VR - PlayStation


 

The PlayStation VR is getting a price cut in the hopes that it will bring more new gamers into the virtual reality fold.

As detailed on the official PlayStation Blog, the PS VR will be available for as little as $299.99 starting tomorrow, March 29th, down from its original price of $399.99. This is the price reduction of the main PS VR bundle that includes Doom VFR, but the hardware’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim bundle—including the game, all add-ons, and two Move controllers—has also been reduced from $449.99 to $349.99.

Earlier this year, Sony made that bold claim that it aims to increase the PS VR’s game library by 80 percent. Progress towards this goal is already underway, with quality experiences like Moss having already dropped this year. For something a little more competitive and “adult,” the hardware’s upcoming Firewall Zero Hour takes the tactical, close-quarters shooting of games like Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege and brings it to VR.

In other PlayStation news, the platform’s list of free PS Plus games for April was recently announced, featuring a little variety for everyone.
