It might be the week where everyone is talking about new standalone headset Oculus Quest but that’s not likely to worry Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) and its PlayStation VR. The headset has seen over 3 million sold and with this limited time deal a few more are likely to go out.
Currently UK retailer Argos has quite the offer for those interested in purchasing PlayStation VR. For £229.99 GBP you can pickup a PlayStation VR V2 with VR Worlds Mega Starter Bundle – which includes the videogame and PlayStation Camera – then add-on a PlayStation Move Twin Pack – worth £69.99 – for free and then select one of three titles, Wipeout Omega Collection, Firewall Zero Hour or The Persistence for free as well. These retail for £29.99, £24.99 and £15.99 respectively, so you can save a maximum of £100 in the deal.
Obviously with a deal like this time is short, with Argos only offering it until 3rd October 2018. It’s one of the best VRFocus has seen for sometime especially for UK customers – SIE tends to do more deals for the US market.
As for the videogames, Wipeout Omega Collection is certainly a fan favourite offering high speed racing and the VR version has an added treat, three new VR exclusive ships in HD, Fury and 2048 classes have been included. But Wipeout Omega Collection may not be for everyone due to its hectic nature.
Currently very popular is another PlayStation VR exclusive, Firewall Zero Hour. Having hit the top download spot for August, the tactical first-person shooter (FPS) is purely multiplayer, but developer First Contact Entertainment does recommend the PlayStation Aim controller which costs extra.
Or for those who like a few frights then there’s always sci-fi horror The Persistence. With procedurally generated levels each playthrough is never quite the same, plus there’s a companion mobile app allowing friends to join in and either help or hinder the VR player.
VRFocus will continue to keep its eye out for the latest deals and offers from around the world.
