Sony's PlayStation VR is getting a price cut

New PlayStation VR US/Canadian Bundle Announced

First bundle will be launched across the US and Canada, and it will include the PlayStation VR headset and PlayStation Camera for $399 United States dollars / $499 CAD.

Sony has announced a new PlayStation VR bundle that effectively cuts the retail price of headset. "This essentially gives you the PlayStation Camera at no extra charge, and will be the core PS VR bundle moving forward." writes Mary Yee, VP of PlayStation Marketing. The camera itself costs $59. The camera is required to use the VR headset and had largely been sold separately outside of retailer-specific bundles and the original launch day bundle revealed for the VR headset ahead of its launch previous year. It's a great deal for anyone who didn't already take the plunge, but it's freakish that the starter kit didn't already include one integral piece of equipment you actually need if you want to use the set to begin with. It's now a part of the core bundle. More importantly, the more expensive bundle that also features PlayStation Worlds will drop to $449. It will start arriving in stores on September 1.
