As Per title, Amazon Italy have reduced their PlayStation VR Headset V1 to £199, however this does not ship to the UK, Amazon Warehouse does ship, I would strongly recommend you enable translation on your browser as each item has a specific Description or flaw. However plenty in stock at time of posting
Also I'm not sure if these come with the two pin plugs either.

Seems a bit of a faff. No camera or game either. I reckon there will be deals closer to Christmas where stores are getting rid of their V1s

I've already got the camera and move controllers... and free games from PlayStation plus... tempting!!!

Used... good... no controller lol

i am after one of these... even if it is just for the novelty factor during the holidays. But MoonMonkey is right, I will hold my nerve and wait

Hello hello hello!

Suspect it will be an EU plug but that's ok adapters are cheap. Just make sure you don't use a 2 amp shaver adapter.

Look across al Amazon Warehouse European sites, they vary in price. I got one from France for £135, it was all sealed just the very outer box missing.

I'm curious, why cant a 2 amp shaver adaptor be used

Careful getting second hand PSVR's - you have no idea of the state of the non-replacable lenses.

Euro plugs and British shaver plugs look similar but are not.

Pins have a different diameter and spacing.

Euro plugs will fit in a shaver socket but will be loose as pins are 4mm as opposed to 5 mm on a shaver.

Guessing that's the reason.

I wouldn't have thought it would provide enough amperage tbh as it was intended for a low wattage device. Although admittedly i dont know if the power rating as it were of the psvr exceeds 2 amp?

I know you can just swap out the power cable for the ps4 itself if you grabbed a ps4 from the states or the eu and want to use it in the uk but not sure you can do that with the psvr.
Edited by: "otterboxer" 6th Dec

The psvr has a psu adapter that plugs into the unit where all the wires go, the adapter has a figure 8 type cable to the adapter, so perhaps a UK plugged figure 8 cable will do the trick to the PSU.

I bought a PSVR headset on black friday, brand new etc, it worked for 3 hours, after moaning at Amazon, they gave me a £40 gift voucher and sent me a replacement 2 days later and collected the broken unit, not bad £210 with skyrim and the psvr room voucher with the camera.

PSVR adapter is 36w, 3A -12v so probably about 0.2A from mains.

Nah your original statement is still correct mate.

As I said before shavers and euro plugs are not the same dimensions.

That pack is V1, so US getting shot of old stock? They are cutting the V2 too but to the same as Black Friday
Edited by: "SavageDonkey" 6th Dec

Is this brand new or second hand

why is the italian and other eu states prices for the psvr around the £199 price point in the first place ?

do sony get taxed less in the EU or something or is the UK currency vastly overvalued leading the sony corporation to ask the UK citizens to pay more

maybe sony are punishing us for brexit arghhhh

wouldnt mind one of these but not got enough fiat
Edited by: "ijwia" 7th Dec

Nice find

What's the difference between 'V1' and the other versions out there (assuming a V2)?

Says Prime needed?

Signed in with my UK Account which has Prime but its not seeing it?

Stores have already done this - Sony did a countrywide price drop of two V1 bundles to £249 over Black Friday weekend. Offer was supposed to last until 27/11, but stock was gone in a couple of days. I doubt very many if any are left in the stores. New bundles, including the V2 headset, were released at the begining of December for an RRP of £349 but are generally selling at £299 including the headset, a game and camera. For £349 you get the Move controllers thrown in.

The GT bundle has the V1 headset in, obviously they still have US stock to clear so maybe we will see them in the UK if Sony still has some. The other two bundles include the newer V2 headset and are selling at the prices they have since they were released afaik - usually the price in $ will be the same in £

Not much. The newer V2 headset is slightly redesigned to have the earbuds and swtiches built in, rather than on the connecting cables and therefore also slightly designed different connectors / cable. The main difference is the V2 processor box supports HDR pass thru which the old V1 didn't. Your PS4 HDMI output goes into the PSVR processor box (which the headset plugs into) and then another HDMI goes from the processor to the TV. When not using the PSVR, the signal still goes through the PSVR box but doesn't pass HDR so, if you have a TV which supported it, you have to unplug the cable from the PSVR and back into the PS4. Or... like me, you can just buy a switch box for less than £15.

There are no visual differences between using a V1 or V2 headset. There are small improvements if you use either headset with a PS4 Pro rather than a "standard" PS4.

The GT pack is V1, the other two are V2 and are already selling at those prices in the UK anyway (usually price in $ is the same as the price in £)

I picked one of these up from Amazon Italy.. Posted yesterday from the UK and with Hermes for delivery today.

Hermes say they attempted to deliver, however I've been in all day and nowt...

The little processing box on the v1 doesn't support 4k or HDR so if you have a ps4 pro and 4k TV you can't leave this plugged in if you want to play 4k HDR games.

Also I believe v2 comes with headphones built into the unit.

Mine arrived, from the UK, has EU plug but was sealed with a slightly damaged box (listed as good, box may be damaged)

Great if you don't have a hdr tv
