[UPDATE]PlayStation has just announced a massive price drop for PSVR

[UPDATE] – PlayStation has just confirmed that the new RRP in Australia is $419.95.

This is a massive drop from the current $549 AUD price tag.

Original story follows.

If you’ve been thinking about buying a PSVR, I’d recommend waiting just a little longer. PlayStation has today announced a massive PSVR price drop that will make it much more affordable.

The PSVR price drop is happening across the UK, Europe, the US and Australia, though there are different prices and packages available.

PSVR Price Drop

Going live on March 29 in Europe, the UK and the US, the price drop won’t come into effect in Australia until April 2. The current price of the PSVR per region is;

  • US/Canada – $399.99 USD/499.99 CAD 
  • Europe – €399.99
  • UK – £399
  • Australia – $549 AUD

In the US the price will drop to $299.99 USD/379.99 CAD. US p;layers will also be able to get their hands on some great Bethesda games as part of the PSVR price drop with the PlayStation VR Doom VFR Bundle and PlayStation VR The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR Bundle getting price reductions.

DOOM VFR bundle costs $299.99 USD/379.99 CAD and includes

  • a PS VR headset, PlayStation Camera, PS VR Demo Disc 2.0 and the Doom VFR Blu-ray Disc. Doom VFR brings the fast-paced, kinetic gameplay fans of the series love as an all-new virtual reality experience.

The Skyrim VR bundle costs $349.99 USD/449.99 CAD (originally $449.99 USD/579.99 CAD) and includes;

  • the PS VR headset, PlayStation Camera, two PlayStation Move controllers, the PS VR Demo Disc 2.0 and the Skyrim VR core game and all official add-ons. Skyrim VR brings to life the epic open world of The Elder Scrolls in an immersive virtual reality experience.

PSVR on the Cheap

In the UK, Europe and Australia, it doesn’t appear that there are any additional bundles available. However, the price of PSVR in these regions will be reduced to;  £259.99 and  £259.99.

We have reached out to PlayStation to find out the new price in Australian dollars, but based on the other PSVR price drops, we’re expecting that on April 2, the cost of PSVR in Australia will be $449 AUD.

There’s a chance it may be reduced further, but given the cost of tech in Australia and the price drops in other regions, $449 seems the most likely price.

Once we have confirmation, we’ll update this post.

There are over 100 PSVR experiences on PS4 and with the price drop, there’s never been a better time to jump in.
