Preorders of the Sony’s PlayStation Virtual Reality headset is being getting quick attentions in the market. Although the official shipping period is set until October. On Amazon this wasn’t a joke as there were lots and lots of preorder sales as of Tuesday. The online market place still promised that those who had missed the first round of sales will be having a second chance to get the VR headset for around $499 while limited period of preorder starts at 5PM ET according to a tweet from the company. All other outlets will also be selling out the VR headset which makes Amazon part of the sales mate and not just the sole seller.
Already we’ve gotten Facebook owned Oculus’ Rift VR while HTC Vive too had already been planned out to start shipping in few weeks tomes, this could be like a little delay on the Sony’s PlayStation VR headset side but still the pricing might just make it exclusive to its selling point.
The $500 bundle includes the PlayStation VR headset, a PlayStation Camera, two PlayStation Move controllers, and a copy of the launch game PlayStation VR Worlds.
Rift sells around $599 while HTC Vive goes for $799 both which are quite expensive unlike the PlayStation VR which could be a better choice for gamers who wants a better and cheaper Headset. Sony thus said that it will be offering preorder of the standalone PlayStation VR headset for as low as $399 starting Tuesday, March 29th at 10 AM ET for those who already have PlayStation Camera and Move controller rather than having them in excess.
