The $399.99 Sony PlayStation VR will be offered close to launch in October. So if you already own a PlayStation camera and move controllers you can hold off for now. There will be cheaper option coming.
The PlayStation VR Bundle is a decent value bundle with everything you need to use the PlayStation VR in its full extend. Besides the virtual reality headset the bundle include the PlayStation 4 Camera, 2 PlayStation Move controller and the VR Worlds disc.
The PS VR bundle will be available for pre-order starting at 7:00 a.m. PT on Tuesday, March 22nd at participating retailers including Amazon.com.
Due to limited quantities, purchases will be limited to 1 per customer, and Amazon will disable 1-Click Ordering for the PS VR bundle. Sony warns that only limited quantities will be available. There is another pre-order wave coming in summer.
I suggest you mark your calendar now and set a reminder for at least an hour before the pre-order launch and check multiple retailers at the same time to increase your chances to file a pre-order successfully.
