PlayStation VR will finally be with us this October and we can’t wait to stick our faces in it. Sony’s PS4 virtual reality headset is coming in way cheaper than the likes of Oculus Rift or HTC’s Vive, with a RRP of just £350/$399.
Below you’ll find our guide to the best preorder deals out there for the headset, with prices starting at the aforementioned £350/$399. Pricier options also include the PS4 camera. Don’t expect many discounts before release, but we’ll keep you posted if any pop up. For example, we’ve found a voucher code offer that will save you £20 (UK) over the next best deal. See below for details.
As things stand, many retailers are saying they can no longer guarantee delivery on day one. But this PlayStation VR deals page can still help you prepare by picking up the other kit you’ll need to enjoy the best PlayStation VR experience
With headset stock already an issue, it may be a good idea to pick up the PS4 camera (required for the headset to work) sooner rather than later in case you can’t find one later on. You could also grab a couple of PS Move motion controllers, as some VR games will support them. If you get these items now, you can play a small number of Move-based PS4 games like Sportsfriends or Just Dance.

PS4 camera deals
It’s crucial you buy a PS4 camera along with your VR headset, otherwise, it will not work. Preorder bundles with the camera included don’t actually save you money off the individual RRPs and they could be even rarer than the standalone headset at launch. Which is why you should try to track down a deal sooner. Don’t pay more than the standard £40/$60 though. If there’s nothing tempting below, maybe try for a new/preowned unit via eBay?
PlayStation Move controller deals
The PlayStation Move motion controllers are very much an optional purchase at launch as we don’t yet know how many games will support them. Many that do, will also have options to use the standard DualShock 4 PS4 controller instead.
Move wands aren’t as readily available as the cameras at the moment, but there are deals to be found if you shop around -or let us do it via that magical box below. We’d advise a little caution if you’re considering preowned units, as the lack of use in recent years may have dulled the charge capacity of the battery compared to new controllers. If you want to try your luck (and probably save a fair amount), here are some handy links for eBay.
We’ll update these prices on a regular basis and add any bundles that may appear featuring the headset, camera, controllers or games.
