PlayStation VR available for pre-order in limited quantities beginning Thursday, 6/30

This is your last chance to pre-order the product. Fail to act, and prepare to stand in line with the unwashed at midnight the night before launch.


Sony is giving GameStop one last infusion of PlayStation VR headsets for pre-order. Sony will open its "summer wave" of pre-orders tomorrow, June 30, beginning at 7:00a on

According to an announcement on the PlayStation Blog (via GameSpot), this is the last chance for early birds to get a PSVR-shaped worm. "Supplies are limited, and this is your final chance to pre-order. If you miss out, we will have product available in retail stores nationwide at launch."

Make sure to bookmark this GameStop page so you can pounce on a PSVR the moment they become available.

There are two pre-order options for anyone interested in punching their ticket for PSVR. The PlayStation VR Core bundle retails for $399.99 and includes the headset, cables, stereo headphones, and a demo disc.

For $499.99, the Launch bundle includes everything in the Core package, plus two PlayStation Move controllers, one PlayStation VR Worlds demo disc, and a PlayStation Camera. Given that you need a PS Camera to use PSVR, you might as well spring for the Launch option.
