It is evident Sony will maintain a firm grip on the VR industry for some time to come. The company sells the most headsets, and its latest PlayStation VR bundle will only attract more attention. For those who are still on the fence about virtual reality – especially from a gaming point of view – the following bundle has something for everyone
Another Smart Move by Sony
One has to commend Sony for offering a new PlayStation VR bundle to strengthen its position in the market. It is still a niche market first and foremost, but there are a lot of people who see merit in the gaming side of things. The new PS VR starter pack offers everything people need to get people started. This includes a few different games and extras, depending on where one is purchasing the unit from.
In the United Kingdom, there is a bundle with a headset, camera, and PS VR worlds. Additionally, there is Firewall Zero Hour, Resident Evil 7, and two months of NOW TV entertainment for a very sharp price. Users who do not like the extras too much can still buy the regular starter pack for a slightly cheaper price than normal. An interesting deal, at least in the UK.
With two top-of-the-line PlayStation VR games in this bundle, Sony is trying to get even more gamers excited about virtual reality. It is evident the mainstream AAA titles will still need to incorporate VR support at some point in the future, albeit it remains to be seen how this will all play out in the long run. If bundles like these prove to be successful, game developers may be swayed to give virtual reality a closer look.
It is now up to the other VR headset manufacturer to counter Sony’s offer. Both HTC and Oculus are struggling for sales, and a bundle with a nice discount will certainly help improve that situation. Especially with the current Oculus Go being far more affordable than the Rift, there are some interesting options to explore in terms of bundles and discounts.
