Sony recently unveiled the PlayStation VR, and at select retailers you can now place a pre-order to guarantee one for yourself. There is already lots of hype around these, as initial listings in the UK apparently sold out in under 15 minutes. Luckily, there is more than just one place to pre-order the PlayStation VR, and here are some of the options you have. If you want to ensure you have a unit when it officially releases in October, be sure to place your order now.
Of course, Amazon will have pre-orders of the PlayStation VR. Availability may be limited from the online retailer, so you will want to act quick and check frequently if you aren't able to grab one immediately. If you prefer to buy from Amazon, you can also sign up to be notified when there is more stock available.
Update: Amazon has announced they will open up more pre-orders for the PlayStation VR at 5 p.m. EST. Ordering through Amazon offers the advantage of not having your card charged until the PlayStation VR ships. Act fast, as these will likely sell out just as fast as the first round of pre-orders.
Best Buy is offering a PlayStation VR bundle for $499 which includes the headset, camera, controllers and a demo disk to get you started. The kit actually comes out a bit cheaper to buy it all as one instead of buying the pieces separately.
Much like Best Buy, GameStop in the U.S. will be selling a PlayStation VR bundle for $499. It comes with the same pieces, but gives you another option of where to buy it from. You can pre-order it now.
GameStop is currently accepting pre-orders for the PlayStation VR in the UK. The retailer has it priced at £349, and remember, you will need a PlayStation Camera for the full experience, You can order one from GameStop as well.
In the UK, you can also pre-order from Game if you are interested, and the retailer is offering 2,800 Reward points with the purchase as well. Game will be accepting pre-orders both online and in-store, so be sure to get in early on this! It is worth noting that Game may require a £100 deposit with your pre-order.
SimplyGames is also offering the PlayStation VR with an anticipated availability date of October 28. An added benefit of purchasing through SimplyGames is that you can pay with PayPal credit so you can break up the cost over 12, 18 or 24 months.
Why is there PlayStation stuff here?
PlayStation on Android Central?!? We use our Android phones to interact with the PlayStation 4 — especially if you have a Sony Xperia phone. We're also talking a lot more about VR, and PlayStation VR is just as big a part of that conversation. It stretches things outside of Android a little, but it's also going to be a lot of fun. Enjoy!
