Last Wave Of PlayStation VR Preorders Coming: Here's What You Need To Know

Close

If you are planning to preorder Sony's PlayStation Virtual Reality headset, here is good news: Sony just announced that the last wave of preorders for its PS VR kick starts on June 30, at 10 a.m. Eastern Time or 7 a.m. Pacific Time.

One can preorder this much-awaited wearable device via GameStop's website, according to John Koller, vice president of PlayStation Brand Marketing, in a blog post.

"As promised, we're opening our summer wave of PS VR pre-orders starting Thursday, June 30 at 7:00 AM Pacific on GameStop.com," says Koller. "Supplies are limited, and this is your final chance to pre-order."

Once consumers miss out on this, they can snag one in retail stores across the United States at the device's launch which is scheduled on Oct. 13.

The company, though, warned earlier that customers should expect shortages when the device starts hitting store shelves four months from today.

Andrew House previously said that the company has growing confidence that it will be "supply constrained" with the PS VR, though, he also said that the company will do the best that it can in order to meet consumer demand.

"Virtual reality is a medium that's in its infancy," said House. "With such a nascent, very new form of storytelling, it's difficult to predict what user uptake is going to be."

Earlier this year, Sony assured consumers that if they miss out on the first wave of preorders, they should not worry, as "another wave in the summer" was promised. And that happens nnow, on June 30.

Price Points

Consumers who wish to grab the PS VR will have two options to pick from. The VR core carries the price of $399. The Launch Bundle, meanwhile, is priced at $499 and comes with the VR headset itself along with a slew of additional accessories, including the PlayStation Camera, which is a necessity when using the wearable device, two Move controllers plus a PlayStation Worlds disc.

For those who are not aware yet, users of PS VR (along with owners of HTC Vive and Oculus Rift) will also soon have the chance to watch a film about the story of Jesus Christ, yes, in VR.

Buyers will be also treated with these five VR games which will give them a new gaming experience: Into the Deep (though this is still a working title), Scavenger's Odyssey, The London Heist, The Luge and Danger Ball.

The PS VR is compatible with the PS4 systems and an array of games, such as Resident Evil VII, Batman: Arkham VR, Final Fantasy 15, Star Wars: Battlefront and Detroit: Become Human.

If you are among those who are planning to buy one, then you better be quick as stock is not likely to last long. You may also want to bookmark this GameStop page and set the alarm.
