Something for the Weekend: All the Best PlayStation VR Deals
This week VRFocus looks at the latest sales on the US PlayStation Store.
The PlayStation VR recently celebrated its first year of commercial availability with a sale on many software titles via the PlayStation Store. However, now that sale has closed, yet several titles are still available for a reduced price. VRFocus looks at the US PlayStation Store to bring you the best titles and downloadable content (DLC) available at a discounted price today.
The current sale on PlayStation VR content on the US PlayStation Store has an expectedly spooky theme. With Halloween fast approaching, it’s no surprise that experiences revolving around zombies and supernatural goings-on are featured in the latest round of price reductions. You can find every PlayStation VR title currently available at a reduced price below, including direct links for purchase from the US PlayStation Store.
nDreams’ second PlayStation VR title, Bloody Zombies, launched last month to significant acclaim. Despite being a 2D scrolling beat-‘em-up, developer Paw Print Games has cleverly implemented the virtual reality (VR) compatibility, woven deeply into a co-operative videogame that doesn’t demand all players have access to a head-mounted display (HMD). Bloody Zombies is available to purchase via the US PlayStation Store for $11.09 USD, down from $14.99, for a limited time.
One of Oasis Games’ first PlayStation VR titles, DYING: Reborn casts the player as an investigator who gets to unravel the case of a lost sister and the series of eerie events following the disappearance. The player will explore a series of fragments that together form three chapters of Mathew’s story. DYING: Reborn can be purchased via the US PlayStation Store for $4.99, down from $9.99, until 31st October 2017.
DYING: Reborn Ultimate Bundle
An expanded package including the above DYING: Reborn for PlayStation VR as well as the PlayStation Vita edition of the videogame, DYING: Reborn Ultimate Bundle includes six Chapters in the twisted story of Mathew, who went out to look for his missing sister only to find himself waking up in a dilapidated and eerie hotel with seemingly no way out. The DYING: Reborn Ultimate Bundle is now available to purchase for $12.49, reduced from $24.99.
Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul
The long-awaited PlayStation VR edition of Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul launched back in August 2017, and with it brought a new style of horror to VR. Armed with a flashlight, you find yourself exploring what appears to be a quiet average looking home in a woodsy neighbourhood. Before long, you discover you’re not alone as you unravel the mystery of what’s gone on in this house and struggle to survive the terror that begins to hunt you. This original story, based on the mythology of the massively popular Paranormal Activity film franchise, is built from the ground up for VR. You can check out VRFocus’ own Nina’s thoughts on Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul in a hands-on video, and purchase the videogame at a 30% discount from the US PlayStation Store.
Resident Evil VII biohazard
One of the PlayStation VR’s biggest hits to date, Resident Evil VII biohazard is on sale for $35.99, a reduction of 40% from its typical price. PlayStation Plus members can also save an extra 10% when purchasing from the PlayStation Store. Furthermore, all of the currently available DLC options are discounted, including the Resident Evil VII biohazard Season Pass, Banned Footage Vol.1 and Banned Footage Vol.2.
The final videogame currently available at a discounted price on the US PlayStation Store is arguably at odds with the Halloween theme of the other titles on offer; Thumper is a rhythm-action experience featuring blistering speed and brutal physicality. Playing as a space beetle, players will scream down the endless track and crash through punishing obstacles with simple controls. Thumper is available to purchase at a discounted price of $11.99, saving 40% from the typical price of $19.99, until 31st October 2017.
