Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced that PlayStation VR PlayStation camera Bundle will be available at an attractive new price point of 34,980 yen, $299 USD and €299/£259.99 (manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP)) from the currently available price of 44,980 yen, $399 USD and €399/£349.99 respectively starting March 29, 2018.
Since its launch in October 2016, approximately 300 PS VR software titles and experiences from third-party developers and publishers as well as from SIE Worldwide Studios have released globally. PS VR will continue to expand with highly anticipated launches on their way including Blood & Truth, WipEout Omega Collection and Firewall Zero Hour, The Persistence (Firesprite Ltd), Star Child (Playful Corp), Eden Tomorrow (Soul Pix), Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality (Adult Swim Games) and Smash Hit Plunder (Triangular Pixels) in addition to VR experiences such as Virry Safari: Wild Encounters (Fountain Digital) and CoolpaintrVR (Sngular). With the attractive new price point, SIE will further expand the PS VR platform along with the great line-up of exciting VR games and revolutionary experiences, delivering PlayStation as the best place to play to users worldwide.
This to me is great news because one of my main issues with the PlayStation VR was the over the top pricing. Is this pricing perfect? Not at all but it is a step in the right direction to bring even more players to the virtual world that PlayStation has crafted in the last two years.
