Playstation VR (PSVR): Release Date and Where to Buy.
As promised, we’re opening our summer wave of PS VR pre-orders starting Thursday, June 30 at 7:00 AM Pacific on GameStop.com. Supplies are limited, and this is your final chance to pre-order. If you miss out, we will have product available in retail stores nationwide at launch.
So, get your F5 button ready or you’ll be waiting until the full launch on October 13, 2016.
UPDATE (June 15, 2016): Playstation VR (PSVR) will be available on October 13, 2016 along with 50 VR supported games. The announcement came during the company’s E3 press conference early this week. PSVR’s late arrival to the VR scene has fueled speculation of a refresh of the popular PS4 console; however, it appears their strategy could be in their gaming portfolio.
