Sony PSVR Supply Is Solid
 

Don't Miss: Amazon 12 Days of Deals Sale

The Sony PlayStation VR is still in stock online after the first 12 hours of its launch.

Update: The situation about the Sony PSVR supply has completely changed 24 hours into the sales launch. Now, 24 hours after the launch, the Sony PlayStation VR launch bundle is sold out online. 

The Sony PlayStation VR launched at midnight Eastern Time. Both the PSVR Core and the PSVR Launch Bundle are still in stock at major retailers including Amazon, Best Buy and GameStop after the first 12 hours. Supplies at physical stores varies, but you can still buy the PSVR online without any issues.

GameStop warns online that only limited quantities are available. Amazon and Best Buy do not have any warnings. Walmart for some reason has no stock of the Sony PlayStation VR in the online store. The Sony PSVR is sold out at the ToysRUs online store. The toy retailer had stock in the early hours of today.

We do not know how many PlayStation VR units Sony has sold through in the first 12 hours. There is significant hype around the launch and the PlayStation VR Launch Bundle is the best seller in the video game category on Amazon.com. The PSVR Core ranks third. That means that most PS4 owners do not own the PlayStation Camera and the Motion controllers. They need to get them now as part of the PSVR Launch bundle as the Sony VR headset does not work without these accessories.

SuperData Research predicts that Sony will sell 2.6 million Sony PlayStation VR units by the end of the year. This number would make Sony the market leader in home virtual reality.

The Sony PlayStation VR is sold as core package and launch bundle. The $399.99 PS VR core package is for PS4 owners that already have the PlayStation Camera and two PlayStation Move motion controllers. The $499.99 PS VR launch bundle is including these accessories necessary to use the PlayStation VR.

The first generation Sony PlayStation VR CUH-ZVR1 renders images on a 5.7-inch OLED panel with a resolution of 1,920x1,080px. For each eye a resolution of 960x1,080px is available. The supported refresh rate is 120Hz and the Field of View (FOV) is about 100 degrees. The 610g weighing PS VR has a six-axis motion sensing system (three-axis gyroscope, three-axis accelerometer) built-in. 

The PlayStation VR Core package is packed with a VR headset, Processor unit, VR headset connection cable, HDMI cable, USB cable, Stereo headphones (with a complete set of earpiece), AC power cord and AC adaptor.

The Sony PlayStation VR release comes with a number of PlayStation VR launch games, including Drive Club VR and Batman Arkham VR.
