This month Sony just started selling its Sony PlayStation VR priced at around $400 just for the headset however with a camera/headset/controller bundle it will cost around $500. Apart from that, users will need the obvious, a console and some games too. The PlayStation VR joined the race with HTC Vive and Samsung’s Oculus Rift. Both these are available earlier this year.
If the Oculus Rift or Vive are featured doorbusters then certainly they are the big prize. We will see some discounting on the headsets is what the users are expecting for this year’s Black Friday deals. If not just lower prices, some monthly subscriptions or gift cards might be included with these deals. Watchers also anticipate an Amazon pre-Black Friday sale offering the new offerings from Google. In addition, it will not be very surprising to see the Google Pixel smartphone bundled with it.
Phillip Dengler from Black Friday said that it would not be worth to expect a ton of discounts from the newly launched Sony PlayStation VR. Usually, during their first holiday season, it is standard to for consoles to knock off $50 from the current market price. The headsets will be sold bundled with the consoles at the full price but stores might include a $50 gift card for the users.
