VR is a fantastic thing. It can also be quite expensive, so by bagging one of the best PlayStation VR deals, you can start playing virtual reality games without the headache of how much you paid. Now that PSVR 2 is out in the wild, we're hoping to see a big reduction on the original model too, so this is definitely the space to watch. 

No longer is PSVR the dumping ground for tech demos and 'experiences'. Now, picking up one of the best PlayStation VR bundles means opening the door to a ton of fully-fledged, triple-A games. For example, big hitters such as Skyrim (opens in new tab), Resident Evil 7 (opens in new tab), Doom (opens in new tab), and more all now have fully realized VR versions, and PSVR is also home to some amazing exclusives like Moss, Astro Bot, or Blood and Truth. 

These are some of the best-received virtual reality games of all time, and they're only available on PlayStation. Plus, PSVR is one of the easiest to set up and configure of the market's VR headsets, particularly the ones that require one of the best gaming PCs (opens in new tab) to run. Even with PSVR 2 now launched on PS5, you may just find a bargain in the world of the first PSVR iteration.

Without PlayStation VR’s pièce de résistance, you’d have a very tough time enjoying virtual reality: the PlayStation VR Headset provides the direct experiential means to transport yourself to virtual worlds. It’s actually a sleek bit of technology considering its affordability, boasting a resolution of 1080 x 1200 pixels per eye. 

Such crisp visuals make killing zombies in Arizona Sunshine or captaining your own starship in Star Trek: Bridge Crew (opens in new tab) all the more immersive, always remaining fully adjustable to ensure a comfortable fit as you play. Prices vary from different retailers so be sure to use our collected PlayStation VR bundle deals further down the page to make a true bargain a reality.

PlayStation Camera deals

Without a PS4 camera, your PlayStation VR headset will have nothing to track your hand or head movements, and thus simply will not work. The good news is that you’ll already be all set should you have an original PlayStation camera. However, Sony has since released this updated, more practical PlayStation VR model complete with a built-in TV-mount. 

This makes it much easier to adjust the next time you fancy taking a trip into virtual reality, potentially saving you a lot of time in the long run. Trust us when we say that this camera is used for more than just saying cheese, it’s vital to the PlayStation VR experience.

PlayStation Move controller deals

While there are many PlayStation VR games that work and play perfectly fine without the use of the PlayStation Move controllers, you’d really be missing out on some truly immersive experiences without them. Having two of these little bubble wand beauties allows for one-to-one hand tracking, letting you grip, punch, and throw objects to your heart’s content. 

Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality lets you create your own scientific concoction; while firing an uzi from a speeding van in PlayStation VR Worlds (opens in new tab) makes you feel like an action star. The PlayStation Move controllers can be purchased as singles or a twin pack, but we’d highly recommend the latter to unlock their full potential.

Much like a lot of gaming tech right now, there's limited US availability at the moment but starting at Amazon US (opens in new tab) is a good start - good luck!

PlayStation Aim Controller deals

For first-person shooter fans, there’s rarely anything more satisfying than looking down the sights of your gun, lining up a perfect shot, before taking down that enemy precisely and accurately. Sony’s PlayStation Aim Controller is what makes this possible in PlayStation VR. 

Far from the usual hunk of cheap plastic you’d expect to find in previous console generations, the PlayStation Aim Controller is a quality peripheral that feels satisfying to use and hold in the hands. Compatible games include squad-based shooter Bravo Team, Sci-Fi adventure Farpoint, and professional badass simulator Doom VFR. Once set up, there’s no better way to experience shooters in PlayStation VR.

Also, don't forget that PSVR2 is here! Check out our PSVR2 review to see if the new headset is worth picking up as well as how much PSVR 2 costs and what bundles are available. In general, you can then read up on the best VR headsets to see what the competition is like.
