PlayStation VR is getting a significant and permanent price drop

PlayStation VR is getting a significant and permanent price drop

On the official PlayStation Blog, Sony confirmed that the PSVR headset will be receiving a permanent price cut in the USA and United Kingdom from March 29.

Since its launch in October 2016, approximately 300 PSVR software titles and experiences from third-party developers and publishers as well as from SIE Worldwide Studios (SIE WWS) have released globally.

We have some great news for those who have been waiting to jump into PlayStation VR. Both bundles include a PSVR headset, PlayStation Camera, PSVR Demo Disc 2.0 and the game's Blu-ray Disc.

For example, the Doom VFR package that was $400 in the USA and $500 CAD in Canada is now $400 and $380 CAD but also come with the same accessories. The same starter pack will be available at a lower price than usual in Australia and New Zealand starting April 2. Perhaps this new drop in price is some sort of indication? So now is the ideal time to get your hands on those VR headsets.

Moscow has denied being behind the attack on Sergei Skripal and his daughter in the southern English city of Salisbury on March 4. The order also shutters the Russian consulate in Seattle, a move motivated by the institution's proximity to a USA naval base.

One of the barriers to VR gaming is the cost of entry.

Talking about games, God Eater 3 has finally been announced for PlayStation 4 and PC. Also, this doesn't include any information about the registration process.

As Sony mentions in its blog post on the price cut, there are already 220 PS VR games and experiences available for the platform in the U.S., with 180 more set to launch before the end of the year.
