Can I price match the skyrim ps vr bundle to get 10% off 320$ ? Sorry if it’s a dumb question
All of the retailers are selling all PS VR bundles for the same price so you wont be able to PM.

I picked up skyrim bundle yesterday at Bestbuy before the sale and pm'd it to Wal-Mart which started the sale early.

Eb takes skyrim for 16 trade atm. Rather keep or wait till double trade credit again.

Double TIV is a rare event, 1 time per 12 month+, Eb games only make it 2 times.

EDIT: 3 times, missing the february double tiv, so maybe more often in the future.

It is 249.99 at bestbuy no need to match it. Also no controllers, those are valued at 130, or 100 when on sale.

So if you buy doom bundle u have to shell another 100 to get the controllers (not needed for doom but good to have for other games)

Essentially its 350 for doom when u add controllers VS 320 for Skyrim bundle. I personally don't care for Skyrim, doom is the better buy for me. Unless can trade Skyrim in and get doom without paying anything extra then that would be a better deal.

Actually can basically buy Skyrim bundle and then buy doom for 30 now and will be the same price. So Skyrim bundle wins especially if you sell Skyrim or trade it in
You can buy move controllers for 50 bucks brand new on ebay or used ones on kijjiji way cheaper. So the doom bundle is technically a better buy.

Doom VFR also works with the Aim Controller, and actually holding a gun-like object makes the game far more immersive.

Plus they've now added free locomotion, as well as the original teleportation style.

I think you need to accept that a "AAA" title for VR is vastly different than what it is on console/pc.

There is a ton of content on PSVR and its very accessible and enjoyable. You're not going to find a God of War... but to me, I don't enjoy using it for more than two hours roughly at a time, so I don't want a big long game.

You can go higher end on the PC but it's not as streamlined. I also personally find the PSVR the most comfortable of all the headsets. I also don't fog it up as much as the others.

I am very excited for Ace Combat 7.. supposedly there is a 15 hour campaign in VR. Hopefully some pvp dogfighting as well.

In any case, there will always be new bundles or even new versions of the headset. If what you see doesn't draw you in, save your money until then.

Come on man.. You are comparing new and used if you wanna go that route you can buy used doom, used headset, used camera and get it all cheaper as well.

Well E3 is just around the corner so we'll see what's coming out next from Sony's conference. And I agree with uklamen that games in VR don't have to be AAA to be enjoyable and effective. VR is more about the immersion and the experience. Dreams is one of the biggest VR games coming out and it'll enable players to create, innovate and share their own VR worlds with others.

Someone mentioned in another thread to wait for E3 announcement next week to see if there will be a price drop, maybe that’s why we are seeing these discounts.
Sony has a TON of unmoved units, stores are getting sick of stocking something that isn't moving, so they're authorizing a pricebreak to try and move some of this before it's dead in the water.

I'm sorry but if you look at the PSVR trickle over the past year, you'll see this isn't a good horse to back, I've been burnt too many times by Sony products that they abandon to get tricked again. PS2 Camera, PS3 Camera and PS Move lolipops and Navigator, PSVita(this one still burns), Wonderbook(I didn't go in on this one but it still fizzled and died), there are more but I don't remember them because they died so fast. I guess you can throw Simuliview into there, that 3DTV tech that allowed splitscreen but with 3D Glasses it allowed both players to have a full screen, that lasted about 2 or 3 games.

My point is they have a record of this kind of behavior(take a risk let it float a while and then drop it cold) so don't be upset if in 2019's later half you've got hardware that nobody remembers they created.

There might be a few PSVR titles at E3, but I doubt anything that will push PSVR into a stage where it has more matured games(less shooting galleries and other basic experiences) and more realized titles. I hope I'm proven wrong on this one, then I'll jump in on the PSVR.

I see that "long" list of games there, few are real AAA and few are well made.
