GameStop is getting more PlayStation VR bundles

If you’re having a hard time finding the PlayStation VR, GameStop[1] is ready to help.

The retailer announced today that it is receiving more PlayStation VR to sell to customers. It will offer them as a part of two different bundles. Both will come with the PSVR headset, a PlayStation 4 Camera, and two Move motion controllers. One bundle comes with Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, a first-person shooter/horror game, while the other includes the minigame collection VR Worlds.

PlayStation VR launched for the PlayStation 4 last October. It allows people to experience virtual reality through Sony’s newest console, not requiring a more expensive gaming computer like the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. These kinds of shortages aren’t rare for the gaming industry, as we’ve seen with the Nintendo Entertainment Classic Edition[2].

The Until Dawn: Rush of Blood bundle is exclusive to GameStop, and it will sell for $500. You can preorder it now with an estimated delivery date of February 21. The VR Worlds bundle also costs $500.

“Our customers told us they wanted more PSVR. We listened and delivered,” said Bob Puzon, senior vice president of merchandising for GameStop, in a press release on the company’s site[3]. “We are encouraging customers to purchase their PSVR Bundle now before we sell out of them.”

PlayStation VR just got what might be its first killer-app with Resident Evil 7, a first-person horror game that supports virtual reality. About 10 percent of people playing Resident Evil 7 used PlayStation VR.
