UPDATE: As you may know, the PlayStation VR has been sold out everywhere for a few days now but Tesco has just had a delivery and has units on sale right now! They’re going for £17.50 under the RRP, too, which is extra awesome. We imagine these will be gone by the end of the day so get involved now unless you want to wait until at least mid November at Amazon…
- PlayStation VR – £332.49 @ Tesco
PlayStation VR is out now and we can’t wait to stick our faces in it. Sony’s PS4 virtual reality headset is coming in way cheaper than the likes of Oculus Rift or HTC’s Vive, with a RRP of just £350/$399.
Below you’ll find our guide to the best PlayStation VR prices out there for the headset, with prices starting around the aforementioned £350/$399. Pricier options also include the PS4 camera. Don’t expect many discounts before release, but we’ll keep you posted if any pop up.
Stock is currently selling out fast around the world, so bear with us if our comparison chart looks a little empty as retailers scramble for more stock. This PlayStation VR deals page can also help you prepare by picking up the other kit you’ll need to enjoy the best PlayStation VR experience
You’ll want to pick up the PS4 camera as you need it for the PlayStation VR headset to work. You could also grab a couple of PS Move motion controllers, as some VR games will support them. You can also use these items with a small number of Move-based PS4 games like Sportsfriends or Just Dance.
PlayStation VR headset deals
The grid below will be regularly updated with the latest prices for the PlayStation VR headset as they become available to order from different retailers. UPDATE: Stock is seemingly sold out at most stores for now in the UK, but keep an eye on the prices in the chart below for updates. Over in the US, stores are starting to get extra PlayStation VR back in stock, so check out the latest prices below.
We noticed that GameStop (USA) is running a few decent PlayStation VR bundles at the moment. Some of the options fully kit your PlayStation VR experience out with the headset, camera, two motion controllers and a game from as little as $100 extra (over buying the headset solo) making a decent saving overall.
PS4 camera deals
It’s crucial you buy a PS4 camera along with your VR headset, otherwise, it will not work. Preorder bundles with the camera included don’t actually save you money off the individual RRPs and they could be even rarer than the standalone headset at launch. Which is why you should try to track down a deal sooner. Don’t pay more than the standard £40/$60 for the old version though. If there’s nothing tempting below, maybe try for a new/preowned unit via eBay? UPDATE: Sony has released an updated rounder (see image above) model with a built-in TV-mount and there are a few deals included in the chart below, usually priced around £40-£45, which isn’t bad considering the new clip.
PlayStation Move controller deals
The PlayStation Move motion controllers are very much an optional purchase at launch as we don’t yet know how many games will support them. Many that do, will also have options to use the standard DualShock 4 PS4 controller instead.
Move wands aren’t as readily available as the cameras at the moment, but there are deals to be found if you shop around -or let us do it via that magical box below. We’d advise a little caution if you’re considering preowned units, as the lack of use in recent years may have dulled the charge capacity of the battery compared to new controllers. If you want to try your luck (and probably save a fair amount), here are some handy links for eBay.
We’ll update these prices on a regular basis and add any bundles that may appear featuring the headset, camera, controllers or games.
