It was only a few short days ago we learned that Sony plans on launching the PlayStation VR in October, and most importantly it would run for $399 USD/$549.99 CAD. It’s a great price, especially with its competitors being a lot more pricey. There is a catch. You still need a PlayStation Camera and a pair of motion controllers (for some games) which cost extra (usually $60 for the camera and $30 each for the motion controllers).

If you are missing out on the controllers and camera, Sony announced that the PlayStation VR Launch Bundle will be available at participating retailers starting March 22nd at 7 a.m. PST in limited quantities. The bundle will cost $499.99 USD/$699.99 CAD and comes with everything you need to start your VR gaming including a copy of PlayStation VR Worlds, where you will be able to enjoy multiple VR titles right away.

Here is what’s inside of the PlayStation VR Launch Bundle:

  • PS VR headset
  • PS VR cables
  • Stereo Headphones
  • PlayStation VR Demo Disc
  • PlayStation Camera
  • 2 PlayStation Move motion controllers
  • PlayStation VR Worlds (disc)

If you miss out on the first pre-order bundle, there will be a second wave of pre-orders in the summer. I’d recommend not missing out the first time if you are excited for VR on the PlayStation 4. Sony also revealed there are no plans for pre-ordering the core bundle, at least for now.

  • The London Heist puts you straight into a gritty gangland thriller where you get to unleash your inner gangster. The London Heist is best controlled by dual PS Move controllers but you can also play with a DualShock 4 instead with intuitive controls that make it surprisingly easy to pick up and play. You will feel highly immersed as you undertake an audacious robbery and then try to make your escape.

  • Into The Deep (working title) puts you to work as a deep sea salvor. It’s an emotional underwater roller coaster. Not only do you get to see fantastic marine life all around you but as you descend through the ocean layers to the inky depths you will experience the true terror of something going horribly wrong.

  • VR Luge lets you step into the jumpsuit of an illegal street racer. Thunder down a beautiful Californian hillside, only inches off the ground in a position that only VR can put you in. You will truly feel the exhilaration as you dodge cars coming at you with horns blaring or when you slide underneath a massive 18-wheel truck.

  • Danger Ball is a futuristic sport where you must win or die. Use your head to strike and spin the ball in this intense, fast paced, game. Each rival has unique abilities to use against you as you make your way through the tournament to become champion.

  • Scavenger’s Odyssey. In this cab based sci-fi adventure you play an alien treasure hunter. With your agile craft you can leap huge distances, climb walls, hurl debris with your Scavenger beam, and pummel alien critters with your twin pulse cannons. With your unique vehicle you will be able to make your way through a dangerous, infested environment of giant ravaged ships, smashing asteroids to reach an ancient and legendary artifact.
