When these were bundled with the PS VR they were about £50, but I can't seem to find any other similar prices for them on their own. Everywhere else seems to be about £20 dearer.

£76.99 on Amazon.
£69.99 on Argos.
OOS on Tesco Direct (were £69.99).
£69.99 at Currys & PC World.
£68.99 on John Lewis.
£68.99 at Smyths.

It's €49.99 + €7.50 P&P, which works out at about £51.25 according to xe.com.
48 hour delivery using either UK Mail Tracked or DPD UK.


You can also get one of the old model wands bundled with the Wonderbook bundle for €20, and as far as I know they'd work with PS VR as well, so possibly
2 Move controllers for €47.50 / £42.33 including P&P to the UK (shock)!! (credit jco83). They'll have older batteries though so mightn't last as long.

Ooh interesting. There isn't much difference between the old and new controller models is there? I think the USB type is different and there's a better battery?
2 separate controllers + UK P&P = €47.50 / £42.33!!

I was thinking of asking if you knew whether there is any difference between them as I don't know

I think I read somewhere that the old ones have the Mini USB port, but that's not a biggie. I'll search for some info.

Okay here's what I found:

'But here's the problem with buying Move controllers from the existing stock (or even used ones). For one thing, we don't know if Sony ever stopped producing the devices between 2010 and today. So it's unclear how long the available controllers have been sitting on store shelves or in warehouses.

Move controllers contain rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, which have shelf life of a few years. So if these wands were manufactured more than a couple of years ago — even if they're "new" and in their original packaging — they may not hold a charge for very long. (The Move wand's battery life is rated at a maximum of 10 hours, according to Sony.) And obviously, the battery life will be even worse for used Move controllers.'

So it seems to be a bit of a gamble. The Wonderbook bundle was first released in November 2012, so the lithium-ion batteries might be buggered. Then again they might be fine :)?

Sound logic. Better going for the new ones
@james42041 is this what you need?
Very hot. Lowest price I have seen recently outside of a bundle.
Was about to order and then saw this

uk.trustpilot.com/rev…com

Anyone on this board dealt with these guys. Not sure whether I should pull the trigger???

I dont know if those reviews are for the US stores/stores in other countries, but they're an established retailer & have stores in Ireland. I just ordered and received a PS VR bundle from them a few days ago, they're perfectly legit don't worry.
Think I am going to pass.
Screw it, cheers op - ordered.
Was a bit concerned about the TrustPilot rating. Decided to go for it, clicked proceed, and... Error. Call Customer Service. Bravo


EDIT - tried 3 times now with PayPal. Doesn't work, errors out every time at order acceptance. PayPal not showing any activity.

Amazon.fr also has these at 49.99EUR, with UK shipping costing around 5EUR. They're out of stock, but you can still place the order nonetheless:
amazon.fr/gp/…h=1

According to this you're better off paying in Euros and declining Amazon's own currency conversion.

Still in stock just ordered one. Ps. I've bought Black Friday Ps4 1TB Bundle from them 2 years ago with no issues they were based in UK then but think that didn't make much difference, heat up, Thanks!

@james42041 is this what you need?


Yeah, that's what's come from hughes, I'll Return it as this is £20 cheaper
Heat added. This is a great deal - thank you!

Here's the PS VR bundle including Move controllers I got from Gamestop last week.
@copperspock I am not sure why you posted a picture - perhaps you work there? I know the company exist and are bona fide. However it is clear that there CS is poor / very poor, therefore I would prefer to order elsewhere. Amazon FR is practically the same price and I can be assured of good customer if something was to go wrong.

I posted the pic as evidence that I received an order from them, I quoted you by mistake. I don't work there no.

It's clear that there is anecdotal evidence of the Gamestop CS generally being poor, but I don't think it's clear at all that this applies to the Irish business (only one review mentions euros, but twenty-four mention dollars), or whether it's an accurate overall picture, seeing as annoyed customers are more likely to leave reviews.

Sorry I missed your comment. Yeah Gamestop ship to the UK too. The controllers seem to be expensive most places. I think your best bet at the mo is to try to snipe an ebay auction. Looking at the completed listings, a few have ended for ~£50.

Order about to ship - expected delivery 5th or 6th December. I wonder whether they will be the new kind with the micro USB ports...

I received the same email.
Received mine today from Amazon.fr. Can confirm they're not the new model with the micro USB ports, but it doesn't make much difference, and they were a lot cheaper than the retail price £49.01 by my reckoning!

Arrived but with customs charges to pay. How can that be - Ireland is EU and N.Ireland is UK...???

Customs charges ? You ordered from GameStop Ireland right? You shouldn't have to pay any customs charges from an Irish store.

Exactly what I thought - and you're right too: 'twas a case of mistaken identity... I hit the forum prematurely. Another package package had arrived from the US - almost exactly the same value. As we've ordered the same thing many times before without being hit by customs charges, I assumed that they'd never make a demand. So the customs issue is cleared-up but it's worring that the controllers still haven't arrived and that GameStop has not replied to 'contact us' messages. Fingers crossed they will arrive before Christmas.
still waiting on mine, paid and took money back in november, now not answering any emails and had to resort to paypal dispute which they haven't answered either, very poor customer services!!!
