Sony continues to try and get their gear in consumer's hands, which can only mean good things for those of us already invested. The key to VR succeeding, especially PSVR, is from large scale player adoption. PC based VR has a number of uses outside of the gaming space both in the pipeline and that are already being realized. But console VR depends on top game developers taking on the new technology and doing more with it than just tech demos. As Sony continues to get more headsets in living rooms the incentives for the developers to do this becomes more and more likely.
So Sony's latest discount are again welcome in my book. Sony's official site details the discounts which start Sunday and run through the 3rd of March. Available at GameStop, Walmart, Best Buy, and Target:
Truth be told the 1st and 3rd bundles are the best value. The Doom VFR doesn't make a lot of sense, because it's a subpar experience on PSVR and for $50 more it's worth having the motion controllers that so many other titles rely on. Or there is the cheap option of just getting into the space at the lowest entry point. Either way, VR is the new hotness and has the potential to do some amazing things in gaming. Hopefully it will stick around long enough to realize that potential. The more on board, the better that outlook gets.
