStation VR permanently in the US and the UK from March 29 that is today and in Australia from April 2nd. In the UK the headset will now be sold at just £259, whereas when launched it was sold for over £349 which is cut the price cut Sony has done. Previously Sony had cut down the price of PlayStation portable and now it’s time for it’s highly built but less hyped PlayStation VR which sold 2 million units, unlike other consoles which were a huge hit in foreign countries.
The new priced PlayStation VR will get you the PSVR Starter Pack, which includes the headset, the PlayStation Camera, a download code for PlayStation VR Worlds and access to The Playroom VR.
In the US, there’s a wider variety of bundles discounted. Prices now start from $299.99, down from $399.99, for the DOOM VFR bundle which includes PS VR headset, PlayStation Camera, PS VR Demo Disc 2.0 and the Doom VFR Blu-ray Disc.
In Australia, the PlayStation VR will be sold at a recommended retail price of AU$419.95 from April 2, 2018. That's a rather hefty saving of AU$130 from its original launch price of $AU549.95 and there’s rarely a price cut down but; looks like Sony wants to increase the Sales of its console PlayStation VR.
There’s also a more expensive but expansive Skyrim VR bundle which is now sold for just $349.99 down from $449.99 its release price, and it comes with the PS VR headset, PlayStation Camera, two PlayStation Move controllers, the PS VR Demo Disc 2.0 and the Skyrim VR core game as well as all of the official add-ons s you can pay less and enjoy more now.
Between its launch in October 2016 and the end of 2017, Sony made an announcement that the PSVR had sold over 2 million units making it the best selling high-end virtual reality hardware on the market.
But looks like this price drop is for another reason and that’s because of recent HTC Vive price cut down so Sony is trying to maintain in the mainstream, as it’s an essential and only way for PlayStation to keep it’s VR headset competitively priced against the famous and lesser priced HTC Vive.
