£316 with my 5% student discount. I am so close to biting for that price. Heat.

I pre-ordered in March at full retail £349 for my son. He got it on 13th Oct and has used it nearly every day since. I would definitely recommend it - you won't be disappointed. Is now the right time to buy? Not sure - but I doubt we will see significant further price drops until after Xmas.

Keep in mind that you need the PS4 (not PS3) camera (£40) and optionally 2 move controllers (£69 new - i got 2 from CEX in Sept for £15 each).

Thanks op, i've put it through Flubit. See if they offer a better price.

That's just a placeholder surely? Won't be any at stock at that price as all the PS3 controllers went up to £40.

Non available from Amazon, let's you go to checkout but then says there isn't enough for the quantity you have selected so they have amended to what is available which is 0. I tried to buy 1.

It's hard to say if now is the time to buy in. A lot of the early games are likely going to drop very heavily in cost given a few months. Also the move controllers are obviously very expensive due to demand but should also see a significant cut once most people who need them have them.

I might be being tight but paying £20+ for these psn games quickly adds up as well.

I think unless you really can't live without waiting a few months is better, maybe get a vr headset, camera, controller bundle (which I still think is criminal we didn't get), get some of the games on psn sales etc.

FYI for those who doubt this still. My mum who is in no way a gamer at all tried job simulator and after about 20 minutes explaining how to use the move controller... spent about 2 hours on it, couldn't get her off. She was blown away by it. Seriously if anyone you know is doubting it you have got to get them to actually try it. Just keep in mind that if it's a family member you might end up fighting over who uses it lol

​You need the camera otherwise you can't use it but the move controllers are usually optional. I am waiting for the price of move controllers to come down. I've not played much on it as I've had a busy few weeks but Until Dawn rush of blood has entertained me.

Thank you

Very nice, they've price matched Tesco. Thanks for posting will add to the PSVR thread.

Is it auto-applied? I have NUS/Amazon Student, and nothing gets taken off at checkout.

Edit: Sorted. For others, just go nus.org.uk/en/…on/ get your code, and paste it in at checkout.

Nice to see students priorities on spending their money.lol.

Nope, I'm assuming these are deemed as inferior in some way. I got the last two online (so £14 + delivery) earlier this week...but they might still have this 'version' in-store.

What did your Flubit come back as?

Is this 332 quid just for the vr? Or does it include the console? Bit steep for a gimmick isn't it?

This might be a silly question as I'm not overly clued up on all this gaming stuff but do you need to buy games that specifically are for vr only or can any ps4 games be played on it? Thinking of getting this for the OH for xmas as he loves his gaming.

I ran it through flubit and got a offer of 327

The item Sony PlayStation VR is no longer available from the seller you selected.

My understanding is that to get the VR experience you need games made specifically for it, but you can also use it instead of a TV screen for movies or non-VR games (other people please feel free to correct me as I've not actually used one yet).

​Oooh I see thank you for that

No longer available amazon

Keeps coming back in stock, keep trying.

Shame Amazon won't refund the difference anymore for those that loyally pre ordered and paid full price just two weeks ago. I expected price drops in the future, but within two weeks of launch is a bit much.

To be fair, if another retailer had been cheaper, you would have loyally bought it elsewhere.

That makes no sense


People who preorder are not buying because it's cheap. Or they would wait.

This lump of crap add on will be so much cheaper when they start packaging it all together.

Got this yesterday not expecting much and it is awesome, you cant explain it unless you actualy try it. Well worth the money!

​aliwoo is correct in what he said, you will get a demo disc of vr titles included plus a load of free stuff (playroom vr) etc to download which is very good .
It's worth mentioning that non vr games appear on a 226" screen which although is at a lover resolution is still really impressive....
