New $499 PlayStation VR “Launch Bundle” Announced

PSVR_Launch BundleStarting March 22nd, pre-orders will open for the PlayStation VR Launch Bundle at participating retailers in USA and Canada.

Priced at $499 USD/$699.99 CAD, the bundle will add a PlayStation Camera, two PlayStation Move controllers and PlayStation VR Worlds (disc) to the goods you’d get with the core, headset-only, $399 USD/$549 CAD bundle (which also includes a “PlayStation VR demo disc”, it turns out).

The Launch Bundle will be available in “limited quantities” only for those who pre-order. No information has been given with regards to other territories.

For your information, the current MSRP for the PlayStation Camera is $59.99 USD, while a pair of PlayStation Move controllers would cost you $119.98 USD. You can actually purchase both at much lower prices tho. From Amazon, for example, you can get the PlayStation Camera at $45 USD and two PlayStation Moves at 60$ (about half the MSRP).

Considering the Launch Bundle also comes with Sony’s London Studio PlayStation VR Worlds (which would probably cost $39.99 stand-alone), I’d say it’s a fairly good offer. We are talking a saving of at least $45 USD.
