Picking up PlayStation VR is either incredibly easy or a little maddening.
With millions of PlayStation 4 consoles in homes around the world, Sony's entry into the VR world means there's a ton of people ready to plug in and start playing. This is great news for VR game developers, but it also means you need to know where to go in order to get your hands on one right now. Here's where you need to shop!
PlayStation VR Launch Bundle
If you're looking for everything you need to get started in VR, Sony's Launch Bundle is what you'll want to look at first. It comes with everything you need to play all PlayStation VR games and includes a free game as well as a demo disc with lots of other games to check out. It's $100 more than the core headset, but you get way more than $100 worth of extra things in the box. Here's where you can find the Launch Bundle!
While currently sold out, Amazon plans to have more Launch Bundles available on October 22nd. These bundles will also be available in Prime shipping options so you can get delivery next day in most locations.
Not every Walmart location will have Launch Bundles in stock, but the website offers Launch Bundles with rush shipping options for anywhere in the US. You can also pick up a protection plan in case you damage your headset.
While not every GameStop store will have PSVR Launch Bundles in stock, you can currently order from their website. Gamestop promises delivery within 24 hours to anyone in the US.
PlayStation VR Core Headset
If you already have a PlayStation Camera for your PlayStation 4, and either aren't interested in PlayStation Move controllers or plan to buy them later, the Core Headset box is a great way to jump straight into the action. As the name suggests, it comes with just the headset and a demo disc. For $399, it's the best way to jump straight into VR in your living room. Here's where you can find the Core Headset!
