PlayStation VR core pre-orders to start March 29 for $399

If you want to get your hands on a pre-order for the PlayStation VR headset without shelling out for the bundle that includes the PlayStation camera and other accessories, Sony has announced pre-orders for the standalone headset will begin on March 29. Sony made the announcement in an update to its previous pre-order announcement post:

Thanks to everyone for sharing their feedback on PlayStation VR pre-orders! It's clear that there's a lot of interest from many of you to secure the PlayStation VR core system, and I'm happy to share that we've decided to make it available for pre-order on Tuesday, March 29, at 7:00 a.m. PT at participating retailers.

As previously announced, pre-orders for the launch bundle that includes the PS VR Headset, PlayStation Camera, 2 PlayStation Move controllers and the VR Worlds collection of games will be available starting tomorrow, March 22 for $499. Those wanting the standalone headset pre-order will have to wait another week, but will end up shelling out $100 less at $399.

PlayStation VR is set to launch in stores starting this October.
