The ‘complete’ PlayStation VR bundle is $500, pre-orders open next Tuesday

Sony announced that the PlayStation VR platform would cost $399 and launch this October[1] during the 2016 Game Developer’s Conference, but the company left out the fact that the system requires the $60 PlayStation 4 camera to function[2]. While it may be true that many players already own the camera, the fact it’s mandatory does add a bit to the price discussion.

Sony has now announced that it will be selling a bundle[3] that has every piece of hardware you need, or could want, for playing virtual reality games on the PlayStation 4. The bundle will sell for $499.99 in the US or $699.99 in Canada, and comes with the following:

  • All contents of the PS VR core bundle:
  • PS VR headset
  • PS VR cables Stereo
  • Headphones
  • PlayStation VR Demo Disc
  • PlayStation Camera
  • 2 PlayStation Move motion controllers
  • PlayStation VR Worlds (disc)

“Starting at 7:00 a.m. PT on Tuesday, March 22nd, pre-orders will open for the PlayStation VR Launch Bundle at participating retailers,” the official blog post states[4].
